Shamefully, over a year has passed since my last blog post. I suppose that's what happens when you have a baby of your own. But I felt compelled to pick back up my momentum with this insanely adorable lifestyle newborn portrait session. Baby Rita was only a week old to the day for this session and she was such a wonderful little model. Her energetic brother kept me on my toes and I captured some candid portraits of him as well but Rita stole the show! With her beautiful head of hair and rare but infectious smile... who couldn't totally fall in love!
Before I became the photographer I am today, my past careers have been quite all over the place. One of my favorites though was working at Rita's Water Ice in South Philly. It was there that I met a group of friends that helped get me through the awkward phase of not knowing anyone after having just moved to South Philly. Holly was one of those amazing friends that I am so happy I have reconnected with! She was and of course still is a beautiful girl with a great smile and warm personality. I was so honored she asked me to photograph her engagement to her amazing fiance Dave. They are a perfect match and we had a great time wandering around the WaterWorks!
