The Carpenters

One of my favorite things about photographing families, is taking the time to learn how they are as individuals and as a single family unit. Using what I learn, I love designing albums for them to relive the fun we all have together.

For Laura, Dan, Maddie, and Owen, their story and their joy includes everyone! We all gathered at True Vine Farm in Strasburg, put on our warmest faces, and had the best time together!

Baby Teagan

Newborn babies can be difficult to work with sometimes as they're sensitive to being poked and prodded and molded for hours on end; but Teagan was the exception to the rule. Over 3 hours of modeling and she was a perfect little angel! The love between her and her brothers and her and her mommy and daddy was almost too much to handle. This is why lifestyle portraiture is my specialty and pulls hard at my photography heart strings!

Here's To New Beginnings!

I have worked tirelessly over the past 12 months to bring some kind of balance to my life. From learning the ins and outs of being a mom, to buying my first house through the busiest of wedding and holiday seasons and now navigating the way to stand out in this industry!

So today... in one single solitary day... I completely revamped my website! I needed something fresh and new and (hopefully) easier to keep up with! I have so much amazing work to share and am really ready to commit to sharing everything I feel so passionate about! Enjoy!

Baby Rita

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!

New sisters - Zoelle and Colette!

I've been photographing Zoelle since she was just a tiny 4 month old baby. This year, just before her 5th birthday, her portrait session was shared with someone else! Her baby sister Colette, at 10 weeks old, had her first photoshoot with me and Zoelle was as excited as I was. She stood next to me doing everything in her power to coax a smile or giggle out of her baby sister. We had such a great time together as we always do! I can't wait for Zoelle's 6th birthday when Colette is running around! Hopefully Zoelle will help me catch her :)

Kristen + Matt

From their engagement session I knew these two would be a blast to photograph on their wedding. Boy did I underestimate that! From their adorable first sight to the energetic nonstop dance party, I was never lacking a moment to document. It was a blast and a complete honor to be involved in their wedding day!

Liliana Rose

April 26, 2015 my beautiful cousin gave birth to baby #2, Liliana Rose! Unlike her first, we didn't know if she was having a boy or a girl so the phone call was filled with excitement and tears. She is beautiful and petite and Nicholas is already showing how amazing of a big brother he is going to be to her. I couldn't be happier for Lauren and her growing family!

Janie and Jack

17 families in 2 days! Is that a record somewhere? Probably not because Janie and Jack's all over the country host this amazing photographic opportunity a few times a year to their customers. I was one of the lucky photographers that had a mini studio set up to be the photographer for one of these events! In a small corner of the Janie and Jack in the King of Prussia mall, I was able to capture all of these adorable moments over 2 days. It was very hard to edit down for this blog post but that only means I had such great models! Maybe I will get the chance to do it again next time and see these adorable faces once more!

Baby Cutri

Today's the big day when Baby Cutri arrives! What a perfect day to share these amazing photos. We had such a wonderful time working in Baby C's nursery. Then we trekked our way to Manayunk for a beautiful studio session. I am so excited for Erin and Joe and I can't wait to meet Baby C!!!

Big brother to-be

From when he was just a tiny 6 month old, I have been photographing Nicholas. Now 3 years old, he is preparing to be a big brother! He loves his mom and dad and loves even more having all of the attention. But the more I talked to him, the more I hear how excited he is to take on the role of being a big brother. From checking his mommy's tummy to giving her a rose and a kiss because "mommy's beautiful"; Nicholas is ready to show his new baby brother or sister just how to win the hearts of everyone around.

Zoe Miller

I would never venture to call myself an expert in photographing newborns. But when you get to photograph the newborn baby of your friends, you know you can experiment and get creative. Zoe was awake for way more of the session than we anticipated but she was such a great sport. Especially when we surrounded her with flowers, or when we continuously attempted to have her balance her head on her cute little hands.  Hopefully she doesn't grow up to hate me since she is stuck with me as her photographer forever.

Ano and Mila

To say I have the best job in the world is an understatement. I have had the amazing pleasure of photographing Kristiano since he was just a tiny big eyed baby. He has been a photographer's gem of a model from then on. Three years later, my little guy is now a big brother! Mila, now a year old, has her brother's eyes and her very own personality. She is full of love and laughter and the sweetest smiles. It's incredible to say that part of my job is to document these two munchkins as they grow.

Small Business Saturday!

Sometimes what "small business" means to people are higher prices than the retail Giants out there. But what it really means is that you can work one-on-one with someone who will remember your name and care about what you want and what you were looking for. They will remember your name and your kids' names, they will remember what you love every time you walk in the door. Today's the day we help those small businesses out by shopping with them for our holiday gifts! Support the businesses that are family oriented and not the businesses that opened up on 4 PM on Thanksgiving to pull people away from their families all for the sake of making even more money. Shop with the people who are honest about their prices and not the ones who hike them up just to tell you it's 30% off for one day only.

In honor of small business Saturday email hello@littlebluebox.photo for 30% off of gift certificates... now until December 31st. Give it as a gift for a family photo, a beautiful senior portrait, or even towards a wedding! Gift certificates never expire and are good for sessions or Beautiful prints, canvases or framing.

The gift of memories encapsulated in a photograph is a gift that lasts a lifetime!

Ashley + Todd

Ashley and Todd tied the knot on a beautiful but chilly November day. I was so happy to be asked to photograph her wedding since 2 years prior I had the opportunity to photograph her Matron of Honor's wedding! It meant so much to be asked back for another amazing family event.

Despite the warmest of thoughts, we retired our outdoor photos to the stunning interior of The Park Savoy Estate in NJ. It's vintage throwback to the romantic 20's is the perfect backdrop for a bride and groom's portraits. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Danielle & Clint + One

It's hard to put into words how much my friends mean to me. When they ask me to photograph for them to document a very special moment in their lives, it's an honor I can't describe. So when Danielle and Clint, who I have known for years, ask me to photograph them for the first time I was so excited and even nervous! It's been over 3 years since this couple tied the knot and I have been secretly anticipating this moment... They are expecting a baby!

So we walked around my absolutely favorite spot in Lansdale, the abandoned freight station, and had so much fun together. We laughed and shivered and I photographed way more images than I would have expected. But just look at them?! Cute, photogenic and glowing with anticipation. I love these two and can't wait for little baby Zoey!! Coming February 2015...

Missy + 3

There must be something in the water these days... Kids are just cuter than ever. Was I this cute growing up? Were my eyes this blue?
Holy cow! These 3 munchkins were so much fun and so photogenic, if it wasn't 40 degrees out I would probably have kept photographing until they fell asleep. We spent about an hour together, running around
The Manor House at Prophecy Creek Park.  It may be hard to tell, but a lot of these moments are candid. When they were sick of us saying "HEY LOOK OVER HERE!" that's when the magic happened. Jackson, Max and Quincy are my new little buddies!

Tiffany + Josh

"We're all mad here..."

Tiffany and Josh's wedding was filled with tons of subtle nuances to perfectly compliment their Mad Hatter theme. Feathers and pastels along with strong purples and hand crafted decor made the most personalized and festively fun wedding!

100% of the decorations were painstakingly designed and set up by Tiffany and her amazing bridal party and family. Tiffany's brooch bouquet was made up of bridal shower gifts and assembled by her matron of honor Kris Yablonski.

The Parsons

On a beautiful crisp fall day just an hour before sunset, I got to spend time with this adorable family! Blake turned 1 in August and this day was his special photoshoot with Mom and Dad. We walked around Columcille Park, where Jess and Pat had their small and intimate wedding ceremony. It was the perfect backdrop and the perfect weather to document this special time in their lives together!
