Fairfax Newborn Photography | Baby Ben

Goodbye winter and hello spring. Finally! It’s been a busy past couple of months, though things have been sparse here on the blog. I’ll share more about my trip to Texas in a bit, but first I wanted to jump into spring with this sweet newborn session of baby Ben. What can I say? Newborns are cute in their tiny-fingers-and-toes way. And Ben is definitely one of those cuties with adoring parents and a very excited (doggy) sister.

Being a mom has definitely changed my perspective on newborn and baby sessions…I now know first-hand the crazy excitement/exhaustion/wonder/amazement/ that comes with being a new parent. Those first few weeks are especially an amazing time of adjustment–and yet they’re incredibly special, too. I was honored to photograph Ben and his proud parents (and of course Shelby the pup, too) during this wonderful time.

Here are a few favorites from their session.

Abbey - Haha! Yes Nancy – photographic evidence of Dan’s existence! You have a great daughter-in-law – she really worked her magic and created some great moments :)

Nancy - Wonderful!! Finally I get to see that Dan really does exist. Ben is adorable and the photos with Shelby foreshadow a great friendship in the future.

Hotel Le Meridien Wedding | Erin and Joe

As I edited the photos from Erin and Joe’s wedding in the last few weeks, I found myself smiling at my computer screen…a lot. It’s easy to see why, too. Erin and Joe’s wedding day was truly filled with joy–and no cold, wintry weather could take that away.

Surrounded by family and friends at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in DC, Erin and Joe exchanged vows and later celebrated at the snazzy Hotel Le Meridien in Arlington, VA. Their genuine love and affection is contagious, and all who call them friends are blessed. I so enjoyed capturing the joy of their day.

A big congratulations to Erin and Joe. Here are just a few of my favorite moments.

Dan Speicher - Beautiful work. Love that first shot!

Cours Dessin - Wonderful serie! well done.

Maryland Wedding Photography | Kaitlin and Phillipe

Before 2013 gets away with me, I want to share a lovely winter wedding I photographed at the end of 2012. Kaitlin and Phillipe met as kids in Sunday school at church, so they knew each other growing up. But their love and affection for each other really didn’t grow until they were older and reconnected over shared interests. Their wedding day was filled with joy and many sweet moments with their family and friends celebrating their marriage with them. It was a wonderful way for me to end last year’s wedding season.

Congratulations to Kaitlin and Phillipe. Here are a few of my favorite moments from their day.
