It was extremely out of our way, and we were a bit worried when they asked us to shoot at the local park across the street from their house. It didn't sound terribly dynamic to me. Man were we wrong! These were shot in Green Lake Park, which is a massive park encompassing over 8 miles of beautiful lake. The real challenge is getting everyone to look in the same direction at the same time while smiling!

Dogra Family at Valley Forge http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/8/dogra-family-at-valley-forge I love living in Chester County. Nowhere else can we find such perfect locations in one county. I had never done a family session at Valley Forge before, but we hike there all the time. The barn in Valley Forge provided the perfect backdrop and great light for this evening session. Enjoy!

Alexander Wedding in Sunset Beach, North Carolina http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/8/alexander-wedding-in-sunset-beach-north-carolina We had an AWESOME time working with Anna and Jim. We made this into a little vacation for the family and stayed the weekend. It took us 16 hours to drive from PA to NC, due to a ton of traffic on I-95 in the Richmond area. Not to mention the 110 degree heat! It was a long hot few days but we really enjoyed ourselves. The wedding was a beautiful sunset affair. I think I will let the pictures speak for themselves!

Fertig Family at Evansburg State Park http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/8/fertig-family-at-evansburg-state-park We were a little nervous about this location, because we had never been there before. It was about an hour away, not including the road blocks and getting lost! We loved this family's personality. They were total sports fans and after the "boring stuff" as the little one called it, was over, we got on our gear and had a fun game of baseball! Enjoy these images :)

Senior Portraits at Longwood! http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/8/-catching-up----seniors-families-and-weddings I know I have been horrible at blogging lately, I promise to try harder! We are up to 3 or 4 sessions a week now, which is so totally awesome, God has blessed us with great clients and a wonderful job. We enjoyed working with Morganne very much. She is a photographer herself and was a PRO at posing! I barely had to give any direction, it was great. Again, another stunning session at Longwood Gardens!

Bentzinger Family at Longwood Gardens http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/8/bentzinger-family-at-longwood-gardens This week we visited some of our favorite locations in Chester County for some family sessions. The weather held off long enough for this morning shoot and the results were great. Longwood Gardens is probably my favorite location in all of Chester County. The staff is so helpful and nice, and we have never had a bad shoot there! Enjoy some of the hundreds of photos from this family session :)

Jimmie Schramm http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/8/jimmie-schramm Jimmie and her husband Dom Schramm are by far my favorite clients. When Dom asked me a few months ago if we could plan a surprise session for his wife, I jumped at the chance! What a fun pair to work with. Just awesome Christian people. Here are some of my favorite shots of the evening!

Springton Manor Farm http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/7/springton-manor-farm Springton Manor Farm is one of my favorite places in Chester County to photograph, second only to Longwood I think. It's so dynamic and there are different pockets of a variety of things like animals, barns, tractors, etc. We met Sak and Danielle through Living Social, and had a fantastic time photographing their wonderful family.

Lindsey and Tony in Avalon, New Jersey Beach http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/7/lindsey-and-tony-in-avalon-new-jersey-beach  

Lindsey and Tony was probably one of my favorite couples sessions to date. We had such a great time trying all different poses and crazy things. They were totally up for everything and anything. I really enjoy working with couples like that. Lindsey is a professional model and we just looked for her in the season premiere of "Political Animals" on USA! We took so many images it is hard to choose just a few for this blog, but we will give it a try!

Donohue Family at Sea Isle City, New Jersey Beach http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/7/donohue-family-at-sea-isle-city-new-jersey-beach We had a great shoot with the Wills family in Sea Isle City. We got up early to drive from Downingtown, PA to be in Sea Isle for an 8AM shoot. Despite an early morning, we hit no traffic and made it in good time. I really enjoy shooting on the beach, even though sand gets in EVERYTHING! We got a few good family shots before letting the kids play and wrapping up the session.

Devon Engagement- Lindsey and Connor http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/devon-engagement--lindsey-and-connor This has to be my favorite engagement shoot of all time. This couples met at the famous Devon Horse Show, and they decided to do their engagement pictures there as well. As an avid horse lover and rider, I was all too happy to take them up on this opportunity. The ideas kept flowing and we took way more than our usual amount of photos on this shoot! Congrats on a beautiful engagement you guys!

Linvilla Orchards Birthday http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/linvilla-orchards-birthday On June 2nd we celebrated Jay T's 1-year birthday! It was a beautiful warm Saturday at the Linvilla Orchards near Media, PA. The day featured hay rides, fabulous food, and best of all destroying a birthday cake! I very much enjoyed working with this entire family, but not nearly as much as Jay T enjoyed his cake ;)

Chanticleer Gardens http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/5/gwen-and-joe-chanticleer-gardens-engagement We had a beautiful Friday evening to shoot the engagement session for Gwen and Joe. They were an awesome couple with a fun loving and easy going personality. I really enjoyed shooting with them. We only had a minimal amount of time to get "the shots", but I think we did really well considering. It has been a while since we posted anything, but photography is really picking up now. We should get blogs rolling out every couple of days. 

If you have never taken the time to go to Chanticleer I suggest you do. It is a serious hidden gem right in the heart of Chester County. It is alot like Longwood Gardens except to me, more wildly romantic. They also have wonderful spots for picnicking, lounging, and playing sports. 

Hope everyone enjoys!

It Has Been a Whirl Wind! http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/5/it-has-been-a-whirl-wind Hey everyone! Thank you for bearing with us here at Right Start Photography while we attempt to work out the kinks of a new website and a new blog. I will post a few general photos here now rather than multiple blog entries, as we are doing our best to catch up. Fortunately there has not been too much excitement now that we are over the hump of one month in. Let me know what you guys think!


Kim Gregorian at Longwood Gardens. Kim was a joy to work with, and the backdrop at Longwood always makes my job so easy:



Next up is Emma Fennelly from a local horse farm. She was not actually the hired client, but we took about 15 minutes to work with her and very much enjoyed what we got.


And lastly, we have pictures from the Berry Wedding at Sweetwater Farms. I must say, this location was absolutely a photographers play house. Everywhere you turned there was excellent lighting, a gorgeous backdrop, and the lighting was perfect. It was my first time shooting as a second this year, and I am please with the results. Here are just a few!

Wayland Family http://jwdarnell.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/4/wayland-family It was a beautiful afternoon when we got the Springton Manor Farm. It was the first time both Matt and myself had been there and I am beyond extremely pleased with the outcome. We were able to shoot in a variety of places and gained some great experience working with the kids. I will absolutely be using this location again.
