Fall Family Portrait Availability | Northern Virginia and DC Family Photographer

Need updated family photos? The fall is definitely the time to do it, especially if you haven’t had any done this year. There is nothing more amazing and magical than late afternoon light in the fall when the leaves are colorful.

I still have weekday sessions open this fall as well as one weekend date available in November. I will not be able to accommodate last minute requests for appointments so if you are interested, book NOW!

Beach Portraits | Northern Virginia Newborn Photographer

As promised, here are the photos from our beach vacation. I always make it a point to take family and kid portraits while we are down there and I truly treasure these images as the years go by. Such an amazing trip and I’m so blessed to have amazing people in my life.

We always vacation at the same house (it’s my Dad’s) and with the same friends. They live in New Jersey so we don’t get to see them much during the rest of the year, but I truly treasure spending time with them at the beach.

Here are all of the kids, my boys & their girls.

We spent a lot of time doing this, my kids sprouted fins while there.

This sweet baby boy (can I still call him a baby at 21 months?) loves the water.

And my first baby, who will be 5 in just a month, can now swim unassisted under water. I’m amazed at how fast he’s picked up on swimming, it was just a few years ago when he was afraid of the pool & ocean and now he’s like a fish.

We did a little boating adventure on The Sound one of the days and the kids were able to learn about all of the animals that thrive in the sound, go fishing, crabbing, eeling and drive the boat!

Yes, I probably should have rubbed the sunscreen in on his face a little better.;-)

It’s near impossible to take a good photo of these 4 crazy little ones.


I can’t believe how much these girls have grown up since I last saw them last year!

I am completely in love with this image of my two boys.

Love this family!

And so happy I was able to get a photo of my family that I adore.

I smother this face with kisses non-stop.

Can’t help myself!

Carter’s new favorite job? Being my assistant!

Love evening beach light!

Already looking forward to heading back to the beach house in September with my photo girls!!

A Post Full of Awesome | Northern Virginia Family Photography

Pin It

When my friend Glennon sent me a message on Facebook last fall interested in family photos I squealed a little. Not only does she have the cutest kids ever, but she’s a super talented writer. Glennon was in the process of relaunching her very popular Momastery blog and wanted updated photos of her and her adorable family for it.

This week, Glennon wrote a post that most of us parents can wholeheartedly relate to, and that went viral all over the internet. Raising little kids is tough and I would be lying if my husband and I didn’t high five each other once the kids are in bed after a long and demanding day. I’m also one of those people who catches myself telling all of the new Mom’s that come into my studio to enjoy every single second of their babies newbornhood while being guilty of not doing the same with my own little kids. We all question (daily probably) if we are doing this parenting thing right and I loved her post, Carpe Kairos people!

You have to read this.

Back to the photos. I didn’t want to blog them until she had launched her new blog so here they are! We had a super warm fall late afternoon where the light was magical and the kids were perfectly behaved and adorable.

Now tell me they aren’t the cutest family ever.

Daddy and his boy.

Miss Sassy.

Miss Amma.

Chase, the sweetest and kindest boy ever.

And then we went to my favorite field, I know Glennon probably thought I was nuts but I adore how these came out.

Thank you Glennon & family from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to capture your family and congrats on the success of the new blog!

Love Them | Washington DC Baby Photographer

I’ve loved photographing this family as their boys get bigger! Last time I saw them, little E was only a week old. We met up this morning to grab some quick Holiday photos at the studio and I loved seeing how much he has changed in 4 months and seeing him with his big brother. These two are just the cutest.

Look at that hair and smile.

Adorable big brother.

The twosome.

This is really cool, here’s photo of big brother at this same age I took back in 2009.

And here’s baby brother today on the same rug, wearing the same outfit.

Again, not sharing any family shots on the blog, I don’t want to spoil their Holiday Card.:-)

Three Little Beauties | Washington DC Baby Photographer

Today I got to photograph a beautiful family with three girls, all three and under, the youngest being three months old, that’s a lot of threes! These ages are all tough but these girls were so well behaved and were awesome for their photo shoot.

Big sis who is 3:

Middle sis who is 2:

And baby sis who is 3 months:

All so adorable, we also got lots of great family shots but I will refrain from sharing in case Mom & Dad want to use them in their Christmas cards.

The bigger sisters, I love this shot and those coats!

And one more of little miss, does it get any cuter than this?!

R family, it was so nice seeing you all today!
