Crabtree’s Kittle House Wedding – Shefali and Kieran

Now that busy season is officially over and I have more time to devote to sharing weddings and sessions, I am excited to share images of all of the wonderful people I photographed in 2016.  This post takes us back to a beautiful spring day in May at Crabtree’s Kittle House in Chappaqua, New York.  I met Shefali through her brother and his wife, whose engagement session I photographed in New York City in 2012.  Shefali was such a laid-back bride and it was truly an enjoyable day for everyone.  It is so refreshing to see a bride and groom relax and just enjoy the entirety of their wedding day.  After spending so much time planning,  I love when a couple can let go and enjoy the day they have been anticipating for so long.  I hope you enjoy the images from their day.

Philadelphia Family Portrait – Risa, Chris, Isla and Theo

I met Risa through a longtime client of mine, whose portraits I will also be posting shortly.  In a comprehensive list of referrals, Risa chose me, so thank you for appreciating my work in a sea of wonderful photographers, Risa!  She is the owner of a beautiful blog of which I’ve become a fan.  If you are looking to add to your blogroll, check out her beautiful page here.  She discusses all things style, kids, life, parenting and beyond.  I am sure that at least some of her posts will resonate with you, as they did with me.

Risa and Chris live in Philadelphia with their adorable children so it was a natural backdrop for our Fall session.  The weather was unseasonably warm for October so I think a last minute wardrobe change was in order for the whole family.   Knowing how much time I spend planning the wardrobe for my own family sessions, it would have thrown me off completely, but everyone seemed relaxed and ready when I arrived at the Rodin Museum.  When you are trying to corral two toddlers for the perfect photograph, it is best to just let go and let the session take shape on it’s own.  Risa and Chris did that perfectly and I think it shows in the images.  Thanks to the entire family for being so laid back and a special HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY to Isla today!!

Happy Holidays!

It has warmed my heart this holiday season to open beautiful holiday cards made from photographs I’ve taken for you.  Thank you to my friends and clients who have given me the opportunity to create lasting memories for you and your families and taken the time to send me a card.  I have loved each and every card you have sent, including the ones that came after this photo was taken.  Merry Christmas to you and cheers to a fabulous new year.  I look forward to seeing you all again in 2017!
