Newborn + Big Sister {Arlington, VA Family Milestone Photographer}

I love having the same families in front of my camera.  What started with updating dad's LinkedIn profile has turned into multiple sessions a year, and I've loved watching their daughter grow.  I've also had the joy of watching their family grow!

On a gloomy Saturday morning, I headed to their new house to capture their almost-three-week old baby girl.  The rain took a break long enough to also squeeze in a session for big sister's second birthday.

Sweet nursery window light and outdoor play and trikes and swings and snuggly baby girl....

A First Birthday Celebration {Alexandria, VA Baby Photographer}

The cutest, pouty-ist lips.

The thickest hair.

The most beautiful siblings and parents.

And the most anti-cake baby I've ever met.

This first birthday session was hilarious and adorable.  This sweet little man acted like we were torturing him to get him to try some cake.  His older siblings were happy to sample, but he was not having it.  However, he was still completely adorable and I loved working with his family!  I'm working on putting together my own baby's cake smash next week and wondering if she'll feel the same way!

Celebration! {Arlington, VA Family Photographer}

This family was amazingly fun.  The daughter is preparing for her birthday and First Communion next weekend and everyone was fun to be around.  Worried about rain, I rushed them around Bluemont Park but two energetic kids meant no one was fazed.

We laughed and jumped a lot, and no one got too muddy.

Baby E Turns One!

Baby E's mom reached out to schedule a session a few months ago.

When scheduling problems arose, I was able to switch baby E's family shoot to a mini-session to celebrate her first birthday.  That was no biggie.

But then there was the weather.

Flurries and wind chills in the teens do not a happy baby make, so we moved indoors to celebrate baby E.  In her Woodbridge home, she showed off an extreme love for Doc McStuffins and Minnie Mouse.  She was a super easy-going baby and didn't cry one bit!

A Double Cake Smash: Annandale, VA Twin Birthday Photographer.

I love cake smashes.  I love first birthdays.  And I love twins.

So when I got an inquiry incorporating all three of those things, plus some cute Dr. Seuss themed accessories, I knew I would have fun with this family.

As is typical, one of the boys thought the session was great fun and the other disagreed completely.  However, we laughed a lot and managed to get some great, cake-y shots of both twins.

Happy birthday F and M!

Turning Three in Old Town: Alexandria, VA Family Photographer.

I had the opportunity to photograph a cute little guy on his third birthday over the weekend.  The session was full of pleasant surprises.  During the week, his mom and I had emailed all sorts of back up plans in case of freezing temperatures.  Then the weather report kept showing rain.

Somehow, we had upper 50s or low 60s and clouds.

This family used to be our neighbors, and this is the same little boy who literally ran from my camera on Halloween, less than a month ago.  Over the weekend, he was cooperative and hilarious and not at all hesitant around that big camera.

Happy third birthday, B!

Somehow we still had leaves, too!

**I am officially booked for 2015.  I am starting to reserve sessions for 2016, primarily starting in March.**
