Grant Family Session @ Winterthur Estate ~ Pennsylvania Portrait Photographer

Friday, December 4th, 2015

From engagement session through wedding and family photos over the years it has been a great pleasure to document all the important moments in this sweet family lives. It was amazing seeing the twins after few years. They grew like weeds. We really enjoyed all the fun ideas they had for “poses”. They made me cry thinking that we have been there with our cameras from the very beginning. We are so grateful when clients trust us to be there for them and appreciate all of our creativity. I remember being ten and hopping, skipping, and running with hand stands and cart wheels inserted like it was yesterday. What a great personality these two beauties have. Looking forward to the years to come.

Grello Belly Session ~ Brandywine Battlefield ~ Pennsylvania Maternity Photogapher

We enjoyed capturing images for Melissa and her husband and documenting life as two at the Brandywine Battlefield. We are anxiously awaiting the news that baby has arrived. And we are looking forward to capturing the precious bundle of joy.


Milo’s First Photo Session ~ Jana Bannan ~ at Rockwood Park ~ Delaware Portraits Photographer

Friday, November 27th, 2015

There was a time when I had to put these two lively characters into a tree to get a photo of them together. These days we have so much fun during photo sessions. We had a cute new puppy Milo join us and he stole the show!

Enjoy this fun little boy photo session.



Brent’s 007 Inspired Pre-Bar Mitzvah Portraits ~ Jana Bannan for mkPhoto ~ New Jersey Mitzvah Photographer

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

I have seen many fun theme and decor ideas at Mitzvahs and weddings over the years, but this one was cute and inspiring. Who doesn’t love a good James Bond movie. So the first time we met with Brent’s mom and idea came to me to incorporate the theme into our informal portraits. The entire family had so much fun acting out their roles that we laughed the entire time.

This session is a perfect blend of casual, loving family photos and more formal and serious images. I love the results and I am super excited for the party on Saturday.


Burns Family @ Rockwood Mansion ~ Jana Bannan for mkPhoto ~ Delaware Family Photographer

Throw back to warm summer days and the beautiful sunflower field in Unionville. Who knew it would become an instant attraction :) Aidan is a total pro at his annual photo session and his little brother Liam posed pretty well himself. I love when clients schedule a session each year and I get to see the children grow. After the field we continued the session at the beautiful grounds at Rockwood Mansion .
Always a pleasure. See you next year.


The A family ~ Jana Bannan for mkPhoto ~ Brandywine Park

There is so much I love about this family session. I have been working with the girls every year since they were babies. They are all full of personality and I love how it shows in images. It has been amazing watching them grow.


Newborn Baby Ella ~ Jana Bannan for mkPhoto ~ Pennsylvania Family Photographer

Friday, November 13th, 2015

From an enchanting engagement session at Longwood Gardens and stunning wedding at Ritz Carlton, Philadelphia and a fun maternity shoot to baby Ella. This is what DOCUMENTING LIFE is truly about. We adored this little bundle of sweetness. She was but a week old and enjoyed her firs session as much as we all did. Just look at those cheeks and lips. Verdict is that she looks like daddy when sleeping and like her mommy as soon as her eyes are open.

We can’t wait to be a part of her growing up and documenting all the little moments in the future.


Mallory & Jesse @ Lincoln Financial Field & Urban~ mkPhoto ~ Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

We absolutely adore this fun couple. Together we created beautiful images and all the love on the Eagles field resulted in a series of wins for the birds:)! Can’t be a coincidence. Mallory works for Urban Outfitters so after the stadium their adorable pup Harley joined us for a few photos at the Navy Yard. The interiors of the building are photographer eye candy. We even played with the blur look that seems to be popping up in all the fashion adds.
We are super excited to be photographing Mallory and Jesse’s big day next spring at One Atlantic
