Puppy Love

we kinda love  Philly, The Main LIne & Bucks CO

Hey! We are kinda obsessed with all things newborn, family, & photography related on the Main Line Bucks County & Philadelphia,

So we thought it would be cool to curate all the latest & greatest here at our photography studio.

Oh, yeah. I"m Lara, founder of Ivory Tree, and you'll find me wandering around the studios drinking coffee & most likely barefoot. 

Meet Lara & the ridiculously talented team

Puppy Love

Whether your fur baby is your first baby or your only baby, we know they are family. They crawl into your heart, they protect your home, and are amazing snugglers. We always get the question, “Can I bring my dog to the studio?” And the answer is yes 1,000 times over! We love hosting four legged family members – and they always add a fun element to family sessions.

One of our favorite puppy sessions includes our client, Ginny, with her two German Shepherds. This beautiful session captured Nittany (a Penn Stater!) and Hyperbole’s adorable personalities, and Ginny is proudly sharing her photos with family and friends with an album and reclaimed wood canvas.

Nittany and Hyperbole are both rescues and are the goofiest dogs around. They have so much fun and when they play, they play hard. Their play ethic makes them favorites at their daycare. Ginny, Nittany and Hyperbole also foster German Shepherds for her local rescue organization.  ‘They are very aware when a dog has a physical ailment or has been in a bad situation. They gradually pull a dog out of its shell until it wants to romp and play with them. I am so proud of them each time that happens.’ says Ginny.

Come visit us and bring your pets! We love all types of families and know that while not all members walk on two legs, they are loved just as much!

About the Author

Lara Aman Mattey

Founder I Owner I Ivory Tree

Lara is the coolest person alive, according to her husband, Nick, & two little ladies, Caitie (10) & Lorelai (9). But she thinks her time is limited on that statement as they continue to grow older. Lara comes from a large family, with whom she is still very close with and you’ll often see shared through the blog and on social media. She went to Penn State (We Are…) where she met Nick, who’s always in a baseball hat (still, yes as a fully functioning adult). Ivory Tree's very own photographer, Marcy shot her newborn photography sessions & Lara was hooked! Lara is not a photographer, super weird, we know. But lives for the experience, creative direction, and meeting all the cool folks who come through the Ivory Tree Portraits studio!

Follow along as she shares studio antics, personal antidotes, & fun stuff going on in the community.
