Philadelphia Family Photographer | Magnus

Family

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!

Also notable was the constant use of neckerchiefs for the constant stream of drool.  The struggle is real.  They have so many of these they could put him in a new one with every outfit.

I am pleased to introduce you to Mr. William Ryan.  He is an adorably round little man who digs strangers and is 100% likely to steal your heart. He came into this world after a fairly “uneventful” labor and delivery.  Those are Kelly’s words.  I can’t imagine any delivery being uneventful but she’s a tough broad so it doesn’t surprise me. He’s much like his dad, Chris.  The two have a close bond and Kelly says that he lights up for him in a way he doesn’t for anyone else.  They both savor their own quiet time and William will pensively relax at a window or in his crib for a while without any qualms.

Clara is a super special little goober. And not just because she makes faces like this (though it certainly helps!).

Not to toot my own horn, but Jennifer and Mark might have flown in from England to get pictures of wee Magnus by yours truly.  And I'm thrilled they did!
