Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Chestnut Hill | Hero

Family

Dearest Hero, you were the best behaved newborn I’ve ever seen.  I hope you are this fabulous to your delightful parents (and brother, Bonecrusher) for the rest of your life.

Hero was so wonderful – she was alert and looking around sweetly when the time called for it.

Hero was a name Preston and Jillian kept coming back to after they first saw it as a character in Much Ado About Nothing years ago.  “Hero” has its origins as a tale in Greek mythology of forbidden love and a Romeo/Juliet tragedy.

You know you’ve got something good going on when a couple has an 8 pound dog named Bonecrusher (Bo, for short).

Jillian crocheted this baby blanket while pregnant.  It’s gorgeous!

I am so thrilled to have met this heart-stealer.  May she grow up to be wise, funny, beautiful, creative, and independent.
