DelGrande Family on Boathouse Row


I am a pretty fortunate person in the way that I tend to meet absolutely wonderful people during my adventures. I met Heather through our time working together selling the fabulous clothes at Athleta in Center City Philadelphia – and right from the start I just knew she would be a great friend! It was such a pleasure to photograph for you DelGrande family!!! Hope you enjoy your photos! Happy holidays!!

The McPeake’s By the Sea

Is there nothing greater than being with your family by the ocean? Maybe it’s my own wonderful memories of spending time with my family on the shores of the Atlantic, but taking family beach photos just brings back such a glowy time in life. Thank you McPeake family for another wonderful photo session – I just love watching your family grow year after year. I feel so lucky to be your photographer.

Lucy’s First Birthday!

What can be more fun than eating cake with your hands and playing on the playground for hours? Seriously, Maher / Hellwarth families, you know how to throw fantastic parties — your craftsmanship and attention to detail at ‘Lucy’s Lemonade Stand’ first birthday party were so great! These are much much over due on the blog, but thank you, and enjoy!

Fitness truly can be for everyone — and believe it or not, it can be fun! Carolyn Grashof — Founder of Fitbody Personal Training — and, ahem, my esteemed oldest sister — takes fitness to a new level. Forget your generic DVD work outs, and the uninspiring classes at the gym — Carolyn will get  you in shape with both her personal training, and group Boot Camp workouts. I realize this is a shamless promotional plug for my amazingly talented sister — Annie too (pictured above!), as well as my sister’s Rebecca and Brenda who are yoga instructors (Rebecca can be seen here flying around the studio — Brenda is not pictured here — YET — she lives in South Africa… shooting yoga photos with her in April!) — more shameless plugs for them later. Focusing on FitBody for now… Both Carolyn and Annie teach Boot Camp workouts that will leave you feeling like your body is changing, and that you had the time of your life working out with them! I just had to share some of the pictures I took for them. They do great work, and you should work out with them! Do it. Just do it.

Danielle & Dave

As we were planning her engagement photo session, I asked Danielle what she and her fiance Dave like to do together – she said “We love softball and being with our family.” And so, for their engagement shoot, we combined both! I love getting to know people as I take their pictures – Danielle and Dave have that special magic, their love for each other and for their family is contagious – it was an honor to take your engagement photos, and I am so excited to photograph your wedding in June 2013 — is it here yet?? Here are a few pictures from our session together, at the fields and playground in Burholme Park.
