Any interest in fall mini sessions this weekend 10/19

I had left this weekend open in case it rained last weekend for my mini sessions, but since all went well, I have some time available. I can have a couple of mini sessions on Sat late afternoon in Manassas. If there is any interest please feel free to email me.

2nd birthday

I am a little late posting this but better late then never. I can’t believe my little angel turned 2. What a personality she has! This little girl has no fear, she will copy her older cousins and do all the crazy things they do. She is a shoe-oholic…yes I bribe her not with candy but shoes! I can’t go into the mall without her running to the shoe store, taking off her shoes on the way to try on the first pair of shoes she sees. She picks out her outfits in the morning, as I have no say anymore in what she wears! ahh As headstrong and fearless she is, she has a tender side to her. She is the first one to come running to you if she sees you fall to help you up, and will ask you if you are ok. If she sees us struggling trying to carry something, she runs up and will help you carry it.

I never knew how much you could love someone unconditionally until she came into my life. Even though she is only two, these two years feel like they have flown by. I wish the days of her being so small would go a little slower so I can enjoy every moment I spend with her.

Happy Birthday my angel


Lifestyle Session

Posed newborn sessions are usually done within 2 weeks of birth , but most moms don’t know this. What is easier about lifestyle sessions, is not being constricted with that limited amount of time. When I was contacted about doing a newborn session but the baby was already 3 months old, there was no issue.


A new addition to our family

I can’t believe its almost been a month since my son was born. It has been a sleepless few weeks. Having two kids under two is a handful. I have not had the chance to post any photos of him yet. Now that both kids are sleeping I figured I could at least post a photo and talk about his interesting birth.

My husband and I could not agree on a middle name and I figured after he was born it would come to us. For this birth I had to have a planned c section. It was planned for a Thursday at 2pm. That morning I checked the weather, and it was supposed to be beautiful and sunny. Get to the hospital and they tell me my c section is going to get pushed back a little. So when I'm finally ready for my surgery I heard a storm was coming out of no where. Storms come and go, so I was not worried about it or anything. I never really gave it a second thought. I get wheeled into the surgery room, they cut me open and the whole time I can hear the thunder outside. Then the room turns black. The power in the hospital goes out!! All the doctors and the nurses even freak out cause it was so unexpected. Luckily the generators kicked in quickly but now Im freaking out! I wanted them to hurry up and take the baby out and put me back together . I could not stay calm as the lights kept flickering through out the rest of the procedure. Talk about being a little scared. Luckily the rest of the procedure went without any issues. After our son was born we decided we wanted a middle name that related to thunder or storm as a reminder of how he came into this world. That is how his middle name Thor came to be.
