Sweet Penny girl turns ONE

This session was for my sweet Penny  girl who is turning ONE  July 25th. Penny is a Maltipoo mixed  puppy. The Mintz family adopted Penny when she was only 3 months old after being abandoned on the streets of Philadelphia at 1 month old. We had been looking for a companion for our other adorable puppy Riley. And when we saw Penny we knew she would complete our family of pups. She was adopted from the Delaware County SPCA, MEDIA PA.

Happy birthday sweet Penny girl! We cannot believe you are already turning one. From the day we first set eyes on you, to watching you thrive this past year have been some of the best moments of our lives.Happy birthday to the smirky girl that loves to give kisses and snuggle in our arms. Happy Birthday Little Miss P!!!

My love for dogs began as a child and now I currently photographed and volunteer at the Chester County SPCA . I am very grateful I have the opportunity to not only volunteer my time to the CCSPCA but to be able to photograph the dogs to give others the chance to see the dogs the way us volunteers do.

Elegant Philadelphia Nupitals

Eleni and Shane’s stunning wedding is one of my favorites…their joy was infectious, a perfect  wedding for a perfect couple.  Our day began with taking portraits at Philadelphia’s City Hall and then we began a journey into the city which included a stop at Old City. Elfreth’s Alley is a perfect location for historic bridal portraits. The cobble stone road and authentic houses make for a beautiful background. Elfreth’s Alley is America’s oldest residential neighborhood.The night continued at the Ocean City Seafood Restaurant with a delicious feast. The Ocean City Seafood Restaurant transformed there restaurant into a gorgeous candle lit ceremony that was dripping with jewels and candles. The ambience was very romantic. There reception was filled with laughter and plenty of dancing. It was such a pleasure to be part of such an incredibly special & beautiful wedding… 2014-06-19_0001 2014-06-19_0002 2014-06-19_0004 2014-06-19_0005 2014-06-19_0006 2014-06-19_0007 2014-06-19_0008 2014-06-19_0009 2014-06-19_0010 2014-06-19_0011 2014-06-19_0012 2014-06-19_0013 2014-06-19_0014 2014-06-19_0015 2014-06-19_0016 2014-06-19_0017 2014-06-19_0018 2014-06-19_0019 2014-06-19_0020 2014-06-19_0021 2014-06-19_0022 2014-06-19_0023

the sweetest style is being in love

The sweetest style is being in love. And this wedding had so much love. Monica and Eric had a wedding filled with color, candy apple favors and even a sweet kitty. It was a pleasure to photograph their special day and witness the love  Monica and Eric share for each other. There was lots of planning that went into all of the details and their style really showed through these details. I hope you enjoy this wedding and may your day be full of sweetness.

Happy birthday to twins Harlow and Niko! Two is definitely better than one, I had so much fun with twins Harlow and Niko. They were full of energy and have the best style ( thanks to their awesome mama). I could really see them on a cover of a magazine. Aren’t they so cute! They were perfect models and great at posing. I loved Niko’s hat and Harlows head scarf ( so chic ).

Harlow and Niko just celebrated there second birthday and we were able to use decorations from their birthday party for there photography session. I just love all of the hanging two’s they make for a perfect backdrop. I am really glad I was able to spend time photographing them.
