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…

We don’t have warm spring temps around here just yet but no worries… we were able to take advantage of the spring flowers without this chilly weather for Olivia’s six month session at Longwood Gardens. I feel like I always say it, but I can’t even believe that six months has passed since we did her newborn session when she was only five days old. Olivia is completely adorable and I loved getting to see her again! Next time I get to photograph her, she’ll be a one year old!
