Meet Ellie- Northern Virginia Baby Photographer

Meet Ellie, just about the smiliest 5 month old around! She was so wide eyed and happy the whole time, and more than once I caught her making funny faces at her reflection in my lens ;0) She’s such a happy little girl, and you can tell she is the center of her parents world. They completely adore her and I could see so much joy in the little moments of the three of them sitting together making Ellie smile. Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE photographing families?!? :0) Bethany and Matt, thanks for sharing your sweet girl with me for the afternoon! Can’t wait to see the three of you again soon!

I love moments like this when I’m close enough and they can see their reflection in the lens :0) She was so fascinated with my camera!
a little tummy time! this one makes me laugh every time :0) I asked Bethany where they spend the majority of their time, she said it was right here playing with Ellie on her bedroom floor :0) this is her happy dance :0) Even Ellie loves reading a good book: these next two are definitely my favorites from the day: but oh man, I really love these next ones of her little naked belly too: most definitely a favorite: apparently toes are her favorite snack ;0) then we bundled up and headed outside for a few minutes at the end of the session: and right here in this moment, Ellie started sticking out her tongue for the first time when she smiles! So funny that I was there to catch it! i’ll end with one more favorite of Ellie and her mama :0)

    For Jessica Smith –
    Nice work not only on the photos but on the order in which they’re presented. The first one is a REAL attention-getter; the second one tells me the next time you take this kid’s picture will be as a fashion model – those eyes are just fabulous. Also liked the shots of Ellie playing with the stuffed animal & (my favorite) all three sitting on the bed reading books.
    Congrats to everyone on the presentation.

    My favorites are the little family on the bed – with wedding photo on the wall – seems it was yesterday they were dancing at their wedding – now what a great family of 3! Lucky baby to be so cherished.

    These people are related to me, no wonder they are so smart and cute. I am so proud to be the grand uncle of such a personable child. looking into her face just tells me she is going to be a great success in life. May she live long and prosper.

    Sneaking little peeks at these pictures kept a smile on my face all day yesterday — even when I was still up working at 1:00 AM! Thanks for doing such a fantastic job!
