Allmond Family -- Documentary Photo Story at Home

What if I told you that we can make beautiful, meaningful photographs in the comfort of your home, no matter where you live? That you can drink your coffee during our time together and that your kids can even stay in their pajamas if you want them to? What if I told you that I’ll encourage you to leave the Lego creations and unfinished art projects out, that you don’t need to clean before I come? What if I told you that I don’t even need all of you to look at the camera at the same time?

After all, a journalistic approach to in-home photography is meant to capture a bit of your real — moving through a part of your day with the people you love, in the place that holds all of you together. When your kids are grownups they’ll love looking back through an album filled with photos that highlight the details of where they lived and who they lived there with.

Doing this in-home session with the Allmond family was nothing short of this type of ordinary, everyday magic. I loved having them in front of my camera, documenting a bit of their home life — breakfast, jam session, snuggling. Such a great morning with this adorably fun crew. Thank you, Allmonds for trusting me to spend time with you!





Alachkar Family - A Philadelphia Newborn Session

While it's fun to head out to beautiful places to take photos, I really do love capturing families at home, and my session with these four was no exception.  They're warm, fun and connected -- and pretty smitten with each other.  We started off with piano tunes and a baby bath and ended with some snuggling.  Saturday morning perfection! 

Thank you, Alachkar family, for letting me hang out with you for a bit ...

Waiting for Ollie - Philadelphia Maternity Photography

When Rachel and Seth asked me to photograph their adorable family a few months back, I was thrilled.  Their session was my first of the year after my own maternity leave, and it was so sweet hanging with them as they were transitioning into becoming a family of five.  I arrived as Tobin and Aliza were just waking up, and spent the morning-- brushing teeth, making (and eating!) breakfast, jumping on beds, and snuggling up.  And let me tell you, this family just knows how to love each other!  Ollie, you are one lucky little guy ...

Evening with Eamon -- Philadelphia Family Photographer

It was so incredibly difficult to choose favorites from this session --- The greenest grass, a super snuggly boy, and the sweetest parents.  What a wonderful night with these three.  Erin, David, and Eamon, thank you for trusting me to photograph you exploring one of your favorite places together!

Nathaniel and Jacob - Philadelphia Family Photography

I met Susan and Rocco a year ago when they booked their first family session with me.  I had a ton of fun with their boys then, and I couldn't wait to see them again this spring! I just love this foursome's positive energy -- the way they play hard, love each other up, and just fall into each other's arms so naturally.  Nathaniel and Jacob are such lucky kids! This rainy morning session was full of movement and sweetness ....

Brand Family - Haddonfield, NJ

I've known this beautiful family for as long as I can remember.  Erica & Jordan are old friends who I don't get to see nearly as often as I would like to, and I couldn't wait to spend some time with them once we got this session on the calendar.  They were huge supporters of my venture into family photography early on, trusting me to capture their oldest boys when they were just tiny twin babes and encouraging me to turn my love for photographing children into a business.   I was so thrilled to head to their new home to tell a piece of their story again, years later, where these super cool brothers showed off their sweet, silly, and snuggly sides ...

Philadelphia Waterfront Session - Family Photography

There's a crisp chill in the air today, but just a few weeks ago, I was soaking up the sun and enjoying the last of the summer warmth along the gorgeous Philadelphia waterfront with this family.  I've been photographing them since before big brother was even born, and it has been so incredible watching them grow and learn together as a family.  And there is something about the water that just brings out all of the silly, sweet, beautiful pieces of our children ...

One Year of Indigo

I've known Samm and John for a while now, and have had the pleasure of photographing them a few times -- most importantly for the birth of their sweet boy Indigo in 2015.  I couldn't wait for our recent family session, which they scheduled to document their little love at age one, cozied up together in their new home.  I love watching my clients' families grow and evolve, and I had the best time capturing one of their mornings together ....

A Morning with Emma - Philadelphia, New Jersey Lifestyle Photography

Most recently, I've been loving family sessions that start inside and then move outdoors. In this case, I got to begin by documenting a bit of Emma's every day in the comfort of her most familiar place, and then move to watching her explore with the grass beneath her toes, before coming back inside to wind down for her morning nap.  What a perfect, cozy session with this gorgeous one year-old and her parents ...
