Family Portraits

Sisters from Afar / Bethesda Family Reunion Photographer

Ever since I began photographing weddings almost two decades ago, I've had the privilege of experiencing the happiest of days with my clients. From first birthday parties to family reunions, I am always honored to have been asked to capture these precious moments. This session was a reunion between two sisters - one who flew in all the way from Iceland! They were adorable together in their matching pink dresses. And, they loved each other so! 

Rock Star or Future Scientist! / Eastern Market Children's Photographer

This two-year-old is destined for greatness. She was savvy, stylin' and silly. We had a great time stomping (literally) around Eastern Market in Washington, DC for this family portrait session. I hope you enjoy some of the images from this session. Can you feel the two-year-old energy?!

Fall Family Portraits / Chevy Chase Outdoor Portrait Photographer

I love this family. They are so sweet together. When I arrived, the boys ran to the door to great me as if I was part of the family and they were looking forward to my visit! I got to hear a lot about their favorite things, and we spent some time inside and outside of their home capturing them in action. I've included a few favorites from their session below. And, because it never ceases to amaze me how quickly children grow...I've also included a few images from their maternity and newborn sessions from when their oldest was just 7 days old. Time flies, and children just keep getting cuter!

And, here are a few from their prior sessions! How did that little baby grow so fast?!

Growing Up / Vienna, VA Family Photographer

It is always amazing to see how my clients' children grow over the years.  This family and I always seem to meet on holiday weekends!  Our last session was Memorial Day, and this session was Labor Day.  But the years in between meant they went from a family of three to a family of four -- with two amazing boys!  I've included some of my favorite images from this year's session below.

Loving Little Ones / Olney Family Photographer

It is amazing that at every session, in just about one hour, I feel like clients become family. I spend time playing with the little ones, and get to see their personalities shine through. I get to chat with the adults about sleep and feedings. It's truly a wonderful perk of the job for me. This session was such fun, and I'm so happy I got to meet these clients. They are beautiful inside and out, and I think it shows in the images. I've included some thumbnails here, and you may see a few on my new web site as well.

The Lovely First Year / Silver Spring Family Photographer

This little girl was one of the happiest one-year-olds I've ever met. We ran and explored her home, and then went outside to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings in Silver Spring, MD. I've selected just a few to share here. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
