Washington DC Newborn Photographer – Baby Mateo

It took until Mateo was 2.5 weeks old to find a day for his newborn pictures at his Washington, DC home, but oh baby it was worth it!  What a sweet baby boy!  And those cheeks, and back rolls, and long eyelashes!  Babies do not come any cuter!  As his pictures clearly show!  And he’s no little thing at already 11 pounds! His mama is going to be building muscles carrying him around.:)
It works best to photograph babies before they are 3 weeks old as after that they are no longer quite as sleepy and curly like newborns anymore, but even though he was approaching that age, he was a champ and slept so well for me!  Even with a compressed timeline.  I was there for 3.5 hours which I know sounds like a long time, but it goes really fast when you’re waiting for a baby to go to sleep and stopping for feedings, plus setting up and cleaning up.   There is no such thing as a quick newborn shoot!:)
And fun fact, he was due the day BEFORE Bianca – who was born 3 weeks early, and he was 1.5 weeks late.  So they ended up being photographed 6 weeks apart, she in April and he in June when they were both due in early May.  Babies come exactly when THEY are ready!
Such a joy to capture these early days for this sweet family of three!

Washington DC Maternity Photographer – Soon to be Family of Four!

Soon to be Family of Four!  I first photographed this beautiful family when Alex was a newborn and then updated pictures when Alex was a toddler.  Such a treat to catch up with them, as they anticipate the arrival of baby boy #2 very soon, for maternity portraits in Washington, DC!  Alex will be the best big brother!  This photo session was also great practice so he knows me and also knows what to expect (like holding still and smiling) when I come to take the newborn baby pictures.  I know it’s a lot of work with little kids, but the more you take pictures, the more they get the hang of it and the easier it gets!

Such a glowing mother-to-be x2 with such a sweet spirit, I’m so glad she will have these pictures from this season of life when they transition from a family of 3 to 4.  It was actually her husband who contacted me this time and made it happen, as he knew how important it was.  Big points for him!  I’m sure he will train his sons to be so thoughtful!  I can’t wait to meet the new addition their family soon!

Ashburn VA Newborn Photographer – Baby Bianca

Baby Bianca was ready for the world 3 weeks early, just look at those squishy chubby cheeks and blond hair!   And photographed at the best time for baby pictures at a week old.  What an adorable newborn sleepy smile she gave while in the tummy pose wearing dusty rose ruffle shorts.  She’s a cutie!   So glad her parents joined in too, I know those first family pictures while she’s a newborn, will be treasured for a lifetime!

Fairfax County Family Photographer – spring photos

I love keeping up with my clients and their growing families over the years.  The photography relationship with this family started at their friend’s wedding, before their own.  What an honor to be their wedding photographer, their newborn photographer and their family photographer!  It was time for new family pictures and we had a cool spring day that was just perfect.  To let the kids run!  With stops in between for pictures.:)Such a joy to watch these kids grow and to capture that in pictures.

Don’t let another season go by without new pictures of your family!

Newborn photographer Arlington Virginia – Hannah

Some newborn babies just don’t want to miss a moment of their first photo shoot.  Hannah was one of them.  This baby girl with a pleasant personality had a hard time keeping her eyes closed all day in Arlington, Virginia.  She also loved being wrapped so we used that pose to keep her comfy and happy.  Spring flowers, soft colors, pearls, her daddy’s Navy hat and wings, and her gorgeous mother in a beautiful lace gown all made for a lovely collection of pictures of this precious new life.  Such a sweetheart!  And such an honor to be her photographer before and after she was born!
