Hi friend!

To me, your photo session is about way more than faking a few smiles for the camera.  It’s about getting to know each other so that I can catch a glimpse of who you *really* are as a family when the camera’s *not* around.

Consider this a *mutual* investment.

This is your chance to invest back into your family and finally capture all your favorite moments laughing, playing, and cuddling together.

This is also a chance for me to invest in YOU.

You get to relax and enjoy your children while I work my magic to help you freeze time!  That’s really a no-brainer, right?

Everyone Can
Make An Impact

I believe everyone has a superpower. 

Whether yours is raising empowered little people, investing in your community, or just being your most authentic self...

I see you and I am here for it.

In addition to family and newborn photos, I also love giving back to the community!  My photography frequently allows me to support local progressive political campaigns, protests and rallies, Philadelphia public schools, and various women's health projects.  In addition, I also run the 100 Black Dads Project, a photo project that highlights the caring, nurturing side of black fatherhood.

If you or a loved one is interested in learning more about my community-based projects, please get in touch.

I Can't Wait To Capture Your Family's Joy

Your family loves adventure — playing outside, exploring, learning, discovering. These aren’t moments that can be captured in a studio. I’ll capture your family smiling, laughing, and playing together on your home or on location in your favorite Philadelphia spot. After an hour or so walking through Bartram’s Gardens, playing around the Art Museum, jumping in the leaves in Chestnut Hill, or sharing an ice cream cone at Spruce Street Harbor Park, you’ll have photos of an experience your family will treasure forever.
