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!

The light was luscious and the weather was just right!Bella is a 1.5 year old beagle who loves her stuffed raccoon, rolling around in anything, sniffing anything, but will (amazingly, I think) come when called even when off leash. She’s a petite little thing for a beagle but has gorgeous big, brown eyes and the sweetest little face.We played and ran around with her parents, Lisa and Chris, who have known each other since 9th grade but lost touch only to reconnected about 2 y ...

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 ...

Philadelphia newborn photographer | Chestnut Hill | Deirdre
Little Deirdre Quinn made a fashionably late grand entrance to the world only one day after her due date.  She arrived with a surprise, namely that she was a she.  Everyone was absolutely convinced that Moira and Brett’s wee one would be a boy. But after putting mom and dad (especially mom) through some work, she arrived a perfect and beautiful 8lbs. 3 oz. I met up with the whole family just a few short weeks after Moira’s maternity session at their home in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia. I learned that D is a snorter.  Sure, she coos gurgles but she is a snorter.  She grunted, snorted, and snored her way through our se ...
