Yes, things have been extremely quiet around here since we welcomed our newest love to our family. One of my new year’s goals (well, really, the only goal I set for myself) is to catch up on blogging last year’s sessions. It’s going to be basically impossible to blog them all. A maternity session seemed perfect for kicking things off. I absolutely love maternity sessions, especially family maternity sessions with an excited and adorable big sister like this one! She has grown so much since her own newborn session just last year. Bittersweet for sure how quickly time flies.

We met up on a very warm morning for a documentary session at one of their favorite local spots. Of course, their sweet Lab got to join in on the fun again. “Big” sister directed the show :) She explored the lake, played with her parents, jumped, giggled and called for a snack break like toddlers do.

I wish I had invented these snack traps. They’re genius.

Since our session, they’ve welcomed another adorable little girl to their family. Congratulations again!! She’s in good hands, because she has the “most awesome sister ever” :) I love thinking back to how pregnant I also was for this session.

 

Oh, my goodness, this was a fun session! Two-year-old twins!! I absolutely adore this age and loved the double dose of cuteness. I had a blast chasing them around with my camera (in case you’re wondering, two-year-olds rarely sit still for longer than 2 seconds) and watching their fascination and excitement over pretty much everything around them. It is seriously one of the best ages! Plus, two-year-olds are hysterical little chatterboxes, learning new words all the time and using short sentences. My favorite part of our time together may have been Little Miss getting her brother pumped up for their post-session treat of ice cream: “I QUEEM, Coopy, I QUEEM!” She clearly is a bigger fan of ice cream than her brother :)

I was so happy when we lucked into the most beautiful, crisp, sunny spring day for this session! After several days of heavy rain and wind, the blooms were hanging onto the trees still and looked picture perfect for this sweet family’s photos. And for the icing on the cake, we were practically the only people out that afternoon. If you’ve ever ventured out to see the cherry blossoms here in DC or Northern Virginia, you know that’s a nearly impossible feat as the trees are swarmed by tourists and locals when they are in bloom. It was perfect, and I loved my time getting to know these young parents with their baby boy. Isn’t he a doll in those adorable overalls?! He was such a calm and happy baby, watching me curiously as I photographed him with his parents. Did I already mention that this session was perfection?

when one of your photographer friends is visiting dc with her family, it obviously calls for a meet up to get some new family photos of each other! but talk about being nervous to photograph another photographer’s family, friend or not. i was super nervous. which was silly, of course, since emily is one of the sweetest people!

we met up on a cloudy day amidst the cherry blossoms and beautiful spring blooms, because that was her request: a family session with the cherry blossoms. it is what dc is known for in the spring after all. so what if we actually met up in northern virginia :) needless to say, i had a blast catching up with her, getting to know her 3 boys and photographing her adorable family. don’t they look like a super fun family to hang out with? too bad they live so far away, because i know our boys would be the best of friends.
