Sneak Peek for Lithe Method / Steve ESPO Powers Mural @ Point Breeze

Adventures. We have 'em.

I loved shooting with Lauren for her latest and greatest entry for Fit.Hip.Healthy at Steve ESPO Powers' latest and greatest mural at the Ralph Brooks lot in Point Breeze. We hung out here bright and early yesterday, so here's a sneak peek of the entire mural. (That's not really a sneak peek is it? Maybe a huge peek?) Read more about the mural here.

Check it out yourself at 21st and Tasker streets. Also, that "practice, practice, practice," graphic? That's based on Allen Iverson saying "practice" a bajillion times at a press conference. Which reminds me: What are the Sixers up to these days?

Engagement Session - Rachael + Anthony @ Race Street Pier + Schuylkill River Banks + South Street Bridge

She broke the rules for him. After a few attempts to meet up during the week, Rachael broke her no-plans-on-Sundays-ever rule to meet a brown-eyed guy with a hearty laugh, kind eyes, and sincere smile. All Anthony needed was to see Rachael's bright, blue eyes and beautiful soul on that Sunday afternoon at a street festival to know that he wanted to spend many more Sundays with her. And so they did.

Fast forward to a Friday night this past May when Anthony planned a surprise weekend camping trip. Little did Rachael know that there was a surprise within the surprise. They didn't head to their usual camping site but, instead, starting making a drive along the bucolic New England coastline of Connecticut to head to... Newport, Rhode Island.

This trip would soon become more than a simple surprise weekend getaway.  Hand in hand, Anthony walked with Rachael while also stealthily looking for the perfect place to propose to his perfect girl. When he finally found the perfect little spot on the beach, he asked her to marry him and she gave him the most perfect of answers: Yes.

Yes to a thousand Sundays and more.

Yes to a thousand weekend getaways and more.

Yes to a life together.

Rachael and Anthony plan to say the other two perfect words -- "I do" -- at the Free Library in Philadelphia next year. Can you imagine a better setting for these two happy lovebirds who love Philly?

Thank you to Rachael and Anthony for letting me capture the beginning of your engagement journey  from river to river starting at the Race Street Pier and ending at the Schuylkill River Banks with this amazing session. Congratulations and best wishes!

Hey Baby! / New Mother + Child Photography

Even though Mother's Day was a few months ago, it's feeling like Mother's Day here at Antrim + Spruce Photography today! Scott and Ingrid welcomed their little bundle of joy this summer -- Baby L we'll call her -- and Baby L is too cute for words! Those baby blue eyes, that playful smile,  the cherubic cheeks… how can you not fall in love with her? To watch someone become a parent and give themselves over to a tiny little being is simply an honor and a true joy. Ingrid and Scott, congratulations and thank you for letting me capture your journey to parenthood and having me capture a few moments with mom and darling Baby L on a warm summer day.
