Little S is One! -Arlington, VA birthday photographer

It’s been pretty quiet here on my blog this summer, I know. I have been in full vacation mode! We went away for a few weeks in the beginning of summer, and since we’ve been back, I am just soaking up my time at home with my boys before the school year begins anew. Organizing our home and purging things we no longer need have been top on my to-do list, so I apologize for not sharing more images recently! Oh yes, and another project I vowed I would complete this summer was creating a family photo album for the last… um… 4 years. yikes. Wish me luck on that one:)

I was so happy to be invited to photograph baby S’s 1st birthday party this past weekend in Arlington. She was such a little doll and was just happy as can be! Totally sharp contrast to my Henry who screamed his brains out for the entirety of his first birthday party! I loved how fun and joyful this family was- lots of aunts and uncles and cousin and grandparents were there to help S celebrate, and I always appreciate when families make me feel right at home. And, the cupcakes were amazing! Sweet babe was so cute with her first cupcake- she insisted on eating it with a fork! What a little lady!

Baby Drew is 6 months old! -Kensington, MD baby photographer

I have loved this little doll since she was born. I can’t even believe we are already at her 6 month portrait session! This is my FAVORITE time to do baby portraits! They can usually sit up, are super smiley and interactive, but they don’t crawl away form you yet! I you were going to choose just one session from baby’s first year- do a 6 month session! So much fun, and so great to get sibling shots as well:)These three just make me smile every time I see them!

Two year old birthday party! -Urbana, MD photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing a fellow MCPS teacher’s twins birthday party at the park in Urbana last weekend. I loved how laid back it was, and how the girls were surrounded by so many friends and family to celebrate them! This was a great location for a birthday party, as well. We ended up getting rained on, but it made for memorable puddle-jumping!


Isn’t this little one such a doll?!







These blue eyes are to die for!


Just realizing that she is WET!


Sneak peek of my new packaging! -Washington, DC portrait photographer

I have been working so hard the past few months to re-organize my business and create a really special experience for my clients. I want a portrait session to be easy, relaxing, and unique from start-to-finish! I respect my clients’ time, and have made booking a session super simple through online contracts and payments, worked with a designer to renovate my logo and blog, and have finally put the finishing touches on my packaging. If you have taken a minute to read my philosophy page on my site, you know that I treasure prints, and want all clients to come away from a session with beautiful, custom artwork to display in their homes and share with loved ones. I am so excited to share a peek of my new packaging because I believe that my artwork deserves a pretty beautiful wrapping, and I want to make it all the more special for my clients when they receive their orders!

Here are a few pics of my new custom wooden USB drives for clients purchasing a digital package, handmade-paper print envelopes from Rice Supply, my new business cards from MOO, and a sample of my most recent accordion mini album order. I hope you love as much as I do!

Tiny little details. -Georgetown Newborn Photographer

One of my favorite things about a newborn session is capturing all the little details of new life. These are the things we forget as they grow- we forget about how much hair they really had when born, the little hangnails on their two-week old fingers, just how chubby their feet were. I will be sharing some more images of baby from this session soon, but for now, let’s just focus on these easily forgotten details:)
