Eddie @ Three Days New

Over Labor Day weekend, I finally got to meet little Eddie – who kept everyone waiting for quite some time! At three days old, this little guy was cute as can be and seemed to fit right in with big brother Seph and moms Nicole and Beth. Eddie was given his first bath – and had mixed feelings about the experience. Moms Nicole and Beth had their superwoman capes on and managed to wrangle in their family and toddler with inspiring ease. Congratulations on your beautiful family, Beth and Nicole!

Beth+Nicole+Seph and little one on the way!

What a difference a year makes! It feels like I was taking little Seph’s newborn photographs just yesterday and now he is a spunky little toddler that loves to run and play. I had so much fun spending time with Beth and Nicole again as they prepare to welcome their second son into the world. Good luck with the upcoming birth!

Cherry Blossom Maternity Session

I finally purchased and made use of a quality remote control device for my camera! Last week’s subject was none other than…myself and my husband! We headed down to the Cherry Blossoms at the last minute and set the tripod up to capture a few photographs before we welcome our newest addition into the family. Here are a few of my favorites:

Last weekend I had the pleasure of celebrating Hannah’s first birthday by photographing her playing and having fun with her parents Larry and Beth in their beautiful home in Washington, DC. Hannah was a lot of fun to be around, as were her parents. She’s full of spunk and yet very focused when playing with her toys. She loves books and really enjoyed playing with her farm set. We ended the session with a cake smash that was more of a careful cake dissection – Hannah very gently tasted it. Here are a few of my favorites from the session.

Baby Anderson is Six Days New

A few days ago I had the pleasure of meeting Kathleen, Dana, and their brand new baby boy. Little Anderson enjoyed sleeping and then watching his mom and dad as I snapped photographs. I loved all the grey in their condo and their nursery decor.

Ryan + Carrie + Grace + Owen + Jack

Ryan, Carrie, and their three children are pretty incredible people. I’ve ¬†been photographing their children, Grace, Owen, and Jack, for a number of years now and really enjoy watching them all grow. I know it can’t be easy, but Ryan and Carrie are pretty amazing parents and make it seem easy. I had the recent pleasure of takingfamily photographs of them at Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, VA. It was a cold morning, but they braved through it – and I even got some smiles. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of Fall and thank you for letting me be a part of your family for a morning.

Jennifer+Arthur+Caleb at Meridian Hill Park

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of capturing Arthur and Jennifer’s little family – soon to expand by one! Their 17-month old son Caleb made the morning fun.

Ace is One!

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing sweet Ace and his family at Meridian Hill Park in DC. Ace just turned one, and his lovely mother, Angela, wanted pictures of him and out-of-town family to celebrate his first birthday. It was a muggy afternoon, but Ace didn’t seem to care – he had a blast playing with his toys and his cousin Bea. Thanks for letting me capture this special occasion. Here are a few of my favorites: Ace-4 Ace-6 Ace-8

Little Caroline @ Five Days New

Two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to meet Allyson and Matt’s ¬†newborn baby girl, Caroline. Allyson and I know each other through our gym and are good friends –¬†watching Caroline go from just a little bump in her mom’s belly to an actual person in front of me was pretty amazing. And no matter how many times I see this happening, it’s still always so special.

I met her and her family, who were in town for the occasion, on a warm afternoon. I’ve never seen such proud grandparents! Allyson offered the session to her mother, who’s birthday it was. Here are a few of my favorites:¬† Caroline-3 Caroline-5 Continue reading “Little Caroline @ Five Days New”

Baby P. Coming Soon!

Spring has come to¬†Washington, DC and there’s no better way to celebrate its arrival than by visiting with friends and taking in the beauty of the cherry blossoms. I’ve known Jessica and Justin for many years now and they’ve patiently let me practice my photography on them and their son. I really enjoyed watching this sweet family explore the tidal basin early in the morning in celebration of their anticipated new arrival – a baby girl! Dylan, their almost three year old, enjoyed looking for ducks and playing with sticks. Here are a few of my favorites from this session.¬†Poust15-1 Continue reading “Baby P. Coming Soon!”
