This young lady is AMAZING! She sets her mind to something – and guess what? She achieves it. She recently started swimming Club and now she is a junior OLYMPIAN! Next goal – breaking records at the Rolling Valley Pool.
With the Winter that we have had – it’s hard to believe that Spring is around the corner. I believe that to be true because my daffodils are starting to grow. After all, that is the first sign of Spring – so of course it’s time to start thinking of Spring Mini Sessions.
You pick the Day, Time and Location. If you’d like to save $60 – prepay for ALL of the images. Weekends tend to go first. I only take three families per weekend – after all – there is a chance that it will rain and I want to make sure you will get your photos in the beautiful weather. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
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
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.
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!
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!”
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.
