I love these little kiddos.  Some of my favorite shoots are with families who have hired me on a repeat basis and I get so excited when the kids remember me and are happy to see me, as was the case with this family.  The whole family couldn't be sweeter and every time I think the kids couldn't get any cuter, they do.  Can't wait to see you all in 2012!

I love weddings at the Phoenixville Foundry.  It is such a unique and grand space and from what I've overheard there, guests are always impressed by it too.  Marisa and Mike decided to have their wedding just before Thanksgiving and it is always exciting shooting a wedding around that time of year.  You can feel everyone getting excited for the holidays and the wedding is another reason for celebration.  The weather was unseasonably mild that day and it lent to a beautiful portrait session in downtown Phoenixville.  Marisa's dad was sweet enough to contact the local movie theater and put the couple's name up on the marquee!  It was one of the best personal touches I've ever seen.  

Marisa and Mike, it was great working with you.  Your families were and are wonderful and sweet and it was just such a nice day for us!  Couples like you make me really love my job :)

With Thanksgiving only two days away, I thought it would be a great time to offer a holiday promotion to all of you.  I am so thankful for all of my wonderful clients throughout the year.  You truly make me love what I do and I can't express how much I appreciate your business and your support.  The ability to turn something I love into a career has never been something I've taken for granted.  I am thankful for each day, each job and each client.  

This year, I'll be offering a discount on portrait sessions, as I've had many inquiries about gifting sessions to family and friends for the holidays.  You'll have two options to choose from, as listed below.

From now until December 19, portrait sessions may be purchased for 20% off the normal rates.  That means that instead of the normal (all-inclusive) rate of $400, you'll get the session, online proofing gallery and high resolution disk for $320 (plus tax).  You can buy a session for yourself or a friend so just send me an email and I'll get your certificate shipped out in time for the holidays!  

Additionally, sessions can be purchased a la carte (without the high resolution disk) at the normal rate and print credits can be purchased for 50% off.  This means that a $200 print credit would only be $100.  Please email me with any questions and I look forward to meeting and photographing your friends and families!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season!

Alison and Jesse should have a long and happy marriage because the weather on their day was dismal!  We had great plans of shooting around the city and in Grand Central Station and unfortunately, the weather dismissed our plans very quickly.  While I love outdoor photos and try to get at least a few no matter what, I love how warm and welcoming a wedding feels on a rainy day.  The lights from inside seem even brighter and it just feels so good to go from a storm outside to a bright and happy party inside. 

The Lotos Club offered what felt like a regal backdrop for the day.  There were rich colors and ornamental details in every room that truly felt fit for a wedding.  Thanks to Alison and Jesse for going with the flow!  It was a beautiful day.

Thankfully, Becca and Dan decided to have their wedding on a Sunday.  The day before, we had an epic blizzard and tree--falling episode in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  Roads were nearly impossible to navigate.  Even on Sunday, my trip to Holly Hedge required three detours.  Needless to say, it was a relief to arrive for the beautiful wedding that took place.  It seemed to me that all of the guests made it too.  While the ceremony was moved inside, the barn provided such an intimate and wonderful setting that I doubt anyone even noticed the weather outside.  Becca and Dan had a wonderful attitude about the slight changes in plans and they truly had a blast at the party!  It was a wonderful, snowy, fall wedding.
