Philadelphia Baby Photographer | Graduate Hospital | Mari

Family

I met Little Miss Mari Leona for her newborn shoot when she was 7 weeks old.  Yes, that’s a little later than usual but Sivan and Ashley had gotten them done with someone else and knew they needed a second lens on this baby stat.  Enter Lindsay!  #humblebrag

Her big eyes were already brown and gorgeous.  She was super active and kicking around.

She has been a great baby.  She sleeps well and Sivan has figured out the optimal gas release actions as Mari’s designated tooter.

I love the name Mari for its twist on the names that belonged to both of their grandmothers: Mary and Maria.  It also works as a name for Ashley’s Finnish heritage and Sivan’s Indian heritage.

She arrived bigger, later, and as a different sex than expected.  They didn’t find out the sex but everyone was convinced Ashley was carrying a boy.  She weighed in at 9lbs 6oz.

In utero she was “Tadpole.”  Now that she’s on the outside, they call her “Duck.”

Despite how it looks, Penny, their 4 year old pooch, is taking the newcomer pretty well.

I was so happy to have been able to come in and photograph sweet Mari and her family.

A new baby is like the beginning of all things-wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.

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? Can something be this cute?We were apparently p ...
