Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Sheila

While my job ranks waaay up there for best in the world, there might be one or two that beat it.  I can only imagine the magic that comes from being a midwife like Sheila.  The relationships made and the end result, a larger family, must be incredible to witness.

I photographed Sheila and Sanjay’s engagement session and weddings (yes, plural) a few years back and I was overjoyed to hear that they were expecting a little “Shejay” this spring.  It was fabulous reconnecting with them and peppering her with questions about what it’s like to be on this side of the belly.

We shot their maternity session at their home in Queen Village, where they’re planning a home birth.

Sheila’s friends made birth flags with encouraging words and phrases to inspire Sheila through the process.

Sheila looked fantastic.  I suppose that’s no surprise as she’s also a Pilates instructor.  She was about a week from her due date when we went out but she was feeling great.

I’m 99% sure Nicole is a legit angel.  She has given of herself more than you can imagine and I am forever grateful for her help these last few months since I’ve had Asher.  She has a little one just a few days older, sweet Harper.  We decided to celebrate Harper’s 6 month birthday with a family photoshoot at their home in Royersford.

Meet Maggie.  Maggie is the one week old little peanut of Betsy and Steve.  They graciously let me come over and spend time with her last week. When Betsy first told me about the schedule they have of waking her every couple hours during the day, I thought she was a little crazy.  Then I realized that this kid really has mixed up day and night.  She wanted to sleep the entire time I was there.  The only time she made a peep was when we were poking at her to keep her from going over her allotted daytime nap. Maggie was born 1 week late.  Betsy’s sister had come to town with the mission to walk this baby out.  They planned a sight ...
