Lily-Grace Harper Birth Session (live birth content)

This was by far one of the most beautiful and surreal sessions I have EVER captured. There is no other way to put it. I captured Ashley & Justin for their 1 year anniversary session, when they first found out they were expecting and again for their maternity portraits. They prayed for this little one.

 

Ashley's mom flew in for a whole month to be with her daughter and son-in-law. She and Justin's mom were there to witness the labor and birth of sweet Lily-Grace Harper. Ashley had three interchanging Doula's and was completely prepped for her 48 hours of labor, with their favorite music playing and flash cards for encouragement.

She was in and out of the birthing tub with help from her amazing husband Justin, practicing her breathing between contractions. Ashley chose a natural, drug-free labor. I was in and out of the hospital 4-5 times capturing special moments and finally on Sunday March 13th at 3:01pm Lily-Grace made her debut!

Welcome Lily-Grace Harper Smith! It was an honor capturing your birthday! -Sasha

Katrina + Roman

The great thing about traveling is that I get to see and visit with friends and family I haven't hugged in a long time. On my last visit to D.C. my childhood (elementary school) friend Katrina reached out and I was more than excited to head over and capture her and her sweet new guy Roman. 

Roman is at that age where he loves his toes, my favorite stage! Don't let his quiet disposition fool you, he is very curious. He is currently teething and rolling all over to see everything. Super adorable. Thanks Katrina & Roman for letting me stop by!

The Rogers Family

Ok... I will admit. As a photographer, sometimes going into a clients home can be a bit scary. You have no idea what kind of conditions you are walking into and how adequate the lighting will be. As soon as I walked into to Brittany's home I immediately smiled knowing I was in good hands.

Her sweet & energetic 4 year old daughter, Taylor greeted me, immediately giving me all the details on her brand new baby sister, Rilee. Rilee was a dream, slept the entire session, even through multiple wrap changes. Could not have asked for a better newborn.

The rogers family exuded love and warmth and everything nice. Brittanys parents Dereck and Tracey were absolutely amazing and I could not get over how youthful they were. I look forward to working with this amazing family agains soon! -Sasha
