I told Mike we were ready for him to join the photos and apologized for taking him away from the game he was streaming. His response: “These photos with my wife are way more important!” <3 Mike and Brittany’s maternity session was mostly taken in studio with some lovely shots from a courtyard garden nearby. […]

ne, Massachusetts maternity session was idyllic. It was golden hour in July. We met on a hill that overlooks the city of Boston; we walked up a beautiful brick path that is lined by hydrangea bushes and trees that filter the loviest, soft, golden light.

Is it possible to leave a newborn session without baby fever? (The answer: No!)

This lifestyle newborn session took place at their home in Northern Virginia when baby girl was seven whole days new! Her mom and dad were calm, joyful, and their home – peaceful. One of the greatest gifts of my job is being with families during their most joyful moments such as these; when they are bursting with the love and joy of new life! This sweet baby is blessed to have two parents that love her so! May God bless this sweet family always! This sweet baby is so blessed to have two parents that love her so! May God bless this sweet family always!

After much research and taking Covid restrictions into consideration, I realize that realistically, I am only able to offer ONE day of Cherry Blossom Mini’s. Given the popularity of these sessions and the circumstances of our time, I have decided to offer an additional option of private bloom sessions in hopes of capturing both the plethora of pink magnolias that bloom prior to the cherry blossoms, as well as the cherry blossom themselves!

Talk about a glowing mama! I often hear women describe their final weeks as uncomfortable, feeling large, tired, and just bleh. While I know that to be true (that’s how I felt!), I also know that with a little pampering, you can also feel more like the glowing, beautiful, expecting YOU! Amanda can attest to […]

I recently received the following message via IG messenger: “Mom to mom, wondering how you manage all of your family photos/videos and moments? Digital backup drive? Do you use “old school” prints and store in albums? Right now I feel like I have so many and my kids are only 2 under 2!” This is […]
