babies, families

I have SO many sessions and births from the past few months to share, but I’m starting with my most recent because I am absolutely in love with everything about this session. A sweet family with a squishy newborn, rambunctious (and adorable) older siblings, beautiful light, colors, and textures – basically the perfect in-home newborn […]

I’ve been a bit silent on my blog and social media and this is the reason why! Baby #3 is coming to our family this spring and the first part of pregnancy wipes.me.out. I am 24 weeks now and finally feeling really great! Which is good because I have a calendar full of births, first48’s, […]

babies, studio newborn photography

15 days after we welcomed baby Sana into the world, it was time for her newborn portraits. It was so fun to see this sweet family again in my studio, relatively well rested and enjoying settling in as a new family. Sana had very little interest in sleeping – I think she is an extremely observant […]

Shooting the newborn session for a family I’ve seen through maternity, birth, and first48 sessions is always a bittersweet moment…it is a celebration of this new human, this new family…and also a little sad for me because it is the last time I will see them for this chapter of their story! I so loved traveling to Marco and Sharon’s bright and happy DC apartment to capture these first family snuggles. This, right here, is why I love lifestyle newborn photography – the light and happiness of the home they have created for their family is in each and every photo.

  After missing Vida’s birth by mere seconds, I offered to come back the next day and capture some “first48” images for Marco and Sharon. A first 48 session is many things. It can be a beautiful follow up to a birth story session, after everyone has had a chance to get a shower and […]

It isn’t every day that you get to take photos for a close friend of yours, especially one that goes as far back as college days. Gwyneth and I met in the music department at the University of Maryland, and we’ve been lucky to stay friends ever since. A couple of years ago she and […]

Lia’s absolutely beautiful newborn session was a perfect example of why I shoot “lifestyle” and not “posed” newborn sessions – this girl knew what she wanted and she did NOT want to be put down! It’s a good thing that my absolute favorite thing to capture is the connection a new mom and dad have […]

After Theo was born, we were all so tired that I didn’t feel like I got as many “snuggle” images as I normally do after a birth. So less than 48 hours later I went back to hang out with Theo and his mom and dad for an hour to capture all of those beautiful […]

Finding the words for this blog post is hard for me this go around. This is a story of love, and dashed expectations, and more love. Pretty much nothing has gone as “expected” for this little family – a difficult pregnancy, a birth-center-to-hospital transfer-to-c-section, an unexpected medical condition that wasn’t detected on ultrasound and has […]

I love photographing newborns outdoors. It is rare that a mom feels good enough for an outing shortly after birth, so I do most of my newborn sessions in-home. So I was thrilled when, just one week after giving birth, Amber was up for beginning their session in their home and then driving to Jones […]

A couple weeks ago I met up with Marco and Sharon and their adorable three-week-old little boy, Jethro. I loved everything about this session – the love, the bright and happy studio apartment, the super chill baby who made this session a breeze. After being at a birth it is such a joy to see the […]

Photographing the newborn session for a family I have photographed from maternity to birth is always a little bittersweet for me. It is always so wonderful to see this new little family – tired, happy, in love. And always sad that my part in their journey is done. I absolutely adored being part of Brian […]

I love doing newborn photography sessions after doing maternity and birth for the same family : there is a beautiful satisfaction in seeing the journey from beginning to end, and seeing the beautiful fruit of all the anticipation and hard work. Baby Apolonia was sweet and sleepy and it was oh-so-easy to take beautiful photographs […]

  I loved hanging out with baby Fei just a few weeks after her hurricane birth. She is so beautiful – from her old-soul eyes to her full head of hair. Best of all, her family clearly adores her. It was such a joy to join them in their home for the final chapter of […]

Less than two weeks after her birth, I got the opportunity to hang out with baby Nathalie, her parents, and her big brother at their beautiful home. Nathalie was very awake, not wanting to miss a moment of her photoshoot. She was also very, very into nursing the whole time – as most newborn babies […]

I have absolutely LOVED chronicling the journey of Aaron and Karen and their sweet baby boy. Not only are they super cool people and amAZingly photogenic, their baby could win prizes for cuteness. He has the most awesome head of red hair, and an incredibly expressive face for one so young (he reminds me of […]
