Logan and Luke

I couldn't wait to see this baby. And also to lend my D70 to his big brother, who I just adore.
I knew their mom would look fantastic with a 1 week old. I just knew it. Plus, here's a dad who anchors every photo with these boys. I love it.

Jeanne Petrosky

Jeanne Petrosky had an open house.

I met Jeanne ages ago. Our worlds collide now and then.
Her paper sculpture really does convey an attitude of strength. I won't try to rephrase what she's already said so well!

a house to be torn down

Ahhhh, development. But before it goes, I trespassed with the Limerick Historical Society.

More photos of the house here.

Just a few months to go!
This has been a wonderful family to get to know through senior portraits and weddings.
Thank you!


suprise for their mother

When everyone is home from college for the holidays, it's a good time to do those things that require photographing the kids who aren't usually around. This is a surprise for their mom. Bonus points to the dad who thinks of these things.

Boudoir info

I've had a lot of requests lately. Thank you to J, A, K, and K... you know who you are.
Here's some information for those who are looking.

Typically, 1-2, possibly 3 hours. It sounds like a long time. But it allows for changing outfits and finding your inner sex goddess. This takes some people longer than others. And I understand!

Either at your home or we find a bed and breakfast and split the price. Most of the ones in Philly are $150 for the day.

I charge $350 for the session. Albums and prints are a la carte. The images are put online in a password protected gallery. A 6x6 album with 30 pages /30 images is $300. This is a nice sized album for most men to have. I also offer other sizes. About 70-100 images make the edit, depending on outfits etc.

Boudoir is more about the eyes and the attitude than the outfit. I strive to help my clients feel comfortable, not rushed, and never cheap or cheesy. I just had a spam email about a seminar on boudoir. Honestly, the images looked uncomfortable, had no personality, and looked like the women were objects. I get the impression from most men that a smart confident woman with the ability to knock their socks off does more for their ego. Boudoir should be a celebration of who you are. And the images should bring a fellow to his knees.

If you'd like to meet or schedule a session, feel free to contact me. I typically meet clients at a Starbucks in King of Pussia, depending on where they are. I also understand that these sessions are usually surprises, and I'm fine with being discreet. It's amusing how many women sneak around to meet with me, a happily married soccer mom.
