Dreams CAN come true; At long last, the mother/daughter portrait she’s always dreamed of; family portrait photographer South Jersey, Philadelphia

Its  a real Zen moment for us when a client comes to us to fulfill their vision for a family portrait. So we were thrilled when Heather contacted us recently to create a black-and-white portrait of her and her daughter with a very specific look. She’d seen the look in a portrait of fashion model Kate Moss and her daughter many years ago, and she promised herself  that if she had a daughter, she would someday have a portrait just like it.  She asked us if we’d consider creating this kind of portrait with her and her beautiful (and beautifully named) daughter, Lyla Blue. Oh yes we would! The session went beautifully, Lyla was super-cooperative, and large framed version of the this portrait now hangs in her home. Of course, we were so thrilled to see Heather’s  reaction to the large portrait that we had to photograph that moment too! During her session we also got some more playful shots, as well as some gorgeous individual images of Lyla. Huge thank- you to you, Heather, for giving us this opportunity to create these stunning images, and for helping you fulfill your dream.

Family portrait session, perfect for holiday cards.

We loved the warm tones in this family session with Shandi, Rob and their three girls.  Along with the portraits we designed for them, Shandi wanted a classic, simple holiday card to send to family and friends.  I loved the casual images she chose, especially the ‘walking away’ shot, which she used on the back of the card.  Such a natural, un-posed look.

Now this is family.

Family doesn’t get much closer than this.  Four sisters, all raised in Haddon Township. Their parents, Al and Marge, still live in the town, and they’ve all raised their own kids here. Margie, Marie, Kathy and Ellen…you are part of a truly amazing family.  (and look how great the coral and blue works in these images – gorgeous!)
