A Photographers’ Meet-up

This newborn session has all the joys of a new baby and summertime wrapped up together. Sweet Grace was adorable in her knitted blush outfit.

The Capitol | Where to take photos in DC

Meet sweet baby Lena. She was so calm during her session while she slept and even when she was awake. Her parents live in a beautiful historic home on Capitol Hill.

An At-home Newborn Session on Capitol Hill | Alice is Wonderland Themed Nursery

My favorite thing about taking at-home newborn sessions? It’s the uniqueness that each home and family brings. Little Logan was so calm the entire session. His Daddy changed his outfits several times and was so gentle he hardly made a sound. His sweet swaddle and outfit was from Caden Lane. We did a few photos […]

The National Cathedral | Where to take Photos in DC

Little Ryan is my smallest baby to photograph to date. He was so tiny and the sweetest bundle. His parents are in love and Shadow is already very protective, sniffing the baby and sitting quietly beside him. Since the session day was very cloudy we took most of the portraits outside by their front door. […]
