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!

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!

Jameson came to visit for his first birthday photos and had so much fun! I met Jameson as a newborn, and as always, it was so fun to see his little personality now that he is growing up!
Jameson’s mom said his birthday would be wilderness themed, so I pulled together a simply styled setup that would incorporate his theme, but also keep the focus on Jameson and his sweet little personality. We also incorporated an outfit from home, and then, of course–cake!
If you can’t tell. Jameson had SO much fun with his cake. I have yet to meet a baby who could fling cake so well! When he left, it was on the side of my cheek and lens. He dumped his cake off of the cake stand–TWICE–because it is far better suited as a drum. He also grabbed his balloons and had a blast bouncing them off of his head and laughing so hard.
The clean up after his session made it evident that he thoroughly enjoyed himself! See for yourself!
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?

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??

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?
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.
