Family

Little baby Nora made her parents work for her arrival.  There is something called a Nurse’s Curse and Deirdre got it.

I’m not going to get graphic but Nora was late and then caused one hell of a ruckus to get out.  This included running late, water breaking to start the stopwatch, vacuum, forceps, retained placenta, and a couple units of blood for Deirdre.  9+ pound Nora was larger than expected.

Have I mentioned that Deirdre is a labor and delivery nurse?  That just seems unfair.  But then there’s this face!

But here she is with soft, fuzzy hair that, from the back, makes her look a bit like Sonic the Hedgehog.

Nora has no problem staying wide awake and only shut her eyes momentarily while we were together.

Pete is such a good guy.  They were not finding out the sex of the baby before the birth.  Pete ordered necklaces with each initial to be able to give Deirdre the N when the baby was born.

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