Behind the Scenes Look into Vintage Philadelphia, PA | VinSpire

 

I met Destinee of Vinspire during a February Tuesday’s Together meetup, we got to talking and thought we wanted to work together. Destinee teamed up with me to create a fun vintage inspired senior shoot. We took Destinee’s knowledge of vintage and matched up great makeup and hair styles with the girls wardrobe. Lauren and Maddy joined us as models and looked amazing!

Everyone came over and Destinee got to work, while I started taking on behind the scene pictures.

Washington Lake Park Family Portraits | Ortiz

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.

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.

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.

3 months

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.

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.

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.

A Hunter’s Portrait Session in New Castle, PA

A Hunter’s Portrait Session in New Castle, PA

 

Wow, I still am in shock that I did this session. I had a blast shooting with Andrew, but my heart was pounding and possibly in my throat. I found a new collage last year that I wanted to try out, but I needed a hunter to ‘model’ for me or as Andrew kept saying, ‘posing.’ We did our shoot on Christmas Eve morning, while Matt and I were out in the Pittsburgh area visiting his family and my soon to be family and some amazing new friends.

I originally thought Andrew only did rifle hunting, with this I knew that the gun would be unloaded. A couple of days before Andrew sent me a text asking what he should bring; I was confused, until Matt told me that Andrew also did archery. I was excited about being able to do both archery and rifle, but I was also becoming really nervous. (My only experience with archery was when I was at girl scout camp and my sister was the only one who could hit the target.) Matt and I arrived at Andrew’s on a misty, cloud filled morning, Andrew grabbed his bow and arrow and we headed out to the woods. We found the perfect spot! Andrew lifted the bow up and pulled the string and arrow back and I grabbed a few shots.

Of course, I wanted a shot of him facing me because it would be an amazing shot!

Above is the scariest shot that I have taken so far in my life.

But look how amazing this compilation looks!

High School Junior Portraits in the Snow | Maddy

High School Junior Portraits in the Snow | Maddy

 

Maddy and I met last year through Renae, and worked together this past fall on her soccer collage with her brother. I was so excited to get to work with Maddy again and this time not from the sidelines of a soccer field. During last week’s snow storm, Maddy and I headed out into the snow squalls for some fun snowy junior year portraits. We choose a local park in Gloucester Township, that has a beautiful lake and was right down the street from both of us! Tuesday’s wintery mix laid the perfect white snow on the ground, but the rain made it icy and a little slippery. As we slid our way out to the lake, we started laughing that there were geese walking around on the ice doing better than we were.

Maddy nailed her winter, snow outfit!
