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!

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!

[Evie] 14 Days New | Sterling, VA Newborn Photographer

It was so great to meet this little darling and see her big brother.  He was so proud of her and when she fell asleep, swaddled and snuggly, he declared she was “happy.”  Brother knows best!  Evie was such a little snuggle bug and I’ll agree, she seemed quite happy.

We tried out a new family setup for the family portion of their session and I just LOVE it!  It was so perfect for wiggly 2 year old bro.

[Carter] 10 Days Old | Northern VA Newborn Photographer

Carter came to see me for newborn photos and brought along his mom, dad, big sister, Catie and his two angel twin sisters Abby and Brooke.  Big sister is only 20 months older than her new baby brother.  Sweating a bit during a session with 2 kids under  2 is pretty much a given, even though they were both pretty much rockstars.  Catie gave us a little bit of a workout but it was nothing a little “Daniel Tiger” and raisin snack break couldn’t remedy.

You may remember Catie as the rainbow baby from just under a 2 years ago.  The angel bears from her newborn session came along to Carter’s as well so that we could include this family’s twin sisters in their session.

Let’s talk about cute new Carter for a minute though.  First.  His hair is amazing.  It matches his mama’s so perfectly and even has the most perfect little highlights.  He is a pretty chill little guy and was happy to sleep during his entire session.  Little man is already used to the sound of his big sister and wasn’t easily disturbed. He was swaddled for most of his session for safety.  This guy’s clavicle broke at birth.  Birth injuries are never expected, but with a photographer well versed in Newborn safety, sessions can be modified and photos can be taken.

Their mama and I met at a March of Dimes, family team mentor meeting just about 2 years ago, an organization dear to our hearts. Sometimes life puts friends on your path and I am so thankful this family has become a part of my family’s life.

[Magnolia] 7 Days Old | Northern VA Newborn Photographer

I mentioned in this baby girl’s maternity blog that I couldn’t wait to learn her name, and it is just as sweet as I hoped.  First, IT’S A GIRL! This family decided to learn baby’s gender at birth.  I just love her sweet name, Magnolia.  As soon as mom shared, I headed to the craft store.  Because when your name is Magnolia, I put you in Magnolias.

Magnolia is pretty lucky to have a second mama in her proud big sister.  Brother who is pretty stoic in front of my camera historically, was pretty happy to share his baby sister too.  Then we have mom and dad who are the most adorable couple ever.  It is such an honor when families book me once, but to see you guys 3 times in less than a year makes me feel so special.

Enjoy some of the photos from this session.

West Family Photos | Northern Virginia Newborn Photographer

These sweet cousins came to visit for lots of family photos.  We had a long session with sibling photos, cousin photos, and mardi gras themed cake smash photos!  A 4 month old, 1 year old and almost 3 year old in one day and we all survived. These little babes were so sweet. Big man was the most smiley 3-year-old I have ever met. He made my job so easy!  Please take a look at some of my favorites from the day!
