Lily’s family has been coming to Ocean City for over 100 years. Justin had been on seven family vacations with her and proposed on Lily’s 25th birthday on the beach at sunrise. So it was only natural they take their engagement photos in OCNJ, exactly a year later at sunrise!

When Jess and Dan showed up to take their maternity portraits, I screamed inside. Maybe out loud. Jess was quite literally glowing and I was so excited to capture these precious memories for them.

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!

I’ve worked with the wonderful C family before during an extended family shoot and I was so excited to see them again on this gorgeous early spring day for another round of family photos. We met just in time to take pictures for little M’s second birthday. To celebrate, she wore a balloon dress with a pompom crown, carried a princess wand, and pushed around a vintage carriage that her older sister also had for her second birthday. It was the perfect princess shoot for this sweet birthday girl!
