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!

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.
This sweet little sunflower came back to visit me for her first birthday photos! She makes the sweetest little conversational baby sounds and loved pointing at everything in the studio. She gave us some quick smiles mixed in with lots of serious faces.
Mama requested a sunflower session because her baby shower was sunflower themed. This was so much fun to create! Mama also had a few other requests for her session that we certainly worked in, but I will leave it to her to share the rest!
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!

This mommy and me pair are absolutely gorgeous and perfectly styled. I love momma’s hair and amazing dimples. Baby girl is the perfect little cherub baby with wispy hair and sweet skin tones.
When mom booked her session she had a vision in mind. White and flowy dress with lacy details. A session in the water with her baby girl, and a few nursing images. As luck would have it, my #1 spot for water photos was too wet from several days worth of rain leading up to the session. Never fear though because my back up spot is GORGEOUS, just sometimes too dry in the summer. The rain helped! We shifted our session location and it turned out perfectly! The dress mom found was beautiful. Simple with the perfect amount of lace detail at the bottom. I actually provided the sweet little onsie that her little girl is wearing. I keep a small collection of studio props and was thrilled when she selected one I hadn’t used yet!

I have had the pleasure of photographing this little lady and her family since her mama was pregnant with her. Take a look at her baby plan recap and don’t miss the most recent photos from her first birthday session too.
Her big brothers spent some time of their family maternity session exploring the woods and searching for frogs.
The whole family also visited the studio for Newborn + Family photos after Gwen was born. Mama asked me to stack her siblings, so we did!
Little Ms. Cupcake also came to see me for her 6 month sitter milestone as well as holiday photos.
One baby sometimes isn’t enough and her relatives were in town for the Thanksgiving holiday so they came along for an extended family session too!
Gwen was crawling at 9 months, and standing assisted, mama was sure to document those milestones!
The real reason you’re here though is because Gwen turned ONE! She came in for her 12 month photos and has grown from standing assisted to assisted walking. This little lady wanted to push mini chairs and stools all over the studio for her session! Her mama is a baker and brought along a smash cake as well as an adorable cupcake banner made by Creigh-ations. She knew what to do with her cake too and was happy to have it all to herself!
