Calendar/Maternity Leave Updates | Virginia Newborn & Baby Photographer

I can’t believe that it’s already August, this year is flying by! Just a quick update, my calendar is completely BOOKED through September. I will be taking the months of October & November mostly off with a few limited appts and then will probably be back in the swing of things come December.  Things are going to be chaotic before October so I’m hoping I can make it through the craziness and get prepared for our newest arrival.

This post would not be complete without a photo from last Saturday’s session. How beautiful is she?!

I’ve got a bit of newborn-palooza in the next coming days so stay tuned!

The (Soon-To-Be) Big Brother & Notes from the Beach | Outer Banks NC Photographer

***  Just a quick note that I will be out of the office through June 22nd. I have my laptop down here with me but am probably not going to be as quick to respond to emails since we are on vacation. ***

I LOVE the beach and I love photographing on the beach, there is nothing more amazing than the light on the beach as the sun is about to set.  As much as I love being on vacation and not having to work, I also get a serious itch to pick up my camera to capture this beautiful time in our lives, our last family vacation until we become a family of 4.

Like a lot of other photographers, sometimes I get so busy and wrapped up in client work that I neglect to take photos of my own child. I’m not going to lie, it takes a LOT more work to photograph your own kid than someone else’s but I now that Carter is so much more bribe-able it’s gotten a little easier, even if he does eat a lollipop at 8pm at night.

BTW, look at the shots from last year at the beach isn’t it CRAZY how much bigger he is?! I took a shot very similar to this one last year and love it so much it’s hanging on my office wall.

I just think he’s the cutest thing ever.;-)

And a complete goofball.

BTW, outfit is from Mini Boden, I am obsessed with their clothes. Pretty sure this one is going big on my wall, I love how the setting sun is peeking out over the dune grass.

He loves to throw the sand, it’s all fun and games until it gets in your eyes.

He looks about 10 in this photo, where did my baby go?

Ah, life is GOOD.:-)

BTW, if you are down in the Outer Banks shoot me an email if you want to get some family photos done, I’m here through the 22nd.

Carter is getting a baby…


We are SO excited, I’ve always wanted boys so this is a dream come true. I grew up playing sports and being a tomboy so I can’t wait to watch my little guys do the same. I’m also excited for Carter to have a little buddy to play with.:-)

He’s already got loooong legs like his Mom, Dad & brother. I’ve been feeling those legs kick me for a month now.

Sweet little boy.

I feel so lucky and blessed and can’t believe I’m already 20 weeks along, half way done!I can’t wait to meet him in October.

Calendar Updates! | Virginia Newborn Photographer

Just a few quick notes about openings this summer, things are already getting very busy!

* May is completely booked.

* June is also booked except for the last week, I have the 29th or 30th available. I do still have beach session appointments available while we are on vacation in the Outer Banks, NC from June 10-22nd.

* July I have weekday spots and that’s it, I have NO WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS available until SEPTEMBER and I only have the 4th & 11th open. I do have  weekday spots open right now for July, August, & September so book NOW.

Don’t forget, my due date is October 26th so I will only be taking October appointments on a last minute basis and depending on how I’m feeling. I will keep the blog updated with that info.

And because I can’t post without a photo, I am going to post one more of this adorable 7 month old. They have this amazing blue building near their home in DC and I’m obsessed with it. I wish I could shoot there every session.
