The Elkins Family

A while back, I reconnected with a friend from high school on Facebook, and what was unique about our connection was how similar our lives became in the ten+ years since attending Methacton. As someone who came out after high school, it’s always super exciting to see who else also came out since then. When I learned that Sarah was also gay, and married, like me!, I thought – wow, how awesome! I didn’t feel so alone in the world! And then, Sarah announced that she and her wife Alexis were expecting a child. Again – Wow! Sarah and Lexi became trailblazers in my eyes. My wife Sarah and I want to start a family, but feel very overwhelmed with the process. Sarah and Lexi have given us some inspiration indeed.

We followed their journey as they shared it with us online, from standing before a judge to change last names and to win adoption rights, and then their baby Jacob coming into the world…just an amazing and beautiful story. Here are two women doing exactly what we hope to do. When Sarah contacted me about taking pictures of her family, I was beyond excited! It was such an honor to take pictures for her family. And I hope these few pictures give you a glimpse of the beautiful family they have. Lots of love to you Sarah, Lexi and Jacob!

The Ruppert Family

This past weekend I had the pleasure of taking pictures for the Ruppert family of Kathleen, Brian and their sons Jake and James. We wandered around two sections of Pennypack Park, with autumn leaves crunching under foot, and Jake’s imagination narrating our day together.

For sure we thought we would see some animals in the woods! We did see a few dogs and birds.  And Jake and Brian had a great time skipping stones in the creek. Looking forward to our beach session together this summer Ruppert family!!

Joyce & Andy: Engaged in Philly

When Joyce contacted me telling me that Andy ‘popped the question’ (yay Andy!) and she wanted to set up an engagement session with me this Fall – I was elated!  We had such a wonderful balmy November day for our session in Philadelphia. We wandered around the Waterworks and Art Museum area, capturing little glimpses of their love for each other through photographs. Here are a few pictures from our recent session – and congrats you two!! Wishing you the best the world has to offer!
