SENI9RS!| West Springfield Seniors|Where has the time gone?

I am sure every parent remembers when their “babies were born and when they matriculated to the next level in life.  It’s really bitter sweet.  As parents, we are supposed to do everything in our power to make sure these kids who were once dependent on us for everything, are now able to navigate this world without us by their sides (sniff, sniff).  BUT, they will always know that we are just a text away – or a phone call IF they even know how to use one of those “ancient things” – LOL

Senior Girl
And Just because I can – I am adding a photo of my Swimmer 🙂  He will be a senior in a few years (sniff, sniff)

Playground Hair – Don’t Care| Sneak Peek| Mini Session

It’s so rewarding photographing this little girl.  This time around we chose to hang out in Oldtown and go to the playground.  So thankful I was chosen to capture their pixie having a great time in her “element”.  The images were taken when she was at her happiest – 3pm and basking in the Spring sun.  Just goes to show ya, the best time for a portrait session is when the pixies are the happiest. 

 

“Da BEACH”| in Northern VA|

I believe the closest “real” beach to us is in DE or MD – not northern VA.  But there is a GREAT park that I love to take advantage of – right here in NOVA.  It’s 30 miles from DC, 25 miles from Alexandria and 20 miles from most parts of Fairfax County.

Please let me know if you’d like to schedule a session at da beach!

I’m a Princess|Alexandria Photographer|Mini Session

There are so many times during a child’s life – I was going to say young life but realized that as a mom, I want (let’s be honest – NEED) to document EVERYTHING.  But, I also do not want a shrine in my house – LOL.  And that is why I now offer mini sessions year round.  They take about 30 minutes, and just like that, your Pixie’s Princess Stage has been documented.

Pretend play has been proven to be an essential part of a kid’s education.   They are actively experimenting with the social and emotional roles of life and the best part – your child develops self esteem – they believe they can be anything they want to be.  So, this day, I can hear this Pixie say – “Today, and everyday is a GREAT day to be a princess!”

Brand New Baby Boy | Lifestyle Session |Surrounded by Boys

When Mom called me again for the second time, I jumped at the chance to photograph the newest addition to the family.  I am not sure what is in the water in Alexandria but Mom was 100% put together and Dad was incredibly smiley,  Maybe, just maybe that Newborn smell does actually cure all that ails ya.

Winter Portrait Specials

Now that Winter has set in (brrrr) it’s time to move the sessions indoors!  Don’t let less than desirable weather stop you from having your precious memories captured.  Your kids and family will continue to grow and change and smile no matter the temperature.

Indoor sessions allows everyone to be in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by their own toys and virtually an unlimited amount of clothing choices.  I bring the backdrop and the lights and the focus will be on you, your pixie(s), your fur pixies…

Please contact me via the contact form, text or a give me a call (703) 887-9961 to discuss how I can help create lasting memories. (and to hear about the specials) PS – if you or your kids are OK with outside portraits – so am I… (smile)

 

FALL MINI SESSIONS – Family Portraits

I seriously cannot believe that Summer is almost over.  Even tho many Washingtonians are on vacation there are many who have stayed in the area.  And I am thrilled about that because I got to spend the majority of my Summer in Springfield/Burke taking photos of families in Northern Virginia and spending lots of  quality time at the pool watching my kiddo and his friends enjoy the comradery of Swim Team.   I will post photos from the summer below this post (in a few days :))

As promised, the information about my Fall Mini Sessions can be seen in the flyer below.   Space is limited for weekend dates.  I am more flexible during the week, with times and locations.  All Newborn Sessions will take place during the week October thru November unless an outdoor mini session is requested.  I schedule no more than 4 families per day.  If there is bad weather on your contracted date, there WILL be room to reschedule.  I do hope to hear from you soon.
