An Afternoon with Big Kids {Washington DC Family Photographer}

As you’ll see around here, most of my family sessions involve little ones. This means I play a lot of peek-a-boo and do a lot of silly noises-anything to get a big smile! But this session was so refreshing after a packed weekend full of toddler sessions. Older kids don’t require silly noises and this family brought this adorable and well-behaved doodle to keep us all entertained! Thanks for the lovely afternoon.

Winter Morning in the Garden {Washington DC Family Photographer}

We lucked out on this November morning. I have photographed this family a handful of times before but never at one of my favorite and most popular locations-Bishop’s Garden in Washington DC. This garden really works in all seasons and is truly one of DC’s best hidden gems. Its always fun to take pictures there-thanks for a fun morning!

Beautiful Morning in Rock Creek Park {Washington DC Family Photographer}

I loved meeting this sweet family of three for a family photo session. Despite the cold temperature that morning, this little guy was fun and playful. He especially loved a good game of peek-a-boo and looking around at all the beauty of Rock Creek Park. I love the images we got of this sweet family.

One Very Chilly DC Morning {Washington DC Family Photography}

This family might get the award for being my toughest family this fall season. This afternoon was extremely cold-so cold that my morning session was canceled. But this mom said they were tough and could handle it and she was right. All 5 family members shivered through this session and kept smiling despite the frigid temperatures! I loved seeing this family for our third photo session together-see you next year R family!

Two Moms and a Baby {Washington DC Newborn Photographer}

I loved meeting this sweet DC Family. While this little guy was older than most of my newborn clients he was still sweet and sleepy while we were together. But the fun of a three month old is that he was also generous with his smiles. I loved seeing the bond between him and his moms.

This was one of my favorite fall sessions this year. Not only is this family wonderfully photogenic but they also had a beautiful backyard that served as our background. Both girls were so fun to play with and I hope I was able to capture their sweet spirits!

Double the Fun {Washington DC Family Photography}

If you’ve been around here for a while, you’ll recognize these guys. This was my third year photographing this sweet family but my first year capturing their furry family member too. He was obviously a star and the boys both loved posing with him! See you next year S family!

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.

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!

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!
