Getting to watch a family come together and grow is a very special thing and there is only one family that I can say I was lucky enough to be there at the beginning.  Because I no longer photograph weddings, these days, I’m often coming into the story after it has begun.  The couple has married and have now added a baby to the mix and I show up to capture that moment.  This family is special because we met through a mutual friend as they were scrambling to quickly plan their wedding.  They needed a photographer.  I was slowly getting out of weddings but not completely ready to be done and so I stepped in.  She was stunning.  He was handsome.  And it was obvious how much they loved each other.  I loved being able to capture this part of their story.

From that moment, I’ve been fortunate to watch their family grow.  First with little Miss B and now with baby sister Miss K.

I try to include a mix of moments with mom and dad along with the posed images.  For me, it always comes back to telling the story of this new little life and a big part of that story is the people who love this little one.  First it was big sister!

And while family pictures with a 2 yr old and a newborn are challenging, they are not impossible!

These images were all photographed in the family’s home.  Yes, you can have beautiful newborn photos without having to leave your home.   I offer in-home newborn photography for families in Western PA.  Contact me and we can begin to plan your next session.
