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.

I love the name Lena LaRue (LaRue is grandmother’s name).

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.

All those cliches, those things you hear about having a baby and motherhood – all of them are true. And all of them are the most beautiful things you will ever experience.

It is hard to believe that it was only 8 months ago that I was contacted by Colleen and Karl about their wedding and I have since gotten to follow along on the most exciting moments: from their engagement session to their beautiful wintery Bellevue wedding to now, Colleen’s maternity session.I went back to their beautiful home in Bryn Mawr. This was 10 days before baby was due. Colleen was still working, saying that it had been an incredibly easy pregnancy – no swelling, fatigue, actual maternity clothes, or even cravings. She credits this to Belly Pilates and looks incredible! How do I get so lucky with these hot mommas?!I was so excited ...

MontCo Maternity Photographer | Norristown | Jayme
You can try to say that you are a super-nerd or an uber geek or whatever but I’d have trouble believing you after meeting Jayme and David.  Their maternity session guest starred Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th.  How many of you can say that?! I don’t even know where to begin with these two.  How about Dave’s initial inquiry.  It went something like this: We're into horror movies (Exorcist is best movie ever), things blowing up (we watch Die Hard each Christmas, cuz it's a damn good Christmas movie), whiskey (not for my wife right now), listening to loud metal, and falling asleep while getting tattoos because dammit that needle is ...
