Tiniest Eagles Fan

Tiniest Eagles Fan

I Photographed these two sessions in my Bucks County PA Studio. Their first session was a maternity session where mom and dad brought their Wentzylvania shirts and I had them pose with the same football and bow we would eventually pose their little lady with for her newborn session. Which she was an absolute angel for!

Baby D Newtown PA Newborn Photography

Baby D was such a little sweetheart for his session, he didn't give me any trouble at all. We even got a chance to grab some outdoor shots while he was at my Holland Studio. Outdoor Newborn portraits are really becoming a favorite of mine, with this new green space right out my back door, these shots are even more convenient than ever.

Abington PA Newborn Photography Studio

Before I took  my annual vacation this year I got to meet this little lady at my studio in Feasterville for her newborn session. She did wonderfully, it was the perfect last session before a vacation week. Miss A was a perfect little angel, loved to snuggle, and slept so well. I couldn't get over her beautiful red hair, and chunky cheeks. Here are a few of my Favorite images from her session.

Sweet Baby S | Warminster PA Newborn Photographer

This little lady was sure a sweet little girl, slept like an angel and oh so snugly during her session. (I consider getting to snuggle babies as a major perk of my job.) Mom and Dad brought a few special items along with them for our session, one a hat, the other a chair. The hat was so cute, a little pink and purple bull dog hat, they are all about bull dogs and told me they have rescued a few in their time. They also have a "fur-child", which is a bull dog of course, and she is the princess of the house. I think Baby S is going to give her a run for her money as the princess and they may need to agree to co-rule the house.  The Second item was a rocking chair, it was a very special item to mom because it belonged to her father as a child. Baby S is a little too young to be rocking in a rocking chair just yet, so my pal bear hung out in it while she napped peacefully. Hopefully in the next few months we can show how she grows while reaches new milestones using the rocker and maybe for her first birthday we can get her rocking away just like her grandfather did when he was a little one.

Owls & Tree Stump Slices | Langhorne PA Newborn Photography

July and August have been two busy months for Maternity and newborn sessions. I hung out with mom and dad in July for their Maternity session, August brought my chance to hang out with this little lady at the studio for a few hours. The theme of her nursery is Owls so mom brought along an owl hat to grab some shots in for hanging in her bedroom and we got a ton. Mom and dad also brought something else along, now I have posed newborns in and on a number of crazy things in my years as a photographer, but this was a first. When mom told me about the "slab", as we started referring to it, I didn't exactly understand what she was talking about. Well, as it turns out, I had it all wrong in my head, the "slab" was just that, a Slab of wood cut from a tree and used as the cake stand at their wedding. Once I saw it I totally got what she was saying, and really wasn't aware of a term for a flat piece of wood cut from a tree, so slab fit perfectly. I love the idea that it was used as their cake stand and now their little baby girl was napping on it. I've encouraged mom to bring it back for little Ms. R's 6 month milestone session this winter, I think it would be a great piece to show how much she grows.

Warminster PA Maternity and Newborn Photographer

Very rarely do I get the chance to say that mother nature is really on my side, especially in the summer months. Often my summer sunset sessions are threatened by crazy thunderstorms, which we get so very often and randomly this time of year. Now, when a client has requested portraits in a large open field, the chance of a severe thunderstorm makes me a bit nervous, as we generally are the tallest things in the field at the top of the hill. This Maternity session was up in the air, up until about an hour before, when the weather service cleared the chance of a severe storm. I was so relieved that we didn't have to postpone till the following Saturday, and at the time little did I know their little lady was going to be making her big debut a bit earlier than originally expected. So Mother Nature really was on our side that day, because if we would have postponed they never would of gotten their maternity session. Also less than a week later the township mowed down the tall grass in the fields and made them into hay bales, I never see that coming! The Friday after we photographed the maternity session little Miss E arrived. This little lady is also a member of our studio Baby plan, so you will be seeing a lot more of her over the next year. This may be the first time that I get to share both a maternity and a newborn session in the same blog post with you. I hope you enjoy!

How I've Recently Failed | Yardley Newborn Photographer

So I have to admit I've had a huge FAIL Happen recently. I became a victim of letting life happen to me and quickly loosing track of time. Almost weekly parents tell me how they didn't believe that the first year of their child's life goes by too fast until it's gone and they are now planning a Cake smash with me. I woke up the other day and realized it's APRIL!

Yeah I know my phone tells me daily, conveniently on the screen I unlock about a million times a day, but really how many of us actually pay attention to that. The last few months I've just been floating through life and letting it happen instead of making things happen and celebrating the everyday. I've fallen behind in all aspects of my life. I've lost touch with friends, in fact I still have Christmas presents hanging around I never shipped out (guess I should get on that).  I've had to scramble to get projects done because all the sudden the deadline is on my door step faster then I thought two weeks could ever go by. I've seen home projects fall by the wayside. Oh and forget about that scrapbook I started on New Years Day, that just sits. There are also a few crochet projects that are sitting on the shelf gathering dust too.

Yet in the midst of all this, I'm always on the go. I always have something to do. Are they always the things that are most important to me? Eh. Probably not, but that's life. That is how it works. We become all consumed with the trivial little things, like trips to the mechanic's, or adding up the year's receipts and we miss out.

