A beautiful ordinary morning at home • Maryland family photographer

Enjoy the highlights of my time with this family of 4. It was the second time I photographed them and they just wanted to be in their own element, especially for the girls.
From the mom: "Juliette, These pictures are absolutely stunning!  They so beautifully capture our family.  You really got both of the girls' personalities.  Thank you for freezing this precious moment in time for us!!  I am so grateful to you."

Also, can we stop and admire the perfect curls from the 3 ladies in the family? 
Yes we can. 

I have a documentary approach for photographing families so they can just slow down and enjoy the simple moment of being together. If you would like to see more of my recent family photography, head over to my Instagram account. I love to document the love (and tears) that go into family life, or managing a small business or a sweet reunion. Subscribe to my newsletter, I would love to have you there. xx

To new adventures • family photographer Takoma park

Returning clients are the best compliment I can get. I mean it, there are so many photographers out there that I feel very fortunate to meet again with "my" families. We started this session looking at a deer in the neighbor's front yard across the street. The little man was making dog sounds which was hilarious. We kept going with their daily routine of dressing him up, going to the nearby park. Nothing forced, just the ordinary. But in the eyes of a 13 months little boy, every thing is a great adventure. 

So here is to new adventures this year! Enjoy the moments, be in the present. 

Happy 2017 to all from my family to yours.

Paula, Daniel and Vinicius • Bethesda family photography

Paula sent me an email saying she wanted a lifestyle family photo shoot with me because Vini was about to turn 2. It was a year ago (yes I need to blog all the lovely sessions I have on my hard drive) and I couldn't be more happier… and pregnant! But she got me at "new house with a lovely yard".  

They turned out to be my dream clients and we eventually became friends. She asked if I could capture their new life in their new home, naturally, unposed. I did a little happy dance as it is something I really like to do: capturing people in a meaningful location doing what they love most (and it can be anything from chillaxing at home to riding bikes or having fun at the playground). So I documented the all gamut of emotions from pure joy to cries. 

Because life with a toddler can be an emotional roller coaster! But it's all worth it.
