Sunset Milestone Session | Northern Virginia Photographer

I had the pleasure of seeing this sweet family again to celebrate another milestone… Carter is ONE! We captured his milestone session at Manassas Battlefield with a gorgeous sunset session, lots of smiles, balloons, and a cake smash at the end!

Milestone sessions are some of my favorite sessions, especially if I had the honor of photographing their newborn session. I love seeing these sweet babies grow! It takes me back to my favorite time period with my own children!

I am currently booking newborn session due dates for October 2019, November 2019, and January 2020. Contact me early to check my availability surrounding your due date! I would love to document your sweet baby during their first year!

Here are a few of my favorites from his session…

Sweet ONE Watermelon 1st Birthday Milestone Session | Northern Virginia Photographer

I just adore this family! I have had the pleasure of photographing their oldest daughters newborn & 1st birthday milestone session, and their second daughter and her newborn & 1st birthday milestone session! Both girls are their parents are just about the sweetest people you will meet! I loved catching up with Mom during this session!

Mom brought in three of the cutest watermelon outfits and handmade her banner for this session! She is so artistic and talented and she was telling me about her new toy, a Cricut, and showing me all the amazing things she has made. It was very tempting not to want to get one!

Felicity was just as happy and energetic as could be during her session. Lots of smiles, laughing, and climbing on everything! She made me so nervous! It’s funny how relaxed I am with my own kids, but extra cautious with someone else’s kid!

Here are a few favorites from her 1st birthday milestone session in my Northern Virginia studio…

Milestone session in a suit, so cute! | Northern Virginia Photographer

It was such a pleasure to meet this adorable little boy and his family in my Northern Virginia studio for his 1st birthday milestone session! He had so much energy and was on the go his entire session! It took an entire team to get these photos… thanks Mom & Dad! I love the outfit his parents picked out for his photos… that little bow tie just made my hear melt!

Happy 1st Birthday Leo | Northern Virginia Milestone Photographer

Oh, what a joy it was to have Leo in my studio for his 1st birthday milestone session! He was so sweet and so adorable! He was so inquisitive and was attracted to all the buttons in the studio! He loved the balloon banner I made him for his session too!

Mom was sure he would love the cake since he loves to eat, but he wasn’t interested! We managed to get some more “cake” photos by letting Mom get her hands messy and feed him the cake! He really liked that!

My experience with a 1st birthday cake smash is it doesn’t necessarily matter if your child loves to eat or not, but if they are okay getting their hands messy. I mean, everyone loves cake, right? But if you don’t like getting your hands messy… then it makes it hard to eat the cake ;)

2 year old Milestone Session | Northern Virginia Photographer

Oh, it was such a joy and pleasure to meet the absolutely adorable Jack in my studio for his milestone session! He was welcomed into his forever home 6 months prior to his session through the amazing gift of adoption. He was just as happy and smiley as could be as long as he was in his Mama’s arms. It took him a little bit to warm up to the studio and lights, but with a few tricks, we soon saw his big personality shine! I really like how they choose to style his session. Mom picked one outfit, Dad picked one outfit, and then they incorporated his special panda and the USA into another outfit.
