Jacksonville Florida Beach Portraits – Lenox, Lincoln and London

How time does fly!  These are my precious nephews and niece – from our August portrait session.  Long overdue, I know!

Here’s Lenox at 7.5 (Lincoln is 5.5 and London is 2)

And the brothers, Lenox and Lincoln.  His entire life Lincoln has put his hand on Lenox’s leg when they sit next to each other for pictures.  I’m sure he doesn’t even realize he does it.  What a sweet bond they have.

London has many sides. All the pictures above show her sweet side.  But she’s a bit sassy too.

These are her standard poses.  Wonder what she’ll think of them in 20 years?

And since she attends an exercise class with her mommy (to watch and play) she sometimes drops for a few pushups…

or squats, without any warning.

And she’s rarely found without her babies, usually in a stroller.

And most often with multiple babies, and a purse, and a cell phone.  Such a good mommy already!

Each time I visit, Lincoln asks when his next photo shoot is, so another day we went to the Cummer gardens for pictures just of him. He’s really learning how to turn on the charm for the camera – to smile with his eyes.  He’s always been a challenge to photograph – to have his real personality shine through.  But it’s finally happening and I’m so glad to capture his sweet smiles – especially before he loses any of those cute baby teeth!

Washington DC Family Photographer

I had the honor of photographing this wonderful family a few months ago and with a Lifestyle Portrait Session we had time for all the various combinations of parents and siblings along with individual portraits.  Taking time to let the kids personalities come out is always fun, along with showing those sweet relationships between siblings, and parents and children, that will continue to grow over the years.  Here are just a few of my favorites.

Jacksonville FL Family Photos – Jacob and Noah

Jacob and Noah have moved to Florida.  I’m always sad when kids I’ve photographed since birth move away, I miss documenting how much they’ve changed year by year, and it’s always fun to catch up with the family. My friendship with this family preceded the boys so I’ve missed seeing them often.

So, it was even more special that we were able to fit in a mini-session before the kids grew any more – and have pictures for their Christmas card.  They drove up to Jacksonville from Tampa for Thanksgiving weekend.  It was wonderful to reconnect with good friends, plus Jacob and my nephew, Lenox, are the same age and they enjoyed renewing their friendship after meeting a few times in DC over their lives.

Georgetown Engagement Photographer – Samantha and Nick

A beautiful engaged couple on a beautiful autumn day in Georgetown is picture perfect.  Samantha and Nick are such sweet compliments to each other, you can see the love between them in their eyes.  I so enjoyed capturing their relationship during their engagement portrait session and can’t wait for their wedding next fall in Washington, DC!

Fairfax VA Autumn Family Portrait – Nate and Trent

I feel like a broken record, but it’s amazing how much kids grow and change in a year!  Since I don’t see them every day like their parents do, I can really see the change.  I enjoyed catching up with this sweet family on a gorgeous fall day.  I am so glad they make family pictures a priority, it’s so much fun to see them every fall.  I know in years to come they will value looking back on these days when the boys were young even more and be so thankful they made the effort to have family pictures taken.  It’s an honor to have little clients that I watch grow from babies to big kids.

The other advantage of regular photo session is that the kids learn the routine and the family pictures turn out better every year.  Lots of great options for the Christmas cards this year.
