How stunning is this glowing mama to be?! I so enjoy the anticipation and excitement of maternity photo sessions. Such a special time to capture in pictures. And Sew Trendy makes the best maternity dresses for photos, and the green was amazing on Karlie! A perfect choice! So glad we had a warmish winter day in Washington, DC for these beautiful photos of Karlie and her husband. Karlie, you are stunning, and such a joy to photograph! I can’t wait to meet your little one! Any guesses on whether she’s having a boy or girl? It will be a surprise!
What a joy to capture the 60th wedding anniversary celebration with Nancy and Dick and their family at Marsh Mansion in Heritage Hunt in Gainesville, VA! What they wanted most was pictures with all their kids and grandkids! A fantastic idea! And everyone wearing shades of blue works so well for coordinating with a group.
The daughters planned a family day together, starting with a photo session, and cake cutting. (Dinner in Alexandria later.) And they brought lots of pictures from over the years to reminisce together. Nancy brought her wedding gown (gorgeous!), going away outfit and a bridesmaid’s dress from their wedding! So much fun to see! Such a happy family and happy day!
Family Christmas pictures look best outside. I love the coordinating family outfits built around navy. These pictures work for Christmas cards, but all year round too. And blue looks great on everyone. I always recommend wearing blues when coordinating group or family pictures. Three teenagers, these siblings, twins and a little brother, were good sports and I know their mom was happy to have updated family pictures. Busy schedules and two off at boarding school certainly made it challenging to schedule pictures this year. But it’s worth it!
Sweet newborn baby Virginia! So so loved by her adoring big sister, who wanted to be in every picture, and the rest of her family. I’ve so enjoyed photographing all these Arlington babies, they are all such smiley kids! It’s always such a fun honor to capture the first few days of a baby’s life. They are only tiny infants for such a short time. And these sleepy baby pictures are a beautiful art that freezes a moment in time for a family with a new addition. Such a precious time.
I’ve been photographing Claire for 8 years now. How time flies! It’s been so much fun to watch her grow into a big 4th grader. She’s a photographer’s dream with her expressive blue eyes that communicate so much in pictures. I always enjoy catching up with her family and creating new portraits for them. Here are this year’s edition of family photos taken in Washington, DC:
