Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Carter

I love working in the home of a family welcoming a newborn baby.  I especially love to see the dynamic when there are siblings involved.  There is a carefully orchestrated dance that all parents quickly learn in order to keep their new baby safe from their young siblings while also trying not to make the first-born feel displaced.  It is such a delicate time for both children and the balancing act is one you will adopt quickly if you find yourself in the same situation.  In this case, Jackson was the perfect big brother, both interested in and so gentle with his new baby brother.  Carter was so alert for the entire session and endured outfit and location changes really well.  Second children are always so tolerant, it's almost like they come prepared for the fact that the world will revolve mostly, but not only, around them alone.  Enjoy these photos of sweet, tiny Carter.  I bet he is inches longer and pounds heavier by now.  Katie and Ryan, thank you for inviting me into your beautiful home and trusting me with these special moments with Carter!

Red Tricycle Feature

I was so excited to learn that Red Tricycle was interested in using two of my images for an article they wrote about first birthday photo ideas.  They mention ten ideas for photographing your one year old and among the two they selected was a photo of my little Silas at age one (with the silly expression.)   You can view the entire article here: http://redtri.com/bump-baby/must-take-first-birthday-pics/

Project 365 | March Favorites | Bucks County Photographer

I have successfully documented another month here at home.  I am still truly enjoying the process of picking up my camera each day and completely surprised by the fact hat I have not yet missed a day.  I get really excited about new things and ideas and it doesn't always last, but this time I think I am seeing the results of putting in the time and effort to really practice and make new work in a different setting than I am used to, and it has motivated me to keep going and see what else I can "see."  I hope you enjoy these images.  I have loved watching the seasons come to life through this project and when viewed all at once, it can really give a sense of time and change.  You will also see that my children love looking out the window for our resident groundhog.

Doylestown Portrait Photographer - Emily and Ethan and family

I love my repeat clients.  I feel like I say it all the time but I truly love to see my brides and grooms turn into parents and having the opportunity to meet their new little babies is just magical.  I photographed Emily and Ethan's wedding back in 2011 so it has been a few years since I've seen them all, including Emily's wonderful parents, Marjorie and Charles.  I was so excited to meet Milo and Finn, they couldn't have been any cuter, sweeter or more curious.  Ready to explore, we set out in my favorite little park, Hansell Park and captured some new memories for this sweet family.  If you are considering which time of year is best for portraits, these were summer photos and i think they turned out just beautifully!  If you can stand the heat, the summer has some exceptional light and greenery to offer.

Now that I have a 15 month old boy, I know this adorable, mischievous look all too well.  In my house it is usually followed by something terribly naughty, like grabbing a spatula from the kitchen drawer and beelining it to the nearest house plant to dig up all of the potting soil I just re-added.  In this case I think he just took off and ran if I remember correctly.  Not so naughty.

Dirt!  The boys loved this path and they were completely lost in the  moment digging around and muddying themselves up a bit.

This was my favorite spot with the tree and the beautiful sunlight coming through.  I love all of the images we got in this particular spot but this was just a sweet moment between a dad and his son.

I love this shot of Marjorie and Charles.  Over the few times I had met them, their relationship struck me as being so quiet, nurturing and loving.  They seemed to have a deep understanding of one another.  It was beautiful to witness.
