Avery

A little more than a year ago, my friend Janelle asked me if I could take her daughter Avery’s Christmas pictures. I thought – sure! That sounds like fun! Before then, I was mostly taking pictures for my own enjoyment and whimsy, during travels, and of my own family. I can’t thank Janelle and her husband Sean enough for that first opportunity that helped launch me into starting my own business. Here are a few pictures from this year’s photosession with Avery – once she warmed up to the camera, we were smooth sailing – she’s so cute!

‘C’ is for Christmas – and Cousins!

An unseasonably warm November day provided a sunny setting for pictures in Pennypack park with all of the ‘Donohue Grandkids’ – cousins Joseph, Ryan, Jake, James, Miranda and Michael. The kids had a blast gathering and tossing up leaves, making piles of “monkey brains” and hearing a Christmas story read by Aunt Bridget. Thanks so much to the organizing moms who brought this photosession together – thanks Bridget, Kathleen and Moira! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

The ‘K’ Family

I had such a great time shooting holiday photographs for the K family – Karl, Kristin, Kadence and Kourtney – such a joy to photograph for them in their home all decked out for Christmas! Here are just a few pictures from our photo session together:

Walk around the block: Old City

We are travelers, my wife and I.

Every chance we get, we like to see new places and expand our horizons. Sometimes, that means walking around your own city and exploring the details in new ways. This past year, we didn’t have the resources to travel much at all, so we decided to start a new inititiave – to be tourists in our own hometown. Fortunately for us, we live in Philadelphia and there is so much to discover, uncover and reflect upon. Like man-hole covers, and street signs and historical buildings. Each experience is a form of traveling, and as one of my favorite books says it helps us to “cross over.” Anyway, here are a few photos from a recent walk-around the block.
