the official lifestyle PHOTOGRAPHER OF Washington DC & NORTHERN VIRGINIA

i truly love the families that i get to meet, being a washington dc newborn family photographer.  even more special, i get to meet families during one of the most exciting times of their lives, as they welcome a new baby into their family.  and this sweet family of three was so fun to work with last weekend.  i love seeing parents with their brand new babies as they navigate feedings and diaper changings.  it reminds me of my husband and i only 10 short months ago, when we were living our first days with our daughter.  this sweet little girl was such a trooper during her very first photo session.  while she shared her sweet eyes with us throughout the beginning of the session, she soon fell into an adorable sleep once her sweet belly was full of milk.  if there is one thing i know about this sweet girl, it’s that she is so incredibly loved.  at just eight days old, she has brought so much happiness to her new mama and daddy and the good times are just beginning.  as they cuddled her close and took in everything about her, my heart was so happy for them.  thank you so much (w) family for a wonderful first family session, your daughter is perfection.  i hope you enjoy your first collection of family photos and i hope to photograph more of your sweet family and your little girl grows and grows.

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.
