Emma is TWO! | Purcellville Baby Photographer

"A daughter is one of the most beautiful gifts this world has to give"

-Laurel Atherton

I can not believe that my baby is 2. My baby!!! The one who was just born what seems like 2 minutes ago, is now two years old. Time just flew by the third time around.

My Emme girl has been such a joy in our lives, and our little sunshine. She is almost always happy and her smile lights up our hearts. After two boys, it is so wonderful to experience a girl. She is so different than her brothers. She sits back and watches more, observing, she is already turning into such a little mama and making sure everyone is okay and comfortable. She often comes up and just starts rubbing our backs or stroking my face with a look of concern as she asks "you ok, mama?".  She loves her baby dolls and wearing everyone's shoes and carrying around "backpacks". But don't underestimate, this girl. She's a tough one. Maybe my toughest kid. I guess you have to be with 2 older brothers. As much as she has her quiet moments, she can hold her own in a wrestling match with her brothers. She is starting to become much more independent than her brothers were at this age. She hates the carseat, stroller, highchair, anything that restricts her. She's a big girl, and has places to go, she can't be slowed down or restrained.

Emma loves all things Moana and Poppy ("Trolls"). She loves her brothers so much and always wants to be with them. She adores her Daddy, and has him wrapped around her finger.

Emma is always always always dancing. I personally, can not wait to sign her up for dance lessons one day.

I love her crazy hair that no matter how much we tame it, it becomes unruly in no time. I hope her curls stay forever.

She is a sweet girl with a huge heart and so caring. She's a spitfire. She is a wonderful addition to our family.

Recently, I took her out to do her 2 year old pictures. And I will say, she loved every minute of being in a pretty dress and having some one-on-one time with her mama, hamming it up for the camera. These images truly capture who she is now. But my absolute favorites were when she was getting tired. When she began sucking her thumb and playing with her neck. This is something she always does, but I know it won't last forever. But it is something that I love about her.

Happy 2nd Birthday, sweet baby girl!

We love you so much and we are so excited to watch you grow.

Welcome to the World, Emmett | Northern VA Baby Photographer

"We never know the love of a parent, till we become parents ourselves"

-Henry Ward Beecher

One of the greatest honors as a newborn photographer is being able to photograph first time parents. There is something so special about these sessions. Because becoming a parent for the very first time changes your life, it changes who you are, it changes how you see the world. You prepared for months for the day you saw his face and held him in your arms for the first time, and no matter how you imagined it, it was nothing like the actual moment when you saw his face and held him in your arms for the first time. You never knew that you could love like this before. You knew you would love your child, but you had no idea just how powerful that love could be. You quickly realize, your entire life, your entire world, is wrapped up in this tiny person. And from that moment on, nothing would be the same again. For you are now a mother. You look down at your little boy, and you see yourself, you see your husband. And you have never had more purpose in your life before.

I absolutely love how simple and timeless these black and white portraits are of this beautiful family of three! But, what you can't tell from these images is that sweet baby Emmett had the best red hair! I'm a sucker for redheads (and secretly wished I was one), so we had to capture his beautiful head full of red hair for his parents to remember forever. After all, neither of his parents predicted red hair when the imagined what their baby boy would look like. I love fun surprises like that. And I am sure that baby Emmett will be full of surprises for the rest of his life.

Loudoun County Family Photographer | Adamson Family

Hands down, one of my absolute favorite parts of being a Motherhood Photographer, is our little community of extremely talented photographers. I am so fortunate to be a member of a really amazing group of women who are value inspiring each other, helping each other grow, and the overall community rather than competition. We raise each other up, rather than tear each other down.

They are my tribe. And I would not be here without their support, encouragement and the learning and growth we get from listening to other photographer's experiences.

So I was beyond honored when a member of my tribe from Alabama contacted me to photograph her beautiful family when they were here in Leesburg visiting their family.

If you haven't heard of Julie from Paisley Studios Photography, you really should go check out her beautiful work. She is amazingly talented. She is also a superstar Mama to 4 gorgeous children. I honestly do not know how she does it all, but she runs a successful business, home-schools her children, is an amazing wife and mother and handles it all with beauty and grace.

