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!)

Virginia Newborn Photography | Baby Jackson

As the snow was steadily falling last week, I got to spend some time with baby Jackson (“Jack”) and his big sister Olivia and their wonderful parents.  He doesn’t know it yet, but Jack has a sweet and spunky sister who will be lots of fun to play with when he gets bigger.  For now, Olivia loves to hold her little brother…and check out all the baby gear that’s reappeared in the house.

A big congratulations to this family. Here are a few of my favorite photos from Jack’s newborn session.
