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.

Virginia Newborn Photography | Baby Brennan

I have such a sweet newborn and family to share on the blog today. This little fella is lucky because he already has two big brothers who are ready to play with him (as soon as he can!). I am sure they will have many adventures together (and let’s admit it…probably drive their parents a bit crazy from time to time).

Baby Brennan is an adorable little guy…and just a week old in these photos! I’m so glad I could capture this precious time in his family’s life. Those early days go by quickly! At least, when you look back they seem to have passed quickly!

A big congratulations to big brothers Chandler and Graham and their parents. Here are just a few of my favorites from this newborn session.


Virginia Newborn Photos | Baby Ella Barlow

Hello spring…hello new little baby Ella Barlow.  I recently met this precious little one with her parents, and I’m excited to share some darling newborn photos.

I know I’ve said it before, but the newborn stage is so fleeting (and your mind is often so fuzzy!) that having a newborn session is a great way to document this sweet time.  I’m so glad I was able to take these photos of little Ella Barlow.

Here are a few of my favorites from the session. (And check out her coordinated nursery…LOVE!)
