My only hope when I have a family someday, is that I can love and support my children as much as these two parents do. Capturing family photos for this group over the past two years has been an absolute pleasure! In just six few weeks I will be moving South, and so during this session I had to say goodbye to the Benhams. I wish them both many years of happiness and joy!
I've been photographing this very special family since their oldest was a newborn. Energized, excited, and happy is how I would describe their oldest. Even though their 20 month old son was less than all of those things to be hanging with me taking pictures, we all managed to have a really nice day at Longwood Gardens.
This couple was special. The bride, one of the most beautiful and sweet, and groom, equally a pleasure to work for. Despite the cold temperatures, and the snow falling from the sky, this wedding was warm -- full of laughter and champagne bubbles. I especially enjoyed having the opportunity to document their very fun and adorable children on this very momentous day for mom and dad. Wishing you years of happiness and joy!
Longwood Gardens is such a gem! I'd say it's almost as beautiful of this Towson, MD family I photographed there on this beautiful (and chilly!) fall day! Due to the cold temperatures, we shot most of our session inside the conservatory, but we made it work to our advantage.
The best part of working as a photographer - getting to meet so many wonderful people!
Over the weekend, I spent my Saturday morning photographing this beautiful family in their Allentown, PA home. Just two months ago they welcomed their first baby girl, promoting their baby boy to "big brother" status! Even Zada, their pup, was able to sit in for a few pictures!
Since this little guy is lucky enough to celebrate his first birthday on our upcoming 2016 Presidential Election, we thought we'd help him run! If you can't make up your mind on who to cast your vote for, Gideon Reese is your man!
Lakia and Lamar are parents to three beautiful children. I had the pleasure of meeting the entire family tonight in Old City while they celebrated their engagement. We had to reschedule the shoot due to rain & wind, but I am so glad we did because the weather today could not have been more perfect. When you look at these pictures you would never guess how many distractions there could have been for these two, but somehow they managed to keep their attention solely on one another. To say I am looking forward to their 2017 wedding is an understatement, they are such a lovely couple!
The all new Petals & Pine website and blog are live! I can hardly believe the day has arrived! The hours and hours of time Patrick and I have spent perfecting our new brand and website has finally come to fruition!

For me, this is my passion, heart, and soul. I am so very excited at the months to come, and I look forward to the possibility of working with each and every one of you as your life journey unfolds. So many amazing things are coming to the website and the blog!
