Nadia and Nicole -Twin Newborn Session

Twins are wonderful. Exhausting. Delightful. And work, a lot of work. I thought of it several times during their newborn session how busy their mother was. But in all the busy and mundane tasks, how grateful she was for her full arms… and even fuller heart. There’s just nothing like a brand new baby and…

The Birth Story of Daniel | DC Birth Photographer

Have you ever done something and afterwards felt, “I was made to do this?!” That’s how I felt after photographing my first birth. Honestly, I want to photograph 100 more.  The day was cold and sunny as I drove to the hospital. I felt excitement and butterflies as I checked into the Labor and Delivery;…

Welcoming Kaden -DC Newborn Photographer

I adore watching toddlers interact with their new sibling. Each child is different, some pretend they aren’t there, others want to love on their new baby, and some get a little too rough as they inspect the newest member of the family. Kassi did so well with her baby brother Kaden, and Kaden; well, he…

Respecting Toddlers During a Photo Session

I’m not going to lie, it can be hard. It can be hard as parents and photographer to want the “perfect” photo so badly that we brush aside the toddlers during a family or newborn session. They may be small, but they matter so much even if it is during a newborn session because they…

What to Pack for Birth Photography

Right now I am waiting on call to photograph my first birth. Some of you may think that’s seems strange to document a birth for clients but I couldn’t be more thrilled. It feels like the highest compliment and honor to be there to witness the miracle of life and that my clients would invite…

The Duran Family -Washington, DC Newborn Session

The father and little girl welcomed me at the door. Amalea was so excited to be a big sister and couldn’t wait to show me little Asa. We walked up the stairs and as I entered the master bedroom I had to take a deep breath. Soft music was playing and I saw feet kicking…

Caydence -Fall Newborn Session

When I think of a woman who embraces motherhood to the fullest, I think of Kathy. She’s the kind of mother that would fit in a Norman Rockwell painting. She celebrates every holiday, making it so fun for her sweet girls. And on the hard days, she hugs them even tighter. Welcome to this bright…

Dillon -Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

This little man had no interest in sleeping during his session, but just look at those sweet eyes! He thought he was starving so he kept Daddy busy making bottles. We took as many breaks as he needed and it was wonderful. We took most of the family portraits in the master bedroom and finished…

What to do when your baby cries during your session

This is a fear of most new mothers when they schedule their newborn photo sessions: what happens if your baby cries? The last several newborn sessions haven’t been “easy” ones, meaning the baby didn’t sleep during the session and we took 6 or so feeding breaks. But this doesn’t mean you don’t have options and…

Jensen -Manassas Newborn Photographer

This little boy has been welcomed with such joy and celebration. His big sister delights in holding him and his parents couldn’t be more proud. I love the dynamics a third child brings. The older children (no matter how small) suddenly feel bigger and important. The family of four is thrown into the wild and…
