Brothers & Sisters | Alexandria Virginia Photographer
December 2nd, 2014

There is so much to love about capturing siblings together – the closeness, the laughter, the shared looks and the inevitable hijinks. The goal is to figure out the sibling dynamic from behind the camera and to capture it at its best. ┬áSince embarking on my own personal project to capture my two girls together, I have come to cherish the opportunity to get siblings in front of my camera.

Below – two brother sister pairs that I thoroughly enjoyed capturing at recent mini-sessions. The first I have been photographing since before little brother was born. I have grown to love them completely and look forward to our time together every year. The second are an adorable pair being photographed by me for the first time. They did awesome (on a very cold day).

the secret | arlington virginia family photographer
October 7th, 2014

Sometimes I see a family with children older than my own, and I want to beg them for the secret to their success.

How did you raise such outstanding children who love each other and love you and love the world? What’s your secret?

This family is one of those families. I want their secret.
