Philadelphia newborn photographer | Chestnut Hill | Deirdre

Family

Little Deirdre Quinn made a fashionably late grand entrance to the world only one day after her due date.  She arrived with a surprise, namely that she was a she.  Everyone was absolutely convinced that Moira and Brett’s wee one would be a boy.

But after putting mom and dad (especially mom) through some work, she arrived a perfect and beautiful 8lbs. 3 oz.

I met up with the whole family just a few short weeks after Moira’s maternity session at their home in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia.

I learned that D is a snorter.  Sure, she coos gurgles but she is a snorter.  She grunted, snorted, and snored her way through our session together in the most adorable baby noises you could imagine (think itty bitty pug puppy with pink bows, sweet chubby cheeks, and pink baby toes).

She has been welcomed into an amazing family.  (I should know having shot Moira and Brett’s engagement, Holly Hedge wedding, and maternity.)  I can’t wait to see watch little Deirdre grow into a little lady.

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

Boston Family Photographer | Tess & Co.
Andy, Asher, and I spent last weekend on a blink of a trip to Boston to spend time with Andy’s relatives for a Passover-ish get together.  We drove on Friday night and arrived just after midnight and left again early Sunday.  It wasn’t nearly enough time but we made the most of it. Of course I brought my camera to capture pictures of the tiny cousins.  Tess is 9 months old; Asher is 18 months old.  Asher has had plenty of time in front of my lens and I found that I just couldn’t get enough of the super-cheeked, huge blue-eyed creature with the crazy hair.  Little Tess. I think I witnessed her first experience with maracas.  Sh ...

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, ...
