My Philly | Community LOVE Awards

Recognizing our neighbors who have championed building community alongside our team.

Philadelphia Family was founded in 2013 with the mission of building community to connect parents raising kids in the city with resources, events, and each other. 


The Philadelphia Family LOVE Awards offer our readers an opportunity to honor the businesses who truly went above and beyond for them each year. We’re so proud to recognize the outstanding businesses that members of our community can TRUST as LOVE Award Winners and Family Favorites.


The following Community Awards are dedicated to recognizing our neighbors who have championed this mission alongside our team.


Wanda Thomas, Philly Family Community Member of the Year






Wanda Thomas is a natural at connecting people. After building her business as a professional Main Line and Philadelphia photographer since 2013, she recently opened Studio on Macallum in Mount Airy. Wanda loves her community and has demonstrated a commitment to supporting small businesses and her children’s school. We are grateful for Wanda’s contributions in our Philly Family Community group on Facebook. We can always count on her to offer encouragement and advice to her fellow local parents. You can get to know Wanda and our group of 4,700+ families at facebook.com/groups/phillyfamilycommunity.







Independence Seaport Museum, Philadelphia Family Business Member of the Year


As one of our first Philadelphia Family Business Members, The Independence Seaport Museum offers incredibly unique experiences to families in the Philadelphia area. Their summer camps offer the special opportunity for kids to navigate the Delaware River, they provide hands-on STEM programs, and they teach us all about the rich history of our region’s waterways. Philadelphia Family Supporting Members receive a special discount on museum tickets!
