2015 FALL SPECIAL

SNEAK | Cake Smash | One year of Fun

This little man took a while to warm up to his cake.  He was perplexed and a bit intimidated by the mound of sugar that was put in front of him.  But we were determined for him to smile and enjoy his first birthday cake.  I think this was a success!  Happy Birthday Baby D!

6 days new| Newborn Boy| Fairfax Newborn Photographer |Sneak Peek

While photographing toddlers with their new brother or sister is often a challenge, that was not the case with this family.  Although big brother is not pictured in the sneaks he behaved so well, once he learned that I would let him hold my camera and take a photo if I could take some photos of him first.

The portrait of his mom and his baby brother was taken by a…wait for it… a toddler!  I took the first one.

Alexandria Newborn Baby Girl | Military Family |

This family was such a joy to work with.  It was hard to get big sister to crack a smile BUT when she did – boy oh boy did it light up the room.   The session took place after right b4 Dad had to head out to his next tour in Africa.  Military families are such an honor to work for.  I will stoop rambling, so everyone can just soak up the cuteness this newborn photographer got to experience.  And as you can see, baby girl had no issues with smiling…

My MIL and her Littles| Family Portraiture | Springfield Photographer

Since you guys see many images of my clients, I decided to show you a little peek into my family.  My Mother in law came down to visit and so did my sister in law and her partner.  But of course, like the cobbler’s son who has no shoes, I have no images with me in them – LOL.   But, I am loving these photos and I look forward to them hanging on the wall.
