I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, but one of the greatest privileges of doing this work is spending time with and photographing some of the same subjects over and over again, bearing witness as two people get married and returning when they become parents. It’s just the best. Much like Ken and Steff’s wedding in November of 2008, our session was heavily influenced by their passion for bird-watching, (hence the tiny pink binoculars for Ayla! So cute!)

Baby Ayla was the star, of course, and we had to throw in a little Virginia Tech fan love for good measure. Then we went to a coastal bird conservation center affiliated with the Audubon Society, which is where Ken and Steff were first living when they fell in love and began planning their lives together. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, as was the light along the water. Thanks for hosting me, guys! :) Enjoy!

It’s been a while since I’ve photographed Talon and his parents, and he’s become such a big boy since last April… and a big brother! He’s so sweet with his baby sister, although he wasn’t 100%thrilled when I posed her in HIS wagon. :) We lulled Parker to sleep with a hairdryer, a tip I picked up on the Pictage forums, to get the sleepy angel baby shots, and I’m so glad we went for it. Enjoy!

I just managed to squeeze in a maternity session with Kelisha and Bernard on their baby girl’s due date. I got really lucky because Kelisha started having contractions shortly after I left. Baby Riley is here! I also have to confess that I was completely charmed by big brother Blake. He was so sweet and smart, pointing out and (accurately!) naming cars by brand as we walked to a nearby park on one of the first “nice” weather days (a balmy 39 degrees Fahrenheit) we’ve had in a while. I can’t wait to take photos of their newborn daughter in the next week or so, but even more than that, I feel really honored and privileged to be with them documenting their last day as a family of three. Congrats!
