Max is One! | Northern VA Baby Photographer

There certainly are perks to having a spring birthday, one of which is the ability to take first birthday photos outside!  Max brought his family along for photos, which means I got to see all of them twice this year!  Can you believe I’ve photographed this crew since big sister was born?

Ellis is ONE! | Sterling, VA Baby Photographer

Happy happy birthday to this sweet little guy!  He came to visit me for his first birthday milestone updates.  He is crawling, pulling to standing, and willing to push chairs around.  He gave me a few smiles that he and his mama had to work for.  He absolutely loved that he had balloons at his session, was intrigued by his cupcake, made a really nice mess, and most of all, really loved his splash time at the end of the session.

It Snowed in March, look at What we did.

2018 marks the coldest start to spring I can remember.  After barely snowy, but still wet winter, it snowed on the second day of spring.  I’m not usually one to rush out into the snow–but if I can take photos, that changes my perspective about the cold stuff.

With the snow prediction looming the day before, there was time to arrange a quick maternity photo session for our snow day.  It was cold, of course–but worth it!

[Evie] 14 Days New | Sterling, VA Newborn Photographer

It was so great to meet this little darling and see her big brother.  He was so proud of her and when she fell asleep, swaddled and snuggly, he declared she was “happy.”  Brother knows best!  Evie was such a little snuggle bug and I’ll agree, she seemed quite happy.

We tried out a new family setup for the family portion of their session and I just LOVE it!  It was so perfect for wiggly 2 year old bro.

First Birthday Photos, Korean Dol | Northern VA Photographer

Logan visited with his parents for some first birthday photos recently.  I love when I get to see my newborns for milestone updates and just how they’ve grown into their personalities.  This little man is a busy little bee!  We pulled out ALL of the tricks for his very serious faces. His mama brought along his Hanbok from his first birthday party, or his Dol. and I am so thrilled we were able to document this sweet tradition for them.

Max, An Adoption Story |Northern VA Newborn Photographer

Meet Maximino!  He was the sweetest little guy and came to visit me when he was 18 days old.  I met Max’s parents a few years ago through mutual friends and through those friends, I learned that they had begun the wonderful and wait filled process of adoption.

I was so thrilled when Max’s parents reached out to me for photos.  His mom sent me a message when Max was 13 days old.  She shared, that after years of trying to become parents, they finally adopted their little boy.  We, of course, found time to get them in as soon as possible!

How perfect is this little guy?  He is so huggable and I didn’t want to let him leave the studio!

If you have adopted a baby, or are in the process of adoption, I would love to photograph your newest family member for you!  Virginia adoptions are not finalized until baby is 10 days old.  Please don’t worry about timelines and email me!  I will do whatever I can to make sure your sweet little one has newborn photos.

Baby B’s Newborn Photos | Loudoun County Newborn Photographer

This little guy and his sister are 20 months apart and I absolutely love their newborn family photos.  Last year I began offering baby-only mini sessions for the client who wants photos of just their baby.  I always encourage my clients to consider newborn family photos.  This is the only time of life that your teeny tiny baby will fit in your hands.

Having 2 siblings close in age never changes my thoughts on the importance of newborn family photos.  Having 2 under 2 certainly seems like a lot to juggle, especially in the first 14 days.  However, there is nothing sweeter than sibling love.  This may just be the beginning, but that is all the reason to document the beginning of their time together, too.

I have photographed siblings as close in age as 13 months apart and these two are not my first pair with a 20 month age gap!  I’m a professional. Not only am I a spare set of hands during your session (Did you know, I change all of baby’s diapers while they’re here?), but I have a strategy for making this easier for you that I share before your session too.  Additionally, all photos are taken with age appropriate poses and props with the safety of both babies in mind.

I was so thrilled when this family reached out to me for newborn photos.  As it turns out, they live up the hill from me and we had never met before!  It was so great to photograph this sweet little guy and his family.
