Wow, am I behind! Here’s a few peeks at what is to come…
What a fun shoot! I had worked with the Reilly family before, so when they asked me to join them again at Scott Arboretum at Swarthmore College, I was thrilled! This time, it would be with some of their in-laws, too. I love big shoots like this. They are challenging, at times a bit crazy, and usually full of surprises…but the outcomes are always fantastic!
These children are all absolutely beautiful and sweet. Although it might take some coaxing to get some of them to look at the camera long enough for me to take a picture, they are such a joy to work with. The oldest girl was a pro. Take a look at this next pose–all her!
Frannie was the one who organized the shoot. She is absolutely beautiful and I can tell from the few times I’ve met her that she is an amazing mother. So full of patience and so warm, this next picture encompasses what she is all about. I just love it!
Love this next one of the in laws. What a lovely family! The flowering tree worked great with their outfits. It just screams summertime!
There is this awesome Adirondack chair on the campus that was designed by a former student. What a cool spot for a family portrait! I love that we were able to take the typical family portrait and transform it into something different just by using this chair!
Last Sunday morning I got to spend some time with the Adamcyzk family. What a great bunch! Their twin boys had just turned 2 years old, and they wanted a session to commemorate the event. These two adorable boys do not stop moving! By the time the session was over, I had practically broken a sweat chasing them all over the yard and house. But it was all good; I had an awesome time.
Absolutely stunning mother…
How cool are these Radio Flyer tricycles? Awesome idea to bring them out from the garage and take some pictures of the boys playing around.
Those blue eyes just do me in.
Love the red sweater with the red bike! And those sweet little red lips! What a cutie.
One of my favorite photos ever. Just love how this one turned out.
Thank you, Adamcyzk family, for letting me spend the morning with you! You have a beautiful family and a lovely home. Great time!
Two weekends ago I had the opportunity to take the 6-month photos of the Boccella family’s son. It all started last fall when I did a 37-person photo shoot with their extended family. They loved the mini shoot I did with them and wanted to get together this year for a bigger session. Of course I was thrilled!
This kid has so much personality for just 6 months old! Check out that face.
And how about this one? Too funny!
Here’s mom. Isn’t she absolutely beautiful?
I think these may be the world’s cutest baby shoes!
And here’s the photo that started it all. I am already looking forward to 9 months in the spring!
Word of mouth is a powerful thing. The Whitehead family approached me after seeing a shoot I did a few weeks ago with the Reilly family. Kelly told me she was looking for the perfect Christmas card family photo this year, so that was the goal of this shoot. Of course, we threw in a mix of portraits, too. I had so much fun chasing their two beautiful girls around the house, exploring the different lighting in different areas of the house, and above all, getting to know a really lovely group of people. She asked me back for the spring, and I am already looking forward to a warmer weather shoot with this awesome bunch!
Oh. my. goodness. (I can’t stop saying that) these are flipping AWESOME. I am speechless. I am moved to just about tears, Alice. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Ahhhhh, I cannot wait to share these with our friends and family. You are fabulous, just amazing.
I’ve been searching for a photographer (I didn’t just want to use some chain photography place) to do pics of Liam for 2 years and have never been happier with what you did yesterday (so that means you are to be stuck with us as clients, ha ha).
It even goes to show how fantastic of a photographer you are that you turned them around so quickly (even though you said this was not to be expected). The less time spent on them = less editing needed because you are awesome.
I could totally go on and on. I cannot wait to share your name with all the friends and family we have, and I cannot wait for you to do the pics of our entire family soon.
Thank you, Courtney, for this wonderful feedback. I was the one who was moved to tears by your kind words. You had faith in me since I first started to share my pictures with friends and family on Facebook. Your letter is so encouraging. I am glad that I could make you happy with these pictures. That’s what it’s all about.
