Bringing you guys the sweetest little family session with four of my favorite people.

Meet the Spragues.

This is Claire + her mama Crystal. I photographed these guys the day they were born, and I will be forever tied to both them and their parents.

This little love is Isla. And that’s Gary. He’s the best guy and the best dad.

Is there anything better than when those arms wrap around you?!

new-jersey-family-photographer-moorestown-13

These two gave me a run for my money, but MAN were they cute doing it!

It’s the week of other photographers asking me to capture their families and MAN, can we say anxiety?! Sara is a great family photographer in our area and when she asked me to photograph HER family, I was thrilled (plus a little nervous). But these guys couldn’t have been sweeter.

I got to spend the day capturing all the love they have for each other!

Aren’t they adorable?! Sara is a style goddess.

Little Leo is just starting to balance himself, and when he tipped over Joey couldn’t stop laughing.

Nothing says ‘boy mom’ like a car riding up and down your face! Sara takes in all in stride.

Love this shot of Sara and her boys.

GUYS. Wanna know what’s more nerve wracking than a photo session? And more nerve wracking than a photo session with one of your good friends?

ANSWER: A photo session with one of your good friends who also happens to be a BOMB wedding photographer.  Seeeeeeeee what I mean.

 

But even though I had ALL.THE.NERVES. these guys couldn’t have made my job easier OR more enjoyable. Cause the only thing better than photographing cute families is photographing your friends’ cute families.

This little lady is our dear sweet Addie. She’s curious, easy to smile, but also gives you that beautiful serious face..

philadelphia-family-photographer-2

..case in point on the right.

That dog that looks like he’s totally over it? That’s Colby Jack. Yes, Alison and Kealan DID name their dog after cheese. Yes, they are my people.

philadelphia-family-photographer-3

I never write between every photograph, but I’ve basically just done that so let’s see if I can keep it going.

philadelphia-family-photographer-4

Addie decided she needed a break from our shenanigans so I started photographing the Mrs. + Mr.

philadelphia-family-photographer-5

And then she just was all casual like “yeah, you can take photos of me again, but NOT with them. I’m my own person”

philadelphia-family-photographer-6

Try to tell me Addie doesn’t know who is boss.

philadelphia-family-photographer-7 philadelphia-family-photographer-9 philadelphia-family-photographer-8

I gave up on talking between every photo, but I’m back! Cutest family!

philadelphia-family-photographer-12 philadelphia-family-photographer-11

Look up JOY in the dictionary. You will see this photo.

When babies don’t cooperate, sometimes we give them sticks. Don’t judge.

If you’ve never been to Pound Ridge, NY then just stop what you’re doing and go there RIGHT.NOW. It is incredibly adorable, quaint, and (bonus!) it’s full of lovely people like Kassie + Doug!

Meet Kassie – she’s amazing.

Why do I love this shot so much? Well, growing up I always remember my mom brushing my hair (usually followed by lots of me yelling that it hurt and her spraying stuff so I wouldn’t cry).. Now I brush my own daughter’s hair and those same fights happen and I now know the pain of being on the other side of that brush. In this photograph we have little Eleanor, her mama trying to wrangle her hair, and then her mama’s mama trying to help her. I can just reach out and feel and the generations of hair brushing and hair pulling and tears and wiggling and, and..

Kassie + Doug’s wedding was a super laid back, family style dinner full of all their favorite people. Their wedding was exactly like the two of them.

My favorite part of every wedding, the speeches. Doug’s dad had the sweetest speech!

I met Sarah when I shot her friend Maggie’s wedding a few years ago. She had the BEST energy, and so I was so happy when she contacted me to photograph her own wedding. I arrived to her a house on a gorgeous October day and everything couldn’t have gone better.

Here’s Sarah – isn’t she the cutest?!

This might be my favorite first look moment ever. The anticipation of Sarah’s dad, the movement of her dress paired with the excitement on her face, and little Phoebe in the corner taking it all in..
