New Jersey Newborn Photographer | Carter

Family

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.

I adore this one of the three of them in the nursery.

As if that wasn’t enough, I insisted Greg put on his Batman costume and make this a family thing! Janene just rolled her eyes at her boys.

But really, this Santa Baby at just days old had grins big enough to make any heart grow three sizes.

Remember the Wombat’s maternity session from last week?  Here’s the result! The Wombat was a little boy - Charles Franklin.  He was due around Christmas and made it into the world on December 30th, just in time to ring in the new year with the family. I got my hands on his wee hands about two weeks later at their home in Mt. Airy (w00t!). Strangely, but perhaps not surprisingly, Carrie was agile and ready to get back to rowing ASAP.  I’m just going to say that she definitely didn’t have that baby.  My guess is a surrogate and a basketball.  I’m not judging but it would be great if she’d be honest with us so the rest of the new mo ...
