Philadelphia Family Photographer | Museum of Art | Hudson & Co.

Family

Pamela contacted me to photograph a lovely combination of events.  In the span of one week, her son, Hudson, was turning 11, graduating elementary school, and receiving a visit from his grandfather from Hong Kong.  She spoke of it as, “celebrating a milestone moment in time.”

And it was.  The original plan was to go totally casual but Hudson had picked out a sharp blue and white striped blazer so they started off looking a little extra special together.

There are big things coming up for the family.  Hudson will be going to sleepaway camp for the first time this summer and, later, going to a Minecraft summer camp.  I honestly never knew there was such a thing.

Meanwhile, Pamela is going on a dreamy yoga retreat/vacation to Iceland with a good friend.

Hudson’s birthday surprise was a trip to Chicago.  Pamela told him about it the day before and the three generations set off to the Windy City and dined at the Michelin-rated Alinea.  Hudson had learned about Alinea on TV a few years ago, had researched it, and hadn’t stopped talking about it since.  What an incredible treat!

They are a jet-setting family.  With visits to grandpa in China every year, they also check out Jackson Hole, Miami, and spent two weeks in Italy last year.

Despite being a tween boy, Hudson is sweetly affectionate with his mom.

Those sparkling blue eyes probably get him out of any trouble too.

I loved spending a few hours with them around Waterworks and the Philadelphia Art Museum.  Happy travels!

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 ...

Delaware County Newborn Photographer | Havertown Home | Maggie
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 ...

New Jersey Newborn Photographer | Mt. Laurel Home | Harper
Little Miss Harper Laine stayed wide awake for practically our entire session at her home in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey last week.  I get it; when literally everything is new and you’re the star of a photoshoot, you want to hang out and see all that there is to see (within 6 inches of your face). This isn’t to say that she was upset.  Not in the least.  Harper was pleasant while I was there, showing off her gorgeous Pinterest-worthy nursery (teepee, DIY flower mobile, the softest color palette) and a few questionable/fashionable headpieces. New mom, Jeanette, looks fabulous whenever I see her.  She’s a total workaholic and this was ...
