Family Session in Palo Alto

Family

Last Monday I photographed this beautiful family at their home in Palo Alto. Keith and Mariela are the proud parents of adorable Ethan and Hailey.

I got there a little early and was able to grab some pictures of Keith and Mariela alone while Hailey was still asleep. Not a surprise, but they haven’t had too many pictures of the two of them for about two years now.


We got the whole family outside on this perfect day.


Hailey is a fabulous big sister to little Ethan.


I just love these collections below. Mariela tickling Hailey was just so cute. Those are the most genuine smiles and giggles you will ever see.


And Keith tossing up Ethan was priceless. Total baby bliss.


Ethan and Hailey are just so cute and check out the eyelashes on Ethan. To. Die. For.



And there’s not much cuter than hands and feet. Check out all those fingers!



I think everyone was pooped by the end of the shoot but we had a great time.



Thanks so so much. You guys were awesome!

The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family. ~Thomas Jefferson

Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Bailey
Bailey Ann arrived precisely on her due date with a FULL head of hair (maybe there’s something to that old wives’ tale because Courtney had heartburn through pregnancy).  She has gorgeous flowing locks and there’s no sign that they’re going away. I got to see her when she was about 2 weeks old and cooing, purring, and squeaking up a storm, even in her sleep. She may have daddy’s nose and mouth but Bailey’s eyes locked on to mom, Courtney, throughout the shoot. This silk purse is the same one that Courtney took down the aisle on her wedding day.  The lace came from her own mother's wedding gown.  That's three generations ...

Family Session on Ballena Isle, Alameda
Ack, so much to do, so little time. Isn't that always the case for the holidays? I have quite a few posts to catch up on – including an envy-inducing one from my travels in Cancun this month.But first, I want to share with you a family shoot from last week. This was such a fun family. I mean it. They were up for most anything. I offered them my list of fun San Francisco spots but they realized that there's no place that feels better for them than their own back yard – Ballena Isle in Alameda. They are self proclaimed avid sailors and live right on the marina. I showed up a bit early to take a look around and they were so right. It was ...

Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Carrie
I have been in love with Carrie and Matt for years.  They came to me in 2011 for their engagement session and we’ve been buddies ever since.  I was thrilled to hear that they were pregnant. You know you’ve got good people when they have a dog named ‘Pierogie von Schnitzelhund.’  I mean, come on!  Rogie is a Australian Sheepdog mixed with beagle and maybe pit and she’s sweet as can be with the best ears. The four of us set out for a maternity shoot in Wissahickon Park along the Schuylkill River. Carrie realized she was pregnant when the smell of Matt’s beer made her queasy. Carrie says that she was 35 weeks pregnant at ...
