the official lifestyle PHOTOGRAPHER OF Washington DC & NORTHERN VIRGINIA

being a dc baby photographer means not only do i get to take pictures of sweet baby toes all the time, but i get to meet some of the sweetest people while i do it.  and this amazing family of three was so much fun to work with last weekend.  their sweet little boy was so excited to meet his new parents that he decided to come a few days early.  let’s get this party started!  his parents were only too excited to meet their little boy and life of diaper changing and night feedings has begun.  i loved watching this couple as parents, they look as though they have been parents for months instead of weeks.  they lovingly handed one another diapers and burp bibs and took turns loving on their sweet son.  it was so endearing to see them enjoy their new little baby and get to know everything about him.  this little boy did a perfect job during his first photo session and he stayed awake, showing off those gorgeous eyes, the entire time.  just when we thought he was going to fall asleep, his sweet eyes would open and he would gaze curiously around the room.  my camera couldn’t get enough of his sweet eyes and, even while editing their final collection of newborn photos, i was swooning over them.  thank you so much l family for a wonderful session and for welcoming me into your home to document some of your first family photos as a family of three.  i hope you love your newborn collection just as much as i do and i hope to document even more of your special moments as your little boy grows and grows.

being an old town alexandria newborn photographer may just be the best job in the world.  i get to meet really sweet new parents and take pictures of precious little faces and toes.  and this sweet girl completely spoiled my camera during her session yesterday.  at eight weeks old, she is completely adored by her parents.  as we chatted about how quickly babies change, they told me about how much they love watching her grow and see her little personality develop.  this little girl has the sweetest little cheeks and when she smiles, she shares the most darling dimples.  every time she smiled, her parents were completely in awe of those sweet dimples.  and, to be honest, she stole my heart as well. seeing how much this tiny girl makes her parents smile was completely heartwarming and i can tell that they are enjoying being new parents to this sweet pea.  just when i thought this sweet girl was going to stay awake through the entire session, she fell asleep sweetly on her mama and showed us that she even sleeps beautifully.  she made my job of photographing her so incredibly easy as she either smiled curiously at my camera or slept soundly.  everything about this 8 week old girl is completely perfect and she rocked her very first photo session.  i only hope to photograph even more of this sweet family’s moments as she grows and grows.

from the moment i arrived at this beautiful family’s home, i knew it was going to be an amazing session.  their two year old son was more than excited to see me and was very ready to get in front of the camera with his brand new baby brother.  being a dc newborn photographer allows me to work with a lot of families during a very special time in their life and this family is definitely a family i will remember.  between sweet smiles and two year old breaks to enjoy cake pops, this family enjoyed some really precious moments together that i was lucky enough to photograph for them.  watching these sweet parents navigate two little boys was really sweet to watch, especially as this gorgeous mama snuggled their tiniest boy close while her husband played sweetly with their oldest son.  it’s always fun to see how children assume the roles of being a sibling, and this little boy showed me that he is really happy to be a big brother.  as he kissed his sweet baby brother on the nose and tickled his sweet feet, his little eyes were just full of wonderment and awe.  and when he reached into the crib to sweetly tickle his brother later in the session, my heart officially melted. it was then that i knew that these two boys are going to have a lot of adventures with one another and the fun is just beginning.  before long this little one will be trying to crawl and walk, if only to catch up to his older brother.  this family has years of happiness ahead of them and i only hope to photograph even more of their moments as a family of four as these boys grow and grow.

i wasn’t supposed to meet this sweet little girl until january, but she decided she wanted to spend christmas with her family and arrived a little early.  being a springfield newborn photographer brings me so much joy, especially when i am introduced to families like this.  having chatted with this mama while she was in the hospital waiting for her baby girl to arrive, i was so anxious to meet her and document her sweet family during their first days home together.  and, at eight days old, this sweet girl completely rocked her very first photo session.  as my camera fell in love with her, her sweet parents told me all about her arrival and the story of their beloved pup.  having been sick for a little while, this sweet baby girl arrived just in time to meet and say goodbye to her big sister pup.  on the day after bringing home their baby from the hospital, they said goodbye to their first baby…a beautiful husky dog.  while their hearts ache, they are comforted with knowing that their sweet daughter now has the most beautiful guardian angle.  just listening to this story pulled at my heart and made me love this family even more.  and with every sad goodbye, there is a beautiful hello.  not only is this family completely gorgeous and happy, but they are completely meant for one another.  just watching the three of them together, it is as if they have been a family for ages…not just 8 days.  everything about them is beautifully natural and they are the sweetest parents to this lucky little lady.  i only hope to photograph even more of their family’s special moments together as this little girl grows and grows.

oh my goodness, this sweet family of four totally made my weekend.  being a fairfax newborn photographer allows me to meet and work with some of the very sweetest families and this darling family is definitely one to remember.  having welcomed their second child into their family one month ago, this sweet family was so excited to document some of the very first moments as a new family of four.  upon arriving at their home and meeting their two year old little boy, they told me all about their new life as parents of two under two!  while some moments have them scrambling in different directions, other moments are pure blissful and they are enjoying every second with their sweet children.  as i was chatting with this gorgeous mama about how her son was adjusting to being a big brother, she was happy to tell me that he absolutely adores his little sister and simply cannot get enough of her.  and this charming big brother definitely showed me how much he loves his tiny little sister as he looked at her with the sweetest eyes and gave her the gentlest of kisses.  i literally thought my heart was going to melt as i watched him smooch her sweet cheek.  just watching this family together made me so happy and editing their images made me smile even more as i recalled how much fun their session was.  for many photographers, newborn sessions can be stressful, but mine tend to be full of fun and laughter.  if there is anything i want from my clients, it is for them to remember being relaxed and happy during their photo session.  and i just know this sweet family not only had a great time documenting their new family in portraits, but they are going to love their daughter’s newborn collection.  i only hope that i can take even more photographs of these sweet kiddos as they grow and grow.
