Someone’s having a baby! | Washington D.C. Family Photographer

It was a beautiful day for some baby announcement family portraits over at the McKee-Beshers sunflower fields. It was scorching hot outside, but we powered through the heat and got some adorable images anyway! Enjoy some of my favorites from the day!

The 2013 Great Lengths Hair Challenge | Washington D.C. Portrait Photographer

This is the first of a series of shots taken for the 2013 Great Hair Lengths Challenge with hair stylist and colorist, Cynthia Santana, who is entering the contest for the first time this year. Thanks to a great team and excellent models, Cynthia’s photographs for the fuller category made it to the finalists! I won’t be posting those images until the contest is over, but you can see them here and vote for her while you’re there too! You can vote once a day, so don’t stop after one vote! Even though the photos below didn’t make it to the finalists, they were some of our favorites! A special thank you to Jordan for being an incredibly patient model :)

Holiday Family Portraits | Washington D.C. Family Photographer

This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family for their Christmas family portraits! We got extremely lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy a colorful sunset at the end right before the rain came in. These photos are going to make for some super cute Christmas cards!

Family Photos at Fairchild Gardens | Washington D.C. Family Photographer

I met this beautiful family while photographing flowers and waterlilies at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens. Since I can’t help but take photographs when I see cute babies, we ended up having a mini photoshoot. Take a look at how sweet they are!
