Cailin, Ben & Baby A | Falls Church newborn photography

Cailin and Ben have a new tiny baby that they made from scratch! Baby A is totally skeptical and I’m predicting he will also be the next big rapper. Check it:

Nancy, Ilan, Baby L and Baby #2 on the way! | Washington DC maternity photographer

I’ve been photographing Nancy and Ilan for years now – from wedding to baby bump to squiggly infant. Well, folks, they did it again this year and they’ve got another rocking mix of genes on the way. Baby L is no itty bitty squishy thing anymore, as happens with babies after ten months. She’s on the move and living large and about to get a big shock of baby sibling in a couple months! Nancy, Ilan, and the fam:

One of my favorite images from the session – totally unstaged and just real life, hanging-out, kinda-weird.

Kate, Joey and Baby J | documentary family photography | Arlington, VA

Not gonna lie, I know almost nothing about babies. I come in for an hour, encourage cuddling and smiles, then I hit the road and process the images. But it’s really interesting how two-week-old newborns have such different personalities. They can’t tell you much, but their eyes are doing lots of things. And their mouths. And, hey, who are we kidding, their butts.

Kate and Joey invited me into their home to document a piece of their first days with Baby J.

This is one of my favorite family photos ever. Their poor dog is feeling neglected with the new addition. And: owls!
