I loved capturing this beautiful mama and her littles together on this beautiful winter afternoon in Bethlehem. I photographed these guys a little over a year and a half ago and to see how much they've grown in such a short period of time is so crazy! I'm always asking my own kids to please stop growing up, especially when I see older photos of them, and I always feel the same way photographing families year after year. No more growing up kids, OK?! But in all seriousness, this is what I love about taking photographs for people. Freezing the memories of this little afternoon together in time, and imagining them looking back at these little faces years from now. It's the best.
I got to photograph this sweet little nugget come into the world a couple of months ago and it was amazing, beautiful, incredible...there really are no words that do it justice. I get teary eyed just thinking about the moment little Julia made her debut and her parents got to hold her for the first time. I photographed her big sister Florence's birth a few years ago and was so honored to be able to do it again. Can I please photograph a birth like once a week? Actually that might be dangerous because I'll end up with baby fever and have like 10 more kids. Ha! I met up with these guys a week and a half later to do a newborn session in their home and included a few favorites from that session after the birth photos above. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! :)
I spent a brisk fall morning with these guys recently at Jacobsburg Park in Nazareth and had the BEST time. Seriously, this family is amazing. Such smart, sweet, adorable kids, and two parents who are so clearly in love with each other. You know, just my dream family to photograph. :) I think the thing that stood out to me the most though is how Eliza, Ava and Gabe are truly best friends with each other. They really have a special bond and I loved getting to know them during our session. I'm pretty sure I even got Gabe's approval at the end of the session that he thought I was pretty cool. ;) Love these guys!!
