Wayne Newborn Photographer – Baby Jasper

Jasper is the fourth of four sweet boys that I have been photographing for years and years.  I think I have photographed this family longer than any other client beginning with mom and dad’s engagement session in New York City almost ten years ago (is my math correct, Natasha?)  I have immensely enjoyed watching these boys and this family grow year after year and according to mom, their family is finally complete.  While I am sad there are no more newborn sessions in our future, I look forward to the privilege of continuing to record precious moments for this family for years to come.  Without further adieu, the final newborn session for from the T family is below for your viewing pleasure!

Newtown Square Newborn Photographer – Baby Colin

Colin is already six months old so I’m slightly behind on my blogging efforts but let’s forge on and appreciate how tiny his toes are!  Colin was born early so he was extra small, sleepy and cuddly.  My heart skipped a beat holding him, he was as light as a feather.  This newborn session was completed in record time because we did not take one break to feed, soothe or calm him.  He was truly amazing and such a sweet little peanut.  I have photographed him since, so stay tuned for a much bigger, and more cuddly version of this baby coming to the blog soon.

Morris Arboretum Family Session – Chestnut Hill

I have been photographing Katie, Dan and their beautiful children for a few years now and this was the third session in their package of three sessions since Caleb was born.  The best part of my job is seeing my clients year after year and watching their families grow.  It is so fun to see a couple transform into parents, to a family of four or five and then to continue to watch the children grow each year.  This was our second shoot at Morris Arboretum in Chestnut Hill and it was perfect capturing these images in the summer when everything was blooming so beautifully.  Our last session there was in the Fall so we were able to get a lot of variety in spite of being at the same location.  These are a few of my favorites, I hope you like them.

de Seversky Mansion Wedding Photographer – Claire and Dan

I headed to Long Island to meet Claire and Dan for the first time on their wedding day.  They planned from afar in Miami and I am so glad they chose me to photograph their beautiful wedding day without having met with me about it prior to the actual event.  It was my pleasure to also photograph Claire’s friend’s wedding and her cousin’s wedding so there were many familiar faces there which I always love.  It is such a wonderful part of my job being able to reconnect with past couples and see how their lives have changed and their families grown.  I don’t get out to Long Island as much as I did when I lived in New York City but I always love an excuse to head back to New York and this day was no exception.

I had photographed a wedding at the de Seversky Mansion once before in the cold of winter on a beautiful, snowy and romantic evening.  As you could imagine, July gave me a completely different set of photographs from the same venue since we traded in the snow for the heat of summer.  It was fun to see how different weddings could be in different seasons.    I loved the colors Claire chose.  The coral and light pink were soft and romantic and the pop of her sisters’ brightly colored dresses really added interested to the color palette and the photographs.  Every detail was meticulously taken care of and it all added up to a truly beautiful event.

I hope you enjoy the photos from this lovely day!

Marlton Children’s Photographer – Maura

I photographed Colleen and Dave’s wedding back in 2009.  I have loved catching up with them as they have added two beautiful children to their family.  This is Maura and she will be five in a few short weeks.  Colleen’s family has a tradition of having a portrait made of each child when they turn five and I absolutely love the idea.  A portrait of each grandchild hangs in her parents’ home and now Maura’s can be added to the wall.  I really loved this session.  It took me back to my photography roots.  I had a huge interest in photographing children when I first took a serious interest in photography.  I did a lot of babysitting and the children became the subjects of the majority of my high school and college work.  I forgot how much I enjoyed photographing kids as the individual subject of a portrait.  So much of my work is relational, which I love, but getting to know a five year old as an individual is something I haven’t had the opportunity to do in awhile.  I loved watching Maura from behind my camera.  Colleen and Dave, you are doing a wonderful job raising a sweet, funny, whimsical and loving girl.  Thank you so much for sharing this special age with me.  See you very soon for baby #3!  I can’t wait.
