My Job is About You | Northern VA Photographer

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.

Strawberry Shortcake First Birthday Photos | Northern VA Baby Photographer

First birthday parties are so much fun to plan!  This little lady’s mama absolutely wins for best birthday outfit.  Strawberry shortcake!  I admittedly got a little giddy when she sent me a photo of this outfit and shared that she would bring it for photos

We talked a bit before this birthday session and mom did not want a cake smash.  Instead we decided to incorporate strawberries and an antique high chair prop I have on hand along with the cute banners mom picked for her birthday.  The strawberries were a hit and this was a fun alternative to a cake smash session!  I enjoyed documenting the cute little expressions she made eating her berries too!

Happy birthday Gianna!  I hope you and your family enjoyed your special day!

Fresh 48 Photos, Virginia Hospital Center

There is nothing better than a fresh baby!  It was a true privilege to photograph this sweet little lady at less than 24 hours old.  Babies this age need their mama so I was thrilled that baby M let me take a few photos of just her before she wanted her mama back to eat, and eat, and eat!

“I just can’t believe she is here and she’s mine.” Your baby’s first few days are full of so much adjustment that they go by in a snap.  Fresh 48 sessions can be done for hospital, or home births and are a great way to document the moments when your family, or baby’s siblings meet him or her for the first time.

I was absolutely hooked on Baby M’s curly hair and the cute little headband her mommy picked for her.  She stretched her sweet little legs and feet throughout her session, taking full advantage of the space she now has to do so!

Logan [2 Weeks New] | Springfield, VA Newborn Photographer

I have a brand new 20 x 30 canvas on my studio walls!  This sweet little face.  His mommy just loved this little bucket and he made us work so hard to put him in it.  I had to try this prop with him twice!  The second time worked as you can see and it was so worth the extra effort that even I needed to print a copy.

Logan’s mom and dad joined him for a few family photos during their session.  Newborn family photos are so special.  Babies will never fit in your hands quite the same way ever again.  They grow so fast.

This big-little man was just about 9 lbs at birth.  He rocked his session, though he didn’t like to be on his tummy much.  He gave me plenty of sleepy time during his session and we got quite a few photos for his parents to pick from.

[Gwen] 9 Months Old | Northern VA Baby Photographer

I’ve been so lucky to see baby Gwen every 3 months since her mama was pregnant with her!  This cute little girl was so smiley for me, like always.  Her new trick during her milestone session was that she is pulling herself to standing now, and oh so proud of it. Babies learn so much in their first year and milestone sessions are a great way to document all they are working toward

[Talia] 2 Weeks Old | Sterling, VA Newborn Photographer

Baby Talia brought her parents and big sister along for her newborn photos on her due date.  She arrived exactly 2 weeks early so photos on this date were a nice way to celebrate her due date.  Big sister was so happy to show her new baby off and happily sat for sibling and family photos too!
First family photos are so sweet and the best way to document your family as it grows.

[Mia] First Birthday Photos | Sterling, VA Photographer

Oh sweet Mia!  I first photographed this little cutie for her lifestyle newborn photos just a year ago.  It is always so fun to document *my* babies every year.  It’s amazing how fast a year goes and how much a baby can learn to do in such a short time.

Mia is a very active little girl per her mom’s account.  She did not disappoint during her session. She was a busy little bee and certainly made us all work during her session.  Mom wanted to take a surprise photo for dad with his favorite sports team, the Redskins.  We also took a then and now photo using her newborn photo.


Mia also had a teal and pink cake smash added to the end of her session.  I always warn parents that cake smashes can be a sensory experience that not every little one likes.  While Mia enjoys cake, she didn’t like having to serve herself!  She dipped her finger in the icing curiously at first but later let us know this is not how you do it!  Mom sent me a cell phone snap later of Mia happily finishing off her cake from the comfort of her high chair!  How pretty is the cake mom brought along with her, though?
