Pippin's Sitter Session | Northern Virginia Baby Photographer

Despite the best laid plans, sometimes babies just can't get down with photo shoots. And in their defense, it can be stressful for an adult, imagine it from the point of view of a baby that hasn't been hanging around on this earth for very long. There's a bright light, a crazy lady making noises, outfit changes, new textures, all in all it's a break from a baby's daily routine.

Pippin's mama and I planned her session after what should have been her morning nap, but this little nugget wasn't having any of that! She did get a little snooze on her way to my home studio, but we maaaaaaay have woken her up a bit too early. Once we started our session, Pippin wasn't 100% sure of me, but thanks to her mom and a fidget spinner, we got some shots where it didn't look like she hated me.

But seriously, isn't she just the most beautiful baby?

Oliver's One Year/Cake Smash Session | Ashburn Baby Photographer

Oliver's mama contacted me and gave me the biggest compliment ever from the get-go, which I have to share here:

"I’m based in Ashburn as well and wanted to support local entrepreneurs. I’m searching for a family photographer to capture my son as he’s turning one and I love the pureness and joy expressed by the kids you’ve photographed and posted. I am a fan of kids being kids in their own element and surroundings and not so much staged studio photos, so I’m definitely a fan of your work!"

Talk about the best compliment ever! When we met at the session, both mama and Oliver were the sweetest people, beautiful inside and out. Speaking of beautiful...will you take a moment to bask in the glory of this little one's hair? Isn't it magnificent? It's no wonder that Oliver's mama is a very talented hair stylist located in Ashburn. Definitely check her out at https://www.tresshairco.com/

Cora's One Year Studio Session | Ashburn Baby Photographer

Cora has been a fighter from day one, and she continued to fight through our one year session! She's come such a long way from her newborn session, and with her mama being one of my closest friends, it was so meaningful to be able to document this milestone as well. Enjoy this fiery strawberry blonde/redheads pics!

Henry's First Birthday | Ashburn VA Family Photographer

You might be noticing a theme here...I met Julie through my hospital's new moms group following the birth of my son and hers. She has been a huge supporter of my work, and has booked sessions time and again, and it's such an honor to be able to photograph her adorable guys as they grow. William, her son who's the same age as mine, gives me an excellent workout during our shoots, as I find I spend a lot of time chasing him around. But I honestly love that, I get to capture real images of who William is, mischief and all. And get to my 10,000 step goal quicker too!

Julie asked me to do some first birthday pictures of Henry along with some family shots. First off, this family always come dressed and coordinated impeccably. On top of that, Julie always has multiple ADORABLE outfit options for the boys, and for this session she even came with balloons and a birthday hat for Henry. And on top of that, they're always in good spirits and such good sports, even when nature is out to get them (sorry Chris!)
