twins special connection { washington dc newborn photographer }

I have an extra special place in my heart for the babies in my newborn session today. Yes, that is right; I said babies! Boy and girl twins to be exact. As a mom of a set of boy and girl twins myself, I feel a special connection to these families. I know first hand how challenging being a parent of twins can be, but I also know that you get to experience twice the kisses and twice the love.

The twins were ready for their photo debut. They were so cooperative and allowed me the time to find those cute poses. They had similar features, but I loved how her features looked so feminine, especially with a touch of lace and a flower headband, and how his features looked so masculine, along with his cute little pants. One of my favorite pictures was the one with the brother laying on his belly while his sister rested her head on his back. They looked so loving and cozy.

I loved seeing the special connection between twins when I photographed them together. The brother would tenderly wrap his arm around his sister so protectively. We nested them in a basket together. I loved using all of the flowery headbands. It was fun to watch the parents gazing down on their new babies. We wrapped the babies in a white swaddles, which contrasted nicely to the color of the parents shirts. It was so much fun to mix colors and backgrounds in order to find that perfect shot.

What a blast we had today! I have chosen some of my favorite pictures to share. I cannot wait to see how these beautiful children grow and develop over the years.

montrose maternity session {washington dc maternity photographer }

Every family I photograph has a unique character. To create custom portraits, finding just the right locale that helps express that character is essential. For the family pictured here, the natural beauty of Montrose Park in Georgetown provided the perfect backdrop for their maternity session. As you can see, the resulting images feel soft and natural.

Montrose Park is lovely and serene, both qualities that reflect the mother in these photos. Draped in her simple dress with its powdery-blue hue, she’s like a wisp of sky set off against the park’s earthy palette of greens and browns. I love the peacefulness of her expressions.

Sometimes the most memorable freeze-frames in a maternity shoot are those featuring family members interacting with mom’s stomach. That was the case here when big-brother-to-be stole the focus with his playfully tussled hair and effervescent smile. In the photograph, I love how he leans in with one cherub-cheek pressed against his mother’s belly.

In another snapshot, the family strolls down one of the park’s meandering paths together, holding hands. Literally and figuratively, they’re on a journey together. Their joy was easy to see looking through the lens, and their powerful sense of connection to one another shines through in the final pictures. My favorite part has to be the irrepressible smiles that light each of their faces.

I’m delighted that this family chose to share these moments with me. Bookmarking this page in their story with pictures was a pleasure. In the years to come, I hope they’ll turn back to revisit these happy memories often.

first birthday { washington dc baby photographer }

I had the pleasure of taking pictures of this sweet family when their baby girl was born for her newborn session. I recently took pictures of the baby for her first birthday. The little girl is full of life and wonder, and you can clearly see this in her pictures. From propping herself on her hands and legs to sitting in a small nest while holding a toy, she is a girl with bright eyes and a contagious smile. The lighter colors of her clothes, such as beige, pink and peach, are accented well by the neutral backgrounds and props that are used in the pictures. The lighter colors also highlight the baby’s dark hair a bit better than it would be highlighted if darker backgrounds would have been used.

As the baby starts to touch her cake, you can see the inquisitive nature in her eyes as she isn’t sure about touching the sweet treat. Finally, she delicately takes some of the icing off of the cake and puts it in her mouth. This is before she sticks her entire hand into the cake for a fun picture. The mother and father exhibit the same innocence and quiet demeanor in the family pictures. The selection of neutral colors works well in the outdoor setting as the focus is more on the expressions of the people in the pictures instead of what they are wearing. There is a beautiful love shared between the mother and her baby as she looks at her little girl’s face and a sense of protection as the father looks at the two ladies in his life in some of the pictures.

newest edition { washington dc newborn photographer }

One of my favorite parts of being a Washington DC newborn photographer is the opportunity to bond with families. I first had the privilege to meet this family when they brought their beautiful daughter in for her newborn photo session. I was so honored when they chose to return for a session featuring their newest edition.

This little man had the most beautiful glowing skin. I began the session with a white backdrop, which really let his color shine. I loved how his dark hair fell so softly on his head and his hands curled up under his cheeks. Later, we moved on to darker backgrounds. I loved his little pants. He looked so adorable and ready to bust out and start playing. How much fun Mom and Dad are going to have with this little man! I was able to capture a few photos with darker backgrounds. The blues, browns and blacks looked so beautiful, and the contrast was just stunning. He looked so safe surrounded by the softness of the blankets.

It was great to see the interactions between the parents and their children. The baby’s big sister looked on with her big, beautiful curious eyes. Mom and dad gazed lovingly down on their new addition with joy and pride. It was cute to see Dad engaged in an Eskimo kiss. It was a treasured special moment.

I am so glad that I had the opportunity to provide specialized quality newborn photos for this young family. I look forward to watching as these babies grow and their own personalities begin to emerge. They are welcome to return anytime to their favorite Washington D.C. photographer for all of their treasured family keepsakes.

family love { northern virginia family photographer }

I truly enjoyed the time I spent with this family for their photo session.  I could see the family love that they have for each other in every pose.  I really enjoy capturing the connection between families.  Mom and Dad, as well as the brother and sister, have their own unique looks, but when they come together, there is an excitement and joy among the family. The location was requested by the mother, and even though there was a small fee for the Botanical Garden in Vienna, VA, (quickly becoming one of my favorite places to shoot) the setting was beautiful and allowed a way for the family to display their inner personalities.

One of the images of the family is of all four sitting on the ground with tall grass and flowers in the background. The selection of clothing in natural colors blends well with the background and allows you to focus on the faces and expressions of each person. The little girl with her pigtails has large eyes that exude innocence and excitement. As the family walks down a trail in the garden, the little girl holds her mother’s hand while the father holds the little boy’s hand. The smiles on the faces of everyone in the picture are large. One image of the little boy in front of the fence features his arms crossed and a look that displays mischief and happiness. A playful image features the children at a small table with a tea set. Both children have an inquisitive look while they are pretending to drink their tea. This family was wonderful to work with, and I hope to watch them grow in the future.
