New Jersey Newborn Photographer | Mt. Laurel Home | Harper

Family

Little Miss Harper Laine stayed wide awake for practically our entire session at her home in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey last week.  I get it; when literally everything is new and you’re the star of a photoshoot, you want to hang out and see all that there is to see (within 6 inches of your face).

This isn’t to say that she was upset.  Not in the least.  Harper was pleasant while I was there, showing off her gorgeous Pinterest-worthy nursery (teepee, DIY flower mobile, the softest color palette) and a few questionable/fashionable headpieces.

New mom, Jeanette, looks fabulous whenever I see her.  She’s a total workaholic and this was the first time I’ve ever seen her in one place for more than a few minutes. That being said, she’s eager to get back to work and is still coordinating umpteen projects from her nursing chair.

Dad, Dustin, is a proud poppa.  Despite all Jeanette’s pink influence, he has visions of his little girl being an NFL kicker.

Harper was 6 days late and made Jeanette work to see her little “fishface” with back labor.  Overall, she said it wasn’t so bad and she would gladly do it all over again.  Jeanette’s already imaging a future of pillow forts, Disney movies, soccer, and mohawks in the bathtub.

It was on a 12 hour drive to Michigan to visit Dustin’s family that they came up with Harper’s name.  They found out the sex as early as possible and went through all the baby books.

I loved getting to meet 8 day old Harper.  I can’t wait to find out which sports team she’s on in a few years!

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 ...

Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Carrie
I have been in love with Carrie and Matt for years.  They came to me in 2011 for their engagement session and we’ve been buddies ever since.  I was thrilled to hear that they were pregnant. You know you’ve got good people when they have a dog named ‘Pierogie von Schnitzelhund.’  I mean, come on!  Rogie is a Australian Sheepdog mixed with beagle and maybe pit and she’s sweet as can be with the best ears. The four of us set out for a maternity shoot in Wissahickon Park along the Schuylkill River. Carrie realized she was pregnant when the smell of Matt’s beer made her queasy. Carrie says that she was 35 weeks pregnant at ...
