A Lucky Little Sister | McLean Newborn Photographer

i am convinced that this is one of the sweetest families i have ever worked with, hands down.  oh my goodness, this family is not only kind and loving towards one another, but they are so much fun.  as they welcomed me into their home on sunday to meet there littlest addition, everyone was completely smitten by her.  especially her two new big brothers.  not only did they help to make beautiful artwork for her nursery walls, but they also helped to name their sweet little sister and are all too eager when it is their turn to hold and snuggle her close.  how lucky is this little girl to have not one, but TWO sweet older brothers!  and having had a house full of boys for the past 5 years, this beautiful mama is so excited to add some pink and hair bows into the mix!  having two girls myself, i know all about the love for pale pink things…so i was in heaven in this sweet little girl’s nursery.  with a beautiful bookshelf fit for a princess, splashes of soft florals around the room and an heirloom framed photo that has hung above cribs for generations before her, this little one is surrounded by a room that was made with love.  and her parents make being a daddy and mommy to three little ones look so easy!  during my whole time with this sweet family, i was reminded of why i adore being a McLean newborn photographer.  it is truly spending time with families like this, as they stare sweetly at their newest baby and one another, that make my job so much fun.  i really hope to photograph even more of their sweet moments as this little girl grows and walks alongside her big brothers.

Day 12 | Tysons Corner Newborn Photographer

this little guy had his very first photo session on saturday and he rocked it!  as his parents gave him a fresh bath, dressed him in his outfit and combed his full head of hair, he looked around his room and became infatuated with the click of my camera shutter.  i was totally honored to photograph this sweet family of three’s first family photos and watching them cuddle their sweet boy was so heartwarming.  being a tysons corner newborn photographer is honestly the best job ever, as i get to not only document everything tiny and sweet about newborns, but also document the first days of parenthood.  being a newer mama myself, i remember how the first newborn days are an equal mix of love, laughter and a little bit of nervousness.  but these two parents are completely naturals!  it’s amazing to see how, in just 12 days, parents can learn so much about their new little ones.  from what time of day they are their best self, to how they like to be held, to what each of their cries mean…it’s so sweet to see parents quickly learn every little thing about their new baby.  and as they cuddled their little boy close, gave him sweet kisses and kept him cozy during his first session, the love in their eyes was and is very evident.  one thing i know for sure is that this couple makes a wonderful team and are two of the sweetest people ever.  their little boy is so blessed to have the two of them as parents and i see a lot of fun and laughter in the future for these three beautiful people.  i only hope to document even more of their sweet moments, as their little boy grows and their beautiful journey as a family continues.

Worth The Wait | Washington DC Family Photographer

if there is one thing for sure about this little girl, it’s that she is in love with being cuddled close.  after sharing a few smiles (yes, smiles!) with my camera, she quickly let us know that she wanted to be cuddled tight by her mommy and daddy.  soon those eyes that once looked around the room curiously were closed as she snoozed away for the rest of the session.  with a belly full of milk and her swaddle tightly wrapped, she was perfectly content being tucked in close to her parents.  and her parents didn’t mind one bit.  as they held and kissed their brand new baby girl, they told me all about their first weeks as new parents.  from waiting for their daughter to finally make her debut to late night car rides to calm her when fussy, these sweet parents are beautifully taking in parenthood.  i love hearing about their stories and could tell that they are enjoying each and every moment with their sweet daughter.  as they swayed with their daughter around her beautiful new nursery and kept her cozy in their arms, they looked at her with the most adoring eyes and everything about them reflected pure happiness.  being a Washington DC family photographer allows me to work with a lot of amazing families and this sweet new family of three was definitely fun to photograph.  they truly are one blessed family.

One Year Later | ASL Family Photo Session

one thing that i pray a lot about is that God will help me use my talent to bring happiness to others.  and He will guide me to where i need to be and to use my photography as a way to document beautiful moments in both my life and the lives of others.  and this ASL family photo session is just one of the many reasons why i am thankful for my path with photography.  this path has introduced me to so many people, but it is the families like this that really have me grateful.  not only is this family beautiful and kind, but the parents are my heroes.

just last year i met them for the first time when their son was a few weeks old.  we took their very first photos as a family of three and documented everything that was brand new about their little family.  it was during that session that they told me their little boy had failed his newborn hearing screening test in the hospital and that they were on a path to further testing.  shortly after, they were given news that their son is deaf and their journey with CI’s and ASL began.  when i arrived for their family session, one year later, their sweet boy was napping…giving us a chance to catch up on the past 365 days and for them to give me just the tiniest of a glimpse into their daily life.

today, life is beautifully busy for this family of three.  whether it is ASL lessons, therapy, or doctors appointments, this family is constantly on the go.  and that is why they are my heroes.  not only are they navigating this journey beautifully with their son, but they are also inspiring others along the way.  they are smiling, laughing, sharing their story and enjoying each and every milestone with their sweet little boy.  and let me tell you, this little guy is the sweetest boy i have ever photographed.

he is a little flirt!  and i may have kissed his toes a time or two.  because, i just had to!  his smiles are contagious and his little giggle melts hearts.  but above all, the way that he looks at his parents with adoring eyes is heartwarming.  this family is so lucky to have one another and i am so honored to have been invited into their home to photograph this time in their lives for them.  i only hope that i can continue to photograph their family and their special moments as this little boy grows and grows.

A New Little Brother | Arlington Newborn Family Photographer

it seems like i was just photographing this sweet family yesterday because…in a way i did!  babies just grow so fast and their first baby is already 17 months old and is officially a big sister!  she grew into a toddler in the blink of an eye!  and she is a darling little toddler that is so full of smiles.  being an arlington newborn family photographer means that i am honored enough to photograph families during there first few weeks with their little one.  and what is really special is seeing those little ones grow and become big siblings!  once a teeny tiny baby herself, this big sister is now loving every minute of having a new little brother in the room across the hallway.  and while these two sweet parents definitely have their hands full i know (my girls are 20 months apart), i know there hearts are even fuller.  while daddy played with big sister and mama cuddled the littlest close, i could see genuine happiness in their eyes when they looked back and forth between their two babies.  photographing families as they become new families is one of my favorite things.  but photographing families as they grow is even better!  i love seeing my clients again and documenting yet another wonderful moment in their lives.  and this session seriously contains so much love and happiness, i am over the moon happy for this amazing family and hope to photograph even more of their happiest of moments as a new family of four!
