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!

Baby Tenley | 29 Days Old | Valley Forge Newborn Photographer

Valley Forge newborn Melissa Layton Photography

Introducing little Tenley Evelyn! This cutie was a little bit older than my usual newborns, at 29 days old, but she was an adorable little peanut.

Sweet little Tenley was born at Bryn Mawr Hospital at just about 34 weeks along. She spent 18 days in the NICU after her mom had been on bed rest for 2 months due to some serious complications. But both Mom and Tenley pulled through!

Mom said that it was a trying time, but it was also one filled with love:

Since I was in the hospital for the two months leading up to my delivery, there were so many people who helped and continue to help our family. My Mom, Jamie’s parents, other family members, and countless friends did so much for us, and we are forever grateful. However, my husband is the true hero who kept our house running smoothly, comforted Tristan when he really missed me, and helped support me from afar. I truly fell in love with him all over again!

I was so glad to see Mom and Tenley in my studio after everything they’d been through, and of course, I was thrilled to see little Tristan as well. I did the newborn photos for him, too, so seeing him in full big brother mode was so fun!

Mom also told me the sweetest story of how they found out that they would be having a daughter:

We found out it was a girl through a cupcake reveal with a few family members. It was such an exciting moment, one I will never forget. I was the first one to see the pink icing. The confirmation of being pregnant with a daughter truly took my breath away, and then I cried so many happy tears. I just couldn’t believe it! Tristan said there was a baby sister in mama’s belly since day 1, and he was right. He even said he had a baby sister in his belly too!! Thankfully, that was just pretend.:)

James & Carrie, I’m so glad that I was able to do these newborn photos for you, and I’m thrilled for your little miracle!

Baby Claire | 7 Days Old | West Chester Newborn Photographer

West Chester newborn Melissa Layton Photography

Introducing Claire Elizabeth! This sweet little girl came to me 7 days after she was born at Paoli Hospital, and I couldn’t have been more excited to meet her.

I was particularly thrilled to see this family back in the studio because I’d done the newborn photos for their first baby, a little boy named James. So getting to see how much he’s grown and also getting to watch him interact with little Claire was a treat for me.

Little brother, James always knew that he was going to have a sister, too, according to Mom:

Claire was our second baby, and we decided to keep her gender a surprise like we did for her older brother. Her older brother, James, is 23 months older than her and enjoyed watching Mommy’s belly grow. We asked him what he thought the gender was, and he always confidently replied “girl.” (We even tried mixing it up and said little sister or brother, and his answer was sister!) When she arrived and my husband told me the gender, I was overcome with so much emotion! Her big brother was right, and I couldn’t believe it! It was such a heartfelt moment. We were also unsure of how big brother James would react to meeting Claire, but he did amazing! He LOVES his little sister Claire and enjoys telling everyone about her!

Before Claire had even been in this world for a full day, she had already become a little star. She was featured on NBC News not 24 hours after her birth. They were talking about Paoli’s “Warm Feet, Warm Heart” campaign for National Heart Disease Month in February.  What an introduction to the world!

Paul & Sarah, thank you for bringing your family back to my studio so I could meet your newest bundle of joy! It was so fun getting to see you and your kids as you celebrate becoming a family of four.

Baby Jackson, 3 Weeks Old | Phoenixville Newborn Photographer

Phoenixville newborn melissa layton photography

Introducing Jackson Alexander! This sweet little boy came to me 3 weeks after he was born at Phoenixville Hospital.

Jack decided to come five and a half weeks early, and he ended up in the NICU as a result of some complications. But thankfully, the good doctors were able to get him healthy and took excellent care of him. A few weeks later, he was strong enough to leave and to come meet me, too!

I was also excited for this family because they are referrals from some other clients of mine, Ashley and Kyle, who I had done newborn sessions for when they had their two kids. Mom loved those newborn photos and wanted to have similar sessions done one day when she had kids. I’m glad I was able to set this up for them! It always makes me feel special when people seek me out when they’ve seen my work—and especially when my clients appreciate my hard work enough to recommend me to their friends and family.

I loved hearing the story of how they found out their good news:

We were not actively trying to have a baby but hoped to, so learning we were pregnant was an extremely pleasant surprise to us! It was difficult to keep the news a secret, as we were extremely excited. We told our family and close friends pretty immediately and quickly disclosed that we were having a boy as soon as we found out!

Mom and Dad also told me the story of how they chose Jack’s name, which I loved:

Jackson was the favorite baby boy name for both Mom and Dad, well before learning that we were pregnant. We could not agree on a middle name and did not decide on one until Mom was admitted to the hospital. Mom told Dad that it was his choice because he is the best husband.

Stefanie & Bob, thank you again for bringing your little boy to my studio! It was amazing to meet you and share in your joy and excitement.

Baby Anya, 10 Days Old | Wynnewood Newborn Photographer

Wynnewood newborn portraits melissa layton photography

Introducing little Anya Marie! This cutie pie came to me just 10 days after she was born at Bryn Mawr Hospital.

I was especially excited to see this family again because I had done the newborn session for big brother Eddie five years ago. It was amazing to see them back again—and this time with a baby girl!

And of course, I always love to see the babies that I photographed as they grow into their own people. I can’t believe that Eddie is already five years old. He’s so big—and proud to be a big brother, too! It was great having him and his parents, as well as Grandpa, all at the session.

Mom wanted little Anya to look like the princess she is, so we went through the colors and props to make sure that we showcased her perfectly. I think we did a great job, and I’m proud of the way these images turned out!

Dana & Ed, thank you for bringing your family to my studio. It was a joy to see you again and to celebrate with you as you become a family of four!
