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.

He came into this world after a fairly “uneventful” labor and delivery.  Those are Kelly’s words.  I can’t imagine any delivery being uneventful but she’s a tough broad so it doesn’t surprise me. He’s much like his dad, Chris.  The two have a close bond and Kelly says that he lights up for him in a way he doesn’t for anyone else.  They both savor their own quiet time and William will pensively relax at a window or in his crib for a while without any qualms. William was about 3 ...

Family Portraits in Woodside
I had a great time with the White family yesterday at the lot of their new home in Woodside.They have a great piece of land for a house that will come to fruition within the next two years. They thought it was a great place for family portraits and it was one of the few occasions that their four children were all in one place at the same time. The siblings are spread out from Atherton to LA to Scotland.On their property there's a wooded area with redwoods and you'd never even know that anyone else is around (with the exception of the occasional tennis match sounds). The nature around was beautiful and the sun was coming through at just the ...
