Newborn T | NOVA Newborn Photographer

NOVANewbornPhotographer

I photographed baby T at his home in Arlington, Virginia. His mama allowed me to post images without identifying information, but I've decided to take it a step further and not include images of this adorable little guy's family. But take it from me, they are beautiful! One of the first things I noticed about their home was that it was pretty much my dream decorating. I'm sure T's mama thought I was insane, but I thought this adorable little horse family on their window represented them, mom/dad/sister/brother.

Also, I get the biggest kick out of newborn facial expressions. Baby T did not disappoint!

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!

Newborn Luke | Leesburg VA Newborn Photographer

I met Luke's mama in my hospital new mother's support group when she had her daughter, who coincidentally was born in the same hospital on the same day as my son. We might have even passed each other shuffling through the halls in our hospital gowns. Well, I would have been shuffling, I'm sure Olga was skipping out of the hospital! Our children are now good friends, and so are we. Obviously I was beyond thrilled that she asked me to photograph this sweet guy. 

Olga and her husband took my prep guide very seriously which was AMAZING. When I travel to homes for newborn sessions, I strongly suggest to new parents that the rooms where I'll be shooting be around 80 degrees to keep the star of the show warm and happy. Olga and Matt followed directions diligently, and that played a big part in the session being such a success.

With it being so toasty, we got the family shots out of the way first, and then we all sweated it out in the sauna while baby Luke did his job as an excellent model.
