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.
It has been a long winter. While I enjoy "busy season" in the Fall, which always spills over into December, the winter months offer a quiet relaxation from shooting for clients. I have the opportunity to photograph what I choose to photograph and work on my own personal work at my leisure. I have particularly enjoyed documenting my own family this past winter and the practice of having my camera out every day, and all the time. But last night gave me a taste of what is to come this Spring and Summer and I could not be more excited. It was so refreshing to get some new faces in front of my camera and Asher couldn't have been better. This kid is completely obsessed with bubbles. Blowing bubbles, splashing in the reflecting pool bubbles and pointing off in the distance saying, "bubbles." He laughed easily and loved getting wet at the end of our session. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed photographing them. It is always a pleasure, if not a little bit of a "pressure" shooting a fellow photographer. Thanks for making it easy, Lindsay!
Rory was born just as the anticipation of the holidays was settling in last Fall. I remember the crisp air in October and the leaves beginning to fall from the trees as I walked to meet them. Siobhan and John had just moved into their new home in Philadelphia, the plastic wrap still on the chandelier. They hadn't even had the opportunity to fill the rooms with furniture yet. I remember thinking that it was such a momentous, exciting and fresh new beginning for them. A brand new house, a brand new baby and a whole new wild world of parenthood about to begin. Rory was a sweetheart, barely crying for me and completely awake and alert in his brand new nursery which was flooded with the most perfect light. I can't imagine him 5 months older already, time surely flies. I hope they are enjoying all of the beautiful moments a new baby brings and I hope you enjoy these photos of their precious boy.
I met baby Addison a few short days after she was born. She had the sweetest little face and she was just so tiny! I love seeing not only babies at this stage but also new parents. Brian and Andrea just adored her and I love capturing that experience of welcoming a new baby girl into their family.
