Firstborn son | Lehigh Valley PA Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

Do you remember those first few days at home with your firstborn baby? It all kind of feels like a blur, while at the same time becomes forever ingrained in your memory of parenthood. I will always remember what it felt like to come home from the hospital and walk into our Maryland condo with our oldest, setting him down in the carseat in the living room, and looking at each other like "Now what?" In my memory we were so young. 29 and 31 years old. Looking back on the pictures of us from those first days, we were so tired, but delighted. Now that baby is eight and a half years old, and almost as tall as I am. To say that these days go by fast is an understatement.

I loved capturing the S family at home where they are most comfortable, admiring with wonder their firstborn son. It was such a joy to be present with them for this stage in their parenthood journey.

I love being invited to document the family as a big sibling welcomes a new baby home. So many sweet moments and brother's eyes just tell it all. Best friends for life :)   

Welcome Baby Edgar! Hellertown Growing Family Session | Lehigh Valley Newborn Photographer

It's always a bit daunting when a friend and talented photographer hires you to do their newborn session, but so much fun too. Baby Alexandra was two weeks old when we did their Growing Family lifestyle newborn session. I loved capturing their family life in motion- mommy waking big-brother Austin up from his nap with some cuddles, family reading time in bed while mommy nursed the baby, mommy snuggles and babywearing, dad firing up the barbecue and family superhero playtime before dinner. This was a FULL session! I love Growing Family sessions so much as we get to explore the family life with new baby in tow. Life moves on, toddlers need some extra attention (and popsicles!), and new babies fit right into the mix. Thank you Edgar Family for having me be a part of this amazing time in your family! 

Lehigh Valley Lifestyle Newborn Photographer: Welcoming Baby Stella!

I loved every minute photographing this in-home lifestyle newborn session in Nazareth, PA. This sweet family's first born is 2, and was so excited to welcome his new baby sister Stella home! Stella was about one week old when we did her session. What I love so much about lifestyle newborn work is how the older siblings are involved in the session, and I am able to capture just the family being a family- playing with the big kids, changing diapers, soothing and burping their newborn baby. All the emotions, smells, snuggles of a newborn, in their parents calming arms. Parents relaxed and in their own homes. Daddy playing hide-n-seek with big brother while baby nursed in her nursery. So many great moments from this playful session!
