I have been wanting to shoot a session in Old Town Alexandria for a while now. There’s this alleyway (let’s call it the Alexandria, VA, alleyway, shall we?) that I see all my wedding photographer friends utilize and I started dreaming about shooting a session there.

Yesterday I booked a brand new client who signed on for FOUR sessions. She’s 34 weeks pregnant, staring down the barrel of labor and delivery, realizing that the clock is ticking and that, if she wants to document this child’s story from pregnancy to first birthday, she’d better get on it!

Sitter sessions are my favorite. (Okay, I have lots of favorites, don’t go taking me literally – my other blogs will contradict me.) Sitter sessions really are ones that I look forward to for a bunch of reasons, the highlight of which is no stranger danger here! So…what do I like about baby sitter sessions? […]
