Longwood Gardens Maternity Session

Longwood Gardens Maternity Session | PA Family Photographer

You probably remember this beautiful face from a past blog post. I met Val + Ricky at Elise + Daniel’s wedding and saw her beam with pride as her brother married his beautiful fiance. I’m pretty sure I squealed when she told me she was expecting, and even more when she said she wanted a maternity with me! That’s how their beautiful Longwood Gardens maternity session was born! It’s another favorite from my 2019 season and it gives me all the feels.

I love this little family. I’m sure Val has her hands full now with two boys, but she’s going to experience that much more love from them both. You can’t tell in most of these photos, but oh my goodness, the WIND. I think we picked the windiest day on record. Thankfully we got to use the conservatory and saved ourselves from being toppled over. I think this is the perfect spot for a Longwood Gardens maternity session, it’s super versatile and teeming with plant life.

On another note, can you even with the photos of RJ and his mama?! RJ really is just a cutest little guy. He got SO into having his photo taken, I’m still impressed. I know he’s going to be one awesome big brother and show the new little guy the ropes. I’m sure Val is feeling all the love now that her second babe is earthside! That’s 3 boys who love her wholeheartedly, and all the hugs and kisses she could possibly need. Congratulations Val, Ricky, and RJ!! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for your sweet family!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
