Washington, DC Newborn Photographer | Welcoming Grant

There is nothing like a new baby. The smell and tiny grunts. The siblings getting to know the newest family member. The proud looks on the parents as they interact together, getting to know what a new normal is. Little Grant was welcomed with all the love possible. With two big sisters, he will get…

Welcoming Smith -Arlington, VA Newborn Photographer

It amazes me how you can go from a family of 3 one day and a family of 4 the next and quickly forget how life was before the new baby. The Strahorn family was very excited to welcome baby Smith into the world. He was pretty much perfection. With big eyes and so calm….

Welcoming Everett | Washington, DC Newborn Photographer

“You have a place in my heart no-one could ever have.” F. S. Fitzgerald Every time I finish a newborn session I get flooded with how much I love it! The challenge of calming a baby down, the quiet moments between parents and baby, and those little toes.-you know how much I love tiny toes!…

Welcoming Daniel -Washington DC Newborn Photographer

I adore at-home sessions for so many reasons. The most important one is for the comfort of the parents. Daniel’s parents were no exception. They just came through several days with the flu bug, on top of being new parents with all the adjustments and not getting much sleep. They said if they couldn’t do…

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…
