Family

Joy tried everything to get this little peanut out: acupuncture, prenatal massage, even a castor oil milkshake… EVERYTHING.

But stubborn little Lena was perfectly happy with life on the inside.

She certainly made Joy work for her big arrival.  At two weeks late and after laboring for 32 hours with no progression, they eventually went for a caesarian section.

Like most c-section moms, it wasn’t exactly how they had hoped she would show up but she’s gorgeous and such a perfect little sprite of a baby.  I arrived to photograph her at one week old at their home in Harleysville.

Sibling cat, Darcy, has welcomed this hairless being with grace.

I love the name Lena LaRue (LaRue is grandmother’s name).

She was so sweet and easy throughout the session and it’s clear that Joy and Eric are over the moon.  Congratulations on wee Lena!  She is a doll!  Here’s a recreation of one of Joy and Eric’s wedding pictures in front of their beloved VW bus with one (tiny) new addition.

All those cliches, those things you hear about having a baby and motherhood – all of them are true. And all of them are the most beautiful things you will ever experience.

the Marshalls: a Family session at Haverford College
Two Sundays ago I met up with the Marshall family at Haverford College for a photoshoot. We had Sarah and Brad and their three children: Caitlin (14), Adam (4), and Amelia (2.5). They had won the session at an auction in February at the Gladwyne Montessori School, where Adam is a student. Amelia's sweet little springtime outfit was handmade by one of Brad's realtives (I think it was his mother…).We missed out on the sunny weather that we saw a few days prior but the overcast skies made for perfect soft lighting at the gorgeous school grounds.We started out around the pond and the old weathered shack right there.I love Adam's expression and ...
