Engagement : Deane & Rachel

This is the week of a childhood friend's wedding.  Deane grew up down the street from me.  After years of watching him grow into a talented and basically the most awesome person ever, we reconnected after both moving to Philadelphia.  Deane met Rachel a few years ago and when we were first introduced, she greeted me with a big hug, beaming smile, and charming wit.  I knew Deane found his other (better) half ;)

They asked me to do their engagement photos in the spring back in our hometown.  I am happy to share some more photographs to celebrate this week! I can't wait to see you two tie the knot!

Maternity : The Rodriguez Family

I was fortunate enough to grow up in the scenic outskirts of Philadelphia.  When I began kindergarten, I met someone who would become my longest and best friend.  From dance recitals to soccer tournaments, family parties to traveling around the world, we were pretty much inseparable. So needless to say, my first post is as personal as it gets.  My beautiful best friend, Laura, just recently gave birth to her first son. These are photos I took of Laura and her lovely family before they welcomed their newest bundle of joy.
