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.

It is hard to believe that it was only 8 months ago that I was contacted by Colleen and Karl about their wedding and I have since gotten to follow along on the most exciting moments: from their engagement session to their beautiful wintery Bellevue wedding to now, Colleen’s maternity session.I went back to their beautiful home in Bryn Mawr. This was 10 days before baby was due. Colleen was still working, saying that it had been an incredibly easy pregnancy – no swelling, fatigue, actual maternity clothes, or even cravings. She credits this to Belly Pilates and looks incredible! How do I get so lucky with these hot mommas?!I was so excited ...
