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!
Summer has hit and yes, I’ve disappeared a bit from blogging. I do have a backlog of photos to share and write about, but I’m letting a recent photowalk jump the queue! Why? Especially in the summer, as the heat hits and I slow down business work in order to enjoy the simple joy of being present with my family, as an introvert, I can also get crazed by the emotional drag of hearing “Mom! Mom-mom-mom-mom-MOM!!!!” all day long and for all manner of reasons. For my church, I led a small group of photographers on a photowalk through Philadelphia, and although it was hard to clear my schedule for it, I felt a certain amount of photographer refreshment to pull away and visually look at subjects that are not my usual jam.
