Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Carrie

Family

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 the time.  She also told me that she had only recently stopped rowing (a fall into the river didn’t stop her) and was feeling great.  The way she was moving around really made me question the veracity of this “pregnancy.”

I didn’t want to be rude and there was this belly and all but I still don’t know if I believe it.

Without knowing the sex of the baby, it is affectionately referred to as “The Wombat.”  (Womb… Wombat… get it?)

I can tell you that I photographed their little Wombat and will have those pictures for you soon with the gender reveal and their super sweet nursery!

I usually claim that pregnant women should not read books about pregnancy and birth. Their time is too precious. They should, rather, watch the moon and sing to their baby in the womb.

Family Session on Ballena Isle, Alameda
Ack, so much to do, so little time. Isn't that always the case for the holidays? I have quite a few posts to catch up on – including an envy-inducing one from my travels in Cancun this month.But first, I want to share with you a family shoot from last week. This was such a fun family. I mean it. They were up for most anything. I offered them my list of fun San Francisco spots but they realized that there's no place that feels better for them than their own back yard – Ballena Isle in Alameda. They are self proclaimed avid sailors and live right on the marina. I showed up a bit early to take a look around and they were so right. It was ...

You can try to say that you are a super-nerd or an uber geek or whatever but I’d have trouble believing you after meeting Jayme and David.  Their maternity session guest starred Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th.  How many of you can say that?! I don’t even know where to begin with these two.  How about Dave’s initial inquiry.  It went something like this: We're into horror movies (Exorcist is best movie ever), things blowing up (we watch Die Hard each Christmas, cuz it's a damn good Christmas movie), whiskey (not for my wife right now), listening to loud metal, and falling asleep while getting tattoos because dammit that needle is ...
