Fairfax Family’s Newborn Session

My dear friend and Alpha Phi sister from JMU welcomed her second son into her family this past month and her family of four is precious.  You may remember their family session from last spring which had beautiful bright pink colors from those spring blooms.  Looking back at just a year ago it’s crazy to see how much their first son Lincoln has changed!  He was so much smaller.  Now he’s grown into such a sweet big brother to baby Theo.  While I can’t speak from experience, I would imagine that many parents bringing home a second baby worry about how the first baby will feel and react.  Christina and Erik are over the moon to see how caring and helpful Lincoln is as a big brother!  You should have seen how sweetly excited he got when it was his turn to hold his baby brother.  He was perfectly calm and stepped up to the responsibility like a champ!  Read More »

Falls Church In-Home Newborn Session

LOWERY FAMILY NEWBORN
FALLS CHURCH

When I met up with Chris and Emily this summer in Baltimore, I knew we’d be a great fit almost immediately!  We met up in Canton to grab a coffee and just get to know each other before their big newborn session in the fall.  This is something I highly suggest for those looking for newborn photographers because you want the person coming into your home to photograph your newborn baby to not feel like a stranger.

Emily, Chris and I hit it off right away! They brought their adorable Goldendoodle Winston which obviously got me instantly talking about my Goldendoodle – Winnie!  Don’t tell Winnie but their dog Winston is definitely way better behaved, which is saying a lot because Winnie is pretty good!  The rest of our morning we spent just walking around and chatting as if we were old friends that had known each other for years.  We talked about our love for our Virginia universities, they went to Tech but connected with me through a mutual JMU friend!Read More »
