I absolutely adore squishy babies. The more rolls the better! Six-month-old Baby Scarlett had plenty of sweet squishiness and lots of smiles for me.

I’ve been capturing this growing family for a couple of years now, since mom’s first pregnancy. Scarlett has a big brother who, like most new older siblings, thinks she’s not so bad. We’ll check back with him when she starts getting into his toys!

One of my favorite things about this little one is her rogue hair! That hair would just not stay down. But I’m okay with that. It’s part of her right now so we should capture it. A memory to look back on and smile.

I love the squishiness! Don’t you just want to squeeze her?

The first year is such a big year of changes! I can’t wait to see Miss Scarlett when she turns 1. Until then…

Welcoming a newborn baby girl to the family is extra special – or maybe I’m biased since I have two girls of my own. Either way, a first baby is exciting for everyone! This session started off with an enthusiastic greeting from Murdock, the bulldog who quickly became my buddy.  I love getting pets in the sessions – I’m sure I’ve mentioned that before. Well, they are part of the family after all. Here are some of my favorite images from Baby Lana’s newborn session.


If you are interested in having a newborn portrait session, be sure to book your session while you are pregnant. Newborn sessions are best 5 to 10 days after your baby’s birthday. Take a look at this  newborn session.

The J family was fortunate to have the last colorful outdoor images of the year. The next weekend after our session, a windy storm came through that blew all the color away. And lucky for them, because this session happened at the spur of the moment.

To make the session fun, I sent the kids on a leaf hunt to find the best one. They ended up with more than a handful, some a little crunchier than others, but it lead us to the fence around the large pond which reflects perfect light for a great family portrait. I never get tired of this location – I shot my own kids portraits here too.

I love when families want their pets in the session. They are part of the family so it makes sense! Of course, it adds a whole new level of complication if they aren’t well-behaved pets – but I have yet to really experience that. Mostly, they just need some guidance for looking the right way – preferably at me and not at their owners. I get plenty of shots with the back of their head.

For Fall portraits on the Main Line, this “secret” location is one of my favorites. I love to shoot my own kids here. Hit it at the right time and the light is amazing through the colorful trees.

Portrait sessions with kids are always a bit tricky. You never know how far you can push their patience. This particular day was especially cold and windy – so we were really testing the kids limits. Thankfully all we need is a split second of happy (or not unhappy) faces and no one would ever be the wiser.

How handsome is this guy? The girls are going to be in trouble with this one, especially when they hear his British accent!

Miss Lucy here was very unhappy about our cold and windy situation. A little silliness from mom standing behind me brought the perfect smile.

I love Fall – the beautiful colors, the crisp air, having fires and hot chocolate. It’s just a cozy time of year. I think Fall portraits really convey all of that too!
