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!

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.

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.

If you were to open up a baby’s head — and I am not for a moment suggesting that you should — you would find nothing but an enormous drool gland. ~Dave Barry

Meet Maggie.  Maggie is the one week old little peanut of Betsy and Steve.  They graciously let me come over and spend time with her last week. When Betsy first told me about the schedule they have of waking her every couple hours during the day, I thought she was a little crazy.  Then I realized that this kid really has mixed up day and night.  She wanted to sleep the entire time I was there.  The only time she made a peep was when we were poking at her to keep her from going over her allotted daytime nap. Maggie was born 1 week late.  Betsy’s sister had come to town with the mission to walk this baby out.  They planned a sight ...
