Mary Katherine & Kristen | Bethesda, MD Baby and Family Photographer

Oh I just love this family!! They were one of my very very first “clients”, and I use that term lightly because at the time of their first session I was still working on building my portfolio and learning lots and lots with each click of the camera:)That was about a year and a half ago, and now they have another sweet baby girl so it was time to update their family pictures. Big sister, Mary Katherine is one of my favorite toddlers around, always smiling and adorable! Her laughter is contagious, she is just the best! This was the first time I met little sister, Kristen and she was just so sweet! And she had the best chubby rolls! We started our session in studio and then moved outside for the family shots. I love these so much and am so excited to share (I apologize in advance for the over-share! I just couldn’t narrow my choices down!)

Happy 1st Birthday Hunter! | Virginia Birthday Photographer

I first met Hunter and his sweet family last June when he was 4 months old. I was so lucky to be able to see him three times over his first year and capture so many memories for his momma and daddy:)I love being able to see my Baby Planner babies grow from teeny little babies into toddlers, bursting with personality! Can you believe how much he changed over that first year?? Adorable, right??

Well, we had Hunter’s 1st birthday session this past February and I was so excited because it had been a long, long time since I’d had a little boy cake smash and I was dying to make a blue cake. Don’t get me wrong, I love pink and frilly things, but was ready for a little boy to smash up some cake:)And Hunter did not disappoint! He gave me one of my favorite cake smash images of all time:

Of course, we also took some non-cake images and I love them just as much! Hunter was a very busy little guy at our session, constantly on the move. But looking cute the whole time! Happy Birthday Hunter:)

Happy 1st Birthday Natalie! {Rockville, Maryland Baby Photographer|

Natalie’s newborn session was my first session of 2011 and I can’t believe we are already celebrating her 1st birthday! This year went by way too fast! I was so excited to try out a new prop and knew Natalie would be a perfect model for it:)Isn’t she just the cutest?? I definitely had to work for her sweet little smiles but it was so worth it! Of course Big Brother Nicholas was a great helper and gave me some adorable shots too. Can’t wait for our next session Jen:)
