Northern Virginia Children's Photographer – Ryann Colleen Photography » Northern VA, Washington DC, and Maryland Newborn, Baby, Child, and Family Photographer

I had the pleasure of spending my Sunday afternoon with this sweet girl and her lovely family.  It was a gorgeous day to be outside, and a perfect day for a photo session.

Children of this age are so much fun to photograph.  It was hard to choose just one favorite, but here is a little preview from our session.

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall”  – F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Ah, my favorite time of the year is just beginning!  The light is golden and gorgeous in autumn, and it is the perfect time for some updated portraits of your family.

I am excited to announce that I will be holding two days of mini sessions this fall.  We will be shooting in Old Town Alexandria, one of my favorite spots, on October 3, and at Frying Pan Farm Park on November 7.  Frying Pan Farm Park is a new spot for me professionally, but one of my personal favorite places for photographing my own family over the years.  Both locations are gorgeous and will make a lovely background for your family’s session.

I had the pleasure of photographing the sweetest family and their stunning six-week-old baby girl on Sunday evening.  Here is a little glimpse into what I am working on from their session.

This sweet babe is so happy in her mama’s arms that she is fast asleep.  Don’t you love the heavy limbs and sleepy smiles of a slumbering baby?  Sigh.  These are the moments that lifestyle photo sessions capture so well for families.

This family is beautiful inside and out…  Warm, funny, and so much fun to spend the evening with.

Thank you for choosing me as your photographer and allowing me to document this chapter of your story.  I can’t wait to share your full gallery with you soon.  In the meantime, I’m wishing you nothing but happiness (and sleep) with your precious new addition!

I was so glad when this little guy’s mom contacted me to schedule a first birthday photo session.  Doesn’t this sweet boy have the most handsome baby blues?  And the way his little blonde curls are matched by the twirling ivy behind him…  I melt!
