Photography of weddings, children, places, and people.

Posts from the Kids Category

Oh man, y’all… Blogging… What can I tell you? It’s obviously not my thing. So I’ll skip the apologies and just share some of my favorite pictures and families from over the past couple (uh… six?) months.

I’ve done maternity sessions that quickly turned into newborn sessions (did you know that when you hire me to take pictures of your baby it’s also mandatory that I get to snuggle with your baby?), I’ve had 8,032 family sessions for the Christmas season (I love family sessions with all my heart), and an awesome, amazing, wedding (Weddings! Who knew that they would quickly become my favorite thing to do!).

Without further ado…


Oh that glorious, shining light in these kids 🙂

(I couldn’t decide between these two pictures.. I mean really, could you? Look at those CHEEKS!)

Weddings! Brides, listen up… You want to do a first look before your wedding, seriously. It’s one of the most amazing intimate moments you will get with your groom all day long. They will still tear up and get all emotional on you when you walk down that aisle, even if they’ve seen you already 🙂

Phew! It was an amazing fall/winter/spring time for me with these lovely people! I can’t wait for the summer time, I know it’s hot, but that’s why you have hoses, water guns and swimsuits! Because whose kid doesn’t look super adorable in a swimsuit?

If you’re looking for some new, fresh family photos, now is the perfect time! If you have a new squishy one that needs to be cuddled, I mean captured in photos, they will only be this age once, get them in print before those little piggies become big piggies.

Thanks to all my families for allowing me to be part of your life, if only for a short period of time. I treasure these moments, and I hope you do to!

Remember about 10 months ago when I posted about that cute little 4 week old baby? Well in less than a month, she will be ONE YEAR OLD! Sweet Moses! In an effort to hold on to her tininess (although, she’s not so tiny in these pictures), we did a mini-shoot at the Reston Town Center. Mina has SO MUCH personality! She is such a little firecracker 🙂 She definitely lets you know what is on her mind in any way that she can. And as cranky as she can be, she is 10 times happier. She loves, loves to laugh and smile. And she watches everything, taking it all in. She started army crawling at 8 months, crawling full time at 8.5 months, and now at 11 months is getting ready to walk.

Enough talk, here’s the cute kid:

She loves playing with my camera strap:


You can’t tell in this picture, but she has 5 teeth and seems to be working on 18 more…….. I hate teething.

Little baby, big world.


Seriously. Even though she is up at all times of the night, this smile during the day makes me forget how exhausted I am!

Ok, those eyes make me forget too.

I love you with all my heart, Mina Star. I cannot imagine life without you, you are such a shining joy in our lives 🙂
