Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Mt. Airy | Charlie

Family

Remember the Wombat’s maternity session from last week?  Here’s the result!

The Wombat was a little boy – Charles Franklin.  He was due around Christmas and made it into the world on December 30th, just in time to ring in the new year with the family.

I got my hands on his wee hands about two weeks later at their home in Mt. Airy (w00t!).

Strangely, but perhaps not surprisingly, Carrie was agile and ready to get back to rowing ASAP.  I’m just going to say that she definitely didn’t have that baby.  My guess is a surrogate and a basketball.  I’m not judging but it would be great if she’d be honest with us so the rest of the new moms don’t feel awful about still being slugs 11 days (or months, in my case) later.

Charlie was an adorable little muffin.  A bright eyed, fluffy haired, awake little muffin.

Matt paced up and down the stairs and made laps around the living room umpteen times in an attempt to get Charlie to close those peepers.

Two hours later and we were finally there.

Becky and Josh’s newborn session was held on a rainy day in their Fishtown home.  The baby was less than two weeks old.  When I arrived, Becky bounded down the stairs to greet me.  I thought I must have been in the wrong house.  She moved around with complete ease.  (A total jerk, I know!) The windowlight was perfection that day.  Soft light fell on this brand new family and I could not get enough! Josh and Becky thought they were having a boy for sure.  Everyone thought so.  The way she carried the baby, that she didn’t lose any of her good looks, cravings, etc.  All signs pointed to boy. And then she arrived.  Harper Vale. ...

Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Sheila
While my job ranks waaay up there for best in the world, there might be one or two that beat it.  I can only imagine the magic that comes from being a midwife like Sheila.  The relationships made and the end result, a larger family, must be incredible to witness. I photographed Sheila and Sanjay’s engagement session and weddings (yes, plural) a few years back and I was overjoyed to hear that they were expecting a little “Shejay” this spring.  It was fabulous reconnecting with them and peppering her with questions about what it’s like to be on this side of the belly. We shot their maternity session at their home in Queen Village, ...
