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!

Chestnut Hill Maternity session with mom and dad
Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Chestnut Hill | Moira + Brett
Once upon a time I photographed a beautiful couple.  They married in a magical place called Holly Hedge Estate with beautiful flowers and a crowd that danced all night long.  They live in Chestnut Hill with a cranky cat named Piper and I had the fortune of being brought into their lives again.  This time for a bump. Moira and Brett are due sometime this month so I met up with them at their Philly home for some maternity pictures. They don’t know the sex and aren’t telling names (it would help if they chose some!) but most are pretty certain that Moira has a boy in there and has been going by RJB for RickyJimBob. This sw ...

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 ...

[what to wear] family sessions
Stumped, huh? How on earth do you reconcile all of those personalities into pleasing pictures? Well, it's not so hard.Sometime in the 90s it was decided that people should all wear white shirts and jeans or khakis for family pictures. Set yourself free from that idea right now! You don't want to dress all in the same exact outfit and look like the Von Trapp family or a soccer team. You're each unique individuals so wouldn't you want that to come out in your pictures? You want to go for complimentary, not mirror, looks.Here are some tips:* Take the location and season into account. That sundress may be cute as can be but it's just not g ...
