Chestnut Hill Philadelphia Photo Walk

chestnut hill 5

So, here is the big announcement:

I Heart Faces is hosting Photo Walks

all around the country on Saturday, June 5.

chestnut hill Angie asked me if I would be a leader in Philadelphia.

I was super nervous and I had to think about it for a few hours.

Or a day.

{Something like that}

In the end, I decided it would be a wonderful thing

to meet photographers from this area.

chestnut hill 1 I contacted some of my super amazing photographer friends,

and with their help,

I know it is going to be a spectacular day.

chestnut hill 2 Chestnut Hill is gorgeous.

It is rich with history and detail.

The fantastic children’s toy store, O’Doodles

is going to allow us to use their toys as props

and they are also going to supply

a Cat in the Hat model!

How great is that?

We are also going to be shooting at

Christ Ascension Lutheran Church,

which was built in 1869.

It is stunning.

chestnut hill 3 We are going to have additional models.

A delicious baby,

A sweet 8 year old,

2 high fashion models,

and a Bride!

If you are hoping to portfolio build

this will be a fantastic opportunity.chestnut hill 4 One thing I know for sure:

We will have fun.

Please sign up!

For just $6.26 you are bound to have a super day of shooting!

Hey!!! I'm so excited to go on the walk with you! Thanks for the comments! I'm excited to meet you, as well as share our passion of photography:)

LOL! So I have to be a brat and ask why $6.26? Austin Texas is only $5.00 to go!! :D

LOL! Totally kidding! So why not Boise Idaho! Wouldn't that be soooo cool too! Maybe I will go on a photo walk that day... all by myself... :(

I am so excited for you. This will be so much fun for you. I so wish I could join!!!

Never been on a photo walk but it sounds wonderful. Years ago we lived in NJ and took a high speed train into Philadelphia occasionally as that was where my then husband worked. I have always admired the history and beauty of Philadelphia.

I love these shots - every single one!

Wow, Rebeckah, that sounds really fun! Congratulations. Truly, I think you guys are going to have an absolutely crazy fun time. I am so jealous.
