Abby’s First Birthday Photos | Sterling, VA Baby Photographer

I met Abigail and her parents when she was 11 days old.  Now she is ONE!  Happy birthday sweet girl.  Abby has been such a joy to get to know this year.  I have photographed her and her family four times this year and she’s such a smiley girl every single time.

For her session, her parents wanted to plan something with balloons, and a then and now image.  Mom shared that she had fun on etsy and got her a cute little “wild one” onsie that she wanted to include in her session.  Her parents also wanted to turn this session into a family photo session with patriotic colors.

I have to tell you a story about this balloon.  I enlisted my husband to run to the store for me to have it filled.  When I purchased it online, I knew it said 36 inches but completely failed to inform my husband of this fact and just handed over the balloon with no label.  The poor guy came home and said….”I had to tell them to stop filling it up so it would fit through the car door!  Did you know you gave me a THREE FOOT balloon?!”  Surprise, honey!  This was so much fun to incorporate into Abby’s session.

When mom asked for then and now photos, I got so excited.  Abby was one of the first babies to be photographed in this cute tiny sofa and I couldn’t think of a better way to use it for her 1 year portraits.  I have Abby’s newborn image sitting here in the studio so it was quite simple to just grab the frame the day of her session. (Pro tip for baby’s safety, remove the glass before taking this type of photo with a baby.)

Take a look at Abby’s photos!

[Garrett] 10 Day Old Newborn | Alexandria, VA

Meet Garrett, a 10 day old little cutie who drove (ok, maybe his parents drove) all the way from Alexandria for studio photos.  This super champ didn’t even open his eyes a single time during his newborn photo session.

Garrett’s parents chose a Posed Newborn and Family Session which is perfect for documenting your first few weeks as a new family as well as including posed photos of just baby too.

D Family Photos 2017 | Washington, DC Family Photographer

I love watching families grow in front of my lens.  Every time a new client inquiries about booking a photo session, my response includes a link to my current work for them to view.  With so many talented family photographers in our area, it is important to me that my style fits your style.  It is my goal to not simply photograph families once, but to establish a trusted relationship with your family and children and to make family photos easy for you every year.

I have had the pleasure of photographing the D family every year since their oldest was a year old. Enjoy this year’s family photo updates!

Gwen’s First Birthday! | Sterling, VA Photographer

I have had the pleasure of photographing this little lady and her family since her mama was pregnant with her.  Take a look at her baby plan recap and don’t miss the most recent photos from her first birthday session too.

Her big brothers spent some time of their family maternity session exploring the woods and searching for frogs.  FV5A3440-Edit

The whole family also visited the studio for Newborn + Family photos after Gwen was born.  Mama asked me to stack her siblings, so we did!FV5A5022-Edit-2-Edit-Edit-3

Little Ms. Cupcake also came to see me for her 6 month sitter milestone as well as holiday photos.jamie-romaezi-fv5a3881-edit

The real reason you’re here though is because Gwen turned ONE!  She came in for her 12 month photos and has grown from standing assisted to assisted walking.  This little lady wanted to push mini chairs and stools all over the studio for her session!  Her mama is a baker and brought along a smash cake as well as an adorable cupcake banner made by Creigh-ations.  She knew what to do with her cake too and was happy to have it all to herself!

Charlotte is One! | Sterling, VA Baby Photographer

Happy birthday to this sweet girl!  I adore her gorgeous hair, blue eyes and those most perfect baby legs!  Charlotte had a few happy moments, sitting in my cute new box (the things I do to babies!)  She also showed us the progress she is making toward walking, and was quite perplexed by that pesky number 1 that I kept putting in front of her.

My Best Friend’s Maternity Photos! | Northern VA Maternity Photographer

Some of my closest friends are having their first babies this year.  It has been really fun to watch them on this journey, and celebrate with them.  As the resident “veteran mom” of this circle of friends (it makes me giggle a little to refer to myself that way), it is fun to watch them grow into motherhood in their own respective ways.

I met Millie 10 ish years ago when we both worked for USA TODAY and what was then Gannett (the company has since gone through some structural and name changes since.) She tells a story of this weird, chatty girl that appeared out of nowhere and would just come over, use their department’s DVD burner and talk to her.  We worked in different departments but got to know each other well thanks to my need to copy demo reels and shows we had produced. Over the years, we changed jobs but our friendships grew.  She has been there for me in some of my family’s hardest, and most importantly happiest times and is one of my closest friends.

I was so excited to take Millie’s maternity photos this past spring.  She planned to wear a floral dress she found and loved.  She also planned a wardrobe change into a dress a photographer friend of mine let us borrow.  I have a small collection of gowns, but long sleeve and pink called to her and so we made it happen!

Take a look at her pretty photos! Her sweet new baby boy has since arrived and I can’t wait to share his newborn photos for you.  Spoiler alert: He is the CUTEST baby.
