Hello all! Welcome back on this beautiful Tuesday!
Please help welcome back Drew and Addison to the blog! They are frequent fliers of Holly Haddad Photography, which I love! Thanks mom for allowing me to capture your precious little ones! They are so totally adorable and so much fun to photograph! Check out some of their past shoots here, and here (and there’s even a session or two i didn’t blog! gasp!)!
And now here’s a baby in Sperry’s and a tie for you to enjoy!
Happy Cinco de Mayo! (or Cinco de Drinko as a past me used to call it…) Now it comes in a different form as my day yesterday was filled with sweets and activities for my daughter’s birthday! Yes my daughter was born on Star Wars day, something she will always be reminded of. I like to joke that Sami stresses out over Star Wars day, but that’s just because he has to choose just ONE Star Wars shirt to wear ALL day… this can be a painstaking decision. Anyways – I’d love to share a few shots of my brand new two year old. Cake smashes are for one year olds (even though in all honestly I think a two year old would have way more fun) and I have an idea for three, but nothing for two. Did a lil internet research and came up with a balloon/party themed shoot. Pair this with a cute tutu (upcycled from Halloween), new bright red chucks, and a cute peace sign onsie (aka two! – thanks hubby for the great idea) for a super fun shoot! I had originally thought maybe some confetti, then my sanity rang the bell and I decided I was okay with not cleaning up hundreds of tiny little pieces of paper. The shoot did take some time to set up. People keep asking how… well – blew up the balloons and taped them to the wall in an every other pattern so that they sort of nestled into each other. I tied some fishing line up and hung some ribbon from it to give the ribbons a 3D effect. It was def a challenge to get a 23 month old to sit and smile AND look at the camera. Bribery came over to play for the first time and that helped tremendously! Then the hubby came home and helped get just a few more smiles! One question I do have is… who the heck taught my kid to duck face?! : P
Hi friends! Welcome back! Today’s post introduces some new clients! These guys were too cute and Mr Jacob kept us laughing! Even while editing these I could not help but laugh out loud! He has a crazy handsome smile that will some day knock the socks off the ladies! Nele and Brad are awesome parents and their new little one will be loved a ton by all three of them! This was my first shoot (crazy!) at Roger Williams Park and I loved it! What a great way to spend a Saturday morning! Thanks guys and best of luck with the new baby!
But seriously, when is this “winter” going to end? ::grumble grumble:: Anyhow… remember this gorgeous couple? Um, so here is their gorgeous off spring… baby Violet! Soooo flipping cute. It was a great visit with a past bride, client, and now mom (and her awesome sister!). These couples mean so much to me! It makes me all warm and fuzzy when they ask me to photograph their most precious achievement! Big thanks to mom and dad for allowing me to capture this beautiful lil peanut! <3

Check out these love birds! What a beautiful wedding for the first of Holly Haddad Photography’s busy season! Linden Place never looked more beautiful thanks to John Orton Flowers and Events, and delicious catering by 195 Franklin. Dave and Mallory… and Sarah looked amazing and so happy to become a family. Big huge congrats to these guys, I couldn’t have asked for a better event to kick of the 2014 wedding season!
Best of luck guys!
Check out this cutie!
This was my first time meeting Max and his family and he is quite the little cutie! I could not get over that lil wave in his hair! We had a great little 6 month session!
Here’s another beautiful maternity session! This one was shot at Borderland’s Park in Easton which is always gorgeous for photos and this day was no exception! It was one of the first days over 30 in a LONG TIME. So that was fabulous! Momma was a trooper trudging through the ankle deep snow! All in all it was a great day and I’m super excited to be shooting the newest edition in April!
Sit down for this… two blog posts in consecutive days! What?! Yes I’m serious!
This is a super special post as K, momma to be, is a co-worker of mine and big sister G is a friend of my own daughter! I was so happy when she asked me to do her shoot! Being the champion Pinner that she is I KNEW there were def be a few special shots, and though they didn’t all “work” we did get some fabulous shots of this awesome family! We started out at Island Grove Park in Abington on, oh gee, maybe one of the coldest days this year??? LOL Don’t get me wrong, the snow is beautiful, but it was a wee bit chil- ARCTIC. But we persevered (big kudo’s to G here for holding it together so well!) and got some super fun shots! After Island Grove we headed back to home base for a few more shots and I think they came out spectacularly! Buuuut I won’t hold you up any longer… see for yourself!
Welcome back! It’s been a little while but ’tis the season!
Meet the Taiwo family. Super sweet, extremely photogenic, and very excited to be welcoming a baby girl this spring!
We planned this shoot and hoped and prayed for there to be snow on the ground. Well, we must have done a good job, because not only was there snow ON the ground there was also snow in the air! Fabulous! Nothing spells amazing light quite like snow everywhere! It started to fall pretty heavy towards the end but it was so fun to shoot in! I’m super excited to share these with you! And be sure to “Like” Holly Haddad Photography on Facebook to see teasers and previews before they are posted here! Quite a few maternity shoots in production!
Happy New Year!
Hope 2014 is treating you well!
The very last wedding of my 2013 season ended spectacularly for me! I was referred to Melissa and Steve by one of my beloved Nestie ladies! Long story short, my friend Laura, of Elegant Events by Laura, who I met through the website The Knot way back when we were planning our own weddings, is bff’s with Melissa! So when the plan was in the works to marry in Massachusetts (home of the groom) Laura referred me, and Melissa concurred! Yay working with friends on a gorgeous winter wedding! The beautiful couple and I met up at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum for some formals and oh la la! Amazing sunlight + a fun couple + fun sculptures = a happy HHP! So before I chat your ear off… enjoy!
