Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Chestnut Hill | Hero

Family

Dearest Hero, you were the best behaved newborn I’ve ever seen.  I hope you are this fabulous to your delightful parents (and brother, Bonecrusher) for the rest of your life.

Hero was so wonderful – she was alert and looking around sweetly when the time called for it.

And she snoozed peacefully and let me squish her up when we needed her drowsy.  We shot their newborn session at their home in Chestnut Hill.

Hero was a name Preston and Jillian kept coming back to after they first saw it as a character in Much Ado About Nothing years ago.  “Hero” has its origins as a tale in Greek mythology of forbidden love and a Romeo/Juliet tragedy.

You know you’ve got something good going on when a couple has an 8 pound dog named Bonecrusher (Bo, for short).

Jillian crocheted this baby blanket while pregnant.  It’s gorgeous!

And this blanket was Jillian’s when she was a baby.  I loved that we had Jillian’s mother with us for the session.

I am so thrilled to have met this heart-stealer.  May she grow up to be wise, funny, beautiful, creative, and independent.

Philadelphia Baby Photographer | Graduate Hospital | Mari
I met Little Miss Mari Leona for her newborn shoot when she was 7 weeks old.  Yes, that’s a little later than usual but Sivan and Ashley had gotten them done with someone else and knew they needed a second lens on this baby stat.  Enter Lindsay!  #humblebrag Her big eyes were already brown and gorgeous.  She was super active and kicking around. She has been a great baby.  She sleeps well and Sivan has figured out the optimal gas release actions as Mari’s designated tooter. I love the name Mari for its twist on the names that belonged to both of their grandmothers: Mary and Maria.  It also works as a name for Ashley’s F ...
