I know that my job is to help you document your family as you grow. To find the little glimmers of magic between brand new siblings, between you, their parents. My job really isn’t about me at all. It is about you, and I love that part of what I do.
Watching your family grow means so much to me. When I arrived to take photos of her family, little Adelaide was the first to the door. I offered a high five and was promptly met with a hug. I have had the pleasure of taking photos for this family for nearly 4 years, since Addy’s birth and this little lady always steals the show!
Hiring me, means that you trust me with your tiny new baby and any other older babies too. That kind of trust means a lot to me and I take my responsibility to keep your babies safe very seriously. I work hard for your children’s trust too. It’s why I always take a step back, get down on their level, and engage them instead of simply instruct them. We play and in doing so, they learn. Because let’s face it, siblings are often close in age and no one really trusts a child 3.5 (or younger) to hold their brand new baby sibling, even the baby sibling sometimes. Especially when they are not ready! Look at how proud big sister was to hold her baby brother, and safely to boot. It took a few minutes to teach her, but she was SO proud when we let go. Let go is even a loose term. Dad and a bunch of pillows hide well under that fluffy rug.
I am so happy for my families when they welcome a new member. IThis photo session was a lifestyle session in the family’s home. It was so fun to meet baby Max. Welcome to the world little dude. I can’t wait to see you and your sister grow together.
If you are looking for a newborn photographer in the Northern Virginia area, I would love to work with you. Posed newborn photos are taken at my in-home studio in Sterling, VA when your baby is between 6-14 days old. It is important to book your newborn session at the beginning of your third trimester, sooner if you are planning to also have maternity photos taken. I am currently booking newborn sessions through October. Please contact me for specific availability.
