Philadelphia Baby Photographer | Graduate Hospital | Mari

Family

I met Little Miss Mari Leona for her newborn shoot when she was 7 weeks old.  Yes, that’s a little later than usual but Sivan and Ashley had gotten them done with someone else and knew they needed a second lens on this baby stat.  Enter Lindsay!  #humblebrag

Her big eyes were already brown and gorgeous.  She was super active and kicking around.

She has been a great baby.  She sleeps well and Sivan has figured out the optimal gas release actions as Mari’s designated tooter.

I love the name Mari for its twist on the names that belonged to both of their grandmothers: Mary and Maria.  It also works as a name for Ashley’s Finnish heritage and Sivan’s Indian heritage.

She arrived bigger, later, and as a different sex than expected.  They didn’t find out the sex but everyone was convinced Ashley was carrying a boy.  She weighed in at 9lbs 6oz.

In utero she was “Tadpole.”  Now that she’s on the outside, they call her “Duck.”

Despite how it looks, Penny, their 4 year old pooch, is taking the newcomer pretty well.

I was so happy to have been able to come in and photograph sweet Mari and her family.

A new baby is like the beginning of all things-wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.

Delaware Maternity Photographer | Wilmington Home | Katelin
I photographed this Delaware mama twice recently.  Today I’m sharing her maternity session at her home in Wilmington.  It was a surprise gift for hubby, James, who gushed about how gorgeous she was.  And she absolutely was! She had terrible morning sickness for the first 20 weeks but was otherwise doing great!  I met her at 37 weeks and she looked like this.  So freaking hot it's unfair! Her belly button was completely flat with fingers crossed that it wouldn’t pop to an outie. They waited until the birth to find out about the sex of the baby.  Til then, they called the baby “Little Foot.”  She felt like it was a girl.  Ja ...

New Jersey Family Photographer | 1 year | Bailey
If there is ever a question about whether or not you should do a cake smash for your child’s first birthday, the answer is a resounding yes!  But I’ll get to that soon. First, let me show you some RIDICULOUSLY cute pictures of little one year old Bailey and her fabulous parents, Courtney and Ryan.  We met at Strawbridge Park where I first met Ryan for their engagement session about 3.5 years earlier. It was pretty neat to be there with them as a family. Bailey is a doll with such gorgeous eyes and always with a coordinating bow.  Always. Did I forget to mention that Courtney was 7? 8? Months pregnant with Miles at the ...
