Virginia Newborn Photography | Baby Lucy

In honor of Mother’s Day yesterday, I thought it fitting to post a sweet newborn session. I had the privilege of photographing this family when they welcomed their first several years ago. So it was especially sweet to document their newest addition, baby Lucy.

It was fun to see how much Ben had grown and how he was taking to being a big brother now. And it looks like Shelby the dog is taking it all in stride, too.

Here’s a few favorites from this Fairfax newborn session:


Maryland Newborn Photography | Baby Rhys

Spring is truly here with lovely blooms, fresh green leaves on the trees, and birds serenading in the morning.  I think it must be a nice time to have a baby–the weather is just getting warm enough to take walks without having to be completely bundled up

And speaking of new babies, I photographed Rhys back in March with his big brother Cole and parents.  I love newborn sessions like this–the older sibling(s) make for fun and unpredictable interactions. Here are a few favorites from this Cheverly, Maryland newborn session.

DC Baby Photography | Will is Nine Months

Well so much for an early spring! The cherry blossoms are only now coming out. We got a teaser back in February for baby Will’s nine month photo session. It’s hard to believe these photos were from a month ago! Since we were assuming the weather would be cold, we scheduled the session for inside the National Museum of Art in D.C., but with the sun shining and the air warm, we found a great spot outside for more pictures.

Here are a few favorites from Will’s portrait session. I love his grin! It’s been fun capturing his first year, and I can’t believe the next time I see him he’ll be a year!


Cherry Blossoms…Already??

Yes! It’s the first of March, and they’re already predicting the peak bloom for the cherry blossom around the Tidal Basin here in D.C.  This mild winter is shaping up to welcome an early spring!

So, with cherry blossoms, that means the return of Cherry Blossom Mini-Sessions! If possible I think I love the look of the cherry blossoms maybe just a tiny bit more than colorful fall foliage. Or maybe it’s just that it coincides with spring (or in this case “spring”), and I’m always ready to be done with winter.

When will the blossoms be reaching peak bloom? The forecast calls for March 14th-17th. So, to be safe, I’m scheduling this year’s mini-sessions on Saturday, March 18th. This could change if they somehow seem like they’ll be out even earlier…but hopefully we’ll still have blooms on the 18th.

And, since I have found those early morning light sessions to be especially lovely, I’m starting the sessions at 7:30am. I know getting kids out of the door super early is no easy thing, but perhaps you’re a couple and consider yourselves morning people? I promise that early morning light won’t disappoint!

Contact me today to reserve your session!

Amanda - Did you do it this weekend? It was freezing so I’m just wondering if you moved it and had any open slots

Marisa - Hello,

Do you have any sessions left for March 18? Please let me know, thanks!
