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.

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.

Sharing a super special fall family session today. Little J welcomed a new brother and he was pretty excited about it, until it was time to show me his new 4wheeler. We all had much fun and I am in love with the Lifestyle photos that we were able to capture.

Can you say ATTITUDE? These two had plenty! Maddie was supposedly practicing her serious pose for quite some time. I would say she nailed it. Time flies and I can hardly believe the twins are six. I absolutely adore these two and their lively characters. They were up for any adventure and ended up sharing one of their special bubble machines with me!


Missy French - We had a great day with you, Jana! Thank you for making it a fun day of capturing moments to last a lifetime.

Caitlin lives in Nicaragua and is home for the summer so we took the opportunity to make some photographs for her senior portraits. There’s something very classic about her. She loves art!

Here is the photo set from a fun, fresh air lifestyle photography session Jana photographed recently. We really see the personalities come through in these captured moments!

It’s definitely not too late to give us a call to schedule a shore session with your family!

Love-filled lovely family with little pups for little boys! The black and tan Jack Russels are Leo and Theo are hunt terriers and of course they stole the show! We’d like to give Puppy Wrangling credit to Luci (mini mk) :) !

One of our favorite mommies, Annalee:
“I seriously can’t stop looking at these photos! I can’t pick just one because they all turned out so beautifully! Thank you for capturing our family perfectly Jana! We love them and we love you! Even Kevin didn’t complain about pictures this time :-)”

Lifetime of memories; we walked in lugging our cameras for this warm family session and saw our images from their wedding on all over their beautiful home! This drew smiles onto our hearts as we set up to photograph the latest addition to the family: this precious 1 week old baby Chase (SOMEONE is a Phillies fan!!) —super interested in everything but sleep! And little Avery didn’t want us to leave “can we play more…” :-) What a sweet, curious and engaging little girl!

We value our long term client relationships and are always astounded when we look back and realize that our new moms and dads were once newlyweds, and before that we were all brand new to each other as we photographed their engagement session.. Time goes on! It’s worth mentioning that hiring a wedding photographer often turns into a years long relationship, outlasting just about any other that comes from all of the planning and hiring for your wedding day.

It’s these relations that make photography so enriching for us, so rewarding, so beautiful, special. And it begs the question: How can so much love be contained inside a photo set?
