Baby Vivian, Moodybaby Session

It was such a pleasure and so much fun meeting baby Vivian. I photographed Sara and Justin’s wedding back in 2010, this was  a great excuse to see them again!


Vivian loves the swings, especially when dad ducks.
Yay!
Adorable Fam.
We can’t forget Tilly!
An ever moving one year old.
We did a fun experiment with Viv and some whip cream. I think it went over pretty well and in Vivian’s favor.:)
After that we totally needed a bath!
Stories before bed
And a little throw back to Justin and Sara’s wedding day below!!!!

It was so great to see you all and meet Vivian. Wonderful home and wonderful family you have. Much love.

Actor Head Shots with Yao Nunoo

A good friend of mine, former colleague from Drexel, and also a past bride Dede recently reached out to me for this project. Dede works in the film industry and is involved in post production work, among many other duties. She recently worked on the film Destiny of Lesser Animals in which Yao has been nominated for Best actor in the 2013 African Film Development Awards. Yao hadn’t had  professional head shots in years so Dede naturally thought of me. Awe thanks!  Its something I haven’t had much experience in honestly, but I know how to take a decent portrait so I thought why not it would be fun. It was so much fun! I didn’t realize how much I needed this slight change of direction. I love photographing my couples, families, babies etc… but it was so refreshing to photograph in a different way. I like to mix it up, I need to mix it up every now and then. Yao was so great, natural and charismatic. He performed a short monologue for us and I got so caught up in it I felt like he was having a direct conversation with me and I had no idea how to respond!! haha!! My assistant Alexa helped out with the lights and Dede was a great art director. Since she knows Yao she helped such a great deal by just talking to him, getting reactions she knew he could provide and was the bridge to make us all feel at home.

This is only a small selection of what we captured the other day. Enjoy!
