Snowy Senior Portraits in Gloucester Township, NJ | Alexis

 

Snowy days are far and few between in South Jersey these days, it seems like we had the most snow before the new year. That didn’t stop Alexis and I from keeping track of the weather and following the snow storms that the weatherman and women were predicting. In mid January, it was snowing all morning and were able to head out to a local park in Gloucester Township. The afternoon was chilly and a fresh blanket of ice crystals covered the frozen ground. The snowfall was almost non existent by the time we made it to the lake, but a few snowflakes fell from the trees.

As we headed back to the parking lot, a couple of ducks decided that where I was parked was not okay with them. They followed us through the parking lot, to where I was parked and then headed towards me as was putting my camera into my car. The video below is me trying to get the ducks to keep walking so Alexis would be able to leave (no ducks were hurt in the making of this video).

It’s been three years since we started blogging, many things have changed. We learned how to walk, figured out what our personality is, and learned what our voice is.

We started out with some teaching videos, transitioned into stories about our sessions, and now we also share some personal blogs. As we are still learning our steps, voice and where we want to go, we are looking back on just a few of your favorite posts over the last three years.

TLM’s 100th Blog Post!

 

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!

Friends in Scranton PA

What happens when you have a group of besties?! An amazing session full of laughter, smiles, whispered jokes, and did I mention the laughter?

Friends in Scranton PA

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.

Friends in Scranton PA

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.

Senior Portraits

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.

Senior Portraits

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.

A Year in Review | TLM Productions | Somerdale, NJ

 

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?

 

Kids Pictures

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.

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.

When all was said and done, Lauren and Maddie looked great and we headed into Philadelphia to fit our vintage theme.

So this post is a few years in the making, I know, it sounds funny. I have always loved the magical world TV creates and the underwater world of mermaids. I had the pleasure of working with my sister to create that magical world. We wanted to do a shoot at our “local” beach a few years ago, like all summer. I had a full time job and did shoots on the weekends, so it made it hard for us to find time. We had scouted rocky beach locations while we were visiting family at the shore, but could not find a place that we liked. Summer was ending and it seemed like we were not going to be able to do our dreamy mermaid shoot.

Hawaiian Mermaid

Our story didn’t end there though, to celebrate my parents 25th anniversary we did a family vacation to Hawaii. My parents had gone there on their honeymoon, and wanted to take my sisters and I for our “last” five person family vacation. We had an amazing time, our family vacations are always fun. Of course the whole trip Renae and I talked about doing our mermaid session, and what better place to do one than in Hawaii! On our last day, just hours before we needed to pack up and be at the airport, Renae and I were able to capture a little mermaid magic.

Hawaiian Mermaid

It may have been a summer long dream to do this session, but it was completely worth it. While it was our summer long dream, it just took me a little extra time to create these beautiful mermaid portraits. Maybe we will see Renae swimming along the New Jersey shores this summer.

Happy shooting.

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 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.
