Jaclyn and Joe had been planning on a beach engagement session and then the weather stepped into our plans. They were flexible and we decided to stay local for their engagement session. When they asked for suggestions on the perfect location, of course I mentioned Barclay Farmstead in Cherry Hill, NJ. It's a hidden gem just minutes away from the bustling highway yet so private. I love that there is so much variety in one location- plus it's dog friendly! Jaclyn and Joe brought their amazing dog- Cooper! They were all so much fun and easy to photograph (yes, you Cooper)! Don't worry, there's more of that adorable guy as soon as their wedding hits the blog. I absolutely love when dogs make an appearance at an engagement session AND even more so when they are involved on the wedding day!
One Sunday morning, I met up with this adorable family of four, to capture their first family photograph. (Holy alliteration.) We headed to Barclay Farmstead, and what an awesome little spot it was! Rustic, rustic, and more rustic. They are such an adorable family with such fun and well-behaved kids, and just all-round awesome parents.
