Baby M. | Philadelphia Newborn Photographer

I loved watching this adoring mom and dad cuddle their sweet baby girl during their in-home Philadelphia newborn session.



Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Baby O

As soon as I stepped into this sweet family’s home, I knew this was going to be a great newborn photo session! From the gorgeously decorated nursery and abundant natural light to the adorable family and their new little man, I was just in love! 🙂 Welcome baby O; you are so loved!








Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Baby A Newborn Session

Here’s another sweet mama friend and her baby from their newborn session in Philadelphia last fall. I just can’t get enough of capturing the sweet snuggles!


Philadelphia Newborn Photographer | Baby L

I got to meet Baby Linus for my first session back from maternity leave and it was so much fun! He was such a snuggly little sweetheart, and big sister E was just a doll, as always! 😉 Congratulations again to my dear friends Callie and Phil! What a beautiful family you have!! <3





H Family | Pottstown Baby Photographer

Several weeks ago, I had the truly unique experience of photographing six-month-old QUADRUPLETS! I have to admit, I was pretty nervous going into it…but looking back it will definitely go down as one of my all-time favorite family sessions ever! These four sweet babies were just sooooo well-behaved and incredibly photogenic, and their parents were so relaxed and fun to be around, the session honestly could not have gone smoother if I’d tried! 🙂 Special shout out to my awesome assistant for the day, Alexa!

Before and After: The Signature Set / Philadelphia Newborn Photographer

After each photo shoot, I come back to my “digital darkroom” to add my own personal touches that can make your images really stand out. As one client put it…this helps to get those “ooohs and aaaaahs” from all your friends after your photos are up on the wall. 😉 Often, I’ll edit each image by hand, to make sure that every individual shot is tweaked to my liking. But sometimes, I love to play with different pre-made “actions” and “presets” created by other pros in the field.

What an exciting privilege to be one of the testers for this gorgeous new set of Photoshop Elements Actions for Marissa Gifford PhotographyMarissa Gifford Photography! I am in LOVE with the soft, warm tones and subtle mattes included in this set, plus she included such luscious sounding names that kept me inspired as I worked (Summer Peach Haze, Rich Sunset, Plum Velvet and my personal favorite…Elemental B/W which includes a whole set of individual layers named Earth, Air, Fire, and Water)!

Check out a few of my favorites actions on this 2012 shot of sweet baby R.

(For those of you who don’t speak photographer slang, SOOC stands for “Straight out of camera”, or my unedited original image)
