DC Family Photography | The “J” Family

I love this time of year because it means I get to photograph a lot of wonderful families. And that makes me smile. You know what else makes me smile–editing this family’s photos from their session. I couldn’t stop smiling back at my screen at the joy on their faces!

I recently met up with AJ and Alex and their mom and dad and aunt at the National Arboretum in Washington, D.C.  And lots of laughter ensued.

Here are a few favorites from this family session.

Virginia Birth Photography | Baby Luke

It’s always an incredible honor to photograph a birth, and this one was no exception.  I’ve been photographing this sweet family for several years now, and I was able to be there for their second child’s birth a couple of years ago.  So it was especially meaningful to document their third little one’s birth back in August.

Such a strong mama…an amazing birth and a beautiful baby. Here are a few favorites from this Virginia Hospital Center birth. (Photos shared with permission)


Lindsay - These pictures are amazing!

Cheverly Maryland Newborn Photography | Baby Lake

This beautiful little girl was recently welcomed by an excited big brother and two wonderful parents. Lake is an absolute little doll…so very precious. I was so glad to meet her and take her newborn photos with her family in Cheverly, MD a couple of weeks ago.

Also, her grandma brought the vintage baby scale…how cool is that?

Here are a few of my favorites from this newborn session.

Alexandria VA Baby Photography | Will

It’s amazing how much babies grow in just a few short weeks and months. One of the fun things about doing “a year’s worth” of photo sessions–ie, several photo sessions over one year–is seeing how much the baby has grown in just a few months. I’m looking forward to watching Will grow over the next nine months.

I recently met him and his wonderful parents at their home in Alexandria, Virginia, for the first in our series of baby photo sessions. We began at three moths old for Will–which is a super fun age I think because babies are usually smiling and interacting a lot. Will’s grin didn’t disappoint!

Here are a few of my favorites from this baby session.
