Main Line Maternity Photographer | Radnor, PA | Kate + Peter

Family

I photographed Kate and Peter’s maternity session before I left for Italy.  I desperately wanted to share their awesome images but completely understood that they wanted to wait until after little baby E came into the world to share their great, big news.

This is Kate’s bear, an indulgent gift from her father that she demanded as a child.  It was the right choice.

Just 36 minutes after his due date, Jackson Robert came into the world at a sizable 10lb 4oz.  This is pretty awesome because no one had to share a birthday (Kate’s was 3 days before, Peter’s 7) or an anniversary (6 days prior).  Not long before, I got to spend time with the excited parents at their home in Radnor as they counted down the days to find out what kind of little nugget they would get.

Peter insisted we get pictures that played on the lighter side of expectant parents.

I love this series.  Babar was one of Peter’s favorite books as a kid.

Tinkerbell was understandably curious as we spent time in this room that seemed to keep crowding with more and more items.  Kate had the most perfect preganant belly I’ve ever seen.  It was just a perfectly round, smooth belly with no stretch mark in sight and an adorable little outie.  If we could all be so lucky!

Somehow this superwoman had been working out 3x a week during pregnancy with pregnancy yoga and interval training.  I suppose that’s no surprise since she’s always been athletic.  Her sport of choice is rowing; Peter’s is golf.  I’m curious to see which way Jackson goes.

It was great to play with this pair before they became three but I honestly can’t wait to meet the new man of the house!

Janene and Greg were my couple crush a few years back when I met them for their freaking amazing engagement session and then again for their wedding (the Philly Phanatic was in attendance). I was so excited when I heard they they were pregnant and psyched when I got the news that the little one was born and that I’d be able to photograph him!I got to visit little Carter at just a few days old. He was a sweet, cuddly, and holy-cow-so-smiley bundle of mush. His nursery was decked out in 100 Aker Woods style with Pooh Bears, Piglets, and Tiggers around with a few choice quotes.The joy and awe were palpable.  I think these are the faces ev ...

[what to wear] family sessions
Stumped, huh? How on earth do you reconcile all of those personalities into pleasing pictures? Well, it's not so hard.Sometime in the 90s it was decided that people should all wear white shirts and jeans or khakis for family pictures. Set yourself free from that idea right now! You don't want to dress all in the same exact outfit and look like the Von Trapp family or a soccer team. You're each unique individuals so wouldn't you want that to come out in your pictures? You want to go for complimentary, not mirror, looks.Here are some tips:* Take the location and season into account. That sundress may be cute as can be but it's just not g ...
