I adore my returning clients. This beautiful family returned for their 3rd newborn session, and I believe I also got to see them for their maternity sessions and studio mini sessions. Now photographing 3 little ones, including a toddler and a newborn, means a lot of silly faces, toddler songs and some bribing. We got many beautiful family and sibling shots, and I am just so happy to see this family growing and doing so well, and I am even more honored and happy they return to me for their newborn sessions. Thank you, C. family!

Follow this link to see some of my favorites from the session, and I am not even including family shots in the blog post (which you just have to trust me were amazing!).

This sweet baby boy was so sleepy for his session, I am excited we got so many different looks, angles and poses (even some really cute smiles). Here is one of my favorite shots from the session.

It was my privilege to see these two lovelies again, I have photographed them several times over the years and it is amazing to see them grow and turn into beautiful, smart, happy kiddos! PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE PHOTOS FROM THE MINI SESSION.

If you love my work and would like to schedule a studio session for your child(ren), please email me at or give me a call at 202-251-6368. I do all sessions at my Reston photography studio, which is especially geared and set up for baby and child photography.

I have been doing newborn photography for nearly 10 years now, and I like to think that I’ve got most things figured out, even though I am still learning and improving every day!. Occasionally I still take a moment, step back, look at my own work and say “wow, did I really take this beautiful image?” Yes, I know, it is a total pat on the back. But it really puts things in perspective and reminds me why I do this! I love creating beautiful timeless images for my clients that they can cherish for years, and I love seeing them come back with their second, third, and even fourth (yes, I do have a few of those clients) newborns! And, wow, did I really take this beautiful newborn photo below?!

This sweet little man visited my Reston photography studio all the way from Virginia beach! His mom and him were visiting family members in the area and I am honored they set aside time to come by my studio for his first baby photo session! He was so sweet and dreamy, and I think these pictures are to die for. I love that mom picked a combination of blue and bold yellow for his pictures.

As a photographer, not only do I work out of my studio as a newborn photographer delivering timeless images for my portrait clients, but I have photographed portraits, landscapes and lifestyle imagery around the world for stock and commercial use. This is just one example of how such images are used. If you want to learn more, please check out my stock photography tear sheet page here (it does need to be updated to include a couple of years of recent work though).

I was also recently interviewed by Shutterstock, one of the world’s biggest and leading stock photography agencies, for a blog feature on working with babies and young children in the studio. It is such an honor to be featured on their website, as it is the first stock agency I ever joined and one of my absolute favorites.
