Sweet little Gwen.  She was born just 5 days after I photographed her mama!  Her parents brought her into the Old Town studio a week or so later for her newborn session, and it was perfectly dreamy.  I can’t imagine a more lovely afternoon in the studio…filled with the golden light and photographing a sleepy babe.

The lovely Miss W called me two weeks before her due date for a maternity shoot!  We were able to squeeze her in for a quick studio session just five days before her sweet baby girl was born!  Thank you, Whitney for allowing me to capture this sweet season of your life!

I have had the joy of documenting the McKennys as a family of 4 for the past few years and now as a family of 5!  Getting to photograph families as they grow and change is one of my greatest joys.  Thank you, McKenny family, for allowing me to continue to tell your story in photographs!

We had the lovliest maternity session last fall in Old Town Alexandria, just around the corner from the studio.  Hair and make-up by the ever-talented Make-up by Ana B.

This is the winter of the babies!  I have had so much fun meeting, snuggling, and photographing these sweet new babes.

As any mama will tell you, there is nothing like those first few weeks of life.  Newborns change so quickly and it is the sweetest gift to get to capture the freshness of new life.

I got to photograph sweet Audriana in December with her darling parents and grandparents!  Isn’t she just a doll?

This wedding…this sweet Wednesday evening, outdoor camp wedding…

…it was just perfect for Sarah.

She’s a girl who at the age of 4 declared that she “was born for a life of speed and adventure”…she lives life big.  She loves big, she runs fast and…she gets married at a beautiful little lakeside camp in rural Florida.

Every last detail of this wedding was family-oriented.  The location was a camp where Seth and his family came in his younger years.  The decorations were lovingly put together by a small army of both the bride and groom’s families.  Even Sarah’s dress had a lace detail that came from her mother’s wedding.

All floral decor was done by the bride’s incredibly talented and dedicated sister-in-law, Melissa! Florida Wedding Photographerpin thisFlorida Wedding Photographerpin thisFlorida Wedding Photographerpin this

Sarah’s hair was done by her soon-to-be sister-in-law Rachel and her hair was done by another sister-in-law and, Jessica (a benefit of coming from a big family is having helpful siblings and in-laws)!

since the wedding site was a bit far from the reception site, they had hay-ride tractors ready to take guests to and from the ceremony!
