It's tough for me to put myself out there sometimes... there are a lot of talented photographers, and though I believe in my own work, I've never been good at "hard selling". I finally had the courage to get a video made to promote my work, and I'm SO GLAD that I did! I think this really gives families an idea of what a session with me would feel like, and what the images will look like at the end. Plus, it was really fun to make... thanks to Lee Vetter.

I photographed Shira and Shawns's wedding... 9? years ago? I think? ... they are now two of the most spectacularly fun, laid back parents to two of the most spirited, hilarious, adorable kids ever. I am not the least bit surprised, but I am really glad that I got to see this next chapter in their lives!
This family made the best of a cold, windy, day... and we worked QUICKLY so we could all duck back indoors and enjoy hot chocolate and heat. Still, we got some pretty great photos.

Photographing another photographer is exciting, and nerve wracking, and one of the toughest, and most fun things you can do. You REALLY want to do a great job for them because you know they pour their heart and soul into making other people's families look great, and they deserve that too... also, you know they know the difference between quality, and ... not-so-quality. So it makes you nervous. Let me say that I am so glad to have traded services with Christine Brancroft (https://www.manayunkphotography.com/archive) we goofed off, had fun, ate pizza, and got awesome pictures of each other's families. Not shown here are the mosquitos, humidity, and sweltering heat at our "autumn" session... oh well. It was all worth it.

On the first day of the school year, students at Saint James school of Philadelphia are presented with their blazers for the year. The presentation is made with celebration, hope, and encouragement by members of the community. These kids are amazing, and they are going to do great things in the coming years, so watch for them!