We miss out on all the great things in life.

Mainly I'm writing this post because I realized that my sweet niece is now 2 Months old. At the same time I'm realizing I never shared more than a few of her newborn portraits and I've already taken more portraits of her for Easter. So here is a giant Post of Alyssa and a Promise to myself to take life by the horns and direct it where I want to go, instead of waiting for things to happen to me.

Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.- Dr. Suess

Yeah. See the days that I always choose for picture day also seem to coincide with Alyssa's Diva days. Her first Newborn session was, well to put it nicely, a challenge. They brought her back a week later JUST to do the tire poses and she was a perfect angel. I got a ton of shots of her. The Day that I chose for her Easter session, just happened to be the day she was laughing in the face of the sandman and missed her morning nap. I don't know if it was that she was tired or really hated the dress I picked up for her but she gave me some interesting expressions. I've never had a little one be so uninterested in the funny noises and faces I'm making at them. Normally these would not be photos that I would even share but her tiny little faces are pretty funny when looked at all together.   My Favorite dress image has to be the close up face in the center of the next collage, she looks really unimpressed with me. (I think I may print and frame that one just to keep me grounded day to day.) We Finally coaxed a few grins out of her once we put her in her "casual" outfit.  Also Please note that I feel the final image in this post should be captioned "Really guys? Bunny ears?"

Little Penn State Fan { Southampton PA Newborn Photographer }

Today I'm sharing another adorable, sweet, tiny little newborn. This isn't just any adorable, sweet, tiny newborn, oh no, he is already a sports fan.  His Dad arrived with all kind of great props for Little E's session.  I love including family heirlooms and other personal items into my newborn sessions, and I do pretty often, but it's a rarity to have someone arrive with a signed Penn State Football helmet. Even more rare, the fact that it is signed by the one and only Joe Paterno.  How cool is that? Dad also brought along all kinds of golf accessories.  I was really excited for the golf items and getting to incorporate them. I've done Baseball, football, heck even drag racing for newborn sessions but golf was a new exciting sports element to try out. I had a blast with Mr. E that day, he was so pleasant and not much of a complainer. He slept like a champ during his visit to the studio. Check him out!

We could all use a little Grace ( Philadelphia Newborn Photographer )

January has been bustling with babies this year. Many of my wonderland families have new additions arriving in 2014, and I'm so excited to meet them all.  This is one of those families who has just welcomed their third child, a little lady. I also photographed their younger son, and now middle child, when I was first starting out on my own. I'm so thankful that these families keep coming back to me with all of their milestones. I always say that one of the best parts of being a children's photographer is seeing the kids as they grow. I'm not with them everyday so I'm  always a surprised by all the new talents they have to show off every time they come to have portraits taken. As I said she is the third child and her two big brothers are just bonkers over her already. After her 2 year old brother woke from his nap he hung out and watch the session patiently till it was his turn too.  He was so excited when he got to sit with "baby Gracie" and take a picture. I just love how he said her name it was adorable.

Check out all of Miss Grace's fab accessories, at just 9 days old she was already all decked out in some of the cutest little things.  The Scarves Grace is wrapped in came all the way from the Netherlands just to be used for this session. One of her fabulous aunts lives there and brought them back when she came home to Philly to meet little miss. Mom had brought along quite the assortment of headbands and hair bows already so it was no problem finding something that matched each one of the new scarves. Philadelphia_Newborn_Photographer

Lifestyle Portraits by Wonderland Portrait Boutique { Newtown Baby Photographer }

As many of you know I'm generally a studio or outdoor photographer, well that is about to change. This fall I am adding Lifestyle photography to my offerings. What is lifestyle you may ask?  Well Lifestyle sessions are photographed in your home, they are very relaxed, guided sessions that use your home as the backdrop to your story. There is never too much posing or forcing of smiles, everyone can stay nice and comfortable because they are at home.  Lifestyle sessions are a great opportunity to show off your family's personalities and style. Not only will I be offering these sessions for families but I will also add them for babies and newborns. A newborn lifestyle session will differ from a traditional newborn session in a few ways. For one I will not bring any of my props or blankets with me, everything used would be personal items from your home. Two, your home is the backdrop making these photos much more personal, and reflective of your everyday life. Three, they are relaxed sessions, so there is no need to get too gussied up with the kids in itchy sweaters.

This is a style of photography that I have long admired and adored. For the longest time I just didn't think it was something I was capable of, but thanks to a few friends who encouraged me to just go for it I gave it a try, and I love it.   The Images you will find below are reflective of what a Lifestyle baby session would look like.

Mr. London { Bucks County Newborn Photographer }

Hello Folks!

Meet Mr. London! I'm so Excited to share this session with you, everything about it is just up my alley. London's parents Nick & Jen were absolutely fabulous, so very nice and down to earth. This little fella is their first child, but you'd never know it, they were really good with him for first time parents. The only time they got a little flustered was about the 3rd or 4th time London tinkled on me, I told them it comes with the Job it was no big deal at all. I've had a fun Mustache composite idea up my sleeve for a while and I knew this would be the perfect session to try it out on.  They loved the idea and it came out perfect! They also brought Nick's Guitar to use as a Prop. London gave us a Big Smile when we started using it, I for see another Musician in the family!
