Main Line Newborn Photographer | Collins

Family

This little bean had an army of love around her since before she was born. Colleen and Karl didn’t find out until game day that Colleen’s baby bump was a little girl. They debated for a while over names and finally decided on Collins Lillian, Collins being Colleen’s maiden name and Lillian for the feminine first name that her mother was given but never used.

I eagerly met Collins about 11 days after she was born and spent a few hours with her.  I love that this is the same home in Bryn Mawr where I photographed the Colleen and Karl’s engagement session and Colleen’s maternity session.

There were times that the session got a bit overwhelming. It happens.

Of course Colleen looked magnificent and was taking lots of walks outside with the little one.

Collins had already received two pair of Stuart Weitzman baby shoes. That blanket was made by Colleen’s grandmother and given to her when she was 11 for her first born child. Unfortunately her grandmother is no longer around to see this little baby wrapped up in it.

I am so looking forward to watching Collins grow up; I just hope it doesn’t happen too fast!

Babies are soft. Anyone looking at them can see the tender, fragile skin and know it for the rose-leaf softness that invites a finger’s touch. But when you live with them and love them, you feel the softness going inward, the round-cheeked flesh wobbly as custard, the boneless splay of the tiny hands. Their joints are melted rubber, and even when you kiss them hard, in the passion of loving their existence, your lips sink down and seem never to find bone. Holding them against you, they melt and mold, as though they might at any moment flow back into your body.
~ Diana Gabaldon, Dragonfly in Amber

Delaware County Newborn Photographer | Havertown Home | Maggie
Meet Maggie.  Maggie is the one week old little peanut of Betsy and Steve.  They graciously let me come over and spend time with her last week. When Betsy first told me about the schedule they have of waking her every couple hours during the day, I thought she was a little crazy.  Then I realized that this kid really has mixed up day and night.  She wanted to sleep the entire time I was there.  The only time she made a peep was when we were poking at her to keep her from going over her allotted daytime nap. Maggie was born 1 week late.  Betsy’s sister had come to town with the mission to walk this baby out.  They planned a sight ...

Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Christie
Christie and Colin needed some pictures with their belly and city before moving back to North Carolina.  They grabbed their 12 year old St. Bernard, Daphne, and showed me a glorious part of the Wissahickon that I had never seen before.  (I’ve tried to find it again and can’t!) Christie got the look down 100%.  The textures and colors were perfection for the turning leaves and organic surroundings.  The faux (?) fur, knee high boots, dangly necklaces, and tight army green dress looked like something put together by some fashion blogger, not a nurse!  So natural and chic! They wanted this area memorialized for pictures as a walk t ...
