Fall Glow

November 22, 2017

I’ve had the honor of photographing this extended family for many years… from maternity and newborn photos to where we were today, with a big family group.  We had the warm fall sun shining bright this morning, so I decided to embrace the sun flare in the photos.

In the Christmas Spirit

November 15, 2017

I’m grateful that this little girl’s mom asked for some holiday-themed studio portraits this morning.  It forced me to step a little outside of my normal studio work and tried a little something different with the Christmas lights.  I think they look especially nice with the closeup.  Our little model took a little while to loosen up, but by the end she was having a blast dancing around in her adorable puffy vest and boots.

Stripes all Around

November 6, 2017

I’ve lost count of how many years I’ve been doing family photos for this family, but it’s so nice to see the boys growing up and get a chance to photograph them year after year.

Warm Fall Days

October 25, 2017

It has been a little while since I’ve added some new photos to the blog.  I’ve been busy with my volunteer photography at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter, and I recently started an Instagram account featuring some of my shelter pet portraits (@shelterpetart).  But this week I was back outside for some fall portraits with this lovely family and their sweet pup.  He has grown quite a bit since I met him at our session last fall.

This was our third time around with a newborn session (I had done sessions for big brothers too 🙂 ) and baby sister was so patient the whole morning.  We were even able to replicate the family’s favorite teddy bear hat pose, this time with a little girlie flair.

Flash and Smile

These brothers were just the best little models for our photoshoot this week.  I met big brother back when he was just a toddler, and now he was back with this little brother.  Big brother was such a great helper, and little brother loved the studio lights so much he broke out in big smiles every time the strobe light flashed.

This Time in Pink

I was happy to welcome this family back for their 3rd newborn session, this time with their new baby girl!  She was such an amazingly patient and cooperative model for us as her brothers explored the studio (and beyond).   The boys spent some time admiring the large saltwater fish tank in the room next to my studio while we took photos of baby sister.

Robot Dance

This big-brother-to-be was very interested in every detail of my studio, and loved exploring all of my props.  His favorite toys were the ones he brought, his robot collection.  I think I need to get one of the sticky ones (see dad’s watch) for my camera for future sessions.

Baby Santa and his Candy Cane Sister

It was so nice to see these folks again, this time with a new (adorable) baby brother.  We’ve had some other sessions in between, but I took a look back at big sis’s newborn session to see how much she’s grown.  Here is one from her session in 2014.

Stop Messing with My Hair

November 23, 2016

It’s been a blustery few days and we postponed our session to avoid the last few gusty days, but even with the lighter winds yesterday, this sweet little girl still struggled to keep her hair from blowing around.  She wouldn’t let mom fix it and insisted on patting if back down herself.   And then in a somewhat funny coincidence, her new fluffy puppy started to tousle with her hair for the family photos, as if he were prodding her on.
