Baby Chelsa | 7 Days Old | Collegeville Newborn Photographer

Collegeville Newborn Portrait Melissa Layton Photography

Introducing Baby Chelsa! This sweetie pie came to me 7 days after she was born at Bryn Mawr Hospital, and I loved having the whole family here.

Chelsa got to come to me with her brothers, Vincent and Dominic, as well as her sister, Alessia, so it was plain to see that this little one is surrounded by people who love her!

I was able to do the newborn sessions for Chelsa’s brothers, so this was an especially exciting session for me to see how those boys and their big sister have grown up into their own little people. That’s one of the joys of my job as a family photographer: I get to see these kids grow from tiny little peanuts to balls of personality and love. Every time this family comes back to my studio, I consider it an absolute treat!

Holly & John, thank you again for bringing your family up to come see me! Now that you’re a family of six, there is even more joy and love to spread around, and I know you are going to shower your newest little one with goodness.

Baby Christian | 8 Days Old | Harleysville Newborn Photographer

Harleysville Newborn Portrait Melissa Layton Photography

Introducing Baby Christian! This little peanut came to my studio 8 days after he was born at Grand View Hospital in Sellersville, PA.

Christian’s big sister, Caroline, came to the session, and with a little coaxing, we were able to get her to pose with her little brother. I love getting sibling shots, because I love to see the very beginnings of that relationship as it starts to form.

But even if Caroline wasn’t so sure about sibling shots, Mom says she is sure that she loves being a big sister:

Christian has been such an amazing addition to our family. Bill and I feel so very blessed. Caroline loves being a big sister and has been such a great helper to Mommy and Daddy. Life with two kids has definitely changed things, but we are loving every minute of this new chapter in our lives.

Plus, Caroline has been involved from the very start. They even did the gender reveal at her birthday party! According to Mom:

Christian’s gender was revealed to our families at his big sister’s 3rd birthday party. We popped a huge, confetti-filled balloon, which was a lot of fun! Christian is the first boy on either side of the family out of all the grandchildren, so everyone was extremely excited when blue confetti flew everywhere!

Caroline and Christian also share the same naming conventions:

We both like names that start with the letter C. We have a 3 year old daughter named Caroline and ended up deciding on Christian for our little boy. His middle name is Joseph, which is his maternal grandfather and great grandfather’s names.

Laura & Bill, thank you for bringing your beautiful family to my studio. I loved getting to know every single one of you and know that your family will be amazing together!

Baby Jacob | 10 Days Old | Collegeville Newborn Photographer

Collegeville newborn session melissa layton photography

Introducing sweet baby Jacob Joseph! This adorable baby boy came to me just 10 days after he was born at the Einstein Medical Center Montgomery in East Norriton.

Mom and Dad knew they were going to have a little boy early on, but this family likes to keep their secrets:

Timothy and I couldn’t wait to find out the gender of our baby! We knew that we were having a boy by the time I was ten weeks pregnant. Instead of sharing the gender with our family right away, we decided to host a gender reveal party for them a few weeks later. We invited our immediate families over our house for lunch, and the surprise was in the dessert! At the same time, each family member bit into a cupcake filled with blue icing in the center. Surprise—it’s a boy!

In keeping with the surprises theme, they also kept Jacob’s name under wraps for a while:

Timothy and I decided on “Jacob” quickly in our name search. Similar to the gender, we decided not to share the name with our family and friends until after he was born. It was a fun secret that we enjoyed having just between us.

But this family is about more than just surprises. Jacob’s middle name also has a touching meaning:

Sadly, Timothy’s younger brother, Joseph, passed away unexpectedly a few days before Jacob’s birth. We decided to honor Timothy’s younger brother by using “Joseph” as the middle name.

Mom came in with a solid idea of what she wanted out of this newborn session, from the colors to the poses, and I was so glad I was able to help her to get those perfect photos she wanted.

Danielle & Timothy, thank you so much for bringing your sweet boy to my studio for his first-ever pictures! I loved getting to know your family!

Baby Logan | 7 Days Old | Exton Newborn Photographer

Exton newborn session Melissa Layton Photography

Introducing Baby Logan! This little peanut came to me just 7 days after he was born at Paoli Hospital.

I loved the fact that Logan had his family all around him for this session. Not only were his older twin sisters, Brynn and Teagan, there to love on their baby brother but also Logan’s grandmothers from both sides of the family came. Clearly, this little guy is surrounded by love!

I love the story Mom told of the gender reveal for little Logan:

We went back and forth about if we were going to find out the baby’s gender this time around. Jeff said he had to know with the twins for the fact there were going to be 2 babies to prepare for, but he would be okay being surprised this time around. In a way, I wanted to be surprised, but I also wanted to be completely prepared for this baby too, knowing I could feel more connected to the baby during my pregnancy knowing the gender, and also able to prepare our two-and-a-half-year-old twin daughters by talking about this new little bundle who would be joining our family.

We decided to make the trip to San Francisco to visit my sister and her family for Thanksgiving, knowing it might be a while before we are able to make the trip again with three little ones. We were still on the fence about finding out but agreed it was okay for me to get the envelope at my doctor’s appointment before we left for California, just in case! We decided during the plane ride out there it would be fun to do a reveal in California, since my sister’s family doesn’t get to actively participate in person for special things like this very often. We didn’t tell anyone our plan, but Jeff had gender reveal decorations delivered to the house within a few days of our arrival, and on Thanksgiving morning, he woke up extra early to decorate their main living space. As each person woke up and wondered why everything was decorated, we let them know we were going to find out the gender on Thanksgiving afternoon.

With the help of a family friend (who would not be at the reveal), the results were read, and a baseball with pink or blue contents was selected to be used later in the day. Mid-afternoon on the East Coast, when Jeff’s family was getting together for the holiday, we FaceTimed them and let them know we were about to find out the baby’s gender and they were about to find out with us. We all went to the backyard, where I pitched the baseball to Jeff (decent pitches might I add) 3 times, with him missing each time. He blames it on the kiddie-sized bat he was using. Finally, he threw the ball up for himself and knocked it across the yard, with a huge cloud of blue powder exploding all over us. We were having a BOY!!!

What an amazing story! And what an amazing family, too. Thank you again, Kelly & Jeff, for bringing your little ones as well as your joy and love into my studio.

Baby Charlotte | 7 Days Old |Drexel Hill Newborn Photographer

Drexel Hill newborn session Melissa Layton Photography

Introducing Baby Charlotte! This cutie pie came to my studio at just a week old, and she was full of personality!

This little gal loved to flash me some adorable smiles. I was able to catch her cute grin a few times, and I’m proud of how those pictures turned out. Newborn grins are the best!

The color scheme for this session was also perfectly suited to Little Miss Charlotte. The soft lavenders and pinks complemented her complexion so that it really did look like Charlotte was a model. I love how the soft colors accented her dark hair. She had such precious expressions throughout her newborn session.

Richard & Olivia, I can’t get over how cute your smiley little daughter is. Thank you for bringing her to my studio so that I could meet her!
