Photographs on the beach are always so dreamy. The way the light peeks over the grassy slopes and reflects off the water is hard to beat–there’s something so magical and carefree about running barefoot through the sand and splashing through the water!
This was such a special session for so many reasons. It was my third time working with the C family, and the cherry blossoms hold great personal significance to them. Fairmount Park in Philadelphia during peak cherry blossom bloom was the perfect setting to photograph the beautiful bond Daitza has with her two girls.
This early morning fall session was the first milestone in the G family’s membership plan. While being in front of the camera isn’t Lauren’s favorite thing (so she thought!), she knows how important it is to regularly document her son’s life and to be in photographs together.
It was such a treat to see how much little Maggie has grown after I took her newborn portraits last winter. She’s such a calm, happy baby and was a joy to photograph as she soaked up all the love from her parents.
Summer at the shore means long days on the beach, afternoon cookouts, and the chance for families to finally take some time off and gather together. Photo sessions on the beach are extremely popular during the summer months, especially for extended families who don’t often have everyone in the same place at the same time. If you’re planning on having professional family photos taken at the beach this summer, keep reading for 5 things you won’t want to forget!
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!
Valley Forge Park is such a good location for family photos. Not only is it a massive national park full of Revolutionary War history, but there are so many unique photo backdrops to discover!
This beautiful family had the most perfect timing for their fall family photos. The weather was still warm enough to be comfortable without a jacket, and the leaves were the perfect mix of green and golden.
Fall in Philadelphia is exquisite. Growing up on the west coast, autumn was still filled with colors but was short-lived and accompanied by an almost-daily showering of rain. Autumn on the east coast is warmer, drier, and much sunnier.
I’m so glad I was able to squeeze this sweet family in for a last minute beach session in Ocean City when their original photographer unfortunately got sick!
