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!

Remember the Wombat’s maternity session from last week?  Here’s the result! The Wombat was a little boy - Charles Franklin.  He was due around Christmas and made it into the world on December 30th, just in time to ring in the new year with the family. I got my hands on his wee hands about two weeks later at their home in Mt. Airy (w00t!). Strangely, but perhaps not surprisingly, Carrie was agile and ready to get back to rowing ASAP.  I’m just going to say that she definitely didn’t have that baby.  My guess is a surrogate and a basketball.  I’m not judging but it would be great if she’d be honest with us so the rest of the new mo ...
