in the shop: pocket-sized mini albums

We’re now offering mini albums — possibly the cutest photo albums ever. They’re 3″ square, they come with a custom front & back cover, and they’re accordion folded. They are the perfect albums to showcase photos from a recent portrait session, from engagements to newborn and family sessions. Printed on high quality, recycled photo paper manufactured from 100% post consumer waste with a bright white matte finish, these little albums love the planet almost as much as your photos.

This little album was designed for the Blackburn family, from their recent newborn session.
mini photo albums custom designed for newborn portraits

I custom design each album myself, so you’re able to choose the photos you’d like, the text (if any), and then boom–they arrive at your door in a pretty little box.

These little babies are perfect for grandparent gifts, and just in time for the holidays. Sets of 3 identical minis are just $125 through the end of 2012. Tell me these aren’t the cutest little albums you’ve ever seen!

I’ll be adding them to the shop in the next couple days, but if you absolutely must have a set before then–and I wouldn’t blame you one bit!–shoot me a quick email and I’ll set up a custom order for you. Enjoy!

Iain + Will | Maternity and Twin Newborn Lifestyle Photography

Danielle and John are one of the first couples to take part in our new parents package! I got to photograph them twice, once for their maternity session and once when their beautiful newborn twins were born. It’s so much fun to photograph both sessions, because after meeting Mom and Dad at their maternity session I am way excited and curious to meet their new babies! The sessions are a really beautiful exploration of how life changes from pregnancy to parenthood with each new baby.

As soon as we started talking I knew that Danielle and John were going to be awesome–we shot their maternity session at a carnival! Their excitement about Iain and Will was beautiful to watch, and then when I got to meet the boys it was even more fun. Congratulations Danielle and John on two beautiful boys!

Arlington Newborn Lifestyle Photography

I met Ella and her parents last week at their home for her first photo session! She was wide awake and quite a hungry little thing, and we got some beautiful photos. I love sleeping newborn photos, but I really, really love the shots when they wake up and see you, and you can see those tiny wheels turning in their heads trying to figure out what’s going on. Newborn lifestyle sessions are one of my favorite types of photography because I get to capture a completely new time in parents’ lives, getting to know their new baby and becoming parents (for the first, second, third, or even twelfth time!). I bet in ten years Ella will get a huge kick out of these photos.

Thanks for having me, Ella, and I hope to see you again soon!

she’s already wearing monsters! | alexandria lifestyle photography

I met little Cassie a couple weeks ago when she was just a month old. She has to be one of the most expressive babies I’ve ever met–she already has such a fun personality, I can only imagine what she’ll be like in a few years! Oh yeah, and she wore a monster onesie. So she wins best-dressed baby in my book!

Check out her way-too-adorable faces. Congratulations Mom & Dad–she’s definitely a keeper.

Eleanor’s First Home | Capitol Hill Newborn Photographer

I met little Eleanor and her parents at their Capitol Hill home in a beautiful little neighborhood! Having spent my toddler years on Capitol Hill myself, with very few photos of the house, I was so glad her parents wanted to use their house as our photographic space. Eleanor is so beautiful and took some amazing pictures–I can’t wait to see her again at the next stage of baby-hood!
