Main Line Maternity Photographer | Radnor, PA | Kate + Peter


I photographed Kate and Peter’s maternity session before I left for Italy.  I desperately wanted to share their awesome images but completely understood that they wanted to wait until after little baby E came into the world to share their great, big news.

This is Kate’s bear, an indulgent gift from her father that she demanded as a child.  It was the right choice.

Just 36 minutes after his due date, Jackson Robert came into the world at a sizable 10lb 4oz.  This is pretty awesome because no one had to share a birthday (Kate’s was 3 days before, Peter’s 7) or an anniversary (6 days prior).  Not long before, I got to spend time with the excited parents at their home in Radnor as they counted down the days to find out what kind of little nugget they would get.

Peter insisted we get pictures that played on the lighter side of expectant parents.

I love this series.  Babar was one of Peter’s favorite books as a kid.

Tinkerbell was understandably curious as we spent time in this room that seemed to keep crowding with more and more items.  Kate had the most perfect preganant belly I’ve ever seen.  It was just a perfectly round, smooth belly with no stretch mark in sight and an adorable little outie.  If we could all be so lucky!

Somehow this superwoman had been working out 3x a week during pregnancy with pregnancy yoga and interval training.  I suppose that’s no surprise since she’s always been athletic.  Her sport of choice is rowing; Peter’s is golf.  I’m curious to see which way Jackson goes.

It was great to play with this pair before they became three but I honestly can’t wait to meet the new man of the house!

Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Sheila
While my job ranks waaay up there for best in the world, there might be one or two that beat it.  I can only imagine the magic that comes from being a midwife like Sheila.  The relationships made and the end result, a larger family, must be incredible to witness. I photographed Sheila and Sanjay’s engagement session and weddings (yes, plural) a few years back and I was overjoyed to hear that they were expecting a little “Shejay” this spring.  It was fabulous reconnecting with them and peppering her with questions about what it’s like to be on this side of the belly. We shot their maternity session at their home in Queen Village, ...

Delco Newborn Photographer | Media Home | Mara
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 s ...
Pet Photographer | Norristown, PA | Ruffian + Oscar
These are some of the sweetest faces you will see. Meet Ruffian and Oscar. They are a crazy and adorable mix of pug, German shepherd, beagle, and Jack Russell (go figure!). I have such a great time with dog photography sessions because I get to roll around on the ground, make strange noises, and carry a squeaky toy. I have it pretty good! I photographed these littermates on their fourth birthday in their beautiful backyard in Norristown.Take a look at these cuties!She, Ruffian (named after the champion equestrian), is the CEO of the pair.Oscar is the baby and they both manage to get into plenty of trouble and have warmed the hearts of th ...
