Toddler in the Garden {Washington DC Family Photography}

I met this girl before she was even born. I first met her parents two years ago when we did a maternity session. I was then there again when she was a newborn photographing her in her home. So it was quite wonderful to see her as a full blown toddler. She had opinions and curiosity and of course smiles.

Two Weeks New {Bethesda Newborn Photography}

I loved meeting this little guy. His mom was not originally planning on doing newborn photos but once she met this sweet little guy how could she not? He was so great for our session he almost never woke up. After an hour together his mom and dad tried to get him to wake up-changed his diaper, took him outside, etc. He’s such a great sleeper he wanted to show off his skills! Hope he continues to be so sweet and easy!

I met this little guy last year when he was a mere week old! He was sweet and I even got the elusive newborn smile from him so I knew we’d be good friends. I was so happy when his mom contacted me to capture him at this stage following his first birthday. He is now mostly toddler-eager to explore but still with that sweet smile. Happy first birthday to one of DC’s cutest babes!

Baby Makes Five {Washington DC Newborn Photography}

This new little baby is already so loved. Not only does he have two wonderful and kind parents but he has two very enthusiastic siblings. Newborn sessions are so different when there are older siblings. They are not quite as calm and serene but they also add a lot of humor and fun. And these two were no different. Thanks for a wonderful morning!

Family of Four {Washington DC Family Photographer}

I was so glad this mom got in touch with me in August. She wanted to get some family photos of her sweet family of four. These kids were rockstars and were happy to giggle at my silly antics and follow directions. Though I knew I had worn them out when this four year old literally laid on the ground at the end declaring “I’m tired”. That is how every photo session should end!

A New Baby Boy {Washington DC Newborn Photographer}

I loved meeting one of DC's newest little baby boys. He was alert for his whole photo session and often looked right at the camera, a perfect little model. Not only did these wonderful parents have an adorable baby boy but they had the sweetest pup who did not want to be left out. I loved seeing their new nursery and how much they loved each other and their new son. What a beautiful new family I was so happy to capture.

 

Five Months in Rock Creek Park {Washington DC Family Photographer}

This sweet mom contacted me saying she was finally ready to do some family photos with their sweet 5 month old baby girl. And based on how happy and cooperative baby S was, I'd say this was a perfect time. She smiled and giggled all morning despite the early morning wakeup. And have you ever seen such beautiful blue eyes! And we all lucked out that we didn't melt from the mid-summer humidity. I loved photographing this sweet family.

Backyard Family Fun {Washington DC Family Photographer}

Usually when a DC family contacts me about family photos, I recommend we do them at a local park. And while that is usually beautiful, this special session in this family's very own backyard was fantastic. It was so fun to incorporate their Petworth home into their family photos. These girls have the best smile and this was such a fun and hopefully pain free morning.
