A newborn and his dog | Philadelphia Photography

My dad’s side of the family is large. He is the first of 7 siblings, which makes me the first of 16 grandchildren. My oldest daughter is the first of 9 great grandchildren. I’ve lost count of the full total, but believe me when I say, when we all converge on the beach for our annual summer vacation, it’s quite the village of tents and umbrellas!

Even with all these cousins, I feel very flattered when they ask me to photograph their growing family. Here is Baby N, #9 of the great grandchildren, special appearance by Bailey the baby licker!

The little guy doesn’t know what to make of all the fuss. I love going into homes and finding great light. This window seat was perfect – every photographer’s dream. I look forward to going back as little N hits milestones – this window seat will be getting a lot of attention!
Dog and Family Portrait

You never know how a pet will react to a new baby, or even a stranger. So it was a relief when Bailey didn’t keep me at bay. Plus, when most new parents wouldn’t let the dog near the new baby, the C Family were perfectly relaxed. Bailey loves licking at Baby N, especially his new little ears!

I love these two images. I love peeking over the parents shoulders and the clean, white purity of it.

Okay, the image below, is that not the sweetest smile ever? What is he dreaming about??
Sweet Baby Portrait

I just love shooting newborns. It takes so much more time, but there is just something about it. Maybe it’s being around new parents (Now that I’m an experienced parent 🙂 ).  Maybe it’s the peacefulness of it (from my perspective). Whatever it is, I don’t want to stop. Bring me your babies!
