Alper Family Photos | Sterling VA Family Photographer

I first met the Alper Family last year during a holiday mini-session and I’m so happy that they returned this year for updated family photos.

What made the photos even more special and touching was their inclusion of their angel baby, Matthew in all the images.

Let’s talk about how photogenic this family is! Seriously, the parents are both gorgeous in their own right and then their children with the beautiful hair, eyes and matching smiles. Can we just put them on a magazine cover already?

The children were also so well behaved – I got some amazing individual shots of them too!

The flowers on the dress and in her hair, on top of the Peter Pan collar… so cute!

Caputo Family Photos | Sterling VA Family Photographer

Sometimes I meet a family and it is instant sparks. I thought the Caputo family were just AMAZING.  Mom warned me that her toddler doesn’t usually smile for the camera, but it was my lucky day and I got smiles the entire session.

The day was a little tricky due to the weather forecast, which called for rain, but we chanced it and my luck held. We got GREAT weather and beautiful photos.

Look at these two sisters? I love their bond! So sweet!

Did you know that you can order my photos and put it on canvas or print it on high quality photo paper? The Caputo’s ordered a stunning 24×36 canvas along with two other fine are mounted prints.

Cole’s First Birthday! | Sterling VA Milestone Family Photographer

I may be biased, because Cole is my best friend’s son… but he is one of the cutest babies I’ve photographed. I mean, look at his big brown doe eyes. How sweet can you get?

I’ve known Millie for over a decade and as one of my best friends, we’ve been through it all. She’s been there for my pregnancies and births of my babies, and I’m happy to say I’ve been with it through hers as well. Seeing her as mom has been so wonderful and knowing that I’ll see Cole grow up and be part of my life is the best.

Happy First Birthday Cole!! The Romaezis love you!

Check out the fierce face from Cole!

James Family, Mommy and Me Photos | Sterling VA Family Photographer

This Mommy and Me duo were scheduled to be an outdoor session, but due to unfortunate spring rain and rescheduling to a car accident (they are fine!!!) – we moved the session into my studio.

Despite it all, how beautiful are these two?

The relationship between these two just makes my heart melt! I love how her daughter stares at Mom with such intensity and LOVE. And that kiss…lick?  Baby smooches are the best. This photo session couldn’t have gone any better.

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.

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!
