the official lifestyle PHOTOGRAPHER OF Washington DC & NORTHERN VIRGINIA

i think becoming a mama myself has made me love my job as a northern virginia newborn baby photographer even more.  not only because i know so much more about babies now, but because i can totally relate to the pure joy my clients are experiencing during their first weeks as new parents.  i remember that feeling all too well, all the newness and awe of having a newborn baby.  and this sweet family is sure living in a state of newborn bliss.  their little boy is just the sweetest little man…and so incredibly calm!  i think he fussed once during a diaper and outfit change, and then quickly calmed and completely rocked his very first photo session.  between looking up at his parents and taking in the sound of my clicking camera, he was simply content as i documented every sweet thing about him from his cute little toes to his full head of hair!  and i love it when babies stay awake throughout their session, it is so much fun to document their little personality that shows through their curiosity.  this little guy reminded me so much of my little girl, as he was so content with just observing the world around him while i took his pictures.  this sweet family is definitely blessed with a sweet little boy and i was honored to photograph some of their first moments as a family of three.

being a gaithersburg lifestyle family photographer not only means that i get to work with amazing families all the time, but it also means that some of those families turn into friends.  and for that, i am forever grateful.  if there is anything about my job that truly fills my heart, it is meeting families like this one.  i met them last year, when their little girl was 5 days old and i was…exactly 3 days away from labor with my little girl.  since our girls are literally a week apart in age, this has given this mama a special place in my heart.  not only is this family so incredibly kind, funny and contagious with their love, but they just make you feel like you are so welcome in their home and in their life.  the last time i saw this mama, she was brand new with a little baby.  she was tearing up in disbelief, thankful for everything about her little girl and so completely in love with her family.  and a year later, even more love.  they lovingly call their little girl “cutie”…for reasons that are completely obvious, she is darling!  and between tickling her, kissing her cheeks and having the puppy make her laugh, this session was just bursting with love.  if there is anything that i wish, it is so photograph this family again and again.  their are just certain families that you walk away from after a session feeling on top of the world and inspired, and this is truly one of them.

after a journey to have a little baby, this sweet family has the cutest little boy.  i love being an alexandria newborn baby photographer because of the families it allows me to work with, and this family is truly special.  and their puppies were such funny little fellows.  they wanted everything to do with the pictures and were constantly finding ways to sneak themselves into the photo.  at eight weeks old, this little guy is getting used to his new family just as much as they are getting used to him.  his daddy absolutely adores to cuddle and kiss him and his mama truly looks at him with adoration.  if there is one thing i know for sure, it’s that this little boy is in every way worth the journey it took to meet him and his parents are completely smitten by him.

families like this make being a bethesda newborn photographer the best job there is.  this is the second time i have worked with this sweet family, only last time is was when their first daughter was only days old.  this time, they welcomed me into their beautiful home to introduce me to their youngest baby girl so we could document the beauty of their growing family.  if there is one thing that i adore about this family, beside the fact that they are the kindest people i’ve ever met…it’s that they allow me to just do my thing when it comes to picture taking.  i love it when families place their trust in me to simply document their current life in photographs and, honestly, the pictures turn out so much better when i am allowed my creative freedom.  let me tell you, this family completely spoiled my camera.  from cuddling their newest daughter to kissing their oldest, they made having two girls under two look effortless.  also, this new big sister is rocking her new role.  as she tickled her baby sister’s toes and gently patted her head, i could just see the two of them a year from now running around this beautiful home, squealing with joy.  while life looks beautiful right now, i have a feeling that the best is still yet to come for this sweet family.  and i hope to continue documenting their beautiful story.

as an alexandria newborn photographer, my job comes with so much cuteness.  i mean honestly, i just get to hang out with the sweetest new babies all the time and chat with their amazing parents.  and being a newer mama myself, there is nothing i love more than trading first time parenting ups, downs and in betweens.  it is a beautiful journey, and this sweet family of three is just starting theirs.  when i first met this sweet mama, she was so nervous that her little one was going to make a fuss for his photo session.  but he was absolutely perfect.  even better, he stayed awake and batted those beautiful big eyes at my camera throughout most of the two hours i was with him.  everything from his gorgeous full head of hair to his sweet tiny toes was just perfect and boy, did he enjoy the clicking sound of my camera shutter.  as his parents cuddled and kissed him, he looked up at them with his cute eyes and simply took in the moment.  if there is anything that i love about newborn sessions, it is watching a new baby take in the world around them.  and this little guy simply stared around the room and at his parents with eyes of wonderment.  if there is one thing i know for sure, it’s that this sweet family of three is completely smitten with one another and their best moments are just beginning.
