Family

Little Deirdre Quinn made a fashionably late grand entrance to the world only one day after her due date.  She arrived with a surprise, namely that she was a she.  Everyone was absolutely convinced that Moira and Brett’s wee one would be a boy.

But after putting mom and dad (especially mom) through some work, she arrived a perfect and beautiful 8lbs. 3 oz.

I met up with the whole family just a few short weeks after Moira’s maternity session at their home in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia.

I learned that D is a snorter.  Sure, she coos gurgles but she is a snorter.  She grunted, snorted, and snored her way through our session together in the most adorable baby noises you could imagine (think itty bitty pug puppy with pink bows, sweet chubby cheeks, and pink baby toes).

She has been welcomed into an amazing family.  (I should know having shot Moira and Brett’s engagement, Holly Hedge wedding, and maternity.)  I can’t wait to see watch little Deirdre grow into a little lady.

A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.

I am pleased to introduce you to Mr. William Ryan.  He is an adorably round little man who digs strangers and is 100% likely to steal your heart. He came into this world after a fairly “uneventful” labor and delivery.  Those are Kelly’s words.  I can’t imagine any delivery being uneventful but she’s a tough broad so it doesn’t surprise me. He’s much like his dad, Chris.  The two have a close bond and Kelly says that he lights up for him in a way he doesn’t for anyone else.  They both savor their own quiet time and William will pensively relax at a window or in his crib for a while without any qualms. William was about 3 ...

Meet Maggie.  Maggie is the one week old little peanut of Betsy and Steve.  They graciously let me come over and spend time with her last week. When Betsy first told me about the schedule they have of waking her every couple hours during the day, I thought she was a little crazy.  Then I realized that this kid really has mixed up day and night.  She wanted to sleep the entire time I was there.  The only time she made a peep was when we were poking at her to keep her from going over her allotted daytime nap. Maggie was born 1 week late.  Betsy’s sister had come to town with the mission to walk this baby out.  They planned a sight ...
