Madelyn Photo Shoot November 2014

Last weekend I spent an afternoon in the last of autumn’s beauty to capture Madelyn, my niece,  in a set of portraits. It was a very chilly afternoon and in between shots she threw her jacket on and we shivered our way to the next location. Madelyn is a beautiful young lady so even though it was cold, her beauty shined through in the images.

Madelyn wanted to look serious and glamorous but it was fun making her laugh so as to capture the Madelyn I know…silly, fun, hilarious and sweet.

The series from that day is posted on my website tessadowns.com. Come check them out!

Downs Family Portrait Session: November 2014

This past weekend I photographed my brother Noah and his wife Mary and their children. It was a beautiful autumn afternoon in the park spent being silly and getting in some shots to capture their sweet family. We got a LOT of images in the hour we were in the park and I think they turned out beautifully!

Enjoy this sneak preview and the collection will be up on my website tessadowns.com by weeks end.

Chad and Kira engagement session

I was thrilled to take the engagement portraits for my dear friend Kira and her fiancé Chad. I took a trip out to Lewisburg, Pennsylvania a few weeks ago and we were able to get some beautiful autumn shots of places that were important to the couple. Kira is beautiful soul and I’m glad she found such a loving partner in Chad.

I’m glad to have spent time with them hearing stories about meeting, first dates, falling in love on a motorcycle ride and their engagement story that unfolded on a bridge in the middle of the woods. I’ve heard these stories from Kira half a dozen times, but if was the first time I heard her talk about their courtship in his presence and with his input. It was truly lovely.

These are a few images I took with them during their session. If you visit my website tessadowns.com you can see more from the session. These are a few of our favorites that I wanted to share!

I travel for sessions and am located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If you’d like to contact me to set up a portrait session or a wedding consultation you can contact me through my website.

 

Happy November everyone!
