The Brehony "Family" (Philadelphia Area Family Photographer)

As many are so fortunate to know, sometimes family extends beyond the people you are related to.  That is the case with these families who grew up together and care for each other as such.
One of the "kids" from these families had triplets a few months ago and as a surprise to him and his wife, they all chipped in to have me come and take pictures not only of the triplets with their mommy and daddy, but also with the whole extended "family".
It was a fun and busy morning with wardrobe changes, baby feedings, baby holding and everyone scrabbling to get as many pictures in as possible in a relatively short amount of time.
The Brehony boys (triplets) did awesome and so did everyone else :)
I was truly blessed to be a part of this very special gift.

The Buchner Family (Chester County Family Photographer)

I love having the opportunity photograph in new places and the Buchners are blessed to have an absolutely beautiful home and property to do just that. 
It was such a lovely fall day and I loved that their dog, Finnegan, tagged along and cooperated in nearly all of the pictures.  How fun!
Their little guy was mostly serious during the session, but even his serious face is adorable.  The highlight for his big brother was definitely when he and daddy got their picture taken on the tractor. 
I think it was a session that I think truly captured their love for where they live and the life they have created there.

Dent Family (Philadelphia Area Family Photographer)

This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing 2 extended families of 18 and the Dent family was first on the schedule.  We met at a beautiful location in Medford, NJ called Kirby's Mill.  Thankfully, though it was a cold morning, the sun warmed things up pretty quickly and it was very manageable.  All the kids seemed to be staying warm by running around and having fun with their cousins. 
It was truly a fun morning capturing this awesome family and I know they will treasure these images for many years to come.

Berry Family - Daddy's Home! (Philadelphia Area Family Photographer)

I had the absolute pleasure of working with these sweet boys and their mama twice this year, so that they could send pictures overseas to their daddy/husband serving in the military.  He recently came home and this past weekend I got to photograph the whole family :)
Smiles were abounding and it was clear that every moment was a true celebration of having him home. I was honored to get to capture some of that joy.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your service and your sacrifice and Welcome Home!!!

The Carr Family (Main Line Family Photographer)

Another family that I had the pleasure of photographing for the first time recently was the Carr family.   Beautiful inside and out, it was an easy task to capture great images of them. 
We had the perfect formula for a successful shoot: amazing weather + scenic location + a family that loves spending time together = ...  well see for yourself :)

The Schierse Family (Chester County Family Photographer)

Monday was Columbus Day, which meant it was a good opportunity to do some additional family sessions with those who were lucky enough to have the day off.  The Schierse family was one of those families, but I was the one who ended up being the lucky one to get to work with them.  We had so much fun "exploring" Springton Manor Farm.  I loved capturing the playfulness of each of the kids' personalities.  What a great morning filled with fun, smiles and even a few giggles!

The Bomberger Family (Chester County Family Photographer)

This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting another new family.  We had perfect weather to explore Springton Manor Farm and not only get some family pictures, but also throw in some play the leaves :)  It was a great session with an even greater family!  Take a peek.

The VeVerka Family (Chester County Family Photographer)

One of my greatest pleasures in this job is getting to see the same families each year and watching as the kids grow and personalities bloom.  This family is one of those precious families and I am so fortunate to get to spend time with them.  My face was sore from all the smiling I was doing behind the camera as I captured the spunky and full of joy personality of little M.
Thanks for sharing your family with me :)

Catching Up (Chester County Children and Family Photographer)

It has been too long.  I mean WAY too long since I have given this blog some attention and posted some images of the work that has been going on at Susan Ford Photography.  So here is just a glimpse into all the fun that has happened in the last few months.
