Lorelai Arrives Early

I was contacted by Lorelai’s mother in January about doing a birth session.  I was over the moon excited to be able capture such a special moment in someone’s life.  Her parents didn’t know whether she was a girl or boy.   They were most excited in capturing the moment of when they found out.  Sadly Lorelai came quick and I arrived about 10 minutes after she.  Most importantly thought she is healthy!  We were able to capture some great shots and moments.  Enjoy!

Meet Miss Delaney Jones

Miss Delaney decided to come into the world early.  She was ready!!  And she just slept through her entire session.  Made life easy for mom and I!  I had a blast working with her and editing her sweet face.  Look at her, how can I not love my job?  Enjoy!!

Such a sweet face!

Working with the little ones can be challenging but I wouldn’t change it!  Seeing the end result is always very exciting.  I am not sure who is more excited to see them, me or the mom!

Love me some baby feet!!

Working with babies is such a rewarding part of the job.  I can hold and snuggle with the new ones and create art for families to treasure for years to come!

Miss Julia Arrives

Julia’s mother and I worked together at a local hospital doing newborn photography.  So when she had her baby I couldn’t resist going over and getting some shots of her to model for me!  This was one of the quickest newborn shoots I have ever done.  We made this happen quick!  She was up for anything and only fussed a little.  Mostly stayed asleep, which is what you want in a newborn shoot.  Check out some of the great shots!

Brantlee Newborn Session

I saw a post that my mother’s cousin had become a grandmother again.  I messaged her that I would love to do some photos of the new little arrival.  She had been wanting to have me do some photos of someone in her family for a little while now.  This was the perfect opportunity, a baby!!  So here are some of the pics from his session.   I managed to work with him in a very tight space and get some cute shots.

He was asleep and then awake and then back to sleep.  Perfect for getting all views of him!

Baby Brayden Comes Early

Brayden decided to make his debut 3 weeks early like his older brother, Brenden.  Mom and I were super excited on photo day and were texting back and forth talking about how much he sleeps.  Well we jinxed ourselves.  This boy didn’t sleep the ENTIRE session.  I was there for 3 hours!  I am so glad I was able to get some great shots regardless.  In the 4 years I photographed the newborns at the hospital I learned how unpredictable they can be and how each one is different and will allow different poses.  I work with what they do and allow.

How amazing are those blue eyes?

Sometimes we get stuck on wanted something in particular and being obsessed on getting “the shot”.  I try for shots and if baby wants no parts of it, I move on and get what baby wants!

Baby Jacqueline Arrives

After doing Meagan’s maternity shoot we kept in constant contact about the delivery.  I was informed of baby Jacqueline’s arrival and we started planning her shoot.  Unfortunately Mommy had a terrible infection and had to be readmitted to the hospital.  Once all that was cleared up we set our date.  I went to Mom Mom’s house where she was staying to recover and get some great help with caring for herself and her baby in her condition.  Her best friend, Beth, who purchased the gift certificate was there.

Capturing her was pretty easy as she just slept through most of it.  I couldn’t believe how she posed for us.  I am happy to share her here with all of you.

We had lots of plans for the little cutie.  Here are some samples of what we did with her.  Enjoy!

Harry & Sam ~ Engagement Session ~ East Berlin, PA

Samantha found me on Facebook and I couldn’t be happier she chose me to capture such a special memory in her life. I traveled on a cold Sunday afternoon in January to meet her so we could have some snowy engagement photos.  She brought her kids, Bear and Goose along!  The dogs were adorable and so well behaved!  The handmade signs she brought added the custom feel to her session.  We trudged through the snow and trees to find the best spots to create the magic!  I can not wait for their big day!
