Baby Gianna, 10 days young | Gilbertsville Newborn Photographer

Newborn photographer portrait maternity pictures Pennsylvania Harleysville Melissa Layton Photography WEB

Introducing Baby Gianna Starer! This cutie pie came to me for her newborn session just 10 days after she was born at Reading Hospital.

I was thrilled to hear that Mom was recommended to me by a friend of hers whose pictures I had done. It’s such a nice feeling to hear that not only is my work in baby photography appreciated, but that my clients trust me to be able to do the same for their friends. It is a trust I always strive to live up to.

Both Mom and Dad were over-the-moon excited to welcome little Gianna into the world after a long and emotional journey to becoming parents. So, listening to them gush about their little girl, it was so easy to get swept up in their joy:

Our long-awaited prayers have been answered with you, Gianna. You are everything we were hoping for and more. Our hearts are so full! Mommy and Daddy love you very much! There is nothing we wouldn’t do for you, and we promise to take care of you always.

I also love their story about how they picked out Gianna’s name:

Gianna is named after both her paternal and maternal grandmothers. Her paternal grandmother’s name is Anna Marie, and her maternal grandmother’s maiden name is Starer (the ‘er’ is silent). We also loved the meaning of Gianna, which is, “God is gracious”; extremely fitting, especially since God has truly blessed us with this child!

Even the way they talked about finding out the gender was filled with nothing less than ecstasy:

When Vince and I found out we were having a GIRL, we were beyond excited!!! A baby girl is exactly what we have been hoping and praying for! Gianna is our perfect little miracle, and our hearts are so full of love for our beautiful baby! Our family is now complete!

Michelle & Vince, thank you for bringing your beautiful miracle into my studio. I loved getting to be part of your joy!

Baby Finley, 11 days young | Wernersville Newborn Photographer

Newborn photographer portrait maternity pictures Pennsylvania Harleysville Melissa Layton Photography

Introducing little Finley Kai! This cute little bean came to my studio for a newborn session just 11 days after he was born at Reading Hospital. I loved having both of his excited parents in the studio with him!

It’s obvious that these two are just totally thrilled to be parents, and that excitement has been spilling over into everything they do since they found out, like their gender reveal:

When it came time for us to find out our baby’s gender, Nick and I asked the ultrasound tech to put the pictures revealing the gender in a sealed envelope. We wanted to open it once we got home so it was a special moment for the two of us. We originally wanted to do a gender reveal party, but after we found out that we were having a boy, we only lasted a few hours before calling both sets of our parents.

I also loved the story of how they picked out Finley’s name:

Nick and I both loved the name Finley; Finn for short. We loved that the name means “warrior”. We wanted a Hawaiian middle name because we were married in Maui. We wanted a name that started with the letter K, because my dad’s name is Kurt and Nick’s dad’s middle name is the letter K. We chose Kai, which means “the sea” in Hawaiian.

Caitlin & Nick, thank you for bringing your adorable little boy to my studio. I loved getting to meet all three of you and hope to see you again soon!

Baby Kendall, 2 years old | Lansdale Child Photographer

Newborn photographer portrait maternity pictures Pennsylvania Harleysville Melissa Layton Photography WEB

Can you believe Kendall is two years old? She was so adorable when Mom and Dad brought her to my studio for a milestone session, and I loved having her there.

Mom told me about how Kendall is bonding with her big brother as she grows up:

Kendall absolutely adores her brother. Recently, Anthony was practicing his karate moves, as he is determined to move up to his next belt color. Kendall was imitating the moves while her brother was practicing, and it was the cutest thing ever. It appears that my daughter was more flexible and had better form that my son when it comes to the moves. My husband was able to record them together, and we love to see our kids bond with one another and getting along. I must admit it’s not often that they are having a good time, as my daughter tends to take the spotlight away from my oldest. Kendall is used to getting all of the attention, and she loves to steal Anthony’s thunder at times.

She also told me about a recent family trip. Kendall loves to dress up and play make-believe, and she especially loves to be Elsa from Frozen, so a trip to Disney was a blast:

We took Kendall to Disney in April of this year, and she absolutely loved meeting the Frozen sisters, Anna and Elsa, in person. The highlight of the trip is that we stood in line for 90 mins for the Frozen ride, and it was so magical that Kendall wasn’t able to stop singing the song “LET IT GO”. She didn’t meet the height requirements for a lot of rides, so we are glad she got to meet some of the Disney characters on our trip.

Tony & Risa, thank you for bringing your darling family to my studio! I loved having you as well as both of your sweet kids around, and I can’t wait to see you all again.

Baby Noah, 9 days young | Doylestown Newborn Photographer

Newborn photographer portrait maternity pictures Pennsylvania Harleysville Melissa Layton Photography WEB

Introducing sweet little Baby Noah Michael! This cutie pie came to me 9 days after he was born at Doylestown.

It was a blast having the whole family in the studio—not just Mom and Dad but Layna and Talia, who were clearly so excited about having little Noah in the family. It’s always so important to me to be able to capture that feeling of togetherness. After all, the kids grow up so fast, and you want to remember this precious time before it is gone!

And of course, I love it when both Mom and Dad are in the studio. Not everyone can make the time for both parents to get the time off, but I love it when it comes together, because the first few days after a baby is born, that “new parent” look is still so fresh and beautiful to witness.

Jaime & Izzat, thank you for bringing your darling little boy to my studio! I loved getting to meet him and having the privilege of documenting your beautiful family.

Baby Molly, 7 months young | Doylestown Infant Photographer

Newborn photographer portrait maternity pictures Pennsylvania Harleysville Melissa Layton Photography WEB

Sweet little Molly came to my studio for a milestone session, and she was simply full of laughter and personality! She is seven months old already—can you believe it?—and gave me some big smiles.

Recently, the family had gone down to Universal Studios, including the Harry Potter World down there. The whole family loves Harry Potter, and they returned with a wand that Molly waved around just like she was casting a spell! Her mom had brought an entire Harry Potter set just for these pictures, which was so much fun to work with as well. I love it when parents bring something unique to their family or their children, so that the sessions can show off that individualism.

I asked Mom about how Molly is growing up, and she said that she was especially proud of the way her two kids were bonding together:

She loves her brother, Logan. She always laughs when he is around. She especially laughs when she pulls his hair.

I also loved that Grandma came to this session with Mom. It’s amazing to get all three generations in one place at the same time, and I loved seeing how much Molly is loved by everyone in her family.

Beth & Tobias, thank you for bringing this sweet little girl to come see me for her milestone session. I can’t believe how big she’s getting, and I can’t wait to continue to be part of your lives as she gets older and your family grows even closer!
