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.

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.

Delaware Maternity Photographer | Wilmington Home | Katelin
I photographed this Delaware mama twice recently.  Today I’m sharing her maternity session at her home in Wilmington.  It was a surprise gift for hubby, James, who gushed about how gorgeous she was.  And she absolutely was! She had terrible morning sickness for the first 20 weeks but was otherwise doing great!  I met her at 37 weeks and she looked like this.  So freaking hot it's unfair! Her belly button was completely flat with fingers crossed that it wouldn’t pop to an outie. They waited until the birth to find out about the sex of the baby.  Til then, they called the baby “Little Foot.”  She felt like it was a girl.  Ja ...
