First Birthday in Marlton, NJ | Easton

Marlton 1st Birthday

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.

This year feels like it has gone by so fast, so many sessions and amazing new clients. Shall we take a look back on 2017 as it is coming to an end?

This year I got to spend some time with a handsome little guy during his first year, and of course we had to finish off his first year with a cake smash session!

Senior Portraits

Getting to work with so many creative seniors has been so much fun this year and I am looking forward to this coming year. First let’s throw it back to March when we got our final snow day of the 2016/2017 winter. Maddy came out and rocked her session in a knitted sweater and cream colored scarf, while it was freezing she braved the cold without her super cute army green knee length coat.

Senior Vintage Styled Shoot

Alexis looked gorgeous in her rust orange sweater and jeans for her fall. We caught the last few colors that were still hanging on. As we wandered the orange and yellow leafed covered trails, the setting sun created that magical golden light as it peaked through the trees.

Senior Portraits

We can’t forget about Tom’s early spring look, he pulled together a grayish blue button down and faded jeans as he kicked a soccer ball around on the field. I knew we were not going to get away without Tom kicking the ball around a little, before heading over the his high school for an outfit change and a few more pictures.

Weddings

The bells were ringing all year long, this was the first year that TLM did a handful of weddings and here are a few of our favorite dresses from this year.

 

Samantha’s ivory beaded, flowy straight line gown was gorgeous at her Mount Vernon, NJ beach wedding. Samantha’s dress billowed around her and Matthew as they said “I do,” as she headed down to walk along the water for their bridal portraits, her dress blew in the wind.

Philadelphia Weddings

Next up is Denise’s elegant mermaid wedding dress! The ruching and ivory lace design across the bodice and white lace trim were beautiful with the full tulle skirt.

Last but not least is, Lauren’s a-line ivory lace skirt and silk top, everything was pulled together with a lovely silver beaded designed belt.

Camden Waterfront Family Portraits | Toni + Fran + Symone

 

I love getting to shoot in new places, this time it was on the Camden Waterfront, in front of the Adventure Aquarium. I had been waiting for the urban adventure seeking family to join me for this location. The Philadelphia skyline in the background was gorgeous and the sun glittering off the Delaware River was stunning for this early evening family portrait session. We walked along the waterfront trail and enjoyed laughs and smiles and jokes all around.

It’s so much fun when a client comes up with a idea, just to see if it will become a wonderful artistic photo. Toni was looking at their reflection in the windows behind me as I was shooting, she asked if I thought it would be a good picture. I agreed that it would look nice, but I was not sure about the blue or the way the reflection was looking. Once I turned it black and white, it turned out to be the perfect artsy portrait to be the centerpiece for her wall gallery.

Washington Township Lake Park Family Portraits

It’s a beautiful spring day and the sun is shining bright, but not as bright as the Ortiz family. They got out of the car in full smiles and already laughing. We started our short hike to the Washington Lake Park, or as I like to call it the secret lake; not many people realize it is hidden behind the first lake. We started our session off on the dock, before moving over to the trails. Everyone was having fun, although I’m pretty sure their favorite part was once we headed back out towards the athletic fields. Alexis and Joshua have played sports for years, so portraits on the fields made them feel right at home. I think everyone’s favorite photo before they even saw it, was when I told them to “tackle” mom; don’t worry they were nice.
