Prom at the Adventure Aquarium | Camden, NJ | Lauren + Mark

Prom at the Adventure Aquarium

Camden, NJ | Lauren + Mark

I love getting to work with my clients again and this time Lauren was all dressed up in her gorgeous red two piece prom gown, ready to prom at the Adventure Aquarium. We did her portraits in her backyard, which has a lake! The water in the background was beautiful, but all eyes were on Lauren and Mark. When I arrived they were already taking family pictures, it was pretty hot outside so I was glad to see they were hiding in the shade.

 

Mark and Lauren figured out how they wanted to walk out for promenade. I had to capture the twirling and laughs, as everyone there was helping the two of them decide which would be the best spin.

A Blue Bell, PA Wedding at Normandy Farms | Lauren and Matthew

A Blue Bell, PA Wedding at Normandy Farms | Lauren and Matthew

 

Where do I even being about this wedding?! It was a rainy October day, but the smiles and laughter coming from the groomsmen when I arrived, showed a little bit of rain was not going to stop this couple’s special day. This was only my second time working with only the groomsmen and I was not sure how to do getting ready pictures, when they were already dressed. I had met the guys at the St. Matthias Catholic Church in Bala Cynwyd, PA, inside was beautiful just like out of the story books. I didn’t feel that this would tell their story as the groomsmen. We headed to the steps and the cloudy spitting skies to get some funny and serious pictures.

When I told the guys to be themselves and do a “silly” picture, one of the groomsmen pulled out his keys and handed them to Matthew. I heard him say laughing, “This is your last chance to get out of this.” Don’t worry the groomsmen also gave Lauren the out if she wanted it too. 🙂

After a beautiful ceremony and pictures at the church, we headed to Normandy Farms. I was excited to see the venue as I had not been there before. The Silos Ballroom was decorated with white string lights, mason jars and pumpkins as the centerpieces with some of the tables having flowers that matched the bridesmaids bouquets. I loved the s’mores party favors with the tag that said,

“Sending you home with

S’More Love

Lauren & Matthew”

How cute is that? What an adorable favor for an elegant country vibe wedding!

They danced the night away with their family and friends, only stopping to do the bouquet and garter toss, and of course the cutting of a wonderful cake that featured their two fur babies.

Lauren and Matthew closed the night with a tribute slow dance for the people that meant so much to them but passed away. They had me tearing up as they entered the dance floor with Cole Swindell’s “You Should Be Here” playing and everyone slowy joining them.

Congratulations Matthew and Lauren!

Here’s to many more amazing memories!

Prom at The Mansion on Main Street | Renae + Tom

Prom at The Mansion on Main Street Voorhees, NJ | Renae + Tom

 

It’s PROM!! Well it was on Friday night for Tom and Renae, talk about looking a-maz-ing! I know I have said this before about them in last year’s Junior and Senior prom posts, but with it being their last and final prom, it was a different kind of feeling. Yes, I just said last and final prom, Tom and Renae are a year apart in school so this was their fourth high school prom. I thought going to my two proms was overwhelming, but Renae and Tom made all of their glamorous nights look so easy.

 

Tom looked handsome in his all black suit with a white jacket. He also borrowed a friends car so he could drive Renae around in style. Renae’s ivory lace and blush Jovani dress was gorgeous and showed off her tan beautifully. They danced and twirled under the lovely willows and whispered secrets on the bridge.

Marlton, NJ Three Month Old Pictures | Easton

Marlton, NJ Three Month Old Pictures | Easton

 

When you’re a new mom you want all the pictures you can have of your new bundle of joy. After all, they change so much in just the first three months. I joined Erin and her son Easton at their home, for his three month session. Our session was actually on the day Easton turned three months, which was fun and doesn’t happen often.

Because Easter was not too far away from when we did our session, we included in some easter fun with Easton’s three month old session.

 

 

 

 

 

Love and Joy.

Gloucester Township, NJ High School Senior Portraits | Tom

Gloucester Township, NJ High School Senior Portraits | Tom

 

Getting to work with high school seniors and learning about their passions is amazing. Lately, I have been working with a lot of athletes, many of them like Tom play more than one sport. Tom has been a soccer player since he was allowed to start playing, and when he got to high school he started wrestling. I meet Tom a few years ago and have worked with him the past two fall seasons for his soccer action collages.

