Rosabella | Two Years Old | Philadelphia Photographer

Philadelphia Two Year Session Melissa Layton PhotographyLook at how much Rosabella has grown! Can you believe she’s already 2 years old?

One of the joys of my job as a child photographer is having clients come back to me. It brings me so much joy to photograph their families as they grow over the years. I love to see how kids develop into their own little people with their own personalities, and Rosabella was no exception.

I tend to think my parents describe their kids best, so I’ll let Mom tell you about sweet little Rosabella:

Rosabella is my firstborn child, also known as my wild child. She is full of personality, with a great sense of humor. She’s lovable, affectionate, friendly, and sweet as sugar. On the other hand, she’s so sassy, demanding, and rebellious. She’s a prankster and fearless as a daredevil. She still enjoys mimicking sounds and actions. She also enjoys fist pumping and dancing to music with good beats.

Rosabella showed off that wild child personality in her portrait session! She has such an infectious smile and her eyes just sparkle when she laughs. Two is such an amazing age, filled with new words and milestones. It was so amazing to get to spend time with this sweet little daredevil. I loved the sheer joy in her face when she got to drive in the pink car!  Watch out, world. Rosabella is on her way!

Vy & Ty, I’m so glad that I was able to do a portrait session for your family again. I loved getting to see Rosabella and seeing your family so happy as you grow together! I can’t wait to see you again!

Baby Kaitlyn | 6 Days Old | Harleysville Newborn Photographer

Harleysville Newborn Portrait Melissa Layton PhotographyIntroducing Kaitlyn Margaret! This cutie pie came to me just 6 days after she was born at Grand View Health, and she’s such a sweet little peanut!

I always love when the parents I get to work with share their stories of their surprises and excitement, and I loved this story of the gender reveal:

Matt and Colleen couldn’t wait to find out the gender of their baby, so they decided to do a gender reveal party with close family and friends. To no one’s surprise, Matt wanted a boy, while Colleen was hoping for a girl! On the day of the ultrasound, the technician wrote down the gender on a small index card and sealed it in an envelope (the soon-to-be parents wanted to be surprised too)! For the reveal, they decided on a baker making a dozen cupcakes, with only one of the cupcakes with the specific color icing inside. On the day of the reveal, all the guests chose a cupcake at random . . . and on the count of 3, all the guest bit into their cupcake, with only one revealing the gender. After much anticipation, Colleen’s father said, “I have a cupcake with some colored icing in it . . . (longest pause ever!) . . . .and it’s NOT blue!” Everyone, including the soon-to-be parents, burst into tears of excitement, and despite Matt’s desire for a boy, they could tell he was equally excited for a little girl!

I also loved how they picked their little girl’s name:

Matt and Colleen were on vacation to Dallas, Texas, earlier in the year, and spent the entire vacation contemplating names. For the first name, they were looking for a simple, yet traditional name, and for the middle name, they were looking to incorporate a family name. The first name was a toss-up between Erin, Paige, Lindsey, and Kaitlyn, and the parents finally chose Kaitlyn (Kate for short) because of its Irish, Gaelic origins, meaning “pure.” For the middle name, they listed out all the female family names on both sides of the family and finally landed on Margaret, taken from Kaitlyn’s maternal grandfather’s cousin, which also happens to be her mother’s middle name.

Before the session, I got some pictures of little Kaitlyn’s nursery, so we were able to work together to match colors and backgrounds so that Kaitlyn’s newborn pictures would match her surroundings. I’m always glad when parents reach out to me to take that extra little step to make a session personal like that.

Thank you, Matt & Colleen, for trusting me with your little girl! I’m so excited for you all to be a family of three and know the Kaitlyn is already so loved!

Baby Ryan | One Year Old | Blue Bell Baby Photographer

Blue Bell One Year Session Melissa Layton PhotographyCan you believe Ryan James is already one?

This cute little guy is already walking and talking and being a typical big personality. He’s got an older brother (Matty) and an older sister (Sophia), so he’s constantly trying to keep up with them. He spent a lot of his time on the sidelines at his brother’s games and his sister’s dance classes. He’s an active little guy, but that makes him so much fun to photograph!

Mom was telling me all about her little adventurer:

Ryan is a climber like we are not used to! You name it, he has climbed on it, in it, or around it! We most recently found him with his whole body inside the second floor of his sister’s doll house!

It’s so fun to see kids grow up and develop their own little personalities. It’s one of the best parts of my job!

Thank you, Krista & Matthew, for bringing this little guy to my studio! I loved having him around!

Baby Mia | 15 Days Old | Philadelphia Newborn Photographer

Philadelphia Newborn Session Melissa Layton Photography

Introducing Baby Mia! This cutie pie came to me 15 days after she was born at Pennsylvania Hospital.

Mom told me that she’d heard about my newborn photography from a friend and decided to give me a chance, and I’m so glad she did! It always warms my heart to hear that my clients love my work enough to trust me with their friends and families! I know I’m doing something right when that happens.

Both Mom and Dad came to the session, and I was glad to see them there. I know that new parents can sometimes be nervous about coming all the way to my studio for a session. I’m glad I was able to talk with them and reassure them that their daughter was being such a rock star.

And she was! We got some amazing images, and I’m truly proud of how this session turned out.

Adrian & Melanie, thank you for bringing your beautiful daughter to my studio. I loved getting to celebrate your new arrival with you!

Camryn, Brynn, and Sadie | New Hope Family Photographer

Family Portrait Session New Hope Melissa Layton Photography

I was thrilled to have these amazing girls in my studio! I love having families who return for photography even as their kids start to grow up, so that I can see the kids and their families grow and progress.

I can hardly believe that little Camryn is 6 years old! She is already so amazing and fun to work with, and I look forward to seeing her and her sisters every time they come back.

Camryn’s little sisters, twins Brynn and Sadie, are 3 years old already—which is also so hard to believe! They are so full of life! Together, these three girls are an adventure in and of themselves, but that just makes photographing them a blast.

Mom told me that she plans to keep bringing her family back for family pictures until they’re all grown up, and I’m absolutely here for that idea! After all, I fall in love with the kids I get to photograph, and I love to see them take on the world. I look forward to all the years of seeing this sweet New Hope family grow!

Stephen & Cherlynne, thank you for bringing your girls to me. I’m so touched that you continue to trust me with your family photography!
