Gonzales Family and Ethan Turns One | Sterling VA Family Photographer

The Gonzales family is one that is close to my heart. I have photographed them as a family of 3. Last year I had the privilege of photographing birthday boy’s birth .  Not only was he a cute baby but he’s an even cuter 1-year old.  Do you see those adorable dimples he and his sister are so lucky to share?!

Seeing these four all together like this is so much fun for me. Watching families grow in love is one of the best things.

And how lucky is Ethan? His smash cake was made by his very own mom, who is a local baker, with her own bake shop, Pink Polka Dot.

You can tell how much Ethan loves his Airplane (red, white and blue) themed cake. He couldn’t take his eyes off it!

Beaumont Family AND Baby turns One! | Sterling VA Family Photographer

The Cherry Blossom trees are not in full bloom forever, but in the later stages, they leave a beautiful carpet of pink petals on the ground.

The Beaumont family celebrated their daughter’s FIRST birthday by taking photos together. She even wore the cutest white dress with cherry blossoms on it! Can I get that in my size?

Evelyn is ONE!|Sterling VA Baby Photographer

I can’t believe Evelyn is ONE! Not only did I get to celebrate with her, but she brought all her friends with her too! Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet were all there, but Evelyn wasn’t sharing the cake. She got to smash and eat it all on her own.

I remember taking her pretty mama’s maternity photos AND again when Evelyn was a little newborn. I’m so lucky to see her grow into a sweet little girl. Now she’s sporting flower crowns and pigtails. Seriously, where has time gone??

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!
