Montgomery County Newborn Photographer | Harleysville | Lena

Family

Joy tried everything to get this little peanut out: acupuncture, prenatal massage, even a castor oil milkshake… EVERYTHING.

But stubborn little Lena was perfectly happy with life on the inside.

She certainly made Joy work for her big arrival.  At two weeks late and after laboring for 32 hours with no progression, they eventually went for a caesarian section.

Like most c-section moms, it wasn’t exactly how they had hoped she would show up but she’s gorgeous and such a perfect little sprite of a baby.  I arrived to photograph her at one week old at their home in Harleysville.

Sibling cat, Darcy, has welcomed this hairless being with grace.

She was so sweet and easy throughout the session and it’s clear that Joy and Eric are over the moon.  Congratulations on wee Lena!  She is a doll!  Here’s a recreation of one of Joy and Eric’s wedding pictures in front of their beloved VW bus with one (tiny) new addition.

Family Portraits in Woodside
I had a great time with the White family yesterday at the lot of their new home in Woodside.They have a great piece of land for a house that will come to fruition within the next two years. They thought it was a great place for family portraits and it was one of the few occasions that their four children were all in one place at the same time. The siblings are spread out from Atherton to LA to Scotland.On their property there's a wooded area with redwoods and you'd never even know that anyone else is around (with the exception of the occasional tennis match sounds).
