Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Chestnut Hill | Hero
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.
And she snoozed peacefully and let me squish her up when we needed her drowsy. We shot their newborn session at their home in Chestnut Hill.
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!
And this blanket was Jillian’s when she was a baby. I loved that we had Jillian’s mother with us for the session.
I am so thrilled to have met this heart-stealer. May she grow up to be wise, funny, beautiful, creative, and independent.
With every newborn baby a little sun rises. ~Irmgard Erath
