A Birthday Party To Remember

I thought I’d finally share some images of NBC 4’s  Angie Goff’s son’s 3rd Birthday party. This took place at Busy Bees, one of my favorite places for little ones because it’s tailored just for little ones but also because they have amazing custom parties. If you have a theme in mind, my friend, Natalia will deliver! And when I say deliver, she will go above and beyond your expectations.  Exhibit A- Bob’s At The Bottom Of The Sea Party.  To see more images from this fun filled party you can visit Angie’s blog.

Sitting Pretty and Cake Smash Sessions

sitting pretty and cake smash sessions

I absolutely love Newborn Sessions!  Because it’s so much fun watching little ones grow, I’m now offering  Sitting Pretty and Cake Smash Sessions!

Sitting Pretty sessions  are fun and unique for babies 6-10 months old.  6 months is such a fun age. Baby is doing so much and so quickly! They’re sitting up and are really engaged with you which makes it a perfect time to document this stage. We offer a different way to remember baby with our custom Flowertot bonnets or Furbaby hats.  It doesn’t get much cuter! We can also do photos in a more simple setting too. Either way, your family and friends will absolutely love your images and you’re going to look back at these images with a smile.

I’m also happy to add on Cake Smash sessions because turning one should be lots of fun! This is a great way to capture baby’s curiosity and personality. It’s one big, beautiful mess and I love it!

Because it’s so difficult to pick from these 3 sessions, you can have your cake and eat it too!  With the Grow With Me Plan, your baby can have all 3 sessions capturing baby’s milestones; Newborn Precious and Posed, Sitting Pretty, and Cake Smash!  This would make an amazing gift for any expecting mom! We offer gift certificates!

Baby Girl A

Baby Girl A Northern Va newborn Photographer 

Baby Girl A has been hamming it up for the camera since day 1! Her fabulous Mom and aunt gush as they show me the adorable photos on her phone.  Seems natural for this cutie, who was 5 days old at the time of the shoot,  to be in front of bright lights.  In her sunny kitchen on this cold and rainy morning, it was a steamy 80 degrees. Perfect newborn photography temperature.  Yes, it has to be a warm environment to capture the cute photos.  This is why this cutie hardly made a peep and was deep in newborn slumber.  And now without further adieu and for all to enjoy….

Baby Aurora {Alexandria Va Newborn Photographer}

Just a little peek at cute Baby A.   With doting parents and grandparents there, she was the center of attention.  Of course she help it!  Baby A was so sweet.  She was awake for her session but she finally succumbed to that baby slumber that awaited her.  I figured putting Baby A in soft colors would suit her sweet disposition. She’s a sweet angel and for her session I saw her floating on white clouds and soft hues.  I’m such a big fan of this cutie but perhaps her biggest fan may be her big brother who watched our every move.  He couldn’t help but be curious at what this woman with a camera was doing with his baby sister.  I told him I was just borrowing her for a bit.  I’m so thankful that families allow me to “borrow their” little ones.  I treasure every moment and I’m so happy to help preserve this fleeting newborn moment.

I love when parents want both family and newborn portraits.   There’s so much beautiful, happy emotions into these special sessions. Everyone seems to have a glow about them and big brothers or sisters show their soft, loving side.  It’s really a beautiful thing.  The light and mood was perfect for this session. Everything was perfect including the unbelievably beautiful spring day. Everyone was warm with positive energy.  Welcome Baby C.  You are so loved!

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 Ethan {Alexandria VA Newborn Photographer}

Every time I have a newborn photography session, I swoon. Newborn sessions are one of the most difficult sessions yet I love doing them. The fact that I’m the one chosen to photograph this little person for his debut is really quite an honor.  It’s hard not to love what I do.  Baby Ethan was only a few days old when we met.  He had his first full night’s sleep the night before so I wasn’t sure if he would be awake for our morning session.  Baby calls the shots on all newborn sessions and if  baby isn’t ready for the session, we wait.  And wait…and wait.  We rock. Mom feeds. And we wait some more.  In the end, it’s always.  Always! Worth it.  Now back to beautiful baby Ethan. Isn’t he a beautiful,  sweet, boy?  His biggest fan by far is his big sister.  Just look how smitten she is!  Mom and Dad are fans, too; beaming with pride and thankful for their beautiful family.
