the official lifestyle PHOTOGRAPHER OF Washington DC & NORTHERN VIRGINIA

being a washington dc natural newborn baby photographer allows me to work with so many brand new families that love my style because it captures the pure joy and happiness that occurs during those first weeks at home with their baby.  sure, there is a little less sleep too, but those first weeks home as new parents are full of simply staring at your new baby and enjoying the new life that having a baby brings.  i love being able to watch new parents simply enjoy their new baby, and this darling family of three is so sweet.  from the moment i met this family, they were so incredibly kind and welcoming.  as they told me about their daughter’s birth (just one day after her anticipated due date!) and showed off her darling nursery, they introduced me to their little pride a joy.  and she is so darling!  and a curious little sweet pea too!  she enjoyed staying awake through most of the session, looking at her parents and munching on her sweet hands.  as she looked around the room with wide eyes, her parents couldn’t help but simply adore everything about her.  as they are learning more and more about her, it is evident that they are truly enjoying every minute as a brand new family.  from bottle feedings to diaper changings, they look like they have been doing it for ages, not just days!

congratulations on your tiny little girl!  i hope you enjoy your very first collection of family photographs just as much as i enjoyed photographing them.  i hope to photograph even more of your family’s special moments as your little girl grows and grows!

being a washington dc natural newborn photographer keeps me really busy these days.  between photographing my own little girl and my tiny newborn clients, my camera photographs a lot of baby toes.  but i would not have it any other way, babies and their brand new parents are seriously my favorite thing to photograph.  this sweet family welcomed me into their home last weekend on day 13 of being a family of three.  with their sweet baby girl awake and ready to for her very first photography session, we had a lot of fun documenting what their new life looks like as a new family.  as i photographed their sweet girl, her parents told me all about there first days together and i could tell that parenthood is all they hoped it would be.  between feedings and diaper changings, this mama kept saying, “i can’t believe she is ours.”  i love when mamas say this and i hear it often during my newborn sessions.  i think it is during first photo sessions that mamas truly get a moment to stand back for a second and think, wow, look at my beautiful family.  and this mama is completely blessed with a darling family that makes her so very happy.  as this sweet couple told me the beautiful and fun story of how they met, while completely gushing over their daughter, i could tell that their life was all that they wanted it to be.  i can’t wait for this sweet family to see their first collection of family photos and i hope to photograph their family moments again as their little one grows and grows.

being both a new mama and an arlington newborn photographer means…babies all the time.  aren’t i so lucky!  i love working with tiny babies, especially those in their first weeks of life.  on saturday morning, i was lucky enough to meet and work with this darling brand new family of three.  being parents for 18 days, this new mama and daddy were taking on the roles of new parents beautifully.  truth be told, they revealed that their little girl is a wonderful sleeper.  hooray!  she is already giving them long stretches of sleep during the night and days full of slow feedings and diaper changes.  just listening to these parents describe their day made me miss the early days with my little girl.  and this sweet little baby girl is completely adored.  her parents love it when she opens her eyes and we were lucky enough to have her awake during the beginning of her first photo session, to capture those beautiful baby eyes.  as she stared at my camera, we were all amazed at how calm she was.  as she kicked her little feet in the air and looked around her crib, she didn’t make a single peep!  needless to say, my camera was completely spoiled with such a patient model.  as her parents cuddled and held her throughout the remainder of the session, it was like they had been parents for more than just 18 days.  they are already pros, knowing exactly how their little daughter likes to be held and what things quickly calm and soothe her.  this collection of newborn images shows so much love and i am so excited for this darling family of three.  i only hope to photograph even more of their special family moments as their little girl grows.

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.