Truly, her reaching out to me to photograph her family was such an honor and it has been one of the most fulfilling sessions I have ever photographed. So much, in fact, that this past Christmas, Julie sent me a text saying that she had one of images from our session hand painted on a Christmas Ornament. This message, truly made my heart sing. How grateful I am that not only will these images be proudly displayed throughout her home, but also as a special family heirloom that will adorn her Christmas Tree each holiday season.

I can not explain how important my tribe is to me on my photography journey. And how incredibly grateful to have beautiful and inspiring women like Julie from Paisley Studios Photography in this amazing community.

Here are some of my favorite images from our session together. Her family is so beautiful, inside and out. And I hope that they venture up to Loudoun County again soon, or I may need to make a trip down to her!

Baby Daniel | Loudoun County Newborn Photographer

I was honored to photograph this beautiful family of four, when they welcomed their sweet little boy into their hearts and into their family.

His big sister completely adores her new baby brother. And the light this day was completely magical.

There was no shortage of love with this amazing family.

What a blessing for sweet Daniel to have these images from when he was only a few days old. These portraits are a tangible reminder how fiercely he was loved from the very beginning.

Welcome to the World, sweet Daniel. What a lucky little boy you are to be surrounded by such love.

Baby Grant | Alexandria, VA Newborn Photographer

There is something so special about photographing first time parents.

You spend 9 months in complete excitement about your new adventure and not knowing what to expect. And that the day arrives, when you hold your first child in your arms for the very first time, and you just know, your world will never be the same.

Your life has a new purpose, in a way that you didn't know existed before. Because, it didn't. You love more than you have ever loved before. You look at your partner, with such absolute appreciation and gratitude for giving you this perfect gift. You begin to have a whole new appreciation for your own parents, and all the sacrifices they made for you, that you didn't even know about or too young to realize.

You look at the world so much differently. Perhaps it's a bit scarier because you become so incredibly aware of every danger surrounding you. Perhaps it's a bit brighter and a happier place to be. You suddenly seem so connected to every mother that has ever existed.

And you never knew until this moment, that your heart could live outside of your own body.

There is so much beauty in motherhood (and fatherhood) and welcoming your first child into the world. It is a moment that has changed you, from this point on, you will never be the same again. And there is nothing else like this in the world.

I had the honor to photograph this brand new family of three. This gorgeous newborn portrait session was one of my favorites. It is impossible to look at these portraits, and not feel the love they have for each other. Not only for their brand new baby boy, but for each other. 

Welcome to the world, Grant. You are one lucky little boy to have parents who love you so much.

Northern VA Maternity Photographer | Awaiting Baby B

There are times when I am at a session, and I can just feel the magic in the air. This was one of those sessions.

There is a sense of magic when you are expecting your first child. Everything is so new and so exciting, and you just can not wait to meet him. The long 9 months is coming to end. Soon you will hold this beautiful boy in your arms and you will lovingly be welcomed into the wild ride of parenthood. It is exciting, it is scary, it is magical!

Hands-down, this is one of my favorite portrait sessions of all time. The love this gorgeous couple has for each other and for their little one on the way, is breathtaking. Their love is radiating through each image.

Mother Nature must have known that we were capturing something very special at this session too, because she put on her own show this evening.

The best sunset, beautiful parents-to-be, and so much love, there was something truly magical about this maternity session.

Loudoun County Newborn Photographer | Family of Five Newborn Session

Sometimes, I look at a new mother in total adoration. This was the case with this beautiful mama.

Welcoming a new baby is no easy fete, especially when you already have toddlers running around. But welcoming a new baby when you have 20 month old twins, and doing it all with patience and grace, is nothing short of amazing.

This mother radiates love and joy for her beautiful new family of 5.

This father is completely enamored for his house full of girls.

Sweet Hattie, you were meant to be in this family surrounded by so much love.

What a lucky girl you are.
