Down Syndrome Awareness Month {Arlington, VA Photographer}

It's Down Syndrome Awareness Month, so my family participated in the Down Syndrome Buddy Walk for Northern VA this weekend.

My girls had a blast.

Ellie's highlights were petting and hugging a llama, then taking a selfie with it*, jumping in the bounce house, and receiving a medal as a VIP which she promptly shared with her new goat friend.

Caroline's highlights were dancing and then being super sleepy in her stroller and missing the rest of the fun.

*The llama may be an alpaca.  Not sure.

Welcome, Baby J {Fairfax, VA Lifestyle Newborn Photography}

When I got asked to photograph new baby J, I was happy to say yes.  Her mama is the friend of some dear friends, and J was a doll baby.  My baby had started walking just a few days before, so a newborn session was the perfect remedy to my own "they grow up too fast!" feelings.

I went to J's beautifully decorated home and got to follow her family around as they fed and comforted her, and settled her down to sleep.

I had a great time with J's family.
