Formal Portraits + Cake Smash: Elena

This was such a fun session! Baby Elena and her parents are such a joyful, silly family. They decided to take things up a notch and have a more formal family portrait session. We started with a few more traditional posed shots, but with a baby, it’s hard to make anything tooo formal. Even on the floor, their chic outfits and Elena’s “black swan” dress, as her Dad referred to it, looked amazing!

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!

Winter Extended Family Session

I love getting to meet new clients because often we immediately connect as more than client and photographer, but as sisters, daughters, wives, and humans. Allyson (above left) reached out to me last fall because she had something really special in mind. As a gift to her parents for their 65th birthdays, she wanted to coordinate a photo session for their entire crew while on vacation.

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.

One Year Cake Smash: Teddy

Baby Teddy! Oh my gosh do I love doing these cake smash sessions. Kevin and Amanda received a photo session with me for Teddy’s first birthday from a family member. I shared with them that we could do a lifestyle session at a location of their choice or a cake smash and I was delighted that they chose the cake!

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.
