Nancy, Ilan & Baby L | Washington DC maternity photography | Mt. Pleasant

Once upon a time, two lovely people met in Mt. Pleasant, fell in love, got married and had a baby. They made goofy faces at the baby, because goofy faces are this couple’s particular forte. Sometimes the baby cried, but mostly she was very happy. And then they hired a brilliant photographer to take documentary family photos. The end.

Ok, not the end. Not the beginning. Just somewhere in the very-good middle.washington-dc-documentary-newborn-photography-25

Baby L has a tiny tongue and little tiny toes.

And a tiny vajay – sorry future teenage Baby L!

Nancy and Ilan’s house has amazing light. Everyone should get to live in a house with light like this. I fully anticipate they will do all future baby cuddling mushed into this corner of their kitchen.

Jade, Paul & Baby A | Newborn photographer | Arlington, VA

Baby A is enormous, guys. This is a newborn shoot, I promise. Jade was still working on him last time I saw them, but he’s arrived and he’s pretty great. I’m pretty well convinced that a “newborn” shoot should actually take place a month or more in – Baby A can smile and giggle and squirm and he’s cute as hell.

Megan, Pritpal & family | newborn documentary family photography | Bethesda, MD

I’ve had the pleasure of documenting several of Megan and Pritpal and family’s major life milestones. Their engagement, then their wedding, then moving into a beautiful new house, and last week I met a tiny new person they created out of thin air. Baby S was incredibly good for the whole shoot – not even falling asleep, as nine-day-old tiny people tend to do.

Jack makes an excellent big brother.

They have an amazing house. It was pretty awesome to shoot in when it was empty and now that they’ve filled it with some really sweet decor, it’s irresistible for compositions and things.