This time around I got to go out on a shoot with Tom to his high school’s bleachers, so many football games watched from those seats. Not to mention all of the games that he got to play on that field, with the fans in the stands cheering Tom and his team on. While Tom is a star on the soccer field he is also a champion wrestler, this year Tom took #1 in his district for wrestling.

Good luck next year Tom in the beginning of your college journey and PA career.

 

 

 

 

Love and Joy.

An Athlete’s Prom | Washington Township, NJ

An Athlete’s Prom in Washington Township, NJ

 

For me, I loved playing sports, hiking, and camping, the pictures I took at prom were kind of like my school pictures. In front of a backdrop that looked nice, but told no story as to who I was.  That’s when I got the idea prom pictures should be taken at a place that means something to you and your date.

PROM… it’s like a magical word when you’re in high school. It kind of is! The glitz and glamour, the dresses and hair do’s, the tux’s; OF COURSE it’s one of the highlights of Junior and Senior year! And why wouldn’t it be? In my area, prom is like a mini wedding, but that makes for a very memorable night.

If you are an athlete, why not combine the glamour of prom with your passion?! When Renae asked me to do her pictures for her junior prom, I incorporated soccer since her and her date have played pretty much their whole lives. A year later we headed out with a few of Renae’s friends and played off the athlete’s glamorous night.

 

Shannon and Erin play softball, while Renae is a soccer player; being able to show off their love of sports and love of fashion was so much fun.

 

Love and Joy.

Red Bank Battlefield Engagement Session | Mandi + Richard

Red Bank Battlefield Engagement Session | Mandi + Richard

 

It’s exciting when you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with; and it’s even more exciting when they know too! Mandi and Richard starting dating a year ago and this past winter Richard asked Mandi to be his forever love.

I was so excited when Mandi called about doing their engagement photos, I started asked a few questions to get to know Mandi and Richard as a couple. Mandi told me they are both in the service; the first place that jumped in my mind for the location of our shoot was Red Bank Battlefield in Red Bank, NJ. What better place to do a shoot than a location that has a lot of history! Red Bank Battlefield was apart of the Revolutionary War, with The Whitall House still standing and used for renactments in the spring. Mandi loved the idea of the location having a rich history.

The Delaware River runs along the battlefield with the Philadelphia skyline in the distance. I was really nervous to take this ring shot but it was so worth it, because Mandi loved the shot while I was taking it and loves it even more now that she has it as her cover photo picture on Facebook.

Love and joy and happy planning.

One Month Old Session in Marlton, NJ | Easton


One Month Old Session in Marlton, NJ | Easton

 

I was so excited when I got the call from Erin about doing her son’s 1 month old portraits. Erin had told me she wanted to do pictures, and just like most things before we knew it, a month had passed. I arrived at Erin’s shortly after noon and found the perfect place to take Easton’s adorable pictures. The lighting was beautiful, and there was enough room for my setup and for me to crawl around the backdrops. Once I got set up, we got Easton ready, and I got him posed; although he did not really care for the poses I picked. He was wide awake as he had a little nap before I got there. Easton would watch me as I picked up my camera and then would wiggle out of the wrap or pose. He even stuck his tongue out at me!

 

 

Joy and Love.

Somerdale, NJ Cat Cake Smash | Dahlia

Somerdale, NJ Cat Cake Smash | Dahlia

As a pet owner, my animals are my family; like many of us, I’m that crazy pet parent. I have done first birthday cake smashes and they were so much fun. Getting to celebrate special occasions, like birthdays and graduations, with my clients is so special, because I am capturing those moments that they will be able to hold onto forever. I started to realize that I don’t have any of those special memories saved of my own little fur babies. So… This year I decided to have cake smash sessions for each of my adorable puppies and silly little kitty.

I started the celebrating off with Dahlia’s 4th birthday! I made her a cupcake. Don’t worry it was the purr-fect kitty treat. I found this recipe and modified it some to fit what Dahlia likes. I ended up only using the tuna fish, egg, and a pinch of cheese. There are many more recipes and places that you can buy a cat cake if you want to have a kitty cake smash too!

Love and Joy!
