Fall is normally my busiest time of the year for portraits but lately, I've been doing a lot of work during the summer and loving this season for family pictures.  It's light out later into the evening and everyone has such a carefree attitude in the summer months, anticipating the next vacation or just enjoying time off from work in the beautiful weather. 

This beautiful baby melted my heart when she reached out to me at the end of the session and let me hold her.  She even gave me kisses when she left!  She is the perfect age for portraits, interested in me enough to look in my direction, but not old enough to want to look at the back of my camera after every shot :)

I just loved the way some of these turned out, she was the perfect subject.  Thanks to her parents too for keeping her up past her bed time!

I was so happy to finally "meet" Bridget and Ed in New York for their engagement session a few weeks ago.  Bridget and I went to the University of Delaware together and share a mutual friend so while we had met before, now I finally got a real chance to get to know both her and Ed.  They are both wonderful people and while I might be most excited that they are honeymooning in Thailand (!), I am equally excited for their beach wedding coming up in just a few short months.  They have some unique and fun photo locations planned and I know it will be a great day shooting.  Can't wait to see you guys soon and thank you for an excuse to spend time in the city that I miss so much!

My 2015 wedding season kicked off with Amanda and Jack's absolutely gorgeous wedding at Greenville Country Club.  Each location was better than the last, from Hotel duPont to the chapel at Hagley Museum to Greenville Country Club.  The day was beyond beautiful and it was a pleasure photographing this couple from start to finish.  Flowers by Yukie did the flowers and they were some of the most amazing and artistic florals I had ever seen.  Samantha from Secretariat made the day go so smoothly and I couldn't be more excited for my upcoming weddings this year after such a great start.  Enjoy their photos from this very special day!

I am at a loss of what to write about such an amazing day with such wonderful people.  There aren't words to express the joy I felt on Kate and Pete's wedding day.  Kate and I spent our most formative years together as best friends through junior high, high school and beyond.  We have so, so many memories together and she has been there for me through countless highs and lows throughout my life.  I have always wanted to photograph her wedding and knew it would be beautifully planned and executed, and it absolutely was.  Having had my son just four week prior to Kate's wedding, I knew I couldn't handle shooting the day alone so I took the role of part-time second shooter and left the rest in the very capable hands of Daniel Moyer, who did a remarkable job capturing every moment of the day.  I'll let the images tell the rest of the story.  Kate and Pete, I look forward to making many more memories with you both and thank you so much for including me in your day in such a special way.

This was the third of Abigail's first year package.  It has been so fun watching her (and brother, Matt) grow.  It is amazing how much babies change in a year.  Abby was so tiny when I met her and now she is a walking, talking, personality-filled toddler.  I loved working with this beautiful family and can't wait to see them again this year!
