LOVE Letters for your family

February 14, 2018

Remember when birthday, anniversary and Valentine’s Day wishes were handwritten love letters you kept in a shoebox to keep forever? I recently stumbled across a whole box of mine while putting our Christmas decorations away in storage. Early letters from my husband, handwritten cards and letters from my mom and dad, hand drawn pictures from […]

I am blessed to be the mother of two music loving kids who combined have played instruments for 12 years! TWELVE!!

A couple of weeks ago, I hosted the Portrait of a Dancer Sessions at Studio 239 in West Chester.  If you’ve never been there you are missing out…the studio just begs you to grab a cup of coffee and relax!  With the beautiful hardwood floors and the high ceilings, it was the perfect setting to show […]

The World Record & Giveaway

April 11, 2013

Show of hands, how many people remember the Brady Bunch episode where Cindy and Peter try to see-saw their way into the record books? I’ll admit I have always thought that holding a World Record for something would be really cool. I never have been able to grow my nails that long (have you seen […]


The Difference a Day (or 7) Makes | Philadelphia Family and Maternity Photographer

December 11, 2012

I absolutely love, as my mom used to say, “being in on the carry.”  There is something so exciting, so promising with each and every new little life that every time I meet a family on the verge of getting ready to grow, I can’t help myself from being giddy!  This family was no exception.  […]
