Washington, DC Newborn Photographer – David

What a sweet addition to this family of boys!  Newborn baby brother will have a blast growing up with two older brothers to keep him entertained.  David is the most pleasant baby!  He didn’t sleep much, but calmly looked around with hardly a whimper all day.  He seems to know he’s joined a busy Washington DC family and it’s best to go with the flow!
I’ve so enjoyed keeping up with this family over the years, starting as their wedding photographer. It’s been such an honor to document their family as it’s expanded and as the kids have grown.  I love seeing pictures on their walls from all their family photo sessions!  And seeing the whole family enjoy the photo albums from the wedding and the other boy’s newborn photo sessions.  Precious days that are flying by, but the memories captured in pictures always take us right back and make us smile!

Washington DC Family Photographer

What fun to see this family again!  Remember the cold, windy, but oh so sweet wedding day with mountain views last October?  Today we had the prefect summer day for family pictures in Washington, DC.  This family has blended beautifully and it was a joy to capture them all together!  Sons, daughters, siblings.  Lots of love to go around!

I so appreciate when it’s important to a mom to have regular family pictures taken – I know it takes a lot of effort – and sometimes months to find a date with busy schedules – but it’s so worth it!  And I know these pictures will become even more precious to them as the years go by.

Alexandria, VA Newborn Photographer – Jaxson

Have you ever seen anything more precious than the photos of these two brothers?  Big brother has just turned 4 and he was so gentle in holding his baby brother!  You may remember them from a May Washington DC maternity shoot.  Alex didn’t quite remember me from his newborn or toddler photo session, so it really helped that we could get reacquainted and he was excited to have me come to their home in Alexandria VA for his baby brother’s newborn photos.  Always love seeing this sweet family and am so happy they’ve added another beautiful, smily, baby boy to their family! Welcome Jaxson!

As seems to be the case so many times, after his lunch break he decided he’d stay awake for while to see what’s going on.  Makes for beautiful pictures of gorgeous eyes, but also takes hours of baby watching before we can move on to more posed pictures.  Sometimes it’s a slow process, it’s a baby led day, but it’s ALWAYS worth it for theses sweet pictures!

Fairfax Newborn Photographer – Baby Ryan

Baby boy #3 joins these two big brothers! I LOVE photographing a family as it grows! It’s hard to believe how big these brothers are, seems like their newborn photos were just a bit ago!  Such lucky boys to grow up with built in buddies!  Baby Ryan was so sweet to go with the flow, he already seems to know he’s got a lot going on around him and that’s OK.  He’ll be joining the fun soon!

How adorable is this picture of Ryan in a large Tonka dump truck!  Just the cutest!  Two dump trucks were bribes for the bigger boys to be in the pictures.  🙂

On a rainy day in Fairfax, VA, the rain held off and it was cool enough to take the baby outside.  Love that we had this option on a summer day!

It never fails that a newborn has their longest awake time of their life on their picture day.  They just don’t want to miss out!  But it does mean pretty eye pictures!

This big brother is so caring and doting, he was my assistant most of the day. And always checking on everything to make sure no one needed anything.  What a dear heart he has! And what a special picture that he’ll treasure!
