Oh, sweet little Riley Jean. She came into the studio at one week old and she was complete perfection. Those squishy cheeks and perfect little lips. I loved getting to capture all her tiny details in her first days. Riley’s big sister, who quite honestly is not much bigger than Riley herself, came into the studio as well. And might have been the most well-behaved dog ever. People often ask if they can bring their dog for their session and the answer is always a YES! Below are some favorites from Riley’s session… Since she is part of the Baby’s First Year Plan, I’ll get to photograph her 3 times in her first year. I can’t wait to get to photograph her again as a six month old…

Here’s a look back at baby Michael at nine days old. We recently did his seven month session, the second session in the Baby’s First Year Plan so before I share that session, let’s look back on him when he was teeny tiny…

As you probably know by now, I love me some mini-schnauzers. I have a squeaky one of my own so I was insanely excited for Moose and Gracie’s session. They’re such a funny pair because they look so different (Gracie being mostly black, and Moose being a shade of brown that’s very unusual for a schnauzer) and their personalities are polar opposites (Gracie being sweet and timid, and Moose being energetic and excited at life) but they are mother and son. For their session, we walked around Old City, Philadelphia… trying to avoid parks because there is nothing that Moose loves more than squirrel-chasing. I absolutely loved getting to photograph these two… below are some favorites from Moose and Gracie’s pet session…
