I really LOVE when my friends have babies because I can get a few extra newborn snuggles in. And, it's a total bonus when they sleep this well and are this adorable!
Baby Joey was born at almost 10 lbs (Stacy, you are a ROCKSTAR!), 23" long, and with a head full of hair, naturally highlighted! Seriously, he is just too adorable for words. And big brother Tommy is the most cooperative 3 year old ever! Such a proud big brother, best buddies for life!
Every newborn session I am prepared with props and a flow that I follow. However, I never know what the baby entering my door is going to feel like doing on any given day. When sweet Todd came in this morning, half awake, I was a bit worried. But, after a few minutes of snuggling him in the warm room with both the sound machine and baby shusher going, he fell into a deep sleep and ROCKED his session! Todd is one loved little boy, and I know he and big brother Oliver are going to be great buddies! You can already tell how much Oliver adores his new baby. And, mom and dad too! ;)

I am so happy to call this family, friends! I love everything about them and am so thankful they drove hours to come see me this morning for a shoot. They are all beautiful, inside and out, and tons of fun! I hope our kids can grow up close despite the distance between us. I'm also glad both sets of grandparents were involved because when Eli and Owen are older, they will cherish each and every picture they have with their family members.
I LOVE my job! I know I say it at least once a day, but I really do! And getting to snuggle 2 babies at once = heaven! I know mom and dad are so thankful for these 2 adorable nuggets and I am grateful that they trusted me to capture these memories for them. Welcome to the world Nicholas and Michael!
The day I was headed down for vacation with my family, I got a call from a local photog/friend in distraught. The mommy-and-me mini session she was supposed to have that evening got cancelled due to the overcast weather. So, after loading up the car, we booked it to the beach in torrential downpours, and got there before any rain made it. Although it was still overcast and no pretty sunset, I was greeted by these happy, smiling faces and knew it was going to be an awesome session. Just look how beautiful Megan is with her two adorable boys!! And their coordinating, not matchy-matchy, outfits were perfect!
Being in landlocked PA, I have never done a shoot at the beach, but boy am I glad I did. The sand brings out the best in skin tones as there's no green color cast to content with. Hallelujah!! The beach has always been my happy place, and maybe we'll have to start taking extra long vacations just so I can book sessions down there. Anyone up for it next year?! ;)
The other week I traveled to this gorgeous family's home to photograph their newest addition, baby Cruz! He was a dream to photograph and look at all this adorable blonde hair! His nursery was equally adorable, decorated in gray, white, and teal with so many stuffed animals. Thank you McKelvey family for allowing me to capture this special time in your lives and I hope to work with you again in the future!

I am so excited to share with you some images from all the absolutely adorable and well-dressed kids I had in the studio last weekend for spring mini-sessions. I know the parents are anxiously awaiting their images, so I plan on getting galleries out tomorrow or Friday. But, for now, enjoy all the sneak peeks!
I was honored when this little guy's mommy contacted me to do his newborn session. Both of our oldest boys are in the same preschool class together, so of course I was more than happy to snuggle the newest member of the family! I came to their home on Sunday morning when baby Nolan was 4 days old, and he was a dream! He is going to have so much fun growing up with his 2 older brothers, Louie and Ryder.
