Welcome to the world beautiful baby girl! Olivia Grace was born 3 weeks ago and is a bundle of joy. Her two brothers Dublin and Britain love their baby sister and are already very protective over her. It was quite the challenge to get them to sit still for the pictures! Many treats were involved haha! Olivia's nursery theme is world and travel theme which is perfect since the Martin family loves to travel.

I always knew I wanted to continue shooting maternity, newborns, and families alongside wedding photography. There is so much joy in capturing an image of a child exactly where they are at and freezing time in that moment. And it is even more fun when I am able to continue taking pictures of the same families year after year!

The Saberina-Claise family is officially a family of four! Baby Cyrus is a delightful bundle of joy. Arian loves having a baby brother to hold and take care of. He was adorable during the session giving him lots of kisses and love!

I love photographing families more than once because I get to see the kids change and capture their growing personalities. Jackson is no exception! He is a fireball of energy and joy. He has a new baby sister and it was adorable to watch him love on her! The Jesada family had a big time running around, playing in the leaves, and enjoying the crisp fall afternoon.

I have been so excited to share this post with you all! When Kim emailed me and told me she wanted to do a matching Christmas pajama shoot I was all in. Each year gets better and better photographing this family! Not only were there adorable Christmas pajama's, but these 5 also decorated one of the Christmas trees and shared hot chocolate with marshmallows. It was a cozy session at Ruhl's Tree Farm!

Fall was very busy for me this year! Lot's of wonderful family sessions with the beautiful leaves. I love living in a state that has all four seasons. I can't imagine not seeing the striking orange, red, green, and yellow leaves change every year. We did the Robertson family session at Lake Roland and not only were there still leaves on the trees, but the ground was covered as well!

Oh these three. I am lucky enough to have known them for 5+ years through our amazing Nevermore CrossFit gym and have stayed friends with them ever since. Stephen and Veronica got married a few years ago at Riverdale Manor and now have the cutest baby boy. Thomas is already a stud muffin and has the sweetest personality. He loves to laugh, smile, and crawl around everywhere!

The last time you saw this family on my blog was when Stephanie was pregnant with Wyatt! Now the sweet little red-head is running around and loving every minute. It was a brisk fall day when we did the Andrews family session at Oregon Ridge; hence the adorable bear hat! Owen didn't seem to mind and loved throwing leaves at everyone in the family.

You may have seen these two before on my blog from their downtown Alexandria engagement session or from their beautiful DIY wedding at The Athenaeum. These two are expecting their first baby in early 2018 and they couldn't be more excited! They also have two adorable American Brittany rescue dogs that couldn't wait to be a part of the shoot.
