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!

Her First Two Weeks | Annapolis In Home Newborn Photographer

working with families like this is just one of the many reasons why i love being an annapolis in home newborn photographer.  having newly had two baby girls, the reality of newborn life is still fresh in my mind and i love working with brand new parents…as i still feel like one myself.  from navigating the new world of newborn sleep and lack thereof, to learning anything and everything about your new baby, newborn life is full of days to be remembered.  and this sweet new family of three is soaking in every moment with their brand new baby girl.  not only was this little one so tiny and perfect, but she completely rocked her very first photo session.  and there is one thing for sure, she loves to cuddle close to mommy…and i can tell that her mommy enjoys these sweet moments just as much.  surrounded by love and a perfectly thought out girly nursery, this little one has a childhood full of fun ahead of her.  with her sweet little stuffed animals lined up in her crib and new books awaiting on her bookshelf, the days ahead are going to be full of baby giggles and memory making for the sweet family of three.  if there is one thing that i know for sure, it’s that this family is going to have some very sweet moments together in the years ahead.  and because this mama loves hugs, lots of hugs too!  :)

Her First Month | Arlington In Home Newborn Photographer

being an arlington in home newborn photographer is honestly the best job one can have.  not only am i surrounded by babies at home, but my job has me photographing sweet new little ones all the time.  and this little girl was more than ready for her very first photo session.  upon arriving at her home and meeting her sweeting parents, i was introduced to her sweet and calm self.  and between being cuddled by her mommy and daddy and listening to the click of my shutter, she was perfectly content throughout her session.  being a girl mama myself, i am in love with pink.  and this little one’s nursery was full of the sweetest pink tones, making it the perfect girly space.  at one month old, this little girl has everyone completely smitten by her.  even the family dog.  her sweet puppy loves her so much and was constantly checking in on her throughout our picture taking.  it was the sweetest thing and her parents have a feeling that their sweet puppy will be sleeping on the floor of this sweet girl’s bedroom in the years to come.  if there is one thing i know, it’s that this family is so blessed and they are completely enjoying their first month with their darling baby girl.  there love for one another is so sweet and this little one is so lucky with the sweetest family.  and did i mention her hair!?  how sweet!
