The Class of 2028 | Philadelphia Child Photographer

You had your first day of Kindergarten today!  You were so excited and I couldn’t have been more proud of you!  These photos are from morning drop-off, but the end of the day was equally exciting as you told me all about the day’s activities and your new friends.  After an entire year of stressing over choosing the right school for you, I am so relieved to know that you are in a place that you love.  Here’s to a great school year, my Kindergartener!!



Your brother had a hard time saying goodbye. <3


And one more shot for posterity…here are all of your “First Day” shots from Preschool to Kindergarten! 🙂


This post is the second installment of a weekly blog circle, documenting the first year of school (kindergarten) for The Class of 2028.  We are a group of moms and photographers spread out across the world, who are excited to capture this exciting time in the lives of our children.  Stay tuned for a new post each week, and be sure to read through the other blog posts in the circle.  Next up is Julie Moses!

Class of 2028 | Philadelphia Child Photographer

Last night we went for a walk after dinner.   You rode your bike, an activity that we definitely haven’t practiced enough this summer.  You’re a very nervous rider, probably made even worse by the fact that your training wheels clearly weren’t tight enough for your evening ride.  As I walked behind you, I noticed the sidewalks were broken and crooked and really hard for you to ride on.  But we kept encouraging you to keep trying, because there’s no other way to learn than to just keep trying.  I thought about this next journey you’re about to begin…starting kindergarten.  And as cheesy as it sounds, I thought about all the crooked and broken roads you’ll have to travel along the way.  I won’t be able to make them straighter or easier for you to travel.  You’re just going to have to keep trying, and I will be right there behind you, offering encouragement and the occasionally push to get started again.  My big boy, I am so proud of you and I’m so excited to watch you learn and grow this coming year.  I really hope you enjoy the ride!

This Philadelphia engagement photo session was so fun! I just love it when a couple is willing to go out and have fun, even when it’s cold and there’s still snow on the ground.

I loved meeting this expectant mom and dad for their in-home Philadelphia maternity photo session. Mom was simply radiant!

I recently traveled from Philadelphia to New York City to meet up with a friend and fellow photographer for a couple’s photo session.  I had so much fun watching these two explore the city and capturing these photos for them.
