First Birthday Photographs {Northern Virginia Baby Photographer}

“time is a tree (this life one leaf) but love is the sky and i am for you just so long and long enough” – e.e. cummings

It was a wonderful morning of celebration, family, love, party hats, and cake…  All to honor this sweet one year old baby boy.   I had so much fun helping one of my favorite families document this happy milestone.  Here are some of my favorite photos from the morning…

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to spring (finally!)!  Just a reminder that I will be taking some time off soon as I prepare to welcome baby #3!

I am currently scheduling sessions for mid-June and beyond.  If you are interested in reserving a date, please be in touch!

The Best Time to Photograph a Family {Northern Virginia Family Photographer}

“That it will never come again is what makes life sweet.”  - Emily Dickinson

I am often asked, “when is the best time to photograph a family?”

Before a baby is two weeks old and is still in that sleepy newborn stage?  When babies are first starting to smile, sit up, or walk?  First birthdays, first days of school?  Annual family portraits to be shared in holiday cards?

What about other stages of childhood that you want to remember?  My daughter recently lost one of her top teeth and the second is about to fall out…  these are smiles that I will want to remember for sure!

I think the best answer is now.  Never again will your family be exactly as it is now.  Whether your children are toddlers or tweeners, taking their first steps or settling into their first apartments.  Take out your point and shoots, call a photographer, capture it with your phone – just make sure you stop and catch it before it has changed once again!

I am so glad this wonderful family decided to pause for a photo session over the winter holiday.  One of these sisters was home from college and everyone was together in one spot to celebrate.  I loved documenting them doing what they love together, laughing, and just hanging out at home.  Imagine if they never stopped to capture this time.  I am so glad they did!

Spring Mini Sessions – Sign Up Before They Fill Up! {Northern Virginia Family Photographer}

spring 2014 mini sessions northern virginia

Are you ready for spring?…  

There is snow on the ground today, but close your eyes for a moment and picture a springtime afternoon in Old Town Alexandria. Beautiful golden light, daffodil blossoms, and gorgeous architecture. A perfect setting for updated portraits of your little ones, maternity photos, or photographs of your entire family!  

I am excited to offer all-inclusive mini session pricing this year. Mini-sessions will include twenty minutes of session time and will yield a gallery of 8-10 finished images. The investment is $650 and includes all of the digital images from your gallery, which is a tremendous value when compared with typical digital collection pricing.  Albums, prints, and canvases are also available a la carte if you wish to upgrade.  

Saturday, March 1  (rain date: Sunday, March 2)

Mini sessions are always popular and space is limited, so please sign up A.S.A.P. if you are interested!

It is so much fun photographing people doing what they love, and I absolutely adored working with this family of four on Saturday afternoon.

I hope you enjoy a little peek into what I am working on this week.  Thank you again for having me over (and for the fabulous concert!), F. family.  I can’t wait to share your gallery with you!
