Capitol Hill Family Photos | Ben’s Family

Here’s a confession: sometimes when I edit sessions my mouth begins to hurt because I’m smiling so much.  It’s true…I can’t help but smile back at the laughing, joyful faces on my computer screen.  This was one of those sessions.

Ben is a completely adorable little guy.  I met up with his family at Garfield Park on Capitol Hill in DC last week, and I so enjoyed spending time with them taking fall photos.

Here are a few of my favorites from this family session.  See if you can’t help but smile when you see them, too!

Nancy - I tried to pick a favorite, but I couldn’t. All capture the joy this family has in being together. And yes, I am smiling!😊

Apple Picking Family Photos | Priscilla, Josiah, and Family

Having a fall birthday, I think I’ve always been a bit partial to this season of the year.  And living in the DC area means I actually get to experience fall in all its golden colors and fun activities. One of those experiences I didn’t have as a child growing up in Texas is apple picking.

I didn’t know what I was missing!  And what a picturesque setting for family photos. I recently photographed this dear family (whom I’m sure you’ve seen on the blog before) at the lovely Stribling Orchard in Markham, VA. While there are certainly closer orchards to DC, this part of Virginia is incredibly beautiful with the rolling hills and trees.  It was definitely worth the drive.

Priscilla is so darling…and grown-up! She adores her baby brother, Josiah.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from this family session.

Fall Family Portraits | Baby Olivia and Family

It’s fall y’all (yes I am from Texas originally), and that means fall family photos! To kick off this season of family portraits, I actually traveled to Houston, TX to visit a dear friend and take pictures of her new baby girl and her precious family.

Baby Olivia is a sweet little doll, and she’s got some great big brothers who I’m sure will take good care of her as she gets older. I am so thankful for my friend, Kara, and that we’ve gotten to experience so many life stages together (starting in high school!).

A big congratulations to her and her husband, James, on their new little girl. Here’s a few of my favorites from their family photo session.

DC Baby Photography | Penelope and Savannah

What’s cuter than one adorable baby? Two adorable babies!  I recently met up with Penelope and Savannah (who are cousins) and their moms (Caitlin and Maria) and their grandma for a fun photo session.

Living in the DC area, I’ve met a lot of families who live away from their extended family (like we do), and I think it’s a great idea to schedule a photo session when family is in town.  Those sweet moments together should be remembered and cherished, and a photo session is a great way to do that.

Ok, back to baby cuteness…here’s a few of my favorites from this session. Savannah is the older baby…Penelope is the younger one.
