It’s always a joy to capture those first few magical days with a newborn. A documentary family photographer has the privilege of preserving real memories of a home as new parents settle into life with baby. But this newborn session in Philadelphia had a unique twist- this lovely couple brought their baby home to the apartment that Mom actually grew up in. I loved hearing about how mama’s old bedroom had been turned into baby’s sweet nursery!

Dad is a musician and wanted to share that love of music with his daughter from day one. She was already perfectly content to snuggle up on Dad’s lap while he played the keyboard. And when they weren’t making music together, Alexa was bringing the tunes. This is a house full of music and joy, and this family’s photography session truly reflected that.
