And here’s our amazing volunteers for the day!! Also known as my family!
L to R Evelyn (Enzo’s aunt), Isabella (Enzo’s cousin) and Christina (Enzo’s aunt)
Isabella and I!
Look who showed up the event!!! Vinny Grande and his daughter Larissa, Enzo’s dad and sister! They live in Florida, but were up for a couple days… 🙂
When I was asked to take portraits of precious Baby N, his mommy was very specific; she wanted that “newborn look ” in his images. Nolan however wasn’t a tiny newborn, he was 5 weeks old when we had the session! I knew if we gave him just enough coddling and extra love from his mommy, we’d get there. And I’m happy to say we surely did! Mom was amazing to work with too; she understood the process of getting get baby where he needed to be for us to be able to work him and I even offered her a job! ;0) .. she was stellar! Anyways, it was an absolute pleasure working with mommy and baby… enjoy!!
What an incredibly fun session this beautiful couple! C & J were amazing to work with! C is one of the most laid back soon to be mommy’s I’ve had the chance to work with and J is one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met. He kept C and I laughing the ENTIRE session. One thing that I think is apparent in these images is the love that they have for one another. They looked at each other with such admiration and happiness during their session and I can’t wait to meet baby! \
Sandi and Jordan’s wedding was truly a beautiful occasion. The bride and her beautiful bridal party got ready at her mother and father’s home, where I had the oppurunity to capture their getting ready photos. Time passed so quickly and before we knew it, they were on their way to St. Peters Church in Pen Argyl for the ceremony. I think the look on Jordan’s face as she walked down the aisle with her father says it all: incredible love. After their ceremony, we traveled to Kirkridge Retreat – The Farmhouse in Bangor Pa for portraits and their fabulous reception. There truly was not a dry eye in the house during their first dance. One of the most heartfelt “first dances” I’ve ever seen. I too, was tearing! After this beautiful moment, Tony and Eryn from Sounds of Music Entertainment: http://www.facebook.com/somevents opened up the dance floor and the party didn’t stop ALL night! Also, special thanks to Rachel Miranda for her assistance in shooting this special event!
I was so excited when I first spoke to Sandi about her engagement photos with her fiance’ Jordan. We chatted about her upcoming June wedding and the ‘feel’ she is going for with her wedding. I threw out some ideas for her engagement session such as some parks we could go to, some architectural locations..and then she told me that her and her fiance live on a farm. I nearly passed out. 🙂 All I could think of was how incredible it would be to capture a couple in their true element…being with the animals they love and capturing their happy family. Needless to say, our session this past weekend was a ton of fun and I truly marveled at their commitment to one another and their dedication to their farm. Additionally, I couldn’t stop laughing and smiling, with all the great names for their pets and they hysterical personalities. I have infused some of the fun into the photos below. Congrats to Sandi and Jordan and I’m truly looking forward to your June wedding!

This is Romeo.. One of Sandi’s favorite pets…he’s very handsome!
Here’s the rest of the crew! I think they were wondering why Romeo was getting so much attention.
And of course here’s Jacks.. another furry baby they adopted.
