I’m so glad you are sticking around to get to know a little more about me and what I love to do. I am a professional on-location photographer based outside of Philadelphia. I specialize in wedding, newborn, and family lifestyle photography. I love close-ups, big hugs and secret whispers. I adore the amazing people I’ve been able to meet and then have the opportunity to create the most perfect images that captures the personalities and the emotions of the moment. I enjoy meeting new clients and love making them lifelong clients. I love watching those family grow each year and that I’m the person they choose each year to capture that.
When I’m not behind the camera, I’m being loved by these five handsome men in my life! I have a wonderful and supportive husband, Jesse (of 15 years) who was my high school sweet heart and is still very much the love of my life. We have 4 beautiful boys that are constantly keeping us on our toes, but is quite a fantastic adventure. There is never a duel moment in the Yacoe home. I am mainly a stay at home mom while chasing my photography dream! These little boys have already grown up so fast. I know how it feels to think that you’re missing out on memorable moments and that is the true reason I love photography because you can capture those little moments and save them forever.
I love what I do and I truly put my heart and soul into my work. I want the photos I take to be so real, that when you look back at them, you are temporarily returned to that incredible moment in time. Come join me on this journey...
Why this is Important to Me
I grew up with a camera in my face. My mom had to document everything, and now? I’m so grateful for it! I’ve been in your shoes. I understand the constraints on your time, and the desire to capture the growth of these little ones before time slips away. I know the pain at the end of a day when you wonder if you’ve hugged everyone enough, taken the time to tell them you love them despite the hectic rush of the week, and maybe a raised voice here and there. I understand the joy of small accomplishments, which are really the big victories in life. I found that the best way to slow down time, was and is to capture the little moments.
Custom Photography and Me
I will be honest with you…custom photography is not for everyone. It is more expensive than having your photo taken in a high-volume studio in the mall. There are also so many photographers for you to choose from in this business, and I’m not going to pretend like I’m better than any of the rest of them. Custom photography should be a very personal experience, which creates a partnership between the client and the photographer. By working together, we can create a shared vision that will be preserved forever.
First you need to find a style that you like. Since you are here, I’m guessing you like what you see! Whether I’m photographing your wedding, new life entering the world or special moments as your family grows, I want to provide my clients with images that truly captures them and their family along with the love they share.
From your initial contact with me to the hand-editing of images after your session, I strive to give each of my clients the one-on-one service that they are looking for. No detail is too small. Custom photography is not for everyone, but if you believe in creating and preserving memories instead of just getting snapshots, it may be for you. I’m here to be a support and I hope to become a part of the story that you are making with your family.
If you think that a custom photography session is perfect for you and your family, please take a few minutes to browse through my gallery to see if my style is what you are looking for in your session. If you have any questions, please give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to assist you in any way I can!
