Kristen + John \\ Thornton, PA Engagement Session

Say hello to Kristen and John! They’re both baristas with the dream of opening up their own coffee shop one day. I’m planning on being their first customer, and I’m bringing you all with me.

John recently got into leather crafting and he already has handmade wallets for sale in stores! I got a little excited when they brought along some of the koozies he made for our session.

Doesn’t Kristen’s smile make you want to smile? I can’t get over it.

When your clients say, “What about if we got on that rock?” you reply, “We are going to be great friends.”

Josh+Karen+Jace+Jonathan+Arielle \\ Vorhees, NJ Family Session

I’m so pleased to re-introduce you to one of my very first clients EVER. Karen & Josh first hired me almost THREE¬†years ago to photograph their family, back when I was still a student and they were still a family of four. AH! Baby Arielle has since joined them and I hopped on over to New Jersey to capture their lives for a little while!

After a little warm-up time inside, we ventured outside! And December was so kind to us and kept its blusteriness to a minimum :)

The best thing about babies is baby hats.

I got a good giggle out of Arielle’s face here… I promise she didn’t topple over :)

Best Of 2014: Getting Ready

As 2014 comes to a close and 2015 draws near (cue the futuristic robot music), I thought it’d be fun to do a few¬†round-ups of some of my favorite images from this year! This week I’m starting with the ‘getting-ready’ portion of the day – my favorite part of every wedding day. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE portrait time, and the ceremonies, and the parties, and… okay, I love weddings. But you just can’t beat the joy and anticipation that comes before the ceremony. It’s the best.

One of my FAVORITE bridal portraits I’ve shot to date. But really, I love them all.

The grooms haven’t been getting much love in this post, but only because I’m usually with the bride all morning while my second shooters are with the groom! But sometimes I get lucky and get to sneak over to photograph both :) Hi George!
