Delaware Newborn Photographer | Wilmington Home | Jackson

Family

I want to cover my walls with this little guy.  Jackson came out as 6lbs, 9oz of 100% adorableness.  That’s not an easy feat since it often takes a little bit for babies to sort out all of that squishing from the previous 40 weeks.

He certainly made Katelin work for it though.  31 hours of labor and she never felt the effects of her epidural due to a medical condition.  31 hours!!!  And then he had the nerve to come out with the umbilical cord around his neck.  His parents are fashionable so it makes sense that he’d be accessorizing at an early age.

Katelin was positive he would be a girl.  James had a hunch he might get a boy.  I was eagerly awaiting their call after taking Katelin’s gorgeous maternity pictures not long before.  I was happily greeted at their Wilmington, DE home by puppy Remy.

Remy had decided to abstain from voicing an opinion either way but made sure she was on hand for any and all excitement.

So there he was, a super sweet baby boy and parents who were absolutely smitten with him.

Jack had a serious case of FOMO during the session.  He was into all of the attention and would. Not. Go. To. Sleep!  We caught a small nap early on but then it was back to the party.

 

Daddy James was clearly over the moon for his little man.  He oozed love for this thing that he had only known for two weeks.  He (correctlly) felt Katelin was a goddess in her own right.

It took  a momentous effort of shushing, rocking, holding, milk, and a little voodoo.

But we finally got him to rest those big, grey peepers.

Total goddess, right?!  And to think she had previously been worried about losing the weight!  Ha!

James designed and created the beautiful grey and white gender-neutral nursery.  The banner welcomed the baby they called “Little Foot” in utero.

Thank you Katelin, James, and Remy for inviting me in and introducing me to such a stinking adorable and sweet baby.  Love you, Jack!

Philadelphia Family Photographer | 1 year | Jack
I have been lucky enough to follow this little man through the past year and it has been extraordinary.  Here is Jack at his newborn session: I visited him six months later and saw this: This time we had Mom and Dad around and we took in some morning rays at Spruce Street Harbor Park in Philadelphia for Jack's 1 year session.  The hammocks were a little unsettling. Jack’s eyes are just as blue and vibrant as ever and, looking back from the beginning, it is wild to see him grow up from a tiny little peanut to a little boy (with so many teeth!). As always, he was a delight.  Even through some colds and road trips, ...

Family Session back in Raliegh, NC
Have I got a treat for you!I went back to Raleigh, North Carolina for a part of the holidays and met up with some of my absolute favorite clients, Katie and Erik. This time there was one more addition to the group: Ava! Last time I saw Ava, she looked like this:We went to Pullen Park for family portraits and it was the first time I actually got to meet her. I can't believe she'll be a year old in March.We took some pictures of everyone and it became pretty clear that she loves her mommy but she's definitely daddy's little girl. Katie is with her all day and Ava gets so excited to see her daddy when he comes home from work. Of course she ...

Delaware Maternity Photographer | Wilmington Home | Katelin
I photographed this Delaware mama twice recently.  Today I’m sharing her maternity session at her home in Wilmington.  It was a surprise gift for hubby, James, who gushed about how gorgeous she was.  And she absolutely was! She had terrible morning sickness for the first 20 weeks but was otherwise doing great!  I met her at 37 weeks and she looked like this.  So freaking hot it's unfair! Her belly button was completely flat with fingers crossed that it wouldn’t pop to an outie. They waited until the birth to find out about the sex of the baby.  Til then, they called the baby “Little Foot.”  She felt like it was a girl.  Ja ...
