Meet Mattea

Baby Mattea was just 2 weeks old when I met her last Sunday for her debut photo shoot (see the maternity photo shoot I did with her family in November...)

We had fun posing her with lots of accessories, and discovered that she loves bean bag chairs. She fell right asleep when we snuggled her in the bean bag. Congrats, Deb and Jay!











 

The L. Family

Last weekend, I met the L. family at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Virginia for a photo shoot. Deb's daughter Lucy is just two days older than my daughter Stella, and I've had the lucky opportunity to photograph Deb and her family for several years now. This time, we captured some touching family shots before the next baby arrives in December! I love the L. family and I can't wait to meet the newest member!









Abby!

Baby Abby was born to my good friends Maggie and Chris on January 27. Abby was a dream model-at just two weeks old, she tolerated wardrobe changes, hats and hair bows, and hanging out in wicker baskets. I am in love with this baby.

I especially love Abby's hair--it's brown hair with natural blonde highlights/frosted tips. Maggie said it's like her hair started out blonde and then suddenly switched to brown. Absolutely amazing--people pay big bucks for highlights like this!













The Ferrara Family

I spent Saturday morning with the Ferraras! Baby Isaac is five months old and so cute, with a big bald head and big 'ole eyes. Isabella is two and full of sass and personality. I've photographed the Ferraras several times before. The kids just keep getting cuter and cuter.

















 

Mad Dog Madeleine

I met "Mad Dog" Madeleine on Sunday. Madeleine was a full two weeks late, can you even imagine? Her parents, Sharkie and Johann, are good friends--I've known Sharkie forever, since my grad school days at Georgetown.

Madeleine was the perfect model--she stayed awake the entire time with barely a peep. What a great sport.

As a side note, I did learn that day that when there is traffic leading onto the beltway from 95 in Maryland, it does NOT save any time to go the opposite direction, on the New Carrollton side. My "shortcut" to avoid sitting in the traffic was about 20 extra miles. You think I would know that after living in DC for 9 years.

Congrats again to Sharkie and Johann!
