A wonderful day, a wonderful cause… kids4kids

I had the honor of photographing an incredible day of giving back.  What is most special about this organization is it’s a children’s charity given by kids and benefiting kids  (hence the name kids4kids).

This was a good old fashioned carnival that the children planned and helped run and the money raised goes to the palative care unit at CHOP and Camp Erin (a grief camp for kids who have lost a parent).  It was a win win for everyone because the children involved learned all about the meaning of giving back and how good it can feel to do something for someone else.  The day was a huge success on every level, the children worked so hard to make this day just right, and should feel very proud of their accomplishment.  

Here are links to kids4kids and there parent organization Ashley’s angels:   Go check them out to get inspired.  Here are some highlights of the day.  

I was given a Mother’s Day honor!

Mothers day I had the honor of photographing The Race For the Cure in Philadelphia for the Susan G Komen organization. I have participated in this race for years, but got even more out of it as a photographer. Instead of walking alongside everyone, my camera really let me in to these people’s lives and hearts. I met some very inspirational people, and it was a true honor to be able to photograph them empowered by the group, and hope for a cure.  I hope to contribute in this way every year from now on.  Here are a few images from the day, so you can get the feel of the event.  

Have to share this sad and inspirational story that has captured the worlds hearts.

Is it really that time again… Beach portraits???

Wow, hard to imagine a gorgeous sunny day at the Jersey shore at the moment.  Today is raining and 52 degrees in Philly, but I just booked my first Beach session this season, in Margate NJ for a weekend in June.  I guess it is upon us after all.  Just a reminder I am available for Beach sessions in Margate, Ventnor, and Longport New Jersey during the summer months.  I will only book a small number of these and they book up fast. If this is on your to do list, book your soon.  Ok, what would a post be without some pictures so to get you in the mood here are a few of my favorites from last summer.  In the spirit of full disclosure some of these are my own kids and the cute dog… he’s mine too!!!

This child positively sparkled from the inside out….

Ms. K was a pleasure to photograph, so cute and natural.  I see an exciting career in acting in your future!  Enjoy your sneak peak and your final images are not far behind.  Oh, but that last shot you look way to mature.
