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.

Maryland Newborn Photography | Baby Cole

This new guy is quite adorable, and I so enjoyed photographing him with his parents and four-legged “big sister” Sammie.  Cole doesn’t know it now, but I think Sammie will be a great playmate when he gets bigger. He surely is surrounded by love.

Congratulations to the new family! Here are just a few of my favorite images from this newborn session.

DC Family Lifestyle Photography | Theo, Ethan, and Fynn’s Family

I recently spent a fun-filled morning with a sweet family in DC photographing them just hanging out and being together on a Saturday morning.  This was an especially enjoyable session as I had photographed the youngest little guy’s birth a few months prior.  He sure had grown!

Theo and Ethan are great playmates (OK, I’m sure they do their fair bit of fighting as siblings do…but they also know how to jump around together and have fun), and I’m sure Fynn will be quite happy to join them when he gets bigger.

I know I’ve said it before, but family lifestyle sessions are some of my favorite kind of sessions to do–the photos grow in meaning and significance as time goes on and kids grow up.  It’s easy to forget routines and the little nuances of your children as they change. That’s why I love to document families in the moment.

And here are just a few of my favorite moments from this session.

Family Lifestyle Session | Vivian and Eleanor’s Family

In the midst of the busy “little years” of raising children, it’s hard to grasp just how quickly that time does pass. Taking traditional family portraits on a regular basis is one way to see how your children have grown, but one of my favorite ways to document families is with lifestyle photography.  I just recently spent a morning with two sweet little girls and their parents doing just that–taking photos of the fun craziness that is life.

Vivian and Eleanor are like many sisters–they play some together, but they’ve also got their own agendas. I loved seeing their unique personalities and great imaginations.  What a sweet treasure to have a sister. (And I can’t forget the sweet pup–Tank! He’s a dear member of the family, too).

Here are a few of my favorites from this family lifestyle session.
