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 ...

I photographed a bit of my own family's Sunday exploring in the woods.  These are the people who make my world sing ...

Waiting for Baby - Philadelphia Family Maternity Photographer

Nina is one of those kids that just totally steals your heart -- immediately.  She greeted me with a huge smile on her face and spent our entire session snuggling and playing with her mom and dad.  She ran, she explored, and she twirled around in the woods in her favorite dress.  And she seems to be pretty excited about becoming a big sister in a few weeks.  I had the best time doing a family maternity session with these three in one of my favorite Philadelphia spots.  I can't wait to see them again when their little guy arrives ...

Michael Jackson Living Room Jams.

My kids don't always get along, but when they do, it's magical.  Michael Jackson sing-a-longs have become a regular thing in our house --  and on the afternoon pictured here, Rayna taught Ember the art of belting out "Beat It" with some serious emotion.  Most days with these two are total chaos, but I love the pauses in that chaos that lead to them being so in sync ... 

I'm moving toward capturing my clients' families the same way that I photograph my own -- with a focus on the little things that make the everyday so special.  If you'd like to book your own documentary family session with me, please get in touch!

Jackson & Mama -- Documentary Family Photographer

Photographing Jackson and his beautiful mama was one of the highlights of my year so far.  They played, they snuggled, they danced around their living room.  He practiced scooting across the floor with the most adorable crawl, and then they snuggled some more.  Spending time with these two renewed my spirit and energy, and I went home from this session appreciating and loving my own kids a little more ....

Penelope Laughing. Philadelphia Documentary Family Photography

I've had the pleasure of knowing this sweet family for a little while now.  They live around the corner from me, and Penelope (who happens to be the COOLEST kid on the planet) and my daughter have gotten some serious playtime in over the years.  Penny never fails to put a smile on my face.  Her laugh is just incredibly contagious and her personality is a force to be reckoned with!  I had a blast with these three hanging at their place and taking a stroll around Passyunk Square ...
