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.

If you are looking for a family photographer in the Northern Virginia area, I would love to work with you. Family photos should be reserved 2 months in advance, further out if during peak times of spring or fall. Please contact me for specific availability and a free consultation.

It was so nice to meet and photograph this family of 5!  The weather was gorgeous, fall was just beginning and the sun was beautifully perfect for their session.



Fresh 48 Photos, Virginia Hospital Center

There is nothing better than a fresh baby!  It was a true privilege to photograph this sweet little lady at less than 24 hours old.  Babies this age need their mama so I was thrilled that baby M let me take a few photos of just her before she wanted her mama back to eat, and eat, and eat!

“I just can’t believe she is here and she’s mine.” Your baby’s first few days are full of so much adjustment that they go by in a snap.  Fresh 48 sessions can be done for hospital, or home births and are a great way to document the moments when your family, or baby’s siblings meet him or her for the first time.

I was absolutely hooked on Baby M’s curly hair and the cute little headband her mommy picked for her.  She stretched her sweet little legs and feet throughout her session, taking full advantage of the space she now has to do so!

The C Family | Northern Virginia Family Photographer

This family of 4 was incredibly sweet.  At 5 and 1, their babies are the same age as my own and I know that show well!  Thankfully they were far easier to photograph than my own family and we came away with several great images.

I can’t wait to see which photos they choose for their holiday cards, and to hang on their walls.

If you are looking for a family photographer in the Northern Virginia area including Loudoun, Fairfax, Sterling, or Leesburg, I would love to work with you.  It is important to book your session at least 6 weeks in advance to ensure the most availability.  Please contact me for more details.

The D Family | Northern VA Family Photographer

It was so fun to photograph these sweet friends of ours from my sons preschool days.  We last met for family maternity photos this spring before little Charlotte was born.  I remember that Kate was looking forward to becoming a big sister.

Now that baby Charlotte has arrived, these photos were their first as a family of four and everyone was just perfect.  Kate was happy to pose for photos, Charlotte fit perfectly into the cute little box I brought along and mom and dad helped with the smile making. Sunset photos at the end of sessions is becoming more routine.  It is a great way for kids to get all of the wiggles out, and I am able to take a few lifestyle photos of the kids as they play.

I hope the four of you and your families love these photos forever.




[Briggs] 7 Days Old |Northern VA Newborn Photographer

Oh baby Briggs.  It was so great to meet this little man.  If his newborn photos have anything to do with it, this dude is going to be quite the all star.  Briggs was such a sweetie and loved to be swaddled.  He did let me get a few pictures with his arms and legs exposed, but we had to work a little harder for those.

I first met his mama and papa at their maternity session a few weeks ago where we included a sign his mama and grandpa made for him.  It was so fun to include it in his newborn session as well.

I can’t wait for you to see these photos!

If you are looking for a newborn photographer in the DC Metro area, I would love to help you.  I serve Loudoun, Fairfax, and Montgomery County as well as Washington DC.  I still have 1-2 October dates available for a newborn session and am currently booking through January.

Donohue Family Maternity | Northern Virginia Photographer

This session was so much fun and quite literally a breeze.  I am beginning to think that 5-6 year old girls are the most cooperative photo subjects, hands down.  This little miss brought her mom, dad and baby-sister-to-be along for their photo session.  She was so photo ready.  Full of twirling in her twirl dress and even had some of her own poses in mind.  She basically did my job for me.

I think the highlight for everyone was making the trees snow at the end.  Because who doesn’t like falling flower petals. (Unless you have somehow parked your car under one, but let’s keep this post full of whimsy.)

I am so excited for this family to welcome this new little girl.  Two things are for sure, she is very loved, and big sis has practiced her baby kisses.
