I love Maternity + Newborn sessions. It is really exciting being with a family right before and after they have a baby. It’s such a special time and a part of my gets to relive my own excitement through them.
Ashlee + Jeff were referred to me by some past clients. I love getting referrals and take them as such a compliment! I photographed Ashlee when she was pregnant and then had the great pleasure of photographing them again when their newbie, Walker, was born. Here are some Morehouse fun facts: Ashlee and Jeff are both from Texas. Texans take Texas seriously! And to ensure that baby Walker (whom is named after a county in Texas) was a true Texan he needed to be born over Texas soil. So Ashlee & Jeff’s families made sure they brought some with them when they attended the birth, slid some soil under Ashlee’s delivery bed and VOILA! Walker was born over Texas soil. I love it. This kid will know his roots for sure! Well without further ado, I present one of my favorite newborn sessions to date.
I met the Harris family at their gorgeous row house in Old Town. They had just moved in which is already hard work but with 6 month old triplets (TRIPLETS!) I would think that it would be nearly impossible. Anna & Nick were so fun and relaxed. I would guess that you have to roll with the punches with 3 babies at home and they seemed to do it effortlessly. I loved every moment of this session. What’s not to love? Gorgeous Parents, beautiful babies and a fantastic old house with tons of character in a great part of town. Meet the lovely Harris family.
Now that the fog (or maybe smoke from my camera) has cleared from the Holiday photography season I can finally get back to blogging. It has been a while to say the least. I won’t tell you exactly how long ago my session with the Fairman family was but as you can see, we still had changing leaves in the trees. Forever ago. I know. Anywho, the Fairmans. An awesome family! Christina, Hank and little Ellie were so fun to shoot. It had been raining the entire weekend of our session. We managed to get about an hour break in the rain. We spent the first 45 minutes or so dry and the last 20 in a light drizzle. Ellie was in heaven splashing and jumping in the puddles. A perfect session.
I have had the pleasure working with a DC stylist named Manvi Drona (http://www.mochatini.org/) for a little over a year now. Last year I shot an HGTV New Year’s tablescape for her along with a Photo Booth how-to. She just recently created a Halloween tablescape and DIY children’s costumes for the DIY Network. I knew the perfect kids to model the costumes! Please check out the DIY Network article and follow Manvi on Facebook + Twitter!
