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.

Hellooooo cuteness!I encountered an almost illegal amount of adorable last week when I photographed Charlotte (Charlie) last week at Tyler Arboretum. The day started out grey and drizzly and, while it's not ideal weather for a photoshoot, I was looking forward to seeing Charlie in some boots for some fun puddle action. As fate would have it, the sky opened up as soon as I met with Tim and Charlie for some fantastic sunny skies.And since it had just rained, we got some great puddle jumping action!And sometimes you just need to take that tiny path into the sunlight and smell the flowers.Really?
