off to better myself!!!

Where you ask? I am heading to sunny Florida for a 5 day lighting workshop and I can’t wait!! One of the things I enjoy most is being in the company of my fellow photographers, the creative energy is inspiring and we all learn so much from each other. This should be pretty intense 5:30 am photo shoots followed by classes from 8:30 – 5:30 and then wrapped up with sunset photo shoots and then time in the lab to work on photoshop skills. I can’t wait to try out everything I learn on all of my new spring clients. The office will be closed this week, but I will have access to e-mail (just not a lot of time). As, you know I can not make a blog post without images so I will leave you with 2 that remind me it’s spring. The first is of some new buds blooming on a tree in my backyard (the changing seasons always amazes me). The 2nd image I may get in trouble for, it’s my son shaving for the first time with his Daddy and puppy looking on in the mirror (shhhhh don’t tell him I posted it, he never looks at my blog.

A personal post, my other babies! Philadelphia family photographer

For all you dog lovers out there, I thought I would share my 4 legged babies with you. The bigger one is Reggae and he is 3 yrs. old, the smaller one is Abu or boozer as we call her and she is almost 16 yrs. old.

You would think 5 kids would be chaos, right? Philadelphia family photographer

I was truly amazed to see the dynamics of this family. I assumed that 5 kids would be complete chaos, not the case here. These children… now you might want to sit down for this… they listen. I know amazing huh? They are kind to each other, they are respectful of their parents, they are not selfish, they are loving, warm and just plain terrific! Now, I’m rethinking everything I thought I knew about parenting. I’m kind of thinking that the fact that there are so many options of someone to hang with, the little insults that occur between siblings don’t have quite the same impact they do as when you upset your one and only sibling. So, since the love is spread each child can deal with life’s little ups and downs in a less emotionally charged manner. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it! Oh, I almost forgot this is supposed to be a sneak peak. Please forgive the extra amount of images but with 5 kids it’s impossible not to post a lot.

another son joins the “C” family…main line newborn photographer

Oh how sweet little “C” was, a perfect little miracle. I tried to warn his parents of the craziness that is ahead of them with 2 little boys, and believe me I know all about it. Frogs brought in the house, snakes as best friends, shorts in the winter, and dirty as the new clean is what is ahead for this family. For now all is calm, wonderful, and new in this household. See for yourself how peaceful little “C” is…

Susan G. Komen Philadelphia grantee luncheon – covered by Moments Caught Photography

The Philadelphia Affiliate Of Susan G. Komen Awards $2.6 Million In Grants To Local Organizations.
49 grantees were honored for their efforts to end breast cancer at recognition luncheon at the Union League. It was a wonderful afternoon, and you could just feel the positive energy in the room. I was thrilled to once again cover a Komen event, I find this to be one of the more rewarding perks of being a local photographer.

Spring is in the office….

Although the weather might not know it yet, the clients do. It seems like overnight people got the bug, and with that comes the frantic rush to secure their spring photo session. I for one can’t wait to get outside with my clients, see the flowers and feel the sunshine again. March is totally booked, April is just about booked and believe it or not May has 4 spots left. While all of this is wonderful it also means that I became behind again in my blogging, and I am really going to make an effort to get back in the habit. There are several sessions that never made it to the blog at all so here are a few fun ones that suffered from my own spring fever.
