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. 

Morning in the Garden {Washington DC Family Photographer}

As you'll see around here, I spend a lot of early mornings in Bishop's Garden. Its so beautiful all year round and relatively quiet which makes it a beautiful place to take family photos. This morning was no exception. These friends are some of my favorite photo subjects and this little girl was full of energy that morning. I was happy to capture her in her two year old glory...and the bribe of chocolate at the end didn't hurt either.

A Beautiful Mother's Day Present {Washington DC Family Photography}

I was so happy when this sweet new dad contacted me. He wanted to get his wife, a first time mom, a special mother's day present. A family photography session is such a wonderful idea. We were able to capture their sweet 5 month old and of course both of them. They are lucky to have such a sweet little girl who put up with hot temperatures and a few outfit changes. Happy first Mother's Day!

New Little Brother {Washington DC Newborn Photography}

I loved meeting this new family of four. As a DC Newborn Photographer, I see a lot of nurseries but this one on a beautiful street in Cleveland Park was truly stunning. Big sister warmed up quite quickly and loved starring in the photo session with her baby brother. She had all sorts of talents to show off and baby brother was happy to sleep in his parents arms amid the chaos. I loved meeting this sweet family, including big furry pup and hope their life is always filled with as much excitement and zeal. 

Hello Little Lady {Washington DC Newborn Session}

This was definitely a favorite newborn session, taking place in their beautiful home in Brookland. This little girl was wide awake almost the whole time looking around, staring at the camera, taking everything in. Her parents were fun and easy going, even when they got spit up on. They had a beautiful nursery in a beautiful home and they are already settling in as one of DC's newest families of three!

I loved this session for so many reasons. We lucked out with the weather being relatively mild this morning. These two kids could not get any cuter. Big brother stole the show with his antics and little sister was wonderfully behaved just observing.  Their parents were wonderful as well and happy to chase after this little guy. This made for a wonderful session with this fun family!


A New Little Sister {Washington DC Newborn Photographer}

If you've been around here for a while, you've definitely seen this family. Not only are they one of my favorite families to photograph, they are also dear friends. I was very excited to meet the newest member of their family-this beautiful little babe. It was a fun challenge to get an energetic two year old and a sleep newborn in the same pictures and I think the turned out great. 

This is Two {Washington DC Family Photography}

This session perfectly encapsulated this two year old. There was lots of movement and distraction and of course lots of giggles as we walked around Yards Park. This little guy loved to look around and explore, walk up and down steps and be tickled by mom and dad. I'm glad we got to capture him at this fun age!
