Why Printed Artwork Is So Important | Northern VA Newborn and Maternity Photographer

Anyone who has ever worked with me knows the value that I place on printed artwork. I want every client who works with me to walk away with something tangible from their session - something they can hold and touch and feel. Something they can hold in their hands.

I know sometimes when the images and experience are fresh and brand new, it’s hard to understand why this is. Photography is a unique art form in that it often can’t be fully appreciated until years after the image is captured and the moment has passed.

Because years down the line is when our memories fade, our children have grown, our faces have more wrinkles. It’s not until years from now that you’ll be able to look back on an album or framed print and think

“wow, my baby was so small”
”I can’t believe how young mom and dad were when I was born”
”I barely remember that happening, but I’m so glad I can look back on it now”

It takes the distance of those years to realize how much things change and how quickly it goes by. It’s only by having something you can hold that those reminders come to us. When we look up on the wall and see the portrait that’s been hanging for years, or when we pull out the album that’s been on the shelf for what feels like a lifetime. Because when we flip through those images and pages, we get to look back into the past and what life was like for us. And our children get to see what life was like for us and them too.

Make These Moments Last a Lifetime | Northern VA Maternity and Newborn Photographer

I have never found inspiration in simply taking a pretty picture. Instead, my true source of inspiration is knowing that these are the images you will look on again for years to come. When your baby graduates high school. At their wedding. When they have children of their own. When we are all old and gray and our faces are full of wrinkles, I know that you will have these images to help you tell stories from when you were young. My goal is never to create something for your friends and family on social media. It’s to create something for you. To help you remember a collection of moments over the years, that you can look back on over and over again.

Leesburg VA Outdoor Session | Fun with Family

Family sessions are offered just twice a year, and each season they remind me of how much time as gone by. Getting to see the children I photographed as newborns grow into toddlers and big kids is such an experience. It’s a reminder not only of how much they have grown, but how my own family has grown too. Seeing them grow into their personalities and features, having interests and preferences unique to them. Each child, relationship, and family has it’s own quirks and memories. Getting to meet with clients year over year is the highest compliment and a relationship a treasure with each of my families.

Here are some of my favorite images from this session - enjoy!

Outdoor Fall Family Session | Northern VA Photographer

The fall season is always the most busy, and the most fun! KJP family sessions are offered exclusively to previous KJP clients each year. With limited availability I like to save these special sessions for families I’ve worked with before - it’s amazing to see your babies grow!

I’ve worked with this amazing family several times over the last year, and watching their baby girl grow into a curious toddler is so exciting. I can’t wait for them to see their gorgeous heirloom album when it arrives, it’s going to be beautiful. (make sure to follow me on instagram to see sneak peeks of galleries and artwork)

Here are some of my favorite images from our most recent session (how gorgeous is mama?!) - enjoy!

Autumn Family Session | Northern VA Photographer

I can't say enough how much of a joy it is to be able to capture your families each year. I've watched these girls grow from babies and known mama through two pregnancies now. It's amazing how time flies, but more than that, it's amazing to get to be along for the ride. To be so proud to get to know a family like theirs.

With all the rain we've had this season, we got so lucky on this day. It rained for days beforehand, and threatened rain again during our session. Instead, the skies cleared and we had the most perfect weather for the best family session.

Perfect to let this family be together and enjoy the moment.
