You

You woke me up to write this.
You’re always on my mind.
Our mind.
I may not feel you yet
But I do.

You caught us by surprise
How quickly you appeared.
It was a Wednesday. 8/29.
Two little lines.

You made us laugh.
You made us cry.
We said a toast
To you that night.

You are so little
But yet so big.
The biggest little thing.

You did flips the other day.
You already love to dance.
Showing off in that darkened room
Lighting up our lives.

We see you in our dreams
Especially your dad’s.
An extra kiss goodnight
And one when we wake
For you.

Halfway There

I've officially hit the six month mark in my business! I thought it'd be the perfect time to sit down and reflect on these last few months and what I've learned (which is A LOT by the way). It's been an exciting, scary, overwhelming, crazily amazing half of a year but I wouldn't change a thing!

Jack + Ellie – Newborn Session

When we grow up, we want to be Erin + Mark. That's what Mike and I said to each other after getting to know our neighbors down the hall.

Somewhere in between countless gab sessions in our hallway about building issues, local happenings, or "you won't believe the sh**" that happened to me today" conversations, we became friends.

Little Leo – Newborn Session

The first thing I said to Jess when we chatted about setting up this session was how much I loved the names of her two sons - Luke + Leo. Paired together, these two just sound like the most adorable duo. One of my favorite things during newborn sessions is getting to watch these newly promoted older siblings interact with the new center of attention in the room. With his mop of blonde curls, Luke was curious, playful, and affectionate with Leo, curling right up next to him to tell me all about his new brother. He even showed me the differences in their feet, making for one of my favorite candid moments of the day. It's amazing how a bond can already exist and be so strong in such tiny humans!

Casey – Newborn Session

During my shoot with Casey, Annie + Baby Casey, I had one question for Havertown's newest dad. Did he ever in a million year's think that I, the wife of one of his high school lacrosse rivals, would be plopped up in bed for a photoshoot with him, his wife, and their baby boy?
