End of summer family portraits have many up-sides (even if the heat is sometimes unreal in the summer here in Northern Virginia). Wildflowers in bloom, are one of the perks to summer portraits. I get giddy when clients specifically ask for a session at the end of August, or September, because I know I can offer photos in this beautiful field to them!
This is the second time I have seen mama and her little man this year! This time they brought papa along for family photos before he heads to Germany. I’m so glad I was able to take photos of little Connor’s family all together before his deployment. Double bonus that we got to work in photos for his first birthday.
Happy first Birthday, Connor!

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!
How adorable are these sweet little 3 month old twins? 3 month old milestone sessions focus on your baby’s emerging personality. They can hold up their heads in tummy time, look at the camera and smile. Little mister even laughed at me during his session.
Their mom reached out with the request for a simple, neutral session for her twins. Neutrals are a big favorite here. We are always collecting neutral props for sessions and mixing in different fabric textures. It is incredibly fun to dress up the sweet little babies who visit us. We strive to make it easy for you by providing a collection of age and size appropriate outfits from our favorite handmade prop artists.

Discounted baby plans are also available. It is important to book your milestone session 4-6 weeks in advance. Please contact me for specific availability.
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.
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.

There is nothing better than when my tiny clients get out of the car and tell me “Miss Jamie is my best friend!” Big sis and I go way back to her newborn days. If you’ve followed me for a bit, you have no doubt seen them before.
As a matter of fact, I last photographed them 6 months ago when baby brother joined the crew!
It was so great to see these four again.
I met the sweetest pair of babies a few months ago. I am so very happy for these mamas and their two babies! Heather and I met for coffee to plan their session. She told me that she had a vision for a mermaid and a fisherman and in that instant I just knew it would be so fun to create! Of course we also made sure to take some timeless, neutral photos of the twins as well as parent poses for them to hang at home and gift to family.
It took me a while to get to sharing their photos on the blog, but if you follow me on facebook, you have seen some of these already!
