Washington DC Lifestyle Newborn Portraits — Jesse, Gwen, & Ava

Today is an exciting day because I get to share a few of my favorites from this DC lifestyle newborn portrait session.

One of the greatest gifts of my job is the fact that I get to meet so many incredible people.  The clients that I get connected with, end up feeling like old friends by the end of their wedding day.  So when I’m invited back into new seasons, I can’t help but feel delighted!

You already know how much I adore Gwen & Jesse from their Inn at Perry Cabin wedding in 2020.  They’re easy to gush over ;)  As you can imagine, I was equally as honored and thrilled when the two reached out about portraits of their latest addition.  Sweet little Ava entered their world and has made it even more precious.

She is the cutest and as much as I loved watching them say, “I do!” getting to witness G&J love on their girl was just as special.  They’re the best teammates, and Ava is so lucky to have them!

We all know I could write a novel about these two (since I already did), but I’ll spare you here.  Instead, just look for the same look they shared on their wedding day, somehow amplified.  Because loving the little tiny human you created together somehow makes it even sweeter!

… and those little tiny toes.  They get me every time! <3

Without further ado, enjoy a peek of sweet Ava’s DC lifestyle newborn portraits.

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.
