The Most Underrated Season for Family Photos | Ashburn VA Family Photographer

Summer family photos in wildflowers Ashburn VA

I'm going to start this post by dropping a bit of "bad" news.  I'm fully booked for fall photo sessions.  It's true.  I have nothing available from September through mid-November, but I'm not going to apologize or chastise you for waiting too long to schedule your family's photo shoot because I have a little secret that you… Continue reading The Most Underrated Season for Family Photos | Ashburn VA Family Photographer

Terrible Twos (yeah, not so much) | Ashburn, VA Family Photography

best family photography ashburn va

I don't know about you guys, but when my children were two years old, they weren't exactly what I would call "easy to work with."  😉  As a family photographer, I love working with children of all ages, but two-year-olds have to be one of the hardest ages to photograph.  They're usually pretty willful and aren't typically… Continue reading Terrible Twos (yeah, not so much) | Ashburn, VA Family Photography

A little photo session with my daughter | Ashburn, VA Family Photographer

Ashburn VA Family Photos

Hi all!  I recently rediscovered these photos that I took of my daughter last summer and am already feeling nostalgic.  Why do they have to grow so fast? I was inspired for this photo session when my in-laws brought back a beautiful pink masquerade mask from their visit to Italy last year, and I thought it would… Continue reading A little photo session with my daughter | Ashburn, VA Family Photographer

A Willowsford, VA Family Photography Session

Willowsford Family Photography

When my husband and I first drove into Willowsford over two years ago, at the recommendation of some friends who knew we were house-hunting, we were both immediately smitten. Moving from Arlington to Ashburn, Virginia was a big change for our family (what do you mean there aren't 3 Target stores within a 5 mile… Continue reading A Willowsford, VA Family Photography Session

It all works out for the best | Loudoun County Family Photographer

Loudoun County photographer

I can't tell you how many times this has happened. A child gets sick for their photography session, or the weather becomes horrible, or a baby is born earlier or later than planned, and we need to reschedule the photo session.  Seems like it would be pretty frustrating...  The strange thing is, that in each of… Continue reading It all works out for the best | Loudoun County Family Photographer

This Post is for Laurie

Niemann-Pick Type C Disease

When you get pregnant, you can't help but daydream... you dream about holding your baby and singing her to sleep.  You dream about dressing him up in cute clothes and sending him off to school.  You dream about high school dances, colleges, weddings and grandchildren.  What you are terrified about, from day one - literally… Continue reading This Post is for Laurie

Photo of two boys sitting on pumpkins at a farm in Northern Virginia

I apologize in advance for the incredible number of photos in this gallery!  If you made me choose between doing newborn photography and family photography, I'm sure I couldn't!  I just love them both so much! When I moved out to Ashburn this fall, I quickly scouted out new locations for my photos, so many… Continue reading Late 2012 in Review – Family Photos
