Mom and Dad to Be! {Washington DC Maternity Photographer}

We really lucked out with this session. It was an unseasonably warm day in October and the rains that had been non-stop briefly took a break so we get get these beautiful pictures of these two parents to be! We had almost the whole park to ourselves and were able to take advantage of all the beautiful sights. Can’t wait to meet their little lady.

Fun Family Down South {Washington DC Family Photography}

This is one of my oldest friends and her family. I love photographing them when I go down to visit family in Atlanta over Thanksgiving. She has two adorable and energetic kids who are more than happy to run around and giggle. I love watching them grow.

Two Moms To Be! {Washington DC Maternity Photography}

These ladies were referred to me from a previous client. They were both so excited for the new little bundle of joy. This particular day was quite cold but I appreciated their willingness to ditch their coats for a few minutes at a time to get some wonderful shots of the beautiful moms to be!

An Evening in Alexandria {Washington DC Maternity Photography}

This mom and dad to be lucked out with beautiful weather and a beautiful setting. They specifically requested we do our session in Old Town since that is where they got engaged (and did wedding photos). I'm glad we got to capture yet another milestone on these same cobblestone streets.

Maternity Session in the Park {Washington DC Maternity Photographer}

Washington DC has some weird weather and while I know the lack of real winter (at least during the winter months) bothered some people, it worked out wonderfully for my outdoor photo sessions. These sweet parents-to-be lucked out and we got a spring-like day in beautiful Bishop's Garden. They were warm and easy to talk to which means our photo session feels like a fun hang out and definitely does not feel like work. I can't wait to meet their little one soon-hope baby is as wonderful at photos as her parents!

Two Parents to Be! {Washington DC Maternity Photography}

These two are expecting their first baby in January. We met on a chilly afternoon in December but these two were troopers hiking around Meridian Hill Park. They don't know the sex or name of this baby yet but I know this baby will be well loved. They are both so calm and sweet, I'm sure they'll make wonderful parents. Congratulations S family!

Little Ball of Energy {Washington DC Family Photography}

This was not my first session with this little boy. But he was definitely more boy now and less toddler than when I met him last year. He has lots to say and lots to explore which made him a perfect photography subject on this beautiful fall morning. I hope his new little sibling is just as fun as he is!

A Soon to Be Family of Four! {Washington DC Family Photographer}

This was a beautiful fall morning in Northern Virginia. And this was a perfect example of how many toddler sessions go. We start off at the beginning and I get a lot of black stares. This little guy was shy and reserved and none of jokes and tricks were working. But after some time (and some tickles) he suddenly opened up and was as playful as ever. And of course, by the time it was time to go home he was ready to play and run! I'm so glad I got to capture so many sides of this little boy!

Two Weeks New {Washington DC Newborn Photography}

Photographing Sweet baby H was quite the treat. Not only is she simple adorable, she has a beautiful nursery and two very loving parents (and grandparents) who simple adore her. I loved how she simple curled up into her parents. She definitely feels comfortable being close to them. We snuck in a few shots when we were done on her gorgeous porch and hopefully everyone got a nap afterwards! I look forward to watching sweet little H grow!

Six Weeks of Love {Washington DC Newborn Photography}

While many parents want to capture their brand new newborns, I often get emails from Washington DC Parents saying something along the lines of "we weren't quite ready for photos in those first few weeks but still want to capture our little one while they are still so little". This month I did two 6 week sessions because of this. These babies are a little more alert, a little more round, and this is still a wonderful time to capture them. I loved meeting baby S. She had a beautiful well lit nursery and two loving parents to assist in making her photo session so great.
