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!

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!!!

sweet baby girl - welcome home (NoVa newborn photographer)

There is nothing that melts your heart like seeing a sweet and squishy newborn snuggling with mom and dad.  R is the most adorable baby girl!  I spent a few hours with her and her parents during the fall, just a few days after she was born.  She is absolutely perfect!  She was wide awake at first and then snuggled down to sleep towards the end of the session.  Here are a few of my favorite images from R's session.  Isn't she just a little darling?

beautiful mama - adorable twin boys (DC metro family photography)

In August I was asked to take some photos of this gorgeous mama and her 6 month old twin boys.  As a fellow mom of twin boys, I was so excited to get to spend time with her and her cuddly babies!  She has a beautiful home and we were able to take some fantastic shots both indoors and outdoors.  Not only did mom and babies get in the photos, but so did the oldest furbaby -- we couldn't leave him out!  Here are a few of my favorites from the day.  I hope you enjoy!
