PHILADELPHIA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER | LETTERS TO OUR CHILDREN JULY 2014

Dear Chance,
It’s been a big month, filled with milestones and summer activities. Your personality continues to reveal itself, through bouts of giggles and your determination to be on the move.

We took a trip to Titi Lucy’s beach house this month, an annual tradition since I was a little girl. 🙂 It was a luxurious 4 days of lounging, playing, cuddling, and laughing for the four of us! You loved feeling the ocean breeze on your face, and of course you tried to eat the sand. 😉 We loved the luxury of being able to set our own pace of playing in the sand all morning, laying around napping all afternoon, and then heading out for ice cream and more beachside fun in the evenings.

I was especially happy that we spent some time visiting with my Abuelo and Titi Lucy. Abuelo isn’t as mobile as he used to be, but he’s still got all the boyish spunk that I remember from my childhood. He loved making you laugh and watching you play and try to crawl.

You’ve been working hard on achieving some major milestones this past month. You got your first two teeth (ouch!) and are so anxious to start crawling and walking! The past two days, all you want to do is be held so you can stand. I know you will be walking before we know it! As exhausting as these milestones can be for us, we are also so very proud and thoroughly entertained by you as well! 2014-07-24_0010.jpg

I love you so very much, and I am so excited to see what the next month will bring for you!

Love and kisses,
Mommy

Philadelphia Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Baby K

I loved being able to capture so much of this family’s personality in sweet baby K’s lifestyle newborn session. Dad is an airforce pilot, and being able to include that important part of their lives into K’s photos was very special. I loved that dad even requested a shot with K wearing his “Baby-ators”!

I am so thankful for all of my clients who serve this country, and for their hardworking partners at home who make such big sacrifices so that we can all stay safe. Happy Independence Day!

Philadelphia Lifestyle Newborn Photographer | Baby J and Family

I loved working with this fun family for their lifestyle newborn photo session. This little guy was almost TOO easy! He slept like a champ for his solo portraits, and his big brother was just the cutest thing when it was his turn in front of the camera. 🙂

Philadelphia Newborn Twins Photographer | Miss V & Miss O

Newborn photo sessions for multiples are always extra special. I love to hear about the babies’ similarities and differences. Lifestyle newborn sessions are especially fun, as they allow me to capture all of the little daily quirks that come along with caring for two babies at the same time (like what color pacifier each one gets to help mom and dad tell them apart!). This sweet family was so fun to work with…and how cute is that happy big sibling pooch??! 🙂

Philadelphia Family Photographer | Letters to Our Children June 2014

Dear Theo,
This month you turned 4 years old. As cliche as it might sound, it’s as if I blinked and the past four years have just completely flown by. You are growing into such a sweet-hearted, empathetic, bright little boy. You are clever, you have a fabulous imagination, and you are especially gifted with spatial reasoning (things like puzzles and building new inventions with your Legos). Sometimes I realize that we put so much emphasis on your silly and joking nature, because you really are quite the performer. But you have so many other wonderful qualities too, and I want to be sure to remember them as you grow up.

To celebrate your birthday, we continued our (hopefully annual) tradition of going to Dutch Wonderland. This year made your daddy especially excited, because you were tall enough to ride your first roller coaster. It really turned out to be the perfect day…even Chance was a great sport and happily let us lug him around the park all day.
2014-06-28_0004.jpg

I know I’ve said it before, but the relationship you are building with your brother just makes my heart absolutely soar. You are so loving, gentle, and concerned about him every single day. There are times when you really are the only person who can make him laugh, and you make it a point to do so as often as possible. 😉 I hope this never ever changes!
2014-06-28_0007.jpg

Now that you’re done with your first year of preschool and summer break has started, I’ve been trying really hard to give you the quintessential “fun” summer that I remember from my own childhood. We’ve been exploring new playgrounds, staying up past bedtime, and indulging in ice cream as much as we want! I love that this photography passion of mine has allowed me the opportunity to spend so much time with you and your brother.

I hope that one day you will know that we have been so very blessed. Lately this has been a struggle for you to understand, as you are at an age of extreme entitlement and start to pout when we don’t always indulge in “special” things like new toys, lunches out, or special treats or activities. But I truly hope that I can continue to teach you that blessings don’t always have to be “bought”, and that we already have so very much by sharing love and joy within our little family.

Philadelphia Baby Photographer | Miss J’s Four Month Photos

I loved working with Miss J and her sweet parents for her four month baby photos. Those chubby cheeks, tiny toes, and adorable baby giggles just never get old, and I had such a great time being able to capture these precious moments for her doting parents.

Valley Forge Family Photographer | Letters to Our Children May 2014

Dear boys,
This past month has been a very busy one, with your mama’s work picking up as the weather gets nicer. The weekends used to be about relaxing and spending time together, but these days you two are having more “dude time” with daddy while mommy goes off to her photo shoots. It’s a good thing, because this is what I’ve been working so hard for, but it also sometimes comes at the expense of some of our precious down time together.

2014-05-28_0003.jpg

After a long weekend of me being stuck in bed with strep throat this past weekend, the three of you happily joined me for my photo shoot in Valley Forge National Park. Daddy was kind enough to drive you around for your nap while I worked, and then we all met back up for a downright perfect Memorial Day picnic dinner. Chance had his first taste of canteloupe, while Theo entertained us with silly stories and discovered the joys of collecting buttercups. It’s moments like these that make me want to stop time.

The three of you make up my own private comedy show. I adore just sitting back and watching the action. Chance, you have officially hit the stage where new milestones are being met on a daily basis. These photos were taken just days ago, and already you are now officially sitting up on your own! And Theo, you have been understanding the basic structure of jokes better lately, and you’ve even started making up your own (completely nonsensical) jokes as well! 🙂 Watching the two of you laugh together just makes my heart completely swell. <3
