DC Fall Family Photos | Hope’s Family

I often have parents tell me “Every picture I try to take of my kid is blurry!” As a mother of two little ones, I totally get that. Fortunately, I have some experience taking photos of fast-moving subjects…and I love taking photos that parents wish they could have.

I recently photographed sweet (and busy!) Hope and her parents at the National Arboretum.  I love photographing kids this age because they haven’t learned how to smile on command yet…so every smile I do capture is genuine! And Hope has a beautiful smile!

Here are some of my favorites from this family session.


DC Senior Portrait | Ashli

While I mostly photograph little ones and their families, I do enjoy the occasional change of photographing a bit “older” subject.  It’s remarkably easy when they can sit still!:)This last week I got to photograph Ashli for her senior photos on a most perfect fall day at the National Arboretum.

Taking time to document this exciting time in life is really special.  Having senior portraits is often the first time you have a photo session of just yourself! And I don’t need to write it because you can see it, but Ashli is a beautiful person…both inside and out. Here are just a few of my favorites from this session.

Yards Park Family Photos | Ethan’s Growing Family

The wonderful family photo sessions continue. I recently met up with little Ethan’s family at Yards Park in DC to take some photos before Ethan becomes a big brother in a few months.  He is an adorable little guy, and I’m sure he will be a great big brother when the time comes.

Yards Park is one of those neat places in DC that has a lot to offer for parents and kids (and dogs!). I enjoyed capturing this sweet family together–here are a few of my favorites.

National Arboretum Family Photos | The “K” Family

The colors of fall are incredible, which is one reason why I love this season of family photo sessions. I recently met up with a lovely family at the National Arboretum in DC for pictures, and the light and leaves were just perfect.

I so enjoyed capturing the affection between these adorable sisters and their parents. Here are just a few favorites from this session.
