Dad with tattoos, Newborn Lifestyle Photography

When I first met Michelle & Brandon at their maternity session, I could feel how incredibly excited they were to meet their son. Waiting nine months to meet the little one must take so much patience! Look how absolutely cute Silas is! From pregnancy to parenthood, Michelle, Brandon, & Silas:


cate & claire // alternative family portraits

Alternative Family Portrait Photography in Washington DC

Guys, this is not an April Fool’s joke. This family is so seriously awesome! I hung out with Cate’s family last week for a way-too-fun newborn lifestyle photography session. Newborn photo sessions with an older sibling are so exciting–all that toddler spunk makes the cutest possible photos! Cate is a great big sister so far, and… Read more »


how to: prep your home for a photo session

Creative Offbeat Maternity Family Photography DC

It’s no secret that I love photographing in the homes of my families. It’s so much fun to capture you in the place you’ve decorated and lived in and now call home. The backdrop might be a favorite piece of art, or a brand new kitchen, or the tail of the family pet. Any way… Read more »


Presley’s Home | Arlington VA Newborn Photography

Lifestyle Family Photography by Maggie Winters (16)

There’s something absolutely magical about newborn photography. Seeing a new little human who has only lived a few days–sleepy and tiny but with so much personality already–it’s sort of totally crazy. I photographed Katie & Graham’s maternity session a few months ago (which I just realized I haven’t blogged yet and will get that one… Read more »


Thomas’s Adventures at Home | Alexandria Family Photography

Alexandria Family Photography (9)

Thomas might just be one of the happiest babies I’ve met. He was excited for hugs and loved being thrown up in the air (because who doesn’t?!), and has the cutest little smile! Plus, I got to photograph the family dog too since our session was at Thomas’s house. I love when family pets wiggle… Read more »

Jackets, Leaves, & Cookies | Alexandria Family Photographer

Winter photo sessions are always an adventure–weather-wise, we never quite know! I met Hailey and her parents in Old Town, Alexandria last week; it was a bit chilly but we still had a great time exploring. Toddlers are always fun for photography, because they tend to have lots of opinions, which make the photos a… Read more »


eleanor’s first birthday | dc family photographer

Last year, right after August’s odd hurricane-like storm, I headed over to Capitol Hill for Eleanor’s newborn portraits. Last week, I met up with Amy, Eric, and Eleanor for her first birthday photo session! Craziness, if you ask me–kids grow so fast. This post is a great example of what to wear to a family… Read more »


Pickles & Reese | Arlington Baby Photographer

Arlington newborn lifestyle photography

I just finished these images and had to share them right away! Reese is Kristin and Jeff’s new baby girl, one week old and way too cute. She was such a cooperative little one–but then again, who wouldn’t be if they were surrounded by all those stuffed animals?! Pickles (the kitty) was very interested in… Read more »
