I had the opportunity to photograph these beautiful baby girls a few months ago when they were in town to visit family.  These little peanuts were born all the way over in Indonesia where their parents serve as missionaries, so instead of a newborn shoot, we got to do a 3 month shoot.  They were sweet, cuddly and wonderfully alert which made for a fun session!

For their albums, we actually ordered them a duplicate of their newborn album so that each little miss will have her own when she grows up.  And since grandma is beyond smitten, we also ordered her a mini-album (shown in images) of her own!

A few weeks ago I got the opportunity to photograph the adorable, wild and rambunctious Buitrago boys in their very own home!  They ran and jumped, wrestled and yelled and did all the things little boys are supposed to do.

These handsome boys happen to be the sons of my dear friend and amazing make-up artist, Ana B.  If you glance a my website and see mamas looking beautiful in their photos, it is all thanks to Ana who does the hair and make-up styling for all of my portrait sessions!

  • Ana Buitrago - Thank you so much for these beautiful photographs! The hardest part is figuring out which ones to print. I love them all!

    You’re amazing!

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful little girl since she was just a few days old.  It is an honor to document a family as they grow; it one of my favorite things about being a portrait photographer and is at the heart of why I do what I do.

At 2 Miss Emma loves dancing, playing with jewelry, making monkey noises and playing with her mommy and daddy.

A visit home is always so good for my soul.  My parents recently moved to a house in the country, about 25 minutes outside of Lexington where I grew up.  And though their house is new to our family, it already feels like home.  Waking up to beautiful sunrises over green pastures filled with horses, and tall green trees feels like home.  Kentucky, at her best.

Our days were filled with backyard playing, mule driving, cousin visiting, grill outs, back porch pool time, and many peaceful moments with family watching the sun rise and set over the horizon.

I’ve been trying to make more of an effort to get out my “big” camera to shoot our life as it happens, and I’m already loving the results.

On another note, tell me those aren’t the most adorable blue eyes on my little nephew?  I’m smitten.

These two girls have the sweetest bond as cousins.  I love how much they mean to each other already.  Elise asks me daily to see photos or to facetime with her cousin Peyton.alexandria va lifestyle photographerpin this

Mule-driving is another favorite activity on the land.  For you city-folk, this is a “mule”.  It is not a live animal in this case, but in fact a rugged, farm-use vehicle something like a golf cart.

These visits full of family, food and laughter always feel a little too short, and alas my heart is still so happy to have them.  Until next time, Kentucky!

Sweet Lilly came in all dressed in her dance attire for our tiny dancer shoot.  There were twirls, and plies, spins and jumps, and so much laughter.  She showed me what she was learning at dance, and in the process showed me another piece of her sweet spirit.  I love the joy I see in her eyes when she dances.

Here are a few of my favorites from our session!
