Moments of Motherhood | Northern Virginia Photographer

To kick off this Mother’s Day weekend, I thought I would look back on images of my favorite moments with some of the fabulous Moms I have had the pleasure of working with.  There is so much love in these photos and I hope you will see and feel that.  Moms, I know you don’t always want to get in front of the camera, I know you’re tired and don’t always feel picture perfect.  I’m here to tell you your children do not care!  It’s you they want to remember. The incredible human who sacrificed everything for them and was there sharing in these moments that really seem to fly by.  I myself can’t truly believe I have three of my own in double digits.

The best feeling in the world is when Mom receives photographs from me and she loves them.  It means we have made connections and frozen them in time.  I am so thrilled to be able to create these memories for you Mamas… It really is everything.  I am grateful to you for trusting me and I wish you the most appreciated and relaxed Mother’s Day.  You deserve it!!

Even when she really wasn’t feeling her best, she gave us the cutest moments…

Sometimes your session looks like this… The pouting and the crying, the mess and the imperfection…It’s all part of this parenthood gig isn’t it?

This is why I just adore at home newborn sessions.  Documenting all the things…Looking back, the chaos becomes art and the messy becomes pretty and we can’t believe how fast our babies have grown right before our eyes. They tell us this happens but we never really know until we are right there in the thick of it.
