Embracing the Chaos - Family Newborn Session

A few years back, Jodi & Ryan contacted me to book a maternity and newborn photo package, and I absolutely loved working with them. One of my favorites from their new baby session got some love from Lemonade and Lenses, taking first place in their International Image Contest.  When they emailed to let me know that Erin was going to be a big sister, I was thrilled for them and was looking forward to this session for months! 

So often, people contact me worried about how their toddler (or older kiddo) will act during the family session once their new baby arrives.  And as a mom of two of my own, I understand the fear, but trust me when I say that when it comes to a lifestyle newborn session, there really isn't a reason to worry!  My favorite part of new baby sessions with siblings is playing with the older children, winning them over a bit, and capturing the essence of what having multiple kids is all about.  Because let's face it -- It is definitely NOT about everyone sitting perfectly for photos.  It's about running and jumping and playing and sometimes being too rough, and sometimes being really gentle, and snuggling and laughing and comforting.  And embracing the chaos that will become your new normal.  The chaos that you will surely miss one day.  

Thank you so much to the O'Shea family for trusting me to document this irreplaceable time ...

New Baby Zoe - Philadelphia Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

It always helps when couples are naturally snuggly together, and this was definitely one of those times.  Stephanie and Dan are so perfectly matched and in love -- in fact, during our session they told me all about how they met and how awesome their wedding was.  I even got to glimpse at the gorgeous photos that their wedding photographer Heather DiPiazza took on their special day, and they were all smiles while reliving the memories.  When you take all of that goodness and add an adorable new baby in to the mix, it's bound to be a great session. Zoe is just the sweetest little love bug in Philadelphia, and I'm sure she'll enjoy looking at these photos when she's all grown up, and she can really appreciate how her parents held her so close to their hearts ....

Baby Evangeline - Philadelphia Newborn Photographer

As soon as I started talking to Stephanie on the phone during our consultation, I knew that I would love working with her. She's funny and warm and has such a peaceful presence about her ... and she's a total natural at this whole mama thing!  Her unassuming beauty and obvious love for her sweet little family made for such a fun session filled with light, laughter, and connection ...

Baby Nathan - Philadelphia Newborn Photo Session

Rachel and Bonnie are the kind of people that you feel like you've known forever.  When I met them at their West Philly home, they were warm and inviting and just so totally focused on being the best moms in the world to their baby boy.  They immediately welcomed me into their space, and made me feel like a member of their family for the morning.  Rachel's parents were visiting that week, and they were so clearly smitten with their new grandson.  I insisted on getting them in the mix and I'm so glad I did!  Baby Nathan is one very lucky boy ...

Baby Beck - Philadelphia Newborn Photographer

My only regret about this session is that I fell so in love with this adorable family and now their time left in Philadelphia is limited!  I hope I'll get to photograph them if they're ever back in town, and I'm so glad that they chose me to do this lifestyle newborn session for them while their baby Beck was still so tiny and new, and doing all the cute things ...
