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.

The joy and awe were palpable.  I think these are the faces every newborn parents make.

With the exception of a very messy mishap early on, Carter was fabulous.

Greg forgave him quickly.

Janene and Greg had the patience to wait until the birth to know the sex of the baby. Greg got the honor of announcing it to Janene after a very long and arduous labor.

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

At the end of the session we figured it couldn’t hurt to put Carter into one last outfit: a tiny Batman onesie complete with cape. You should have seen Greg’s face light up. 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.

Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Ciaran
Ciaran Quinn is kinda sorta (but not by much) Irish. That doesn’t really matter. What matters is that I got to meet him mere days after he was born. I arrived at Lindsay and Andrew’s home in Philadelphia (I’m not good enough to know neighborhoods – it was a beautiful street kinda sorta near Penn Treaty Park). I was welcomed by the new parents and their first children: Dudley, a 6 year old Schnauzer mix, and Stella, a 5 year old Collie mix. It seemed like only yesterday (2009) that I was photographing the two love birds in their recently engaged excitement in LOVE Park. It was fantastic to see them again all grown up with marriage and puppi ...
