Chloe is a pretty lucky little lady with two big brothers to protect her… her 3 year old brother Carter and her 5 year old brother of the furry variety, Geeves. I love when clients include their dogs in their newborn sessions. They are our first babies (maybe only other crazy dog people will understand, but that’s ok). Chloe was 9 days old when they came into my Collegeville studio for her newborn session. She was complete perfection. Her big brother and pup weren’t too bad either! Below are some favorites from Chloe’s newborn photo session…

I loved getting to photograph Austin at one week old in the studio. And loved even more that he was joined by his furry, four-legged big sister Quartz. Newborn photos with a dog involved can be a challenge. But these two were both were amazing for me! Below are some favorites from Austin’s newborn session. And since he’s part of the Baby’s First Year Plan, I’ll get to see him again when he’s a smiling, sitting six month old!

In just a few short weeks, this family will go from being a family of three to a family of four. We recently got together to document this exciting time. Dylan was a ham for the camera, and he loved loving on his mama’s belly. I think he loves his baby brother already! I’m looking forward to seeing them in the studio soon with their new baby Huggles (affectionately named by big brother Dylan). Below are some favorites from Chrystine + Ryan’s maternity session…

The thing that most drew me to photography was the storytelling. While I love being able to freeze a moment in time, what I love most is putting all those moments together to tell a real story. I’ve recently started incorporating video into some of my work and it’s love. It’s something that photography just can’t capture.

What is Fresh 48?

A Fresh 48 Film is done in the hospital after your baby arrives. It’s unscripted and unposed. It’s all about capturing the little details of the newest little love in your life. It’s teeny toes and the tiny fingernails that you’re terrified of having to clip for the first time. It’s milk bubbles and little lips. It’s the sweet sound of a new baby’s cry. It’s all the newness.

Fresh 48 Films are perfect for first time parents, as you experience how surreal it is to go from being a couple to being a family of three. They are also a beautiful way to document your growing family… your child meeting their new baby brother or sister for the first time.

If you’ve had a baby, you know what a blur those first few days are. You’ll want to remember this.

Below is a Fresh 48 Film that I’ve made of twins, Josh and Teddy, at Paoli Hospital when they were only two days old…
