I adore being a McLean Newborn Photographer for sessions like these. Alison’s family welcomed baby sister Carson, and they were simply a joy to photograph. It was a winter day when I traveled to this sweet family’s McLean home for their newborn session. Newborn sessions tend to be so serene. This newborn session was not […]

This Maryland newborn session was photographed on a crisp fall day. We had documented this beautiful family’s maternity session in the summer in DC.

As a DC fine art photographer, I have desired to enrich the service I provide the families I photograph. I couldn’t quite place my finger on it, but it seemed there should be something more than simply sending an online gallery and calling it a day.
