Delaware Newborn Photographer | Wilmington Home | Jackson

Family

I want to cover my walls with this little guy.  Jackson came out as 6lbs, 9oz of 100% adorableness.  That’s not an easy feat since it often takes a little bit for babies to sort out all of that squishing from the previous 40 weeks.

He certainly made Katelin work for it though.  31 hours of labor and she never felt the effects of her epidural due to a medical condition.  31 hours!!!  And then he had the nerve to come out with the umbilical cord around his neck.  His parents are fashionable so it makes sense that he’d be accessorizing at an early age.

Katelin was positive he would be a girl.  James had a hunch he might get a boy.  I was eagerly awaiting their call after taking Katelin’s gorgeous maternity pictures not long before.  I was happily greeted at their Wilmington, DE home by puppy Remy.

Remy had decided to abstain from voicing an opinion either way but made sure she was on hand for any and all excitement.

So there he was, a super sweet baby boy and parents who were absolutely smitten with him.

Jack had a serious case of FOMO during the session.  He was into all of the attention and would. Not. Go. To. Sleep!  We caught a small nap early on but then it was back to the party.

 

Daddy James was clearly over the moon for his little man.  He oozed love for this thing that he had only known for two weeks.  He (correctlly) felt Katelin was a goddess in her own right.

It took  a momentous effort of shushing, rocking, holding, milk, and a little voodoo.

But we finally got him to rest those big, grey peepers.

Total goddess, right?!  And to think she had previously been worried about losing the weight!  Ha!

James designed and created the beautiful grey and white gender-neutral nursery.  The banner welcomed the baby they called “Little Foot” in utero.

Thank you Katelin, James, and Remy for inviting me in and introducing me to such a stinking adorable and sweet baby.  Love you, Jack!

Main Line Family Photographer | Merion Park | Baby Orson
After taking 10 and a half months to make an appearance, baby Orson showed up to some very joyous (and exhausted) parents, Signe and Trevor. Signe and Trevor are the stylishly awesome couple who did a steampunk after session with me last year. He is named for Orson Welles and Orson Scott Card and his parents really dig the fact that the name originated from ‘son of the bear’.At just 9 days old, I got to hang out with “Little O” for a family photography session with mama and papa bear and Signe’s parents at Merion Park.It’s pretty awesome to feel the energy surrounding a newborn.I love these faces!It was so lovely to have Signe’s parents wit ...

New Jersey Newborn Photographer | Mt. Laurel Home | Harper
Little Miss Harper Laine stayed wide awake for practically our entire session at her home in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey last week.  I get it; when literally everything is new and you’re the star of a photoshoot, you want to hang out and see all that there is to see (within 6 inches of your face). This isn’t to say that she was upset.  Not in the least.  Harper was pleasant while I was there, showing off her gorgeous Pinterest-worthy nursery (teepee, DIY flower mobile, the softest color palette) and a few questionable/fashionable headpieces. New mom, Jeanette, looks fabulous whenever I see her.  She’s a total workaholic and this was ...
