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!

Washington DC Engagement Photos – Katherine & Chris

Springtime flowers in Washington, DC will take your breath away.  This area is truly the best for seasons and the best for spring engagement pictures!  So glad we’re having some warm days to enjoy the colorful blossoms.  Daffodils are always an early cheerful favorite and this sweet patch on the woodsy path was such a romantic spot.  Katherine and Chris are such a sweet couple – I love the story of how they met when matched as tennis partners at a summer camp both their family’s attended each summer!  It was meant to be!  Different varieties of flowering cherry, magnolia, daffodil, and other garden favorites all made beautiful backdrops for their engagement session in Washington, DC.

Cherry Blossom Pictures Washington DC – Sisters

Cherry blossoms and little girls are such a precious combination for pictures!  Sarah Katherine and Caroline in their purple smocked dresses were picture perfect.  I love that we found these beautiful weeping cherry trees for Sarah to peek through.  She’s just the cutest at almost 4 years old; I’m so fortunate to have been her photographer since she was a newborn!  Caroline decided at first that she was not going to participate, but by the end was all laughs, as the sun went down and the light was gone, of course.  But not before I snagged a few of the sisters sharing a laugh near the tidal basin – the best capture of their relationship!  What good friends they are growing to be!

Sarah carried this stick around for a long time, while Caroline didn’t want to touch it and was more concerned about her bow!  So fun to see the different personalities!

After a few smiles Sarah would want to make faces – and boy could she make some funny faces!  Makes for fun pictures for sure!  And shows just how creative and silly she is!  I’d call out an emotion and she’d make a face.
