Family Love {Alexandria Va Family Photographer}

Family Love Alexandria Va Family photographerFamily Love {Alexandria va family photographer}

nd I’ve enjoyed every single one of them. To pin point it exactly why, I think it’s because it all comes down to love and holding on to special memories.  I know this comes with a lot of cheese. Spoonfuls, in fact, of cheesiness. But hear me out before I lose you.   I’ll use this amazing family as my example.  There was so much  joy from this family and the love for their little boy,  limitless.  There’s just something about family portraits that’s so meaningful that I can identify with.   I can only guess that this comfort level comes from  seeing through my client’s parental eyes because I too am a parent. These Moms and Dads are beaming with pride at their beautiful children.  Most of the time, the children are knee-high. But it doesn’t matter, a parent’s love is still evident even in the teen years. I can see it!  I can relate to their desire to capture this specific time in their life.  I’m right there at that moment, in my client’s shoes,  trying to make time stand still for a little while longer before their little ones grow out of the cute stage their in, before they grow out of the wonderment of the little things, before they grow out of their innocence.  And that’s my job and what I truly enjoy and get to do. I get to freeze time for families and help them hang it up on a wall. Every time they pass by the treasured photos on their mantles, hallways, or entry, my wish is that they are flooded with those good memories they were trying to hold on the day they were created.                        Family Love {Alexandria va Family Photographer}

The Purple Goose {Alexandria Va Photographer}

At the end of the last year I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot at The Purple Goose,  Alexandria’s premier children’s clothing store, located in the heart of Del Ray, Alexandria Va.   If you live in Alexandria, I’m sure you’ve been in the store.   The staff is extremely friendly. All. The. Time! I go there because not only do they have clothes you can’t find anywhere else but for their great customer service and always lively conversation with staff.  By luck one day I was chatting with Linda, one of the owners, and discovered that their photographer had moved out of town. And talk about being at the right place at the right time, we ended up coming together to create the first ever Purple Goose Holiday Collection series. As you can see from the images below, they had the most amazing holiday dresses for little girls with the frills and the texture and matching jackets, we just had show them off! Those of you with little girls can relate to my oohs and ahhs, and I may have squealed at the pink frilly numbers. But I digress. Today I wanted to share even more Purple Goose good news!  I am the official photographer for The Purple Goose and we’re teaming up for a pretty spectacular spring project. We are looking to you, Purple Goose fans, to help us create our first on-line Purple Goose Magazine.  The magazine will be a look book for spring and summer wear as well as articles from local vendors.  We need models;  1 to 12 years old to showcase the spring and summer clothing lines.   What better models than The Purple Goose fans!  If you’d like to enter your child in our model search here are the details:

Baby Makes Three {Alexandria Va Maternity Photographer}

That’s right, baby will indeed make three! This session was taken a couple weeks before baby was born although you would never have guessed how far along this mama was. She was full of energy and excitement. She was beautiful with that pregnancy glow and was such a natural in front of the camera. Dad was already a doting father at the mention of his daughter he had yet to meet. The sweet smile on their faces as they showed off the pretty yet sporty baby Nike’s  was a tell tale sign that their little Emma may be a princess but she will have strength and character.  Here’s to years of laughter and joy and to savoring every second with their little one.

Alexandria Va Newborn Photographer

Alexandria VA Newborn Photographer

I love how creative moms-to-be are getting at sharing their news with their friends and family. Exhibit A- Mama  purchased these cute little baby shoes and wanted to incorporate them in photos when announcing the gender of the new member of their family.  I immediately pictured all their shoes lined in a row including new baby’s. Photographs are such a fun way to share the joy with loved ones, aren’t they?  Newborn shoots are one of my favorites but I think the ‘we’re-expecting-photos’ are just as cute. There are so many creative ways to tell your story with photographs.  Let’s come up with something together.  Alexandria va newborn photographer

If you’re looking for just a maternity session, we suggest coming to our studio! We can do your makeup in studio as well as recommend beautiful timeless outfits. Coming soon-we’ll have an array of gowns so all you have to do is bring yourself!
