Family

Little baby Nora made her parents work for her arrival.  There is something called a Nurse’s Curse and Deirdre got it.

I’m not going to get graphic but Nora was late and then caused one hell of a ruckus to get out.  This included running late, water breaking to start the stopwatch, vacuum, forceps, retained placenta, and a couple units of blood for Deirdre.  9+ pound Nora was larger than expected.

Have I mentioned that Deirdre is a labor and delivery nurse?  That just seems unfair.  But then there’s this face!

But here she is with soft, fuzzy hair that, from the back, makes her look a bit like Sonic the Hedgehog.

Nora has no problem staying wide awake and only shut her eyes momentarily while we were together.

Pete is such a good guy.  They were not finding out the sex of the baby before the birth.  Pete ordered necklaces with each initial to be able to give Deirdre the N when the baby was born.

They are adjusting well to the Lug Nut (one of their nicknames for her) and, as expected, keeping things lighthearted in the process.

I love being with them for all of their goofiness and apparent love.  It was great to bring my camera to them again at their home in the halls of Baldwin School where we also did their engagement session.

Nora is one lucky lady and will no doubt grow up in a home with oodles of love and laughter.

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 ...

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 ...
