The Smith Family welcomed in a pretty cute addition to their already cute family. Baby Gabe, just two months old was showered in hugs and kisses during their family photoshoot. We got so lucky with a break in the heatwave and some pretty golden light. I absolutely loved all of their photos and am so excited to share some of my favorites!

Dan + Gina's wedding day took place in beautiful Montgomery County, PA with picturesque landscapes of rolling hills, historic farmhouses and pretty tree lined gravel roads. I love all of the love that is so obviously seen between Dan & Gina. They are super sweet and laid back. It was supposed to thunderstorm their entire wedding day, but they cared more about being in the moment and it didn't even end up raining until we went inside to party! (And then it down-poured) One of my favorite parts of their day was when Gina and her Dad sang and played a song for all of the Mother's for mothers day and choreographed the cutest little dance! But enough talking, you'll just have to see for yourself!
Thanks to all of the wonderful vendors who helped make their day so beautiful and fun of course a shout out to to my talented second shooter, Kelly!

This family's christmas cards are going to be so cute this year! This was the first time I went to Shadybrook to do some photos, and I'm so happy we did! The pretty Christmas decor made for the perfect backdrop as we frolicked around. :)
Courtney + Bobby's wedding at the Wainright House in Rye, New York was one of the prettiest days I have ever seen! As much as it was pretty, it was also beautifully filled with so much love. Courtney and Bobby's families already felt like one giant family - that was one of my favorite things about their wedding, being surrounded by people that we're all so happy to be a part of their day, even though I could choose a hundred other things. From the beautiful outdoor lake ceremony to the amazing white tent reception - everything came together so perfectly for this sweet and fun couple and I couldn't be happier for them. Congratulations Courtney + Bobby!
Laura & Ryan – I just love these two! You might remember their beautiful faces from their Tyler State Park Engagement session about a year ago! Laura & Ryan had my dream wedding with pretty light, beautiful weather, colorful leaves and flowers & the sweetest ceremony with lots of laughs and smiles as they exchanged their vows. I knew Laura & Ryan would be my new favorite when they told me they just wanted to hike in the woods on their wedding day. I hope you like their gorgeous fall wedding at Bowman's Wildflower Preserve and The Lambertville Station Inn – I had SO many favorites, it was hard to narrow down, but I did my best! <3

The last time I took photos of Maura, she was 3 weeks old. She was adorable then, but I swear she just keeps getting cuter and cuter. Maura is such a happy baby, she's so expressive and loves to smile. She also loves cheerios and her sock monkey. This baby girl brightened my whole day and I'm missing her so much already. I can't wait to take more pictures of this beautiful family - Julia, Wes & Maura you are my favorite.
Alyssa was such a sweetie to work with. Her plans after graduation are to go to college for event planning which fits her personality perfectly. She loves organizing and is so put together for just a senior! Who knows? Maybe one day we'll get to work a wedding together!

My couples inspire me every day when it comes to love because relationships are hard. Choosing someone every day for the rest of your life is the biggest commitment and honestly, me being a single person - it's something that scares me. I know my couples are choosing each other not because they're perfect but because they're able to see through their imperfections. Your relationships aren't perfect. In fact, on the way down Cris and Tiffany were giving me some insight on how they knew they were ready to be committed for life; and what was so refreshing was they didn't just talk about all of the things that were perfect. What stood out to me was the things that were not so perfect but they still chose to love anyway.
These pictures are important because I know that every relationship will go through bumps and your engagement is so special and so exciting. It's probably one of the happiest points in your relationship because it's so crazy-amazing that you both are choosing to do life together. I want my couples to be able to look back on these pictures on the rocky days and remember how much love they have for each other and why they said yes to forever in the first place.
Baby Austin just turned 1 and to celebrate Charlotte and Chris were surprised with a photoshoot from their sweet friends! It makes my heart soo so happy knowing they will get to cherish these photos forever and ever; and I just couldn't be happier with how they came out. Austin was such a cutie and he loved nothing more than to be as high as he could get on his daddy's shoulders, so it was no surprised that when I tried to get him to sit down on the ground, he wanted none of that.
I had such a fun time with this one and I loved the location Charlotte chose, the Race Street Pier in Philadelphia. This might be my new favorite spot in Philly even!
Charlotte and Chris, thank you so much for letting me shoot you guys :) Austin, Happy birthday little dude!!
