Playing Dress-up | Ashburn, VA Child Photographer

Who doesn't love to play dress-up? With all the available outfits right here in our studio, kids and moms alike get very excited. Aria and Caleb were no different. These two are the most adorable brother and sister. They have so much love for each other that it melted my heart just watching them. Little diva or superhero? It doesn't matter. It's all about having fun!

Aashvi's Sitting Up Session | Northern Virginia Baby Photographer

One of our baby plan members was back in the studio for her sitting up milestone session. It is always so amazing to watch these tiny newborns, that you feel you just photographed yesterday, grow into more and more independend little personalities. Aashvi came with her whole family and was happy and excited to see how proud everybody is of her. It certainly put an extra spark into her beautiful big eyes.

Father's Day Limited edition sessions | Loudoun County Children's Photographer

After we've photographed our beautiful Mommy & Me Sessions it is now time to start thinking about Father's Day. What better way to honor dad than with meaningful portraits? I know what you're thinking... "How will I ever convince him to do a photo session with the kids?" No worries, I know that some dads are not very excited to step in front of the camera. That's why we came up with two options:

For the first option dad will join the kids in the studio. It's all about the relationship between them and of course the fun they have together.

For the second option we'll send you a list of fun questions about dad that you are going to ask your kids. We'll then incorporate the answers into the products we're offering only for this session. Just imagine the fun Dad will have when he receives his Father's Day gift!

 

Don't miss out on these wonderful memories. Dad only needs so many ties and socks. ;) Contact us today at info@artcafephotography.com to book your session! A $50 deposit is required reserve your spot.

Welcome to the world, Aiden! What a sweet little man with his red hair! We got plenty of sleepy images, but Aiden was curiously looking around when his proud mom and dad were holding him. :)

Mommy & Me Special Edition Mini Sessions

Here they are! The details about our first ever Mommy & Me Sessions! Why did we choose this theme for a limited edition mini session? Because it is very close to our hearts that you, mom, get in the pictures with your kids!

 

   "I’m everywhere in their young lives, and yet I have very few pictures of me with them. Someday I won’t be here — and I don’t know if that someday is tomorrow or thirty or forty or fifty years from now — but I want them to have pictures of me. I want them to see the way I looked at them, see how much I loved them. I am not perfect to look at and I am not perfect to love, but I am perfectly their mother." - Allison Slater Tate

 

Allison wrote a wonderful blog post about this topic.

We get so caught up in our daily lives that we don't think about creating memories for our children. And if it pops into our head every now and then we will certainly find an excuse to rather be behind the camera instead of IN the pictures with the ones we love the most. Yes, I'm the first one to tell you that I'm guilty of exactly that. I truly regret not existing in photographs since there is no proof that I existed in my children's lives.

So, no excuses this time! Here are the details for our Mommy & Me Sessions:

 

Spaces are very limited. Make sure to contact us today at info@artcafephotography.com or through our website to book your session. A $50 deposit is required to reserve your spot.

2017 ArtCafe Photography Special Edition Mini Sessions

You asked and we listened. If you are a "regular" at our studio you know that we only offer special edition sessions for the holidays. We've been asked many times if we would consider offering more mini sessions throughout the year. You've finally worn us down! ;) Just kidding. We agree that it is a great way to get some updated cute images more often without coming in for a full session. It is also wonderful for families who've never been to our studio and want to try us out. Here they are, our 2017 Special Edition Mini Sessions:

We'll offer special packages and products for these sessions. They'll be announced weeks ahead of time and you'll be able to sign up. Keep in mind that there will only be a limited amount of spots for each of the sessions, so don't wait too long to contact us!

Ellis's 1st Birthday Cake Smash | Northern VA Baby Photographer

Sweet little Miss Ellie was back in the studio for her final Baby Boutique session, her 1st birthday cake smash. This is the most fun of the three sessions during baby's first year because we make a huge mess! Ellie enjoyed her cake and was very excited about the bath as well. We loved being able to capture how much she's changed over the course of a year and we'll miss seeing her every few months.

The backdrop for this session was designed and hand painted by our very talented Emily.
