What is more fun than a little football fan celebrating his birthday?! Pretty much nothing! But adding in a cake smash does make it just a little more fun. Erin wanted an intimate session for her son’s first birthday, so I meet her at her home. We started out in the backyard with Easton in an adorable green plaid shirt and jeans. As I made funny noises and asked him if he knew touchdown, he smiled laughed and played in the leaves.
For his second look mommy changed him into his Eagle jersey, after all Erin might be the Eagles biggest fan. (Easton had an Eagles birthday party.)
Being that a cake smash is pretty messy we ended our session sitting on the floor in the kitchen. I set up a few balloons as Erin got Easton in his jeans and suspenders, I grabbed a few shots of the cake before we let Easton have at it. He jumped right in and started playing with it, although he was not a fan of eating the cake.
Here’s to another year of creating memories!
It’s known that I love shooting sports, I get to meet so many new athletes each year and spend my days on the fields. My latest adventure as a sports photographer was just a few weeks ago at Blue Mountain Resort. I’ve taken pictures just for fun as I was skiing down the mountain on my little point and shoot or GoPro, but this was the first time that I was getting to set up shots and create portraits. Renae and Tom headed out with me on the mountain, we got to the terrain park that had a great jump at the end of the park. After a number of jumps, we headed down the mountain to start again at the top of the terrain park again.
Now we were focused on the bars where Renae and Tom flew off with grace. I’m looking forward to getting to shoot snowboarders again and maybe next time add in a few skiers.
It’s TLM Productions 100th blog post! I can’t believe that I have been blogging for almost three years and have hit 100 blogs. This little corner of the internet has been my little home away from home with company, I have loved bring my clients stories to life and not just show their pictures. I have also shared a few personal blogs over the last year, as I am planning my wedding; don’t worry there will be a few more before this year is up.
Learning how to write out the stories of TLM’s clients was a learning curve, but it was the perfect way for me to build an even better relationship with them. Some of you have even shared your thoughts that you wanted to share on the blog too! Sharing with you are your favorite pictures from Instagram this past year!
This was your absolute favorite, Tommy standing in front of this shinning red Dodge!

What happens when you have a group of besties?! An amazing session full of laughter, smiles, whispered jokes, and did I mention the laughter?
I was in Scranton for a short vacation and a chance to get to see my sister, since we didn’t get to see each other for the holiday. It’s a cool day in early December, I may have been all bundled up, but the girls wore fall colored knitted sweaters, loose fitting flannels, paired with jeans, leggings, and of course the latest boots. (I will say that I wish I had this much style while I was in college.) While planning the roomies session, they had to choose the location, since I didn’t know the area and they wanted to be on campus. The girls picked a great location, down by a dried up pond.
I know I mentioned this before, but the laughter was contagious from these girls. I’m looking forward to getting to work with them again.
The last few leaves hanging on, the quickly fading light of fall, Pennypacker Park in Haddonfield has a long ivy trail with a lake, the fading orange leaves all made for the perfect backdrop for Alexis’s senior portraits. Alexis and I meet last spring during her family’s portrait session, after their family pictures, they knew they wanted a different kind of senior picture.
Alexis wore a beautiful rust orange sweater, jeans, and knee high boots.
She even let me try a new firefly look in pictures and laughed at me the whole time, while I tried to get the perfect look.
I’m looking forward to Alexis’ next winter, snowy themed session.
