Little Sleepyhead | Northern Virginia Newborn Photographer

This time of year is  frustrating b/c I have TONS of beautiful sessions to blog and no time to do it! I’m forcing my self to share this lovely session today though, and hopefully in time I’ll be able to share more.

This little guy might just be the most mellow baby I have ever photographed!  He was conked out for almost the entire session and never even noticed when I moved him from prop to prop. And just look at how gorgeous he is!

I used my studio lights the entire time b/c it was super dark and dreary out. I think I may just be obsessed with them now!

Joy | Northern Virginia Family Photographer

This family is so dynamic and fun loving; they were truly a joy to photograph! I try not to overly direct things during a photo session because once that happens all the spontaneity and genuine family interaction is lost. These beautiful twin sisters have such an amazing bond and they are so free spirited. I just let them have fun and be themselves and I think the result is relaxed yet beautiful family portraits. And can we just discuss their gorgeous hair?! I love photographing red heads and twins, so this was pretty much a jackpot for me!

I just love this family. Mama hired me for the Baby’s First Year plan and our first session was her GORGEOUS baby shower. I could tell right away that she was going to make the best mother. I was right. She and her husband are already so in love with their adorable baby boy. Even their first “baby”, their yellow lab, loves the new addition! I can’t wait to see them again soon for their holiday photos.

This little guy is torn between two teams already. I wonder which one he’ll choose as his fav one day.

I could not love this session more. This family is SO beautiful, clearly, but they are also the sweetest!  I became fast friends with their little girl, who is so beyond adorable. At one point she came over and sat on my lap while I was taking photos. Love her!  She is going to make such an amazing big sister! I can’t wait to meet the new addition soon!

This sweet girl is the third child in her family, and I have had the honor of photographing all three of them as babies.  Though they aren’t pictured, she looks so much like them and they are just as gorgeous. Just look at how lovely she is with her dark hair and delicate little features.  She slept well for me, but when she was awake she was sooo calm and mellow. I could have snuggled her all day.
