Holy sweetness, how one grows up so fast! Maryland Children’s Photographer, Virginia Family Photographer

I need to dig up the image and I know it is on my blog somewhere but I had the privilege again of photographing another repeat client in the fabulous weather yesterday. I have the most beautiful 30×30 B&W canvas on an easel in my office (at my former studio) of this boy when he was around 8 months old. This particular image was also chosen and used in the 2009 Media Kit for Professional Photographer Magazine. J, now just over 3 years old I most definitely would not have recognized aside from those beautiful eyes he has .. mom and dad have not changed a bit! Off topic, I wanted to thank J for his incredible service to our country as he is off shortly on an 8 month tour again. God Bless you .. (a sneak peek for now)

9 day old newborn, her room designed in an exquisite pink & brown palate scheme… Alexandria newborn photography, Virginia newborn photographer

her room (mini palace) fit for a tiny princess! Mom wanted a few images done (so did dad once he found out) in proud dad’s home office. A few sneak peeks, congratulations on the birth of your new baby.

Peter Frampton Friday Frenzy from a Fanatic - steering off topic of photography

Anyone who *knows* me, can blurt out that I am truly a fanatic over any and/or all of Peter Frampton’s music. Soothing, beautiful, charismatic, romantic .. just downright the best. Some may say, Peter Frampton .. who? ha

My favorite song on so many different levels of reason. Have a fantastic weekend. I’ve got some awesome client sessions to blog which I will be sharing over the next few days, including the most precious 9 day old newborn baby girl today.

Fantabulous Fall Follies! Old Town Alexandria Children’s Photographer, Virginia Family Photographer

Third year in a row, I had the privilege of working with another repeat client who gets me and my style. Every year I always anticipate to see what fun & funky outfits my client has chosen for her fall portraits. I must say she has impeccable taste the girls were dressed to the nines Mini Boden style. Just a quick sneak peek - another client who is a black & white lover (another yeah) as it is so timeless and classic.

So modern, yet vintage - oxymoron? Of course .. sweetest 9 month old baby (repeat client, new family member was the focus) Northern Virginia Baby Photographer, Virginia Baby Photographer

Could you just not eat this lil fella up? I had the pleasure of photographing his big sister I believe early last year if memory serves right. I am always flattered each year as my repeat clients call to book sessions. I get to see new siblings, find out about expecting pregnancies, see a child or children grow and just catch up. L, thank you again for letting me be a small part of your day. I can not get over how sweet he looked in his page boy newspaper cap, the outfits you brought and to see he is a true spitting image of YOU! The bluest eyes and a very quiet baby who would just smile so big at dad’s silliness. He was however the primary focus of this particular session as I photographed big sis (or little) at the same age. We waited until the end and got just a very small handful. I will be sure to add one at a later date. In some of his expressions through the gallery the eyes, smiles melted my heart.

My goal is try to start better blogging, each client if at all possible. I love hearing from the parents of older children especially how they loved seeing themselves on the blog. As a rule of thumb, I sometimes post some of my personal favorites, sometimes not. You will never know, it’s the element of surprise when you get your gallery.
