DC Maternity Photography | Caitlin and Charlie

There is so much beauty in this blog post…so much joy and excitement, too. Caitlin and Charlie are expecting their first little one in just a few short weeks, and I will hopefully be there to capture that incredible event.

But first we met up recently to take some beautiful belly photos and to document this time of waiting for baby.  Maternity sessions are some of my favorite to photograph because the moms-to-be are so beautiful–and I must say Caitlin is especially so with her radiant smile. I’m so looking forward to meeting their little one…but for now, here are some of my favorite photos from this DC maternity session.

DC Family Portrait Photography | The “K” Family

The more families I photograph, the more I realize how sweet and unique each individual family dynamic is. Or to put it more simply–I love capturing a family’s personality! This recent family portrait session in DC was no exception. I so enjoyed laughing and spending a (humid!) evening with these amazing parents and their four kids.

And is often the case…some of my favorite images are the ones that are less “scripted.” We certainly had some in this session…ones that I feel in some very small way pause time and give a tiny glimpse of the big love in this family. But enough words…let’s get to the photos. Here are a few of my favorites!

 

And finally–I must give a shout out to the artist in this family…Tracy is a wonderful artist whose mixed-media work can be admired and collected from her Etsy shop.

Maryland Family Lifestyle Photography | William’s Family

I love the toddler stage–those slightly unsteady legs and the endless curiosity. There’s always something new to discover, and it’s a joy to see a little person developing their personality. Recently I spent time with such an adorable little guy and his parents, capturing a weekend morning hanging out and having fun.  A family lifestyle session is the perfect way to make those life stages stand still–if only in photographs. I highly encourage families to consider it when they think about updating their family photos.

It’s clear to see William has quite the imagination and loves playing and exploring. I so enjoyed photographing him and his family (and let’s not forget the cat Smudge). Also…if you’re a Star Wars fan, you must check out the coolest kid’s rocking thing I’ve ever seen–a wooden Tauntaun!

Here are a few of my favorites from this session.

DC Newborn Photography | Baby Lilah

This precious little newborn already has a sweet older brother who loves to shower her with kisses. Getting a new sibling can be tough for little ones–you never quite know how they’ll react when Mom and Dad are holding someone else in their arms.  But it’s definitely a joy to see a new big brother or sister welcome the newest member of the family.

I so enjoyed capturing little Lilah with her family, especially because I got to document big brother Jackson’s entrance into the world not too long ago.  A big congratulations to the family!

Here are just a few of my favorite images form this newborn session.
