The M Family | One Year Session at Longwood Gardens, PA

This was my first session of 2017 and if this session indicates what is in store for me this year, I am so excited!!  We spent the morning at Longwood Gardens, and it was one of my most favorite sessions yet.  It was the perfect combination of lifestyle and documentary and I just loved meeting this family.  Little kids don't like to sit still for long and this location is perfect for that.  There is lots to explore and see and we don't have to "sit still" for more than a few seconds here and there.  I love exploring the children's garden with my clients... and my own two little ones! <3

Vera One Year | Ridley Creek State Park Photographer

I've known Vera's mom since we were seven.  We did summer swimming together, went to school together, and now are moms together.  I am so thankful to have the opportunity to photograph my friends - new and old <3 I don't take that lightly.  I loved spending the afternoon at Ridley Creek State Park with these five (!) to capture some images for Vera's first birthday.  Vera adores her big siblings and always has her eye on them.  Pretty soon, she will be able to keep up with them too :)  Thank you for trusting me to capture these memories and fleeting moments for you!

Noah is One | Longwood Gardens Family Photographer

I worked with Noah and his family for his newborn photos and I was so excited to see them again for Noah's first birthday.  We spent the evening exploring Longwood Gardens and even enjoyed a bit of cake ;)  It's amazing how much babies change in the first year... but also how much they stay the same.  I love getting to see all of these babies grow up! 

Asa is (almost) One! | Haverford Family Photographer

It's hard to believe that it had almost been a year since I had done this little guy's newborn session.  We met up at the Haverford Duck Pond for this Simple Session and enjoyed exploring, looking for geese (we found some!), and catching up.  We ended up with a beautiful morning after having to reschedule for rain and we couldn't have had picked a better spot.

James is One | Philadelphia Family Photographer

It's amazing how quickly the first year goes.  I did James' newborn photos a year ago and I was excited to catch up with him again now that he is a walking one-year-old!  He was one of the smallest babies I'd ever held so I couldn't believe how big he was today!  His 1st birthday party was over Memorial Day weekend and I loved capturing all of the little details that went in to the party.  The kids absolutely loved the music and the start of summer fun :)

Henry is One! A snowy, one year old session | Radnor, PA Family Photographer

I was so excited to work with Henry and his family again.  I did Henry's six month session a few months ago and suddenly, he was one!  He was the happiest little guy and I loved following him around the first floor of their house.  He was eager to explore and just adored his big brother.  We had so much fun capturing his little details and playing outside in the snow once his big brother woke up.  We even had time for hot chocolate! 

A snowy day at the Haverford Duck Pond | Haverford PA Family Photographer

It was a winter wonderland at the Haverford Duck Pond when we got together to take one year old pictures of the twins (we had no idea we'd have such snowy luck when mom booked the session last October!).  As beautiful and sunny as it was, it was so cold that morning!!  The kids had lots of cuddles from their parents throughout the session to keep warm.
