Smithville Mansion Children's Photographer: Blake is one!

Blake is turning one today, and to document this special time, we met at Smithville Mansion in Mount Holly to get some great shots of him and his awesome mommy and daddy. We had a great time exploring and finding fun spots to entertain a one-year-old. Blake is a totally happy, smiley guy- which makes my job easier! To make him the happiest little guy ever- we ended with a cake smash! Didn't his mommy do an awesome job coordinating his outfit and this adorable cake?! Happy Birthday, Blake! Keep smiling :)

Cooper River Two-Year-Old Session: Holden

Holden is turning two. Feels like just yesterday I was photographing his first birthday- turns out it was a year ago :) This year, he moves much faster, talks more, and is even more adorable with his cute little hairdo (if that's possible!). We met at Cooper River to have some fun, which included: playing with a trash truck, a soccer ball, a chalkboard, and let's not forget chasing me around like a dinosaur. In conclusion- a totally fun evening! Holden is a happy little guy and I think we totally captured that!

This is Holden last year- now look at him!

I'm not sure what was so funny- but this makes my heart smile!

This is what getting chased by a dinosaur looks like!

Such a cute & happy family!

Penns Landing: Fall Family Session

We were so happy to greet Meghan, Dave, and baby Sophie on Black Friday for a long weekend. The Z family is one of our closest friends, but they live too far away... in Massachusetts. Our relationship has been a long-distance one from the beginning, when I first met Dave and Meghan in Aruba (my husband's family vacationed with their family throughout their childhood). Dave and Meghan might look familiar from their maternity session shot in Aruba, or baby Sophie's newborn pics seen here or even Sophie's baptism. We went to Penn's Landing in Philadelphia, and Smithville Mansion the next morning. This is just a portion of the blast we had that weekend. Miss you already Z family!!!!

Kevin is six months!

I first met Kevin when he was just a newborn back in April. Life at six months is a little different now. Kevin is moving around, holding his bottle, and playing with his best bud- Cooper. Kevin's parents, Heather and Steve, might be the happiest parents I've ever met. We had a chance to sit and chat while we were waiting for Kevin to wake up from a nap and the way they talk about him is so adorable. It was even more adorable when Kevin woke up and I got to see Heather and Steve in full-on parent mode. They are such an adorable, smiley, little family. Here are some shots we got to celebrate Kevin turning six months old. ...and check out Kevin's adorable Halloween costume! Enjoy!

Holden is one!

You aren't ready for this cuteness. You may think you are, but you really aren't! On a sunny Sunday, I met up with the modelesque Kervick family to celebrate Holden's first birthday. Brittany (mom) is an avid runner, and found the Wenonah railroad station one day during a run. What a perfect place to shoot! Dad (Brett) had the pleasure of helping Holden find and put his dinosaur shoes back on his feet (about a million times). Did I mention there was a cupcake?? Yes, there is a cupcake! You can guess what happens! It was perfection! Get ready to "ooh' and "aah" at the pictures below. P.S. Is this family not the cutest?! I love them!
