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.

Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Fishtown | Harper
Becky and Josh’s newborn session was held on a rainy day in their Fishtown home.  The baby was less than two weeks old.  When I arrived, Becky bounded down the stairs to greet me.  I thought I must have been in the wrong house.  She moved around with complete ease.  (A total jerk, I know!) The windowlight was perfection that day.  Soft light fell on this brand new family and I could not get enough! Josh and Becky thought they were having a boy for sure.  Everyone thought so.  The way she carried the baby, that she didn’t lose any of her good looks, cravings, etc.  All signs pointed to boy. And then she arrived.  Harper Vale. ...

Philadelphia Family Photographer | Magnus
I love Jennifer and Mark.  I loved them years ago when I met them for their engagement session at Longwood Gardens and again at their Atrium at the Curtis Center wedding soon after.  They live in London (thanks a lot, Mark!) and have a little man that I’ve been dying to see.  Meet 14 month old, Magnus! It finally, finally happened about a month ago when they came back to the states and this sweet, toddling, little peanut came by for a session with Jennifer’s parents who thankfully live over here. Jenifer and Mark joked that this is their city boy’s first interaction with grass. Magnus is new to the walking game but was ...
