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!

This is One {Washington DC Family Photographer}

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. 

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.
