So sorry to have waited so long to post this session but things, fortunately, have been very busy around here! I couldn’t be happier to have met this family…they are such loving people and our 2 year old sons are definitely besties!  I can’t wait to watch their little ones grow up and will follow them on all their adventures. Congratulations on your *newest* addition – she is a doll. Love you guys!Carolyn Clement Photography Carolyn Clement Photography Carolyn Clement PhotographyCarolyn Clement Photography Carolyn Clement PhotographyCarolyn Clement Photography Carolyn Clement PhotographyCarolyn Clement Photography Carolyn Clement Photography Carolyn Clement Photography

These photos were taken back in April…funny how quickly life gets in the way of editing. I’m in the process of compiling decades of photos and videos of my father’s family – Les Clements – to be presented at my grandmother’s 90th birthday in early Fall. While going through my own massive library, I came upon these images and I can’t believe I almost missed them.

If you were to ask me, my older brother or younger sister to think of something that reminds us of our father, we would probably list: wood carving, maple syrup, and the violin. From my earliest memories, my dad has serenaded us at every birthday, many evenings after dinner, and the occasional Saturday/Sunday morning. My father likes to learn songs on his own, so while the sound sometimes resembles the cry of a cat, he loves it, so I love it.

Looking at these moments, seeing my father studying Elliott’s face as he tentatively approaches the violin, makes me choke up just a bit. No matter what happens in life, my son will have no doubt that he was everything to his grandpapa. This is why I choose photography.

I met Christena and her daughter early one morning while we were at the park. It turns out, that same day was her due date. After playing for a short while in the cold, we made plans for a photo session with the newest member of their family once he or she (a surprise!) joined them.

Last week, I had the pleasure – and I mean honestly, Christena is such a sweet and inviting person, I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend – of photographing her little boy! Baby W. Only 7 days old, he made those perfect little baby cries and blinked with purpose, trying to see the world around him.

I am so honored to have been able to capture these moments in time. A sincere thank you to Christena, Bill, their daughter M. and son W.

Even on a warm Saturday afternoon when everyone is longing to be outside playing, the Smith Playground is so large that you can always find a nook to call your own. The Smith Playhouse and Playground is quickly becoming one of my favorite places in Philadelphia…Oh, and Elliott loves it, too!

As described on their website:

“Smith Memorial Playground & Playhouse opened its doors in East Fairmount Park in 1899.  Funded by Richard and Sarah Smith, the site was dedicated to the memory of their adult son, Stanfield.  Smith’s beautiful, 24,000 square foot Playhouse was designed solely as a play space for children by one of Philadelphia’s most prominent late 19th century architects, James H. Windrim.  The Playground is situated on its original historic landscape – 6 1/2 acres of open fields, wooded terrain, and sloped hills – and is home to the century old Ann Newman Giant Wooden Slide, a treasured play experience for generations of Philadelphia’s children, as well as other unique pieces of play equipment.

Smith’s mission is to provide children 10 and under from diverse backgrounds with free and accessible one-of-a-kind play experiences that meet their physical, behavioral, and developmental needs.”

We are now members at the Smith Playhouse and plan on spending many days – rain or shine – playing in this wonderful mansion.

My first week in Manayunk, I met Jennie – one of the sweetest and genuinely nice people I’ve met in a long time. Jennie has a daughter, Olivia (who Elliott just adores!), and on March 18, friends and family gathered at Jennie and Frank’s home to celebrate Olivia’s 1st birthday.

Here are a few photos of the festivities:




Thank you so much for allowing us to share in your special day, Olivia! Happy Birthday to you!

“If you’re serious about photography, Carolyn, we need to move to New York City”…

And with that, we packed our belongings and drove across the country from San Francisco to Brooklyn back in 2007.

Now, almost 5 years later, I am so excited and proud to announce the launch of my new website carolynclementphotography.com. Over the past several years, I have been given incredible opportunities: From those who hired me without experience; who gave me internships when the competition was so stiff; to my peers who allowed me to fetch coffee and sweep floors for them for the chance to discover new lighting techniques. I thank you all on a professional and personal level for helping me achieve this milestone.

It hasn’t always been easy; I’ve worked my butt off to get to this point. But what I’ve discovered is that the time and effort you put into something eventually rewards you, often when you least expect it.

And so, as excited (and anxious) as I am today to be making my work public, I cannot wait to see where I’ll be in another 5 years…
