For their engagement session, Lorraine and Dillon wanted to choose a place that was meaningful to them as a couple–which I always recommend. They spend a lot of time on the Haverford campus, walking through the trails and watching the ducks in the pond.
From the moment I arrived, Lorraine and Dillon were so gracious. It was a treat to explore campus with them, traipsing through paths they walked regularly and posing in front of their favorite spots around Haverford. The campus reminded me a lot of where I went to school in Oregon–I have to admit I was a bit homesick while shooting this session!

We met just in time to take pictures for little M’s second birthday.

It was the perfect princess shoot for this sweet birthday girl!
