Twin boys turn one! - Family Session {Northern Virginia Family Photographer}

I have had so much fun this year photographing twins -- especially twin boys!  Since my little twin guys are now 5 years old, I really enjoy getting to spend time with these other adorable little brothers -- these cuties just turned one!  Aren't they the CUTEST?!?  I loved being able to work with this beautiful family when their munchkins were newborns, and was so happy to photograph their one year photos!  These little guys are the happiest!  Always smiling and laughing.  They are such a treasure to photograph!  Here are a few from our fun session.  Thanks so much for looking!

Beautiful family - Meadowlark Gardens {Northern Virginia Family Photography}

One of the aspects of family photography that I love, is being able to watch the littles grow each year!  I have done several family photo sessions for this gorgeous family, including newborn photos of C, and it is incredible to see how they grow and change into these amazing little people!  Here are a few of my favorite images from the session.  Enjoy and thanks for looking!

Adorable twin boys - summer day in Reston {Northern Virginia Family Photographer}

I love taking photos of families and working with young children, but I get especially excited when I get to photograph twins, and in particular twin boys!  Not that I'm biased or anything, having twin boys of my own!  They remind me of what my little guys were like at that age.  These little munchkins are absolutely adorable and I loved getting to spend time with them and their beautiful parents.  Here are some of my favorite images from the session.  Enjoy and thanks so much for looking!  Don't forget to book your family session with me today!

Twins and their beautiful mother (northern virginia family photography)

During a very special mommy & me photo session, I was able to spend time with K & C, and their beautiful mama, and capture the pure fun they have together as a family!  From C's impish grin to K's infectious laugh, these twins have a blast together, and, they sure do love their mom!  I need to remind all of you moms (and dads) out there to get in the photo with your kids!  You will cherish the memories forever, and so will your children and grandchildren!  Schedule a yearly photography session and document your time together as a family!  The memories are so important!  Here are a few of my favorites from the session (there were so many to choose from!)  And, we had so much fun ending the session with a balloon race, that I needed to throw one of those images into the mix.  Enjoy and thanks for looking!

Sunny spring day - mommy & me sessions (northern virginia family photography)

I had the opportunity to do a very special mommy & me session for a gorgeous momma and her adorable twins!  Though rain was forecasted for later in the afternoon, we were able to take advantage of a beautiful spring day and get some fantastic shots in celebration of Mother's Day.  It is SO very important that moms get in photos with their children.  Time passes so quickly and these session images will last a lifetime!  Here are a few of my favorite images from the session.  Thanks so much for looking and enjoy!

Expecting mama | gorgeous light (NoVa maternity photographer)

A few weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to shoot a maternity session set up by the amazing Kate Juliet Photography.  It was such a joy to work with this expecting mama and her adorable little guy!  There is just something about sessions with mothers and sons that makes my heart melt.  We couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather!  It is difficult to pick out my favorites from this session, but here are a few.  Enjoy!!!

cutie twins turn one - cake smash (NoVa child photographer)

As a fellow mom of twin boys, I was thrilled when J asked me to take one year photos of her little guys!  I just can't BELIEVE these little sweet peas are already one. It was so much fun to see them experience eating a yummy birthday cake just for them!  P was a bit tentative, but B  went right at it -- with no hands!  These littles had such a blast with their cake that all their mother and I could do was giggle as they thoroughly enjoyed their delicious birthday cake!  Here are a few of my favorite images from the cake smash.

morning in the gardens (DC metro family photography)

On a beautiful Saturday this past fall, I met this beautiful family at Bishops Garden at National Cathedral to take their family photos.  It was a perfect day!  It was gorgeous outside and this family is just absolutely stunning and such a joy to spend time with!  The kids were able to explore and play in the gardens throughout their session and it was so much fun to watch them discover little ponds, colorful flowers, and little hidden alcoves.  It also happened to be mom's birthday and they had a full, fun day planned following our session.  It was such a perfect morning to start a birthday weekend!  This was one of my favorite sessions this year!  Here are a few of my favorite images from their session.  Enjoy!!

gorgeous family - beautiful fall morning (DC metro kids photography)

This fall I photographed one of my favorite couples and their adorable kids at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna, VA.  I have taken their family photos for the past few years and their sessions are an absolute joy to shoot.  This session was no exception!  The kiddos had a blast running around the large gardens and playing in the children's garden play area that Meadowlark has set up for the little ones.  Mom and Dad looked gorgeous and were able to enjoy the morning and spend some time together as a family on an otherwise hectic and normal weekday.  It was such a joy to spend the morning with them!  Here are a few of my favorite images from their session.  Enjoy!
