Sara and Doug were married a few years ago in Center City and I loved photographing their beautiful wedding at the Downtown Club. Four years later and I was thrilled to hear that they were expecting a baby girl and wanted me to photograph her newborn session. Baby Edison was such a tiny peanut, with the greatest bow collection I've ever seen and her mom's old school baby Nike high tops to grow into. Sara and Doug, enjoy your sweet, tiny girl and welcome to the beautiful world of parenthood.
Grayson's nursery is such a sanctuary; light, bright and shades of pink. She was calm and snuggly and I loved photographing her smooshy face and thick black hair. She wasn't bothered at all by her two wild brothers who lovingly held and hugged her and jumped on the bed while she slept. She was so longed for and is so loved, she is the perfect addition to this family and dare I say, the last piece of the puzzle. I can't wait to watch her grow and change, but please, keep all of that beautiful hair.
Charlie's parents signed her up for one of my favorite projects, a baby's first year package. I have always loved photographing newborns but watching them grow over the course of the year is just so fun to witness and capture. Watching couples grow in their parenting journey is also a pretty neat thing to see. Dan and Toni have a bundle of pure joy and happiness in little Charlie and ironically, they realize how lucky they are and what an easy baby she is! She was sweet and smiley for the entire session and even as the temperatures dropped when the sun went down, she was happy to show off her all-star baby legs and toes for a few photographs. I can't wait to see what the next six months brings. See you in the Fall, sweet Charlie.
I met this beautiful little girl when she was only days old. It's amazing how quickly I've forgotten how fresh, new and fragile new babies look now that my own are not newborns anymore. I love photographing new babies and especially the relationships between them and their siblings and parents. The images below of the entire family are my favorite. I bet these sisters will be best friends one day.
I traveled to Quakertown earlier this month to photograph sweet little Reese. I always tell my clients that newborn sessions can take longer than other sessions because we have to account for time to soothe and feed the babies when they need it. Well, Reese just didn't need it. She was so agreeable from start to finish and made my job so easy. There were lots of little yawns, sneezes and even a few grins. I hope my former tennis teammate, Jan, and her husband, Mike, are pleased with these :) It was so great to connect with you guys and thank you for inviting me into your home to capture such a special time!
