I had so much fun photographing this sweet, beautiful family in Chester Springs, at the Binky Lee Preserve. It was a hot spring morning and we had the prettiest cloudy skies rolling in overhead. I love that mom put so much thought into their session to make it special for their family. Everything that you see in these photos, she brought along. That includes the wagon, blankets, pillows, a homemade teepee, a wooden crate, favorite books, a whole fun bag of cars, water and snacks (let’s be honest, perhaps the most important ingredient for a perfect session), and that phenomenal skirt. Oh, and did I mention the smash cake to celebrate the little guy’s first birthday? Ya, that too. And the suspenders and balloons. I honestly just can’t handle the cuteness or get over mom’s planning. I aspire to this level of organization and preparedness.

And with all of this pre-planning, the session was still completely relaxed and fun. It was so fun to see the boys explore the fields, snuggle with mom and dad, play in the teepee and go for a ride in the wagon. I could look at their happy smiling faces all day. They were such sweethearts and it was such a pleasure to photograph them.

Main Line Newborn Photographer | A Classic In Home Session

I just love this family and their classic, simple style. It makes for such beautiful, airy newborn photos. Plus, the camera adores them and their light-filled house is a photographer’s dream.

I met them for the first time when their son was born and I got to photograph him as a tiny newborn. I still remember how mellow and calm he was for his session; the perfect baby. I’m so happy that his sister was equally cooperative for her session. She slept and snuggled with mom and dad and her big brother for a while. Then, right before the end of the session, her eyes popped open and she was full of smiles and looking right at my camera. Perfection!

Of course, there was one big difference between these two newborn sessions, this one included a 19 month old. Getting a toddler to pose with a newborn is never a sure thing, but fortunately, this big brother made it look easy. Then, when his patience limit was reached during family photos, he shot up from his dad’s lap like he was going to catapult himself off of the bed. The photo of that moment might not be the one that ends up in the frame, but it definitely captures life with a toddler. Their interest and attention can change in a second. It makes me smile every time I see it.

Since Florence’s very first day of school in September, she has had a best friend named Peter. At the beginning of the year, I loved arriving early to pick her up so that I could watch them playing together on the playground. She would come home telling me stories about how she and Peter had to be separated because they wouldn’t stop talking during story time. I’m pretty sure they still aren’t allowed to sit next to each other for that part of the day. Apart from that though, they are really just adorable together.

I needed a volunteer family for an in home documentary session, and Peter’s family immediately came to mind. It was so much fun hanging out with them for a bit in their home. The older boys played a card game and Peter made a tower with his magnatiles. Peter also gave me the grand tour of their house, and he even showed me the attic! He was an excellent host.

I love how each of the boys’ personalities come through in the photos. Have I mentioned that these sorts of in home sessions are my favorite? They are. I love how comfortable kids are in their own space; how there is no fighting about posing and smiling for the camera. Everything just sort of happens organically. If you are interested in booking a session like this for your family, contact me and let’s chat!

Main Line Family Photographer | Fun at Home

There is nothing that I love more than coming into a family’s home to capture their authentic, everyday lives.

I love documenting story time and meal time and snack time – cuddling, laughing, and maybe even some fighting. I love that these pictures will only become more meaningful and treasured as time passes. Soon, they will tell the story of what every day used to look like, as kids grow and routines change.

I have been photographing this family since their oldest was one. Last Fall, they won the documentary session contest that I ran. It was so much fun to photograph them in this different way. Although I have loved all of my sessions with them, this one was really special. I know that ten years from now, seeing these photos will bring back memories of when the littlest still carried around his lovey, when the oldest got mom and dad all to himself for nap time, and when mom was expected to carry two little people down the steps at once.

It’s all so impermanent and time goes too fast. It feels good to be able to bottle a bit of it up, to pin it down in a photo that you can hold in your hand forever and show your children as they grow.

This is what life used to be like…

My name is Katie! I love color and pretty light and happy faces and sessions that include all of those things. Photographing families like yours, capturing the essence of what makes you unique, is my passion. I want to get to know you and to tell a story that is authentically yours.
