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!

I met Little Miss Mari Leona for her newborn shoot when she was 7 weeks old.  Yes, that’s a little later than usual but Sivan and Ashley had gotten them done with someone else and knew they needed a second lens on this baby stat.  Enter Lindsay!  #humblebrag Her big eyes were already brown and gorgeous.  She was super active and kicking around. She has been a great baby.  She sleeps well and Sivan has figured out the optimal gas release actions as Mari’s designated tooter. I love the name Mari for its twist on the names that belonged to both of their grandmothers: Mary and Maria.  It also works as a name for Ashley’s F ...

Becky and Josh’s newborn session was held on a rainy day in their Fishtown home.  The baby was less than two weeks old.  When I arrived, Becky bounded down the stairs to greet me.  I thought I must have been in the wrong house.  She moved around with complete ease.  (A total jerk, I know!) The windowlight was perfection that day.  Soft light fell on this brand new family and I could not get enough! Josh and Becky thought they were having a boy for sure.  Everyone thought so.  The way she carried the baby, that she didn’t lose any of her good looks, cravings, etc.  All signs pointed to boy. And then she arrived.  Harper Vale. ...
