I don’t have a lot to say about this session, except it was AWESOME! The squish – what a perfect little pixie. She fell fast sleep as soon as she was swaddled. I nicknamed her swaddle baby. The first pose is accomplished with the help of photoshop.
Who says its hard to photograph a baby that is 6 weeks old? Not me (smile). I packed up my gear and headed out to Alexandria Virginia to take this little pixie’s first portraits. I knew that I might not be able to get all the squishy poses but I was confident that I could get poses that showcases his newness.
This little man was a champ. Mom and Dad followed my pre session directions and he behaved just as I wanted him to – I love photos with eyes wide open – and I was able to capture some of those as well as the sleepy baby images. I will stop rambling now and let you see all the cuteness below. P.S. Their little dog was perfectly behaved – loved him too!
P.S. Have you noticed that I have not done a naked baby in years, but the innocence is still maintained?
Every year I donate one session to a school. This year Burgundy Farm Day Country School was the recipient. If Friends School ( My old Stomping grounds) was closer to my house, I would donate there as well. 🙂
This family met me at Burke Lake Park – the trees lost all their leaves as they prepared for the cold months ahead – BUT, we were still able to find some beautiful color that morning. Let your eyes feast on all the cuteness.
I have been photographing this family for years. I remember when the oldest one could not even take his first steps – NOW look at him!
I am catching up on my BLOG (hopefully) below you will see a few of my favorites from this session.
I’m over sharing! Ok – One more. 🙂
Baby girl was bound to be strong. Dad is a soccer player and Mom is a swimmer, so of course she has super strong legs and she made sure that I was well aware of her DNA. She kicked out of every swaddle and wrap – but we still managed to get her settled. Take a gander at the cuteness. And I LOVE that Dad did the nursery.
I cannot wait for this baby girl to be born. We hung out in old town for a little under an hour and got some amazing portraits to celebrate the impending birth. I love how I captured the personally and love between all of the family members – even the fur baby. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be the first one 🙂 I know I am over sharing again – but I can’t help it…

Happy New Year! What a great way to start the new year – hanging out with baby B in his hospital room. Today’s hospital rooms and beds are perfect for this type of session. I will also be offering these as a mini session as well as a full blown session. Sign up for my newsletter to get all of the details.
I usually do not share more than three or four images from a session, but because it is a new type of session I am offering, I will “bombard” you with cuteness!
As always ALL active Duty Military families receive a discount on digital Images.
I love when this family calls me. Their kiddos are so incredibly full of energy. Every time I see them I smile. Mom is stiff stunning and Dad totally wins the funnest coolest dad around.
This year we met at Burke Lake Park. I love it there, even tho Fairfax County asks all photographers to buy a permit. BUt, I don’t lem them. The location is perfect! Here are a few of my favorites!
I often say that I have the very best clients. And after every session, I repeat this Mantra. Mom and Dad were amazing. As you can see from Dad’s tattoos – Halloween is a favorite time of year for this family. Congrats guys. Your baby boy is AMAZING!!! And he was a perfect model. And I must give a shout out to grandma – because well, every time she called his name he smiled…it was awesome!
Also, many people (well photographers) have asked how I achieved the first black and white image. Here is the SOOR (Straight Out of Raw) Image. It shows you the set-up so you achieve this for yourself. I hope that helps.
