Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Ciaran

Family

Ciaran Quinn is kinda sorta (but not by much) Irish. That doesn’t really matter. What matters is that I got to meet him mere days after he was born. I arrived at Lindsay and Andrew’s home in Philadelphia (I’m not good enough to know neighborhoods – it was a beautiful street kinda sorta near Penn Treaty Park). I was welcomed by the new parents and their first children: Dudley, a 6 year old Schnauzer mix, and Stella, a 5 year old Collie mix.

It seemed like only yesterday (2009) that I was photographing the two love birds in their recently engaged excitement in LOVE Park. It was fantastic to see them again all grown up with marriage and puppies and house and baby!

I hardly believe it myself but I was there for hours and Ciaran was wide-eyed for pretty much all of it. He was taking everything in.

Don’t you just love this nursery? I could do an entire post on this room alone – including the handmade maps (Neverland, Wonderland, and Land of Oz), whimsical mobile, and fluffy clouds all over the walls.

He was so amazingly alert. Just 10 days old.

It was a lovely day so we took a walk to a local park to see if that would help put him to sleep. And it did.

…Until we got home.

This was truly a lifestyle session for the entire family. I loved it!

Main Line Family Photographer | Merion Park | Baby Orson
After taking 10 and a half months to make an appearance, baby Orson showed up to some very joyous (and exhausted) parents, Signe and Trevor. Signe and Trevor are the stylishly awesome couple who did a steampunk after session with me last year. He is named for Orson Welles and Orson Scott Card and his parents really dig the fact that the name originated from ‘son of the bear’.At just 9 days old, I got to hang out with “Little O” for a family photography session with mama and papa bear and Signe’s parents at Merion Park.It’s pretty awesome to feel the energy surrounding a newborn.I love these faces!It was so lovely to have Signe’s parents wit ...
