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.

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.

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.

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!

Senior Portraits at Washington Township Lake Park | Lauren

Senior Portraits at Washington Township Lake Park | Lauren

As promised, Lauren’s second part of her senior session is here and I am so excited to share! We shot on a beautiful fall day at Washington Township Lake Park, the lake and colorful fall leaves made an amazing colorful backdrop for her faded green sweater.

There was no doubt in my mind that we were gonna make it over to the soccer fields at Washington Township Park.  After all Lauren will be playing college soccer at Bloomsburg University.

We ended the night with a few fun shots of Lauren in her prom dress on the soccer field.

 

Good luck with the rest of your senior year, Lauren!

 

Joy and Love

Highland High Senior Soccer Collages | Blackwood, NJ

Highland High Senior Soccer Collages | Blackwood, NJ

Smoke Powder is an athlete's collage to show their athletic season. With 15-20 images, Smoke Powder collage is worth over a 1,000 words. The wow factor of this action collage will leave anyone who sees it, wanting onw too!

I love all the different aspects of photography, portraits are where I focus, but sports might be the most fun and challenging for me. I started photographing soccer when my sister was in middle school, at that time I had a long way to go before I could even say that I was a sports photographer. While I didn’t think that I would still be shooting sports 6 years later, I am so glad I kept with it. I now love shooting sports and creating special one of a kind action collages for athletes.

high-school-senior-sports-collage-5high-school-senior-sports-collage-1Tonya Moken creates one of a kind action collages for players. Athletes love their action collage because it is a custom creation just for them to treasure for years to come.

This year, I was hired to create action collages for all 23 seniors on the Highland soccer teams. I was nervous and excited to accept the challenge of shooting 10 plus players at each game. If you have tried to photograph a soccer game before or even just watched a high school game, you know the players are on and off the field and move fast. While it took me a game or two to know all the athletes names and numbers, the excitement and quick on my feet thinking along with the jumping up for a header, out running the defense, and of course the game winning goals, made these collages look amazing!high-school-senior-sports-collage-2 high-school-senior-sports-collage-6high-school-senior-sports-collage high-school-senior-sports-collage-6high-school-senior-sports-collage-3high-school-senior-sports-collage-7

I have worked with Lauren a few times now, she is on her high school’s varsity soccer team and I have done action shots of her for two years. This year I was so excited when her mom told me they were ready to get the action collage this year and they wanted senior portraits!

Portrait collage for any occassion.

We met and talked about what Lauren wanted for her pictures; she wanted a colorful fall setting, but liked the main street in Haddonfield. I was almost jumping up and down when she said she wanted to shoot in Haddonfield. I love driving up and down Kings Highway looking at all the cute little shops.

Portrait collage for any occassion.

Lauren and I meet at the Starbucks and headed down to the “town center square.” The gazebo shooting towards Kings Highway made for the perfect small town vibe we were going for.

Portrait collage for any occassion.

Lauren squealed with joy and excitement when I showed her a few shots.

Portrait collage for any occassion.

Stay tuned for the second part of Lauren’s senior portraits.

Joy and Love.

These two are so much fun to work with, I’ve posted about them before. Our high schools have junior and senior proms because the classes are pretty big. Renae found a beautiful lake with a water fountain in the middle of it. As beautiful as the lake was, Tom and Renae made the lake look just like a lake, because they looked stunning all dressed up.
