Alexandria Newborn Photographer – Identical Twin Boys – Hayes and Finley

I love catching up with my wedding clients, especially when there’s the excitement of newborn identical twin boys to photograph!  And so fun to see big brother, Everett, again who has grown up so much since his one year old photo session a year ago.  He loves his letters, as you’ll see he brought handfuls to hold onto for pictures with his baby brothers.  These three boys will have so much fun growing up together!

McLean VA Twins Newborn Pictures – Austin and Connor

Double the sweetness!  Theses adorable fraternal twin brothers were so good for their first baby pictures!  They and big brother are a handsome bunch, aren’t  they?!  I always enjoy photographing newborn babies, and the preciousness of the short time they are so tiny.  And twins are a special photo session for sure!  It’s so fun to see how they already have their own personalities, right from the start!

Sisters Under the Cherry Blossoms – Washington DC Photographer

How sweet are these blue-eyed sisters in their smocked pale pink dresses under the cherry trees in Washington, DC? So glad we had just one not so windy warm day to squeeze in this photo session, as the blossoms were falling, so little sister has similar portraits to big sister’s cherry blossom pictures two years ago.   Aren’t these girls just the cutest?

Belmont Country Club Wedding – Snow for Spring – Congratulations Laura and Bix!

Spring snow didn’t chill the warmth surrounding Laura and Bix on their wedding day.  Their entire wedding party was family which made it an especially tight group.  And so much fun!  May I also add that having your brother in law officiate your wedding makes it quite personal, sweet, memorable, and funny at times too – especially if he starts the ceremony with a self composed rap!  I know so many memories for a lifetime were made.  Congratulations Laura and Bix, may you live happily ever after!

Cherry Blossom Art – Photography in Washington DC

I’ve had several requests for my Washington, DC cherry blossom pictures as framed art. You can find a gallery of my photos and art by going to the client proofs tab above and entering the passcode: ArtbyJan
Prints, framed prints, canvas, art papers, etc. are available.  I’m also happy to suggest what will look best for the space you want to decorate.

P.S. Sadly, many of the trees in these pictures aren’t there any more. Deteriorating conditions at the tidal basin (flooding which is washing away the dirt around the roots), too much foot traffic on the roots and packing the dirt, plus people climbing the trees, and just the age of the trees, has taken it’s toll and each spring fewer of the beautiful gnarled trunks are there.

Note: Cherry blossom photography from between 2005 and 2017 and includes trees on the Tidal Basin, Haines Point and near the Capitol.  They feature the oldest gnarled trunks, the Jefferson Memorial, Tidal Basin and Washington Monument.

The images featured below can be purchased as regular photographs or with the painter effect, as shown below.
