Showers of Love

Celebrating the love two people share is just simply the best! Shooting Kathleen’s bridal shower was so much fun – you could just feel the love in the air! The day was pink, and rosey and filled with the best wishes from family and friends. Here are a few photographs from Kathleen’s bridal shower at The Philadelphia Room in Northeast Philadelphia.

Rebecca and Jon in NYC

This past weekend, I went along with husband and wife couple Rebecca and Jon to document a ‘farewell for now.’ Jon was accepted to medical school in Grenada (congrats!), and I went along to New York City (where his plane was leaving from) with Rebecca to see him off, and to capture with my lens, a few of their last moments together in the US for the next several months. A mix of sadness and hope for the future was in the air, but more than that, was love. It was a special honor to document such a tender time, and I hope these pictures can share a little bit of that love.

Conrad

Families with young children have a certain glow about them. Besides their amazing ability to turn fatigue into humor, they radiate a special kind of happiness that I find to be very contagious. Katie and Rory Jones welcomed their first child Conrad into the world in August 2011, and this holiday season, I was super lucky to take Conrad’s first set of pictures. He is such a cutie, and what a trooper! We worked with him through various costume changes and poses for almost three hours (we gave him bottle time and nap breaks too of course!). Great job Katie with your creative inspiration, and many thanks to my wife Sarah for being the great comedian who made Conrad laugh so much.

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:
