Health + Fitness Photography / Schuylkill River Banks @ Philadelphia PA

When someone has a PhD, has kicked cancer's butt, works at a premier institution, and moved to Philly to help lead others into living a healthy lifestyle and wants you to take her picture, it's a no-brainer and a heck yes!

Meet Jill. There is no health tidbit, fact, research, article et al she does not know about, and I'm so excited for her to share her knowledge to make sure people are aware and proactive about their health and medical issues to the fullest extent. I had the experience of working on the administrative end within a hospital supporting surgical oncology awhile back -- dedicated medical professionals are truly amazing people to work with and Jill is no exception! Can't wait to see what she does in 2017!

But first, some snaps from our time together this past summer:

Radiant? Check.

Engagement Ring + Updates

Happy Friday! This icy weather can only be surpassed by this nice piece of ice (oh, so corny!).

Just a quick update for you all: The new website is coming SOON and, a little later, a blog migration; I have a new camera and that is fantastic; and I'm just loving the Katelyn James Consistency Course, which is all about editing. I have used several tips already and the course isn't even over yet! Next up, a new computer and another new camera and lots of tech upgrades and updates. In the meantime, I'm catching up on 2016 shoots for the blog and, while I'm not done, I just had to immediately share this photo from Lauren Priori's collection -- so classic and so stunning. Stay warm, friends!

Health + Fitness Photography - Jayel Lewis New Balance / Schuylkill River Banks + Rittenhouse @ Philadelphia

Unicorns. That's basically what photography is about.

Before I lose you, let me explain… Taking photos in public means that you may have a grey morning and no sun and lots of people milling around but you must find unicorn moments no matter what. Thankfully, working with New Balance Fitness Ambassador Jayel Lewis @jayellewis a fitness and motivation superstar, is like finding a field of unicorns because she just brings. the. magic.

And, if you scroll down, you'll also find the photo where Jayel patiently allowed me to ask for more jumping. And then we won the Instagram lottery and her photo was reposted by: New Balance Women @nbwomen  / New Balance Deutschland @newbalance_de / New Balance Italy @newbalanceitalia / New Balance Denmark @newbalancedanmark / New Balance Norway @newbalancenorge / New Balance Iberia +New Balance Iberia

But more importantly, this workout outfit was amaze.

And now for the first jumping photo. Talk about heights!

Patiently waiting for the rainbow crew on the left to move along.

Some cool-down moments when the sun finally came out! Hello, backlight and lens flare!

Yep. She jumped, like, a bajillion times and still looked FLAWLESS every time.

Philadelphia Lifestyle Blogger Photography @ South Philadelphia

Here's the full session with Heather from awhile back -- just look at that golden light and wind! HEAVENLY. She rocked her session (and, yes, she knows she looks a little like Anna Paquin). So loved working on these photos for her because portraits are my jam. Hope your Monday is fantastic and you're (mostly) ready for the holidays!

M + D Wedding @ Brick Gables / Lititz, PA

"Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." 1 Corinthians 13

They were the most lovely and humble bride and groom. On a cloudy day with the promise of spring making its way through the bare winter trees and open tilled fields, M + D were married in a warm family- and friend-filled Brick Gables surrounded by smiles and happy tears. When the day was nearing its end, the dance party winding down, the cake was finished, and the vows were said, the sun broke through the clouds to shine as brightly as M + D's love. What a joyous day -- thank you, M + D and Kate Tandy Photography for letting me join the party!
