Reunited with the Fontaine Family

Reunited with the Fontaine Family

It’s been two years but I have finally reunited with the Fontaine family! And oh my, how things have changed:

Will is all grown up, I finally met the family cat, and Liz and Scott have found their dream house in Alexandria. It was such a pleasure getting a tour of their new home and playing with Will. He was proud to show off his cat (Olive), his legos, and his mad soccer skills!

I cannot believe that Scott is still able to do this with Will!

I have had the pleasure of being a part of the Fontaine’s family’s special moments from the very beginning! From Will’s homecoming to spending the holidays  with them and their winter session in DC. Not to mention their decision to add on another family member! Just looking back at these sessions, it’s crazy how much everyone and everything has changed!

Liz, Scott, Will, and Olive: Thank you so much for having me photograph your lovely family again. It was so wonderful catching up and I look forward to next year! And congratulations on finding your dream home! It’s amazing, and so are you!

A Fall Family Session with the Conways

A Fall Family Session with the Conways

A Fall Family Session with the Conways:

Sarah, Jarrett, and I met at a mutual friend’s dog’s birthday party (yes, a dog’s birthday party) and it was friendship at first lick! No, not Sarah or Jarrett (lol)! Her dog gave me a kiss and the family hasn’t been able to get rid of me since!

Since then, the Conway family has grown. Tristan, their first born, came just in time for us to meet before I made my big move to south Florida. He was and is the bringer of pure joy, always full of smiles and giggles.

Two years later, he’s still those things but so much more! He’s a ball of energy, fast-moving, and so outgoing. And he’s expecting a little brother!

I am so thrilled for this beautiful family and cannot wait to meet the new bundle of joy. If he’s anything like his parents or big brother, he’s going to be perfect!

In celebration of the exciting news, Sarah, Jarrett, and Tristan asked me to photograph their growing family. I couldn’t have been more honored or thrilled to be able to do it for them during my trip to Virginia!

Take a look at a few of my favorites from our session:

Spending the Morning with the Atkins

Spending the Morning with the Atkins

I had a blast spending the morning with the Atkins at their home in Bristow, documenting their time together as they took a family walk, practiced ball, and got ready for big brother’s exciting baseball game!

It’s been over two years since I’ve seen this family (since my big move to Florida). And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss them a ton! I’ve watched this family throughout the years, having met them for the first time on the day of my own engagement to my now-husband. Since then, I’ve seen them change and grow. I photographed their wedding, a fall family session pre-baby Atkins, baby Cooper as a newborn, and now this. Being a part of their lives and seeing where life takes them … there are no words! I am so grateful to have met them and continue to be a part of their journey through life!

Adventures of the Growing Family: The Witts

Adventures of the Growing Family: The Witts

What started out as a family of six, has now grown into a family of eleven! Welcome to the Adventures of the Growing Family: The Witts.

The joys of having a larger home and tons of acres of land is that it allows for family growth. With three children and a cat still living at home, Charlie and May have been slowly adding to the family. Charlotte last year, a cat here, a dog there … until they ended up with four cats, two dogs, three children, and the two of them under one roof! Who knows what’s to come in the following year when I see them next?! Hopefully a few more additions 😉
