Photographing families for the Ijamsville Living magazine is such a joy. This family of six had an absolutely gorgeous home and backyard, and spectacularly sweet and lovely children! All four kids are talented, smart, sweet and funny, and they were awesome to photograph together playing and having fun in their yard and home. This family loved spending time together and were laid back and genuinely loving together.

We photographed all over their beautiful home’s backyard which was filled with such gorgeous light and pretty natural elements like rocks, logs and foliage. I loved photographing this beautiful family and am excited to share their sneak peeks with you all! Enjoy!

Meeting this sweet baby boy as a 2 week old was such a joy for me! I have been photographing his amazing family for years now, and photographed his big brother as a newborn himself a couple years back. This sweet baby is the third baby in this awesome family, and bonus points that his name is Heath!! Just like my own baby boy – which made this an extra special session for me. I’ve never photographed another baby boy named Heath so this was unique and so special. Big sis and big brother were SO proud to have a new baby in their family, and were absolutely precious with him. Baby Heath was wide eyed and alert for some of the session, giving me great eye contact and the sweetest little expressions. Then for the rest he slept soundly which let me curl him into the sweetest little newborn poses and get some amazing images. Mama and daddy brought some amazing props to use (a surfboard!) and had a great vision of ocean colors for the session. I particularly loved the parent images with baby Heath, as they were so amazing with him and beautiful. They were just the sweetest family together and I loved photographing this amazing baby boy! Enjoy these beautiful sneak peeks of this cute 2 week old newborn baby!

I have a few working relationships with select commercial companies that create beautiful products for children, parents and babies that I do product photograph for, and these swaddle blankets from Teal & Finch were incredible. I met these sweet babies at my studio so that they could model for these cute swaddling blankets and they were just awesome. These babies were a bit older than your typical newborn who you swaddle, as they were 3 months and 7 months! They loved being swaddled up and the blankets themselves were so stretchy and cute that they looked amazing in them. Enjoy these sneak peeks of these cute commercial studio photos!

My precious friend’s baby girl is one of my favorite people to photograph. I photographed her newborn session and was so excited to have her back in my studio for some beautiful sitter session portraits. I asked her mama to wear a neutral cream dress, which I think keeps the focus on the baby and the mama and the interactions between them, instead of distracting the eye to bright bold patterns in clothing. I love the sitter session age for portraits because it is the first time babies are sitting up to check out the world around them, and there is such a variety of poses we can do with baby alone. From sitting up to laying down on their belly to leaning against pillows and sitting in chairs and on blankets – it’s the sweetest milestone! I love how happy babies are at this stage too which huge big amazing smiles for me. They havnt usually hit the separation anxiety phase which can start around the first year, so it’s an awesome time to capture that baby stage but before they’re off and crawling and running and upset that they’re without their parents for a few images. This session was one of my favorites in my studio yet, and I loved having these two favorite people with me for this beautiful session. Enjoy the sneak peeks of this amazing baby girl and her lovely beautiful mama!

I’ve loved photographing this gorgeous family through the years – ever since baby sister here was in mama’s cute belly a few years ago! I’ve photographed them typically in the Fall, but this year we tried a summer session during the golden hour in the evening and it was magical. We met up on their family’s farm in Northern Virginia, right outside of Washington DC and it was a perfect summer night. The light was streaming through the trees, over the wooden fence and passed cute little horses walking nearby. These kids are absolutely precious, and such beautiful little people! I love how they cant get enough of playing together, laughing and tickling and being super sweet.

Little sister here was not as interested in having her photo taken this night as her big brothers were, but I had mom and dad play naturally with her and we still got so many amazing beautiful images of her having fun and being herself. Big brothers here are such good sports during photosessions, and they even had some of their own ideas to try out and photograph. There is so much love flowing between everyone in this family it’s just impossible to not fall in love with all of their images every time. Enjoy these beautiful sneak peeks of this gorgeous family!
