Philadelphia Family Photographer | 1 Year | Clara

Family

Charlotte arrived a few years back.  Now I’m not saying that she’s an obsolete model, but version 2.0 just celebrated her first birthday.  Feature-wise, Charlotte can walk and talk.  Clara, on the other hand, crawls and climbs like it’s her job and offers up the most adorable “Teek Ku” when you give her something.

I may have already set plans in motion for her betrothal to my child.  It seems only right since they were born on the exact same day, only two hours apart.

We played with the whole family at their Graduate Hospital home.  Charlotte kindly let us use her bed for snuggles and tickles.  A family photoshoot is the perfect time for a ticklefest!

And when you have a roofdeck with these kinds of views, it’s just a sin not to use them!

I love the quiet moments of Clara with mama Kelly in the nursery.

It’s pretty impossible to resist a baby in a tutu with a cake (a funfetti giant cupcake cake with multicolored sprinkles, in case you were wondering).  The curiosity, joy, and downright devastation is perfection.

Happy birthday, little Clara.  I look forward to having you as a daughter-in-law someday!

[what to wear] family sessions
Stumped, huh? How on earth do you reconcile all of those personalities into pleasing pictures? Well, it's not so hard.Sometime in the 90s it was decided that people should all wear white shirts and jeans or khakis for family pictures. Set yourself free from that idea right now! You don't want to dress all in the same exact outfit and look like the Von Trapp family or a soccer team. You're each unique individuals so wouldn't you want that to come out in your pictures? You want to go for complimentary, not mirror, looks.Here are some tips:* Take the location and season into account. That sundress may be cute as can be but it's just not g ...
