Family

Julia’s water broke at a friend’s barbecue.  Not very polite, Julia.  After some laboring, pushing was only 15 minutes and then there was Mara (vs. 2.5 hours with big brother, James).

I met her when she was about 1 month old, sweet as can be.  I have known Matt and Julia for years after photographing their engagement session, Julia’s boudoir, and wedding many years ago.

Matt found the name Mara and they were sold.  Julia might credit The Crown for Mara’s middle name, Elizabeth.  It’s a gorgeous name.

Little Mara makes great snortle sounds and cute baby sighs when she loses a sneeze.

Mara’s nursery was James’ old space but with some new details included a wall that Julia ombre’d when she was 7 months pregnant.

My biggest problem with Julia was the fact that she was wearing real jeans – with a zipper and everything! – just one month after birth.  Who does that?!

This tiny peanut has a rocking mom, hilarious dad, and a doting big brother.  This is one lucky kid!

It is always pretty great spending a few hours with a newborn.  The parents are seeing stars, both from the overwhelming “whoa” of now having this little creature that is all theirs and the mind-numbing lack of sleep. Jeff and Vanessa brought me little Jack.  At just 8 days old, he was completely attentive to his mommy.  He even cracked a smile or two for us. With time, we got ourselves a sweet, sleepy baby who just curled up for us. His teeny baby details were beyond adorable. Tell me this swirl of hair isn’t swoon-worthy. Vanessa and Jeff will eventually leave the Northeast for homebase back in Texas.  Until ...

Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Christie
Christie and Colin needed some pictures with their belly and city before moving back to North Carolina.  They grabbed their 12 year old St. Bernard, Daphne, and showed me a glorious part of the Wissahickon that I had never seen before.  (I’ve tried to find it again and can’t!) Christie got the look down 100%.  The textures and colors were perfection for the turning leaves and organic surroundings.  The faux (?) fur, knee high boots, dangly necklaces, and tight army green dress looked like something put together by some fashion blogger, not a nurse!  So natural and chic! They wanted this area memorialized for pictures as a walk t ...

Philadelphia Baby Photographer | Graduate Hospital | Mari
I met Little Miss Mari Leona for her newborn shoot when she was 7 weeks old.  Yes, that’s a little later than usual but Sivan and Ashley had gotten them done with someone else and knew they needed a second lens on this baby stat.  Enter Lindsay!  #humblebrag Her big eyes were already brown and gorgeous.  She was super active and kicking around. She has been a great baby.  She sleeps well and Sivan has figured out the optimal gas release actions as Mari’s designated tooter. I love the name Mari for its twist on the names that belonged to both of their grandmothers: Mary and Maria.  It also works as a name for Ashley’s F ...
