Valley Garden Park Engagement Session with Christina & Derrick and their Jeep

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Valley Garden Park in Delaware makes for a wonderful back drop for an engagement session. Part of a successful session and event coverage is a connection with the couple and their families and friends. When clients feel comfortable with us and trust our vision, we are able to capture not only amazing and intimate moments but also create artistic images that would not be possible without such trust.

Chrissy and DJ received a recommendation to inquire about our photography from a very dear photographer colleague. Chrissy and I had an instant connection when speaking about the wedding day on the phone. From there we decided Valley Garden was perfect for the engagement session since they wanted nature and stream or lake but nothing too manicured :) DJ is not supper keen on posing for photos but once we included his favorite Jeep, he warmed up and we all had a wonderful time.

Both mike & I are extra excited to photograph their wedding tomorrow.


Equine Portraits ~ Jordyn’s Pre Bar Mitzvah Session ~ Pennsylvania Mitzvah Photographer ~ Jana Bannan

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

Jordyn’s Equine pre Bat Mitzvah session at Worcester Stables is one of my long time favorites. I knew we would get along perfectly well the first time I met Jordyn’s mom Debbie and she mentioned that J was a lover of horses and an avid rider. There was nowhere else but at the barn where she trains that I wanted to photograph her getting to know you session. After a few mandatory snaps in a dress, it was time for equine attire and horses. Jordyn lit up and absolutely loved introducing me to all her favorites in the barn – horses that is – and demonstrating her skills riding and jumping Buddy. I loved documenting her talents with equal enthusiasm.

I love making such connections with the Mitzvah children that I photograph and their families. It makes for beautiful memories and images that will hopefully stay with the family for years.

We are looking forward to documenting Jordyn’s Bat Mitzvah this weekend. It promises to be a great party.

Terrain at Styers is one of our favorite places to visit ~ for inspiration, for an amazing cup of coffee, or for a wonderful lunch.

Newborn Session ~ Tiny baby C ~ mkPhoto ~ Pennsylvania Newborn Photographer

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

While we all adore babies and all the props that are currently in, I am still the biggest fan of baby with mommy and daddy photos that almost bring tears to the eyes. SO much love and tenderness for the new baby addition. We love to see our clients’ families growing and having the opportunity to capture the love.
