Waiting For Baby Number 4 | Loudoun County Maternity Photographer

Many times, new moms schedule a maternity session to document this amazing time in their life. And there is something so incredible about expecting your first little one. Everything is so new and so exciting, you don't know what to expect. And I absolute love the beauty of the anticipation of a couple waiting to become parents.

For this Mama, it was so much more. She never invested in maternity portraits for her children in the past. But knowing that this will be the last time she will be pregnant, she wanted to document this. Because expecting your last baby is just as exciting and emotional as expecting your first.

When you are a mom of young kids, it is so hard to imagine your life without a baby. You often feel like you are always pregnant or always changing diapers or covered in spit up or chasing a rambunctious 2 year old. It is hard. And so many times you say "this is it, this is my last baby".

But then it hits you... This is it. This is your last baby. This is the last time you will have that excitement of the first flutters or feeling him kick. This is the last time you'll have your bump. The last time. And you begin savoring every minute of it.

Pregnancy is so beautiful, whether it be your first or your last or any one in between. Expecting a new one always comes with new excitement, new joys, and new fears.

I love that this Mama chose to document her final pregnancy as a way to say goodbye to this stage of life. 

A beautiful way to pay tribute to a beautiful stage of life.

Sweet Baby Eloise | Loudoun County Newborn Photographer

10 little fingers...10 little toes.

Sweet baby, Eloise, you are completely perfect!

This gorgeous family welcomed this sweet little girl into their family just in time for the holiday season. What a perfect gift!

I adore that all of these children were named after classic literary characters! How fun is that?!

And it is so easy to see from these images, little girl, you are so very very loved!

7 Months. Emme's First Look | Round Hill Baby Photographer

7 months is one of my favorite ages. Not yet on the move but so much to explore. With a pair of brand new teeth and the biggest smile, it is so much fun to be 7 months old.

The Unbreakable Bond with your First Born Child | Leesburg Family Photographer

There is something about your first baby. She was the one who made you a Mama. You look at her and you see her both as a baby and a young woman. When did she get so big? Why does time pass by so quickly? She has taught you more about life and love and yourself than anyone ever could. She challenges you in ways you never knew existed. She pushes you to the edge of exhaustion and frustration and in the next minute melts your heart and you could not be any prouder of her. To her, you are her hero and her pillar of strength. You are her biggest supporter. Yes, there is something special about your first born. She taught you how to be a mother. And she is loved more than she will ever know.

There is never a wrong time to be photographed with your children. Portraits are tangible reminders how fiercely they are loved. Life is short, things change in the blink of an eye. I can not stop time for you, but I can freeze this moment for you both (and future generations) to cherish forever.

The G Family | Purcellville Family Photographer

I'll be honest, family sessions may be my favorite sessions to photograph. I love being able to capture their connection and the individual personalities that each member brings that makes each family unique.

I have had the privilege of photographing this family for the last few years. They have been huge supporters of mine as I grew my business and have been cheerleaders of mine since the very beginning. And this beautiful family are very special to me.

 When I look at these images, I can't help but smile. They radiate joy! There is so much love in this group. It's easy to see.

And these two boys...talk about personality. Sweet Tristan even brought his harmonica to play a little tune just for me.

Being able to photograph gorgeous families like this makes me so grateful that I pursued my photography dream. And I hope to be so lucky to continue to capture these sweet moments and freeze time for this family for years to come.

The Tyner Family | Leesburg, VA Family Photographer

Ahhh....Sweet Summertime!

When the air is warm, the sun is bright, and (in this case) our toes were sandy.

On this beautiful summer night, this family and I escaped to the beach. And this little guy was very excited to get his hands dirty.

18 months is always one of my favorite ages. They may have their own agenda and much more interested in exploring, and that is OK with me. I would much prefer to capture this little guys personality and curiosity. This sweet boy will only be a year and a half old once. But with these beautiful portraits, his Mama & Daddy can return to this magical summer night when their hands were sandy and their hearts were full of love.

Mama & Me in Tennessee | Loudoun County Baby Photographer

This past fall, I had the opportunity to travel to Nashville to attend a workshop with the amazingly talented Jenny Cruger of Jenny Cruger Photography, for her Motherhood Workshop.  During the workshop, we had the opportunity to all have a session with this gorgeous mother and daughter duo in her studio and in her field.

The love this mama has for her beautiful little girl just radiates throughout each image.

It was such a wonderful opportunity to learn and meet other extremely talented photographers. The workshop has left me with so many great ideas for the direction of Quiet Side Photography, and I can not wait to share them with you.
