These new parents had such excitement throughout the entire shoot. I could see how truly happy they were to be parents and the love they have for their baby girl, Cameron, filled the room. Lifestyle, in-home newborn sessions are far more fun for me than your typical posed newborn sessions. They feel far more personal and intimate . There is something special about being welcomed into a house, a safe and personal space, to photograph new parents and their new baby. The photographs I am able to capture are authentic, intimate and personal to each family.
Kristel and Adam came to the studio with so much excitement to take these photos. You can tell that they’re so happy to finally be able to become parents. They will be welcoming a little baby girl and couldn't think of a better time to announce it then on Valentine's Day. So Kristel brought these cute balloons, baby shoes and other girly props. We know Valentine's Day already came and went, but we had to keep the secret! Here are just a few favorites from their session in our studio. Cannot wait to capture more milestones for this beautiful couple.

This Spring we had the awesome opportunity to design wine labels for a new collection of wines that Folino Estate Winery in Kutztown was releasing. We were tasked with designing something that looked elegant, but still has that rustic look and winemaker's touch. The finished label has the texture of parchment, embossed details and finished with a gold foil stamp. To accompany the label, and emphasize the exclusivity of these wines, the bottled is adorned with a die-cut tag with a wax seal and the bottle number written by the winemaker himself.
After all the bottles were labeled, it was time to collaborate with owner and styling extraordinaire Andrea Folino to create a photo shoot to promote the new collection. We wanted to evoke a dark and organic feel with these images. Check out the finished product below. This project was so much fun... from concept to creation.
Be sure to stop by Folino Estate to taste these amazing wines for yourself! www.folinoestate.com
"The Black Label Collection features handcrafted wines representing the age-old Italian style traditions and skills of passionate winemaking.
Artfully oaked in French barrels, each wine is an exclusive, limited release and will age perfectly for the oenophile’s collection. The higher tannins present allow each variety to pair well with rich dark meats & game, earthy foods and herbaceous cheeses. Decanting is recommended to bring out the characters hidden in every bottle." -Folino Estate
We recently had the opportunity to create the 2018 Gala video for the Allentown Rescue Mission. This project meant so much to us for many reasons.

I recently discovered this incredible tulip farm, Holland Ridge Farms, after a post I saw on Instagram! I saw that it was in New Jersey and knew I had to take the drive. Well, who better to take with me than my flower and fashion loving friend, Andrea. We took the drive out there with outfits that perfectly matched the flowers and made magic happen. You honestly cannot take one bad picture in this place. It was a dream. Check out some shots I took of Andrea while we were there. She took some pretty cool ones of me too!
So who wants to plan a shoot for next year?
I also hear they have a sunflower field in September!
Of course I had to get some photos of myself at this place!
Special thanks to my talented friend Andrea Folino for taking these.
Finally got to edit some of my favorite shots from our trip to Yosemite National Park. This was one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life. To feel so small in God's grand creation was amazing and took my breath away.
Also, check out this incredible video Christian made!

Pregnancy is such a special sweetness in being able to participate in creation. It's always an honor to capture these early moments of motherhood. Congratulations to Bridgette and Henry on their bundle of joy coming soon!
A local family reached out to us to design an invitation for their son's baptism. So we drew some inspiration from their initial ideas. We envisioned a wintery, light and clean design. They loved the final product! It's always nice when we have the opportunity to tap into other creative abilities besides photography. Don't forget... if you need something designed, contact us! We're ready to tackle any creative project.

We have been photographing the Pickens family for over 4 years. It's been so amazing to watch their family grown. I remember little Anthony when he was a newborn. This is definitely one of the best parts of our job. Here are some of our favorites form their recent family session. Isn't that golden light so beautiful?!
Had so much fun photographing Weston. This little guy was all smiles! He made my job easy!
Here are some of our favorites from his 1st birthday session.
