2017 Favorites || Northern Virginia family photographer

What a year.

2017 was filled with so many beautiful families, babies, and bumps. I'm so blessed to do what I do. To capture all of these unique and wonderful stories. It overwhelms me at times. There are almost 200 photos in this collection, and I originally started with over 400 but decided that was ridiculous and that I needed to narrow down more. It's so hard! So many favorites from this past year!

I glanced back at my 2016 favorites and not only are there significantly more this year, what I'm really drawn to has shifted and changed. Now, I did photograph a lot more families this year topping out at a whopping 55 sessions! That's not including photographing my sister's family or my sister in law's pregnancy, delivery, and newborn, or other personal stuff. That's strictly my wonderful clients. This year you trusted me with:

13 Newborns

18 Family sessions

and 24 beautiful bumps

What I love about this collection is that all of my favorites show so much emotion and connection. We captured your giggles and laughs, snuggles, kisses, and some shy, tender toddler moments too. We captured real life and real joy for whatever season of life you were in. 

Winter is typically a slower time for photographers, but I've got quite a few sessions in the coming weeks already anyway. I'm so excited about what 2018 will bring and hope to see you all in front of my camera again soon. Have a happy and blessed New Year and to all my past clients, thank you, thank you, thank you.
