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).

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 Family Photographer | 1 year | Jack
I have been lucky enough to follow this little man through the past year and it has been extraordinary.  Here is Jack at his newborn session: I visited him six months later and saw this: This time we had Mom and Dad around and we took in some morning rays at Spruce Street Harbor Park in Philadelphia for Jack's 1 year session.  The hammocks were a little unsettling. Jack’s eyes are just as blue and vibrant as ever and, looking back from the beginning, it is wild to see him grow up from a tiny little peanut to a little boy (with so many teeth!). As always, he was a delight.  Even through some colds and road trips, ...
