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!

Family Session in Alamo Square
"The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face." -Jack HandeyI met up with little 2 year old Alessandro and his parents last week for some fun pictures in Alamo Square. Alessandro was fabulous – he was playful, friendly, and even shared his homemade ice cream with me. Check out some of the pictures from our session!Alessandro and Mom shared some very tender moments reading in a big comfy chair by the window. He played with his hair and helped mom turn the pages. I absolutely love little kid features, especially when they're right next to those of a parent. He had adorable little toes and cute little fingers t ...

Family Session on Ballena Isle, Alameda
Ack, so much to do, so little time. Isn't that always the case for the holidays? I have quite a few posts to catch up on – including an envy-inducing one from my travels in Cancun this month.But first, I want to share with you a family shoot from last week. This was such a fun family. I mean it. They were up for most anything. I offered them my list of fun San Francisco spots but they realized that there's no place that feels better for them than their own back yard – Ballena Isle in Alameda. They are self proclaimed avid sailors and live right on the marina. I showed up a bit early to take a look around and they were so right. It was ...
