Leslie + Ellie | Winchester, Virginia Family Photographer

I have photographed these two numerous times but this session outdid them all and is by far my favorite. We went to the beautiful Marker Miller Orchard while the apple blossoms were still in bloom. The sun graced us with a beautiful departure and we basked in the golden light. It has truly been a blessing documenting Leslie and Ellie for the past 4 years. I look forward to continuing to watch Ellie grow. Love you both!

Avett: NICU Session | DC Baby Photographer

“Hey… I will update when I know more but Baby and I are headed to Fairfax, there are lung issues… fluid in his lungs, may be having him today and he will need to be in the NICU”

That was the email I received from Lindsley the morning of March 6, 2014. She had been scheduled for a c-section in April and had already scheduled her Fresh 48 for the day after Avett’s birth. I assured her that I would find a way to document Avett no matter what. Going to Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC when Avett was about 6 weeks old was an amazing experience. I was so blessed to spend a couple hours with these two.

Taken from the “Praying for Baby Avett” Facebook page:

Avett was born via emergency c-section at Fairfax INNOVA hospital in Fairfax, VA. We found out that morning, through a chance ultrasound, that Avett was going to be born with a significant amount of fluid in and around his lungs. Once he was born, he was put on a breathing tube immediately. The NICU team at Fairfax told us when Avett was about 3 hours old that he was on the highest amount of support they could give him…meaning that if anything started to go downhill for our son, they were already exhausting all of their options with him. We were told it would be a good idea to consider sending him to DC Children’s Hospital..via helicopter. The helicopter team picked up our baby when he was a mere 5 1/2 hours old. He was placed on an ECMO machine, which is heart and lung bypass. The updates below are about Avett’s progress, our prayer requests, and how God is healing our baby boy. We thank everyone who stands with us in praying for Avett.

I am happy to report that Avett is currently 6 months old, still bright eyed, and doing amazingly well! He is one of the most darling babies I have ever seen. I smile from ear to ear whenever Linds posts a photo of him!

Hope and Travis: Expecting | Front Royal, Virginia Maternity Photographer

Hope and I have been friends for over a decade. We are the friends that harbor secrets that our children will NEVER know about;)So, when Hope told me she was pregnant I insisted that she and Travis allow me to photograph them as a way to announce it to the world. She makes such a beautiful expecting mother. I cannot wait to meet their little girl next month! Congratulations Travis and Hope! You will be amazing parents!

Pryce 1 Year Lifestyle Session + Cake Smash: Front Royal, Virginia Lifestyle Photographer

I have been documenting Pryce’s life for the past year. It has been so fulfilling watching him grow while providing his family with memories that they can cherish forever. I wanted to give a glimpse of his everyday life to wrap up this year. Following him during a normal afternoon will give any parent nostalgia of the toddler days. We followed the lifestyle session with a proper cake smash soon after. If you look through all of these photos, bless you. I couldn’t narrow it down. He is too scrumptious and gave me way too many good shots!
