Studio Family Session | The Doughertys

Rose is such a cutie patootie! She and her parents joined me for a modern studio session on Sunday. Baby and toddler sessions are always fun because you never know what to expect. Shyness, melt downs, giggles, tears, blowing bubbles, yanking your head band off fifty times, dancing, a lot of snacks, etc. is all part of it and is why I love these sessions.

One Year Old | Adeline

Sweet Adeline! This little lady is one year old now! Her sweet family came to my home studio to celebrate the occasion last weekend. We laughed, danced, sang, and ate gummies (a little bribing is ok!) to create some adorable family photos and individuals of Addy. Her big brother Ethan was a great example by posing for each shot!

Pink Floral Cake Smash: Sofia

Sweet baby Sofia. This little lady turned one recently and her adorable family came over to celebrate with a cake smash session. Sofia’s mom, Maria, wanted to keep things clean and simple for the theme. This is why I always allow families to bring their own props and cake! There are so many styles and I want the images to match your vision, not a set of props I could pick out and provide.

At-Home Newborn Session: Helena

Wow, there is so much I could say about this beautiful family. In the brief time I have now known them, they have unknowingly become a great source of inspiration in my life. Andrew teaches elementary school in Washington, DC with my husband Patrick. They are often confused for each other as two young men walking around school with the same haircut, wearing glasses and practically the same outfits.

Cylburn Arboretum Family Session: The Andersons

This was such a special shoot. Russell, Patti, and baby Jane were the perfect subjects last weekend when we visited the Cylburn Arboretum for their family session. My husband Patrick grew up with Russ’ younger brother Sam (their houses see into eachother’s kitchens) and I have been lucky enough to spend time with the entire Anderson crew since Pat and I started dating seven years ago.

Cake Smash: Cillian Turns One

Baby Cillian couldn't believe his eyes when we set his little "one" cake down in front of him. His happy parents encouraged him to taste it, but he couldn't help but keep looking up at them with these wide, are-you-sure-I'm-supposed-to eyes. After much coaxing and even a taste from Dad to "show him how it's done," we convinced him that the cake was not, indeed, a trick and that he was allowed to dive in.

At-Home Newborn Session: Baby Bennett

When I was three years old, a kitten with a smashed paw showed up on our back steps late one night. My parents thought it had been stepped on by one of the cows next door and immediately rushed it to a family friend veterinarian. When the kitten came home a few days later from the vet with three legs, we had all fallen in love with him. He was now our cat and I was allowed to name him! I don't remember this, but my mom says I immediately said "Luke!" after my best friend at the time :)
