Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Jack

Family

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.

Jeff and Vanessa brought me little Jack.  At just 8 days old, he was completely attentive to his mommy.  He even cracked a smile or two for us.

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 then, you can expect to see this sweet face a few more times as he eventually gets too big to fit entirely in daddy’s arms.

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

In my life before portrait and wedding photography, I was in graduate school for sociology.In undergrad, I didn't know what opportunities there were for sociology majors. I just loved the subject matter and had some incredible professors that I never put much thought into what would happen after graduation. I learned that the main route for sociology majors who are really into sociology is graduate school so you can make more sociologists. This was prefect as I loved being in the classroom and I was pretty good at being a student (graduated magna cum laude and a member of Phi Beta Kappa).My shtick was family and gender roles and social psy ...
