Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Bailey

Family

Bailey Ann arrived precisely on her due date with a FULL head of hair (maybe there’s something to that old wives’ tale because Courtney had heartburn through pregnancy).  She has gorgeous flowing locks and there’s no sign that they’re going away.

I got to see her when she was about 2 weeks old and cooing, purring, and squeaking up a storm, even in her sleep.

She may have daddy’s nose and mouth but Bailey’s eyes locked on to mom, Courtney, throughout the shoot.

This silk purse is the same one that Courtney took down the aisle on her wedding day.  The lace came from her own mother’s wedding gown.  That’s three generations and a great, big smile right there.

Bailey is Courtney’s first baby but she is so completely maternal in a way that makes her seem like she’s been doing this forever.  Maybe it was the years of babysitting but she was completely comfortable and easy from the moment she walked in the door of the studio.

Bailey’s first name comes from Ryan’s soccer fandom (Gareth Bale) and both mothers’ middle names (Ann).

It was such a thrill to play with Courtney’s wee one after knowing her through grade school and then photographing her engagement session and wedding.  Following along with her growing family is going to be so much fun!

The day started out grey and drizzly and, while it's not ideal weather for a photoshoot, I was looking forward to seeing Charlie in some boots for some fun puddle action. As fate would have it, the sky opened up as soon as I met with Tim and Charlie for some fantastic sunny skies.And since it had just rained, we got some great puddle jumping action!And sometimes you just need to take that tiny path into the sunlight and smell the flowers.Really? Can something be this cute?We were apparently p ...

Philadelphia Family Photographer | Magnus
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 ...
