4 Weeks New | DC Newborn Photography

one of my favorite things about doing dc newborn photography is the families.  i love working with brand new families, as they live out their first days and weeks as new parents.  becoming parents is one of the most wonderful things in the world, and these two parents are so incredibly sweet.  their sweet little boy was 4 weeks old on the day of his newborn session and it’s hard to believe that they have only been parents for a few short weeks, as they both make it look so natural and effortless.  this little guy sure loved listening to the click of my camera during the first few minutes of the session.  he completely modeled for his first photos and was the sweetest and most curious little guy before deciding he wanted to be snuggled close to his mama and daddy for the rest of the session.  these parents were lucky enough to have both of their mothers visiting, and even the grandmas joined in, from time to time, to help love and cuddle this sweet little boy.  if there is one thing that i know for sure, it’s that this little boy is completely surrounded by so much love.  his family can’t get enough of his sweet smell and cuddles and it was so sweet to watch everyone take their turn swaying with him, as he drifted off to sleep.  between the endless kisses and the countless hugs, this little one enjoyed simply being loved.  seriously, this family is just so sweet!

Another Little Girly Girl | Gaithersburg Newborn Photographer

this mama and i can relate on so many levels.  i met her when i photographed her first baby girl, when i was 3 days away from giving birth to my baby girl.  and after just recently having my second baby girl, i met up with them again to photograph their second girl!  we are basically twins! and she is having just as much being a girl mama as i am.  even more, she and i are both so overwhelmed with love for our girls.  it’s so much fun to talk with another mama who is going through exactly what you are going through, with kids basically all the same age.  whether we are sharing things that make us laugh or things that make us nervous, i love how most of our session is full of real mom talk while i photograph this beautiful new chapter in her life.  i just love photographing her and her sweet family.  with a two week old baby girl at home, life with two babies two and under is busy, but blissful for this sweet family.  and these parents just have so much love in their eyes for their two baby girls, it’s so sweet to photograph.  it seems like just yesterday that i was photographing their first, and now photographing their second baby seems so crazy!  time sure flies when you are having fun, and this family is definitely having fun.  i love watching them cuddle their babies close and just take them in.  and while these days may seem busy and long, i know these sweet parents are savoring it all.  one of my favorite things about being a gaithersburg newborn photographer is being able to meet wonderful families like this and photograph them as their family grows.  it’s so beautiful to be apart of their journey and to give them photographs that will savor each milestone.

Sweet Sister Love | Fairfax In Home Newborn Photographer

having just given birth to our second baby girl, i had to retire my hat as a fairfax in home newborn photographer for a few months for maternity leave.  but i was welcomed back into sessions this month and, when not photographing my own newborn, am now pointing my camera at even more sweet babies.  this sweet family of four was so much fun to photograph from the moment i met them.  their oldest daughter is 4 and she chatted my ear off as soon as they graciously welcomed me into their home.  she introduced me to their puppies, showed me her room and showed off her sweet little sister.  and when it comes to photographing families, this family owned it!  they were so sweet and easy to pose, and had no problem staring at their beautiful children lovingly while i photographed some of their first moments as a family of four.  let me tell you, there is certainly a lot of love in this family.  when these sweet parents aren’t shushing and kissing their littlest, they are chasing after and giggling with their four year old.  parenthood sure looks beautiful on them and i can tell they are cherishing every moment with their sweet girls.  and when i see their sweet oldest looking so sweetly at her little sister, i can just invision years and years of sweet sisterhood ahead for these sweet peas.  their house will definitely be full of hair bows and the sounds of the sweetest giggles as these two girls grow and grow.  this family is beyond beautiful and full of love.

And Then There Were Three | Vienna Newborn Photographer

being pregnant for the second time makes being a vienna newborn photographer even more amazing, as i watch families welcome new babies and know that we will experience that same feeling in just three short months when we meet our second baby.  and this sweet new family of three was so much fun to work with.  their little girl is simply darling and spent the first 45 minutes of her session wide awake, loving the sound of the shutter clicking on my camera.  after she was given another belly full of milk, she quickly fell asleep in her mama’s arms…where she stayed cuddled close for the remainder of our session.  and this little peanut was exhausted!  her parents let me know that she currently has her days and nights a tad mixed up and spent the night before partying.  it’s always the best of both worlds to have a baby both awake and asleep during a session, to capture their sweet eyes and facial expressions and then photograph their peaceful sleep.  and she loves to be cuddled close because she was sure breathing heavily as we finished up her very first photo session.  even passing her to daddy and grandma didn’t wake her, she was catching some zzzzzzz’s.  if there is one thing i know about this family of three, it is that they are truly in love with one another and they are living some of their best (and yes, tiring) first days with their new sweet daughter.  so honored to have photographed some of their first moments as a brand new family.

3 Weeks New | Washington DC In Home Baby Photographer

meeting this sweet family last weekend was truly so much fun.  their little man surprised them by arriving 5 weeks early and couldn’t be more perfect!  while early babies sometimes send mamas into a panic of “am i ready!?”/”is the house ready!?”, this mama was so ready to meet her little boy that the timing worked out perfectly!  and he was so ready to meet his parents too.  this little boy was so calm throughout his entire first photo session.  minus a couple diaper changes and calming cuddles, he just adored being swaddled and held close.  everything about him is completely perfect, from his handsome full head of hair to his tiny wiggly toes.  just watching his parents adore everything about him made me very ready to meet our second baby in january.  newborns are truly the most beautiful thing in life and this little guy’s parents are truly enjoying every moment as they learn more and more about their little boy.  not only is this little boy so loved but he is going to grow up in the most beautiful home, and in a room that was thoughtfully picked out and designed by his mama.  watching two people as new parents is one of my favorite parts of being a washington dc in home baby photographer, as i know the feeling all too well.  and this family has a lot of beautiful memories ahead of them.  i was so happy to document some of their first memories as a family of three.
