As a fine art maternity, newborn, and family photographer here in our nation's capital, DC, I carry enormous pride in preserving your family's legacy. Just as your memories will serve as styled art in your home, consider this journal a haven to display remembrances of our time together.
I want my family documented...
Traveling with toddlers (plural) is no joke. Zach and I have always had a strong case of wanderlust, so we have continued to travel with kids (sans the pandemic). I have previously written posts on traveling with a baby and traveling with a toddler (singular), but traveling with multiple toddlers was a totally different ballgame. […]
I remember looking up first birthday gift ideas when Perry and Rosie turned one. They are fun to shop for since the first birthday is such a momentous occasion to celebrate! Not only is your child turning one year old, but you are making it through the first year of parenthood (a feat in itself!). […]
I adore being a film photographer here in the Northern VA and DC area, so I documented our summer on film. Film is an integral part of my client experience, but I also photograph my own family on film. I actually fell in love with film when COVID first hit. I wrote a whole post […]
Traveling with a toddler is an adventure. Although we are prepared for our fair share of meltdowns, we also know that there is so much sweetness to be documented. I wrote an entire post on traveling with a baby when we traveled to Italy and Ireland with Perry when he was only 8 months old. […]
Being a Northern VA and DC family photographer, I know many mothers have their favorite mom hack. It may last through all of the early years or gradually change as our needs change. In the past, I have shared a few easy tips on how to get your child to smile for photos and how […]
Being a family photographer is the BEST job. After all, I get to play with little ones while documenting their relationship with their parents! Over the years, I have had many parents express worry about their children during sessions. They are worried their kids will be grumpy, they won’t listen, etc. As a mother to […]
I have the fondest memories of my babymoon in Ireland. Zach and I packed our bags when I was 20 weeks pregnant with Perry and traveled across Ireland, Scotland, and England over the course of two weeks. We immediately fell in love with everything about Ireland – the people, the lush green landscapes, the castles, […]
Supporting DC small businesses has always been important to me, but even more so since the pandemic commenced. Small businesses have been hit particularly hard since COVID, forcing many to close their doors. Putting money in the hands of people who live in our community is one of many reasons to help local businesses. I […]
All mothers know there is a certain point where you see the transition from baby to toddler. My darling Rosalie, or “Rosie,” has finally made the transition, and my heart just melted. Rosie’s first twelve months flew by because she was only born two months before COVID began. This time at home has blurred together. […]
As a newborn photographer here in the DMV, I help all my clients prepare for their session so they can approach and leave their session feeling comfortable and confident. The vast majority of the work associated with photo sessions is done before the session, not the session itself. As part of the Marie Elizabeth Photography […]
