Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Jack

Family

It is always pretty great spending a few hours with a newborn.  The parents are seeing stars, both from the overwhelming “whoa” of now having this little creature that is all theirs and the mind-numbing lack of sleep.

Jeff and Vanessa brought me little Jack.  At just 8 days old, he was completely attentive to his mommy.  He even cracked a smile or two for us.

With time, we got ourselves a sweet, sleepy baby who just curled up for us.

His teeny baby details were beyond adorable.

Tell me this swirl of hair isn’t swoon-worthy.

Vanessa and Jeff will eventually leave the Northeast for homebase back in Texas.  Until then, you can expect to see this sweet face a few more times as he eventually gets too big to fit entirely in daddy’s arms.

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

Family Session on Ballena Isle, Alameda
Ack, so much to do, so little time. Isn't that always the case for the holidays? I have quite a few posts to catch up on – including an envy-inducing one from my travels in Cancun this month.But first, I want to share with you a family shoot from last week. This was such a fun family. I mean it. They were up for most anything. I offered them my list of fun San Francisco spots but they realized that there's no place that feels better for them than their own back yard – Ballena Isle in Alameda. They are self proclaimed avid sailors and live right on the marina. I showed up a bit early to take a look around and they were so right. It was ...

Philadelphia Maternity Photographer | Wissahickon Park | Christie
Christie and Colin needed some pictures with their belly and city before moving back to North Carolina.  They grabbed their 12 year old St. Bernard, Daphne, and showed me a glorious part of the Wissahickon that I had never seen before.  (I’ve tried to find it again and can’t!) Christie got the look down 100%.  The textures and colors were perfection for the turning leaves and organic surroundings.  The faux (?) fur, knee high boots, dangly necklaces, and tight army green dress looked like something put together by some fashion blogger, not a nurse!  So natural and chic! They wanted this area memorialized for pictures as a walk t ...

newborn baby photo session in Fishtown with parents at window
Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Fishtown | Harper
Becky and Josh’s newborn session was held on a rainy day in their Fishtown home.  The baby was less than two weeks old.  When I arrived, Becky bounded down the stairs to greet me.  I thought I must have been in the wrong house.  She moved around with complete ease.  (A total jerk, I know!) The windowlight was perfection that day.  Soft light fell on this brand new family and I could not get enough! Josh and Becky thought they were having a boy for sure.  Everyone thought so.  The way she carried the baby, that she didn’t lose any of her good looks, cravings, etc.  All signs pointed to boy. And then she arrived.  Harper Vale. ...
