Meet baby Leona | Northern Virginia lifestyle newborn photography

Anyone who's followed my photography for any length of time knows that I LOOOOOOVE getting to know my clients. I find it to be so important to capturing the essence and joie de vivre of my subjects! In my busiest seasons, it's a bittersweet joy for me to photograph engagements, and then weddings of my couples. Then, I love following their love stories as they unfold... going on honeymoon... buying a home... and often, welcoming children to their family!  While weddings, anniversaries, and engagement are my focus, occasionally, a family I've grown close to will ask me to photograph their newest additions... and if I'm extra-lucky, it will work out in my schedule! And that's how I came to meet adorable little Leona, the newest addition to Tommy + Corrine's family!

Webster family mini-session

Hillary and Matt are some of my favorite people ever... if our circle of friends had a "dean" like the diplomatic core, it would be Hillary and Matt! Amelia was the first kiddo added to our circle of friends, and 6 months ago, Teddy joined her making the Webster family officially a party of 4. Matt and Hillary snuck by after work with Amelia and Teddy in tow for a quick mini-session. How sweet are they?!

Elkridge Maryland newborn: Meet Baby C!

My seasons are a little bit different from normal seasons... mine are newborns (winter), engagements (spring), weddings (summer), and more weddings (fall). Today was a beautiful day, so perhaps spring has finally arrived? Nonetheless, on Sunday, I had the joy of meeting Baby C, who was born while I was in India. You may remember her parents' beautiful maternity session from a few months back... I think Baby C lived up to her parents, don't you? What an absolutely lovely family!

Family session: Indoor winter portraits with Baby S

I'm delighted to be home from India and Nepal! I can't wait to share my trip, but today I have an amazing family session to share. Watching my family clients grow is a delight. Yes, one of my 2015 resolutions is to focus on my wedding clients, but the family clients I do have are a treasure. I met Baby S when he was less than a week old, and then again as "Super Baby" at Halloween.

Merry Christmas! // First Christmas children's photos

Merry Christmas! If you celebrate, I hope brunch has settled in, and you're enjoying a few minutes of internet time in your new Christmas pajamas. This is a scheduled post because I'm at home with my own family in Cleveland, but I just had to share the cutest kids' holiday session you could ever possibly hope for. Have a wonderful day!

Reston VA newborn: Meet Baby JR

The last three months of the year are always my favorite. I love the crisp coolness in the air, the back-to-back-to-back holidays, and the feeling of family and community that always seems to seep into my consciousness. Family and community aren't just on my mind, though. This charming family is growing and beautiful. Much happiness to them!

Family lifestyle shoot: Ice cream in the park

I get a lot of questions about what a lifestyle session is. Today I have an awesome one to share! Rachel and her kids go to Walter Pierce Park in Adams Morgan every week to hang out, play, and picnic with the neighbors. They stop at the corner store and get ice cream, and spend lots of time on the playground. So for our photo shoot, that's exactly what we did! Basically I love this family more than there are words to say.
