Philadelphia newborn photographer | Chestnut Hill | Deirdre

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 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).

Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Jack
It is always pretty great spending a few hours with a newborn.  The parents are seeing stars, both from the overwhelming “whoa” of now having this little creature that is all theirs and the mind-numbing lack of sleep.

With time, we got ourselves a sweet, sleepy baby who just curled up for us. His teeny baby details were beyond adorable. Tell me this swirl of hair isn’t swoon-worthy. Vanessa and Jeff will eventually leave the Northeast for homebase back in Texas.  Until ...
