Pete and Angie welcomed baby Benjamin into the world on March 3rd. I was very eager and excited to meet this little guy.
I spent an afternoon with the new family last weekend. He is very much a snuggle bug.
The “other children” are taking nicely to Ben, they are very curious.
Trouble is very mothering of Ben. She lets mom and dad know when Ben might be fussing.
Awe, they are too adorable.
Angie is taking to the mother role beautifully. She is a natural and a natural beauty here as she nurses a little.
Trouble making sure Ben is clean.
Trouble again watching over everyone.
Haha! I LOVE this image.

A genuine smile while sleeping. He is a cutie!
Check out the slideshow below, its very sweet. 🙂
Jackson had a top notch first birthday! His mom thought of every single detail to make the best Dr. Seuss party.
Here is the birthday boy!
What is a Seuss party without green eggs?
Big sister Sydney
Family came in from far and near. Sydney was so excited to see her cousin.
Boys will be boys?
One of Jackson’s buddies.
hehe, he took to me nicely.
These guys are so cute.
Who want to play pin the hat on Seuss?
Mmm, Jackson loving that chin.
I see you!
A few of the faces from the party
Those are some blue cupcakes!
I love this shot, it may be my favorite.
A wonderful first birthday party! Certainly one to remember. No detail was left out.
If you want to see some more images from the day take a peek at the slideshow. Happy Birthday Jackson!!
I am sad to see one of my couples from 2009 moving away, but its a great opportunity for them and they aren’t going too far. Soyoung contacted me this earlier this year to see if I might be interested in doing some real estate photography for them. They remembered seeing the images I did of our old house when we sold it and half the success in selling a property is in the staging and photography. I was excited to do this for them and we did a few portraits of them in the apartment as well. I believe right now they will be renting the apartment out so if you are looking for an AWESOME one bedroom apartment in Old City, right across from Elfreth’s Alley, this is the place.
Fantastic open kitchen
Great light and an open floor plan
A little wider shot to show you the kitchen and living area
A higher view of the living area. This apartment has great floors.
I did a few little detail shots for Soyoung & Stephen so they could remember their time in the space.
Soyoung & Stephen, one of my favorite couples from 2009.
Their typical use of space, I believe Soyoung spent many an hour at that desk writing her thesis.
We went up to the roof to capture the view.
Philadelphia will miss you guys! Keep in touch and good luck with the Condo, I hope the images we got for you will help.
My good friends Ryan and Kelly just welcomed their second daughter into the world last month, Piper. (Yes, most of you will recognize Ryan, as in Ryan Estes, the one and only.) He is a great photographer, but even photographers need other photographers to document their families, otherwise we would never be in any images. That is the one downside to being a professional photographer, you are always taking the pictures! It pays to have good friends in the same profession. 🙂
I did a similar shoot for them when their first Daughter Vienna was born and I was excited to go over to do the same for Piper.
Such a good big sister V is. This image is one of my favorites. So classic.A little out take here as we let Piper chill and keep warm under the blanket, we are checking on her here. Cute sleepy baby.
Happy sleepy baby, love this one.
Ah, haha that face kills me.
Thought Ryan would get a kick out of this one. 🙂 Look they are making the same face. Accidents do happen and one must be prepared. (Luckily my velvet is the washable kind.)
Piper says hello world!
In the comfort of moms legs.
Oh those feet.
One happy Estes family!
Vienna playing a game of duck duck GOOSE! (she was wearing down a bit so I thought it would be good to get her moving for a minute.)
I love this.
Much much fun you guys! So happy I could come over and do this for you. Piper is adorable and I look forward to seeing your family grow.
