Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Christie

Family

Christie and Colin needed some pictures with their belly and city before moving back to North Carolina.  They grabbed their 12 year old St. Bernard, Daphne, and showed me a glorious part of the Wissahickon that I had never seen before.  (I’ve tried to find it again and can’t!)

Christie got the look down 100%.  The textures and colors were perfection for the turning leaves and organic surroundings.  The faux (?) fur, knee high boots, dangly necklaces, and tight army green dress looked like something put together by some fashion blogger, not a nurse!  So natural and chic!

They wanted this area memorialized for pictures as a walk they often take with sweet Daphne.

Despite gestational diabetes, Christie is craving all dairy.  She claims sugar free pudding packs are the thing getting her through pregnancy.

The three have been in Philadelphia for 5 years but will be heading down south after the baby arrives to be closer to her family.

Have I mentioned how fabulous this location is?!  Old stone bridges, mossy walls, a pond, crumbling steps, and golden light streaming through.  Ahhhhh…..

Stay tuned for pictures of this little one’s grand entrance!

You can try to say that you are a super-nerd or an uber geek or whatever but I’d have trouble believing you after meeting Jayme and David.  Their maternity session guest starred Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th.  How many of you can say that?! I don’t even know where to begin with these two.  How about Dave’s initial inquiry.  It went something like this: We're into horror movies (Exorcist is best movie ever), things blowing up (we watch Die Hard each Christmas, cuz it's a damn good Christmas movie), whiskey (not for my wife right now), listening to loud metal, and falling asleep while getting tattoos because dammit that needle is ...

Main Line Newborn Photographer | Collins
This little bean had an army of love around her since before she was born. Colleen and Karl didn’t find out until game day that Colleen’s baby bump was a little girl. They debated for a while over names and finally decided on Collins Lillian, Collins being Colleen’s maiden name and Lillian for the feminine first name that her mother was given but never used.I eagerly met Collins about 11 days after she was born and spent a few hours with her.  I love that this is the same home in Bryn Mawr where I photographed the Colleen and Karl's engagement session and Colleen's maternity session.There were times that the session got a bit overwhelm ...

Philadelphia Baby Photographer | Northern Liberties | William
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. William was about 3 ...
