We met up with this sweet family of 3 in Washington DC at The Yards Park before heading to their adorable home. This Capitol Hill lifestyle family session was filled with real moments – stopping to feed Stella, walking around carrying all the baby bags with all the baby things, diaper changes, plus lots of laughter, cuddles and love. It’s obvious these two are crazy about each other and head over heels with their baby girl. They spend a lot of time together walking around The Yards Park and particularly love the birch trees and riverfront boardwalk, which reminds them both of growing up in their coastal hometown.
Originally this was meant to be a maternity session, but bad weather and life changes turned it into a newborn session, then more bad weather happened and we finally settled on a lifestyle family session. I think it was meant to be – these photos feel very much like “them” with Stella old enough to have the most adorable expressions.
Lem is an impressive hobby mixologist and whipped up a few afternoon cocktails for all of us with Green Hat Gin from a DC distillery, New Columbia. They also tipped us with a whole bottle of gin and we can’t wait to try a few of their cocktail suggestions. Thank you guys!
