Ashburn Virginia First Birthday Documentary Session / Baby Leo

Oh, the places you’ll go! How adorable is this Dr. Seuss-themed, first birthday documentary session I captured in Bristow, Virginia last weekend? Having taken Leo’s newborn as well as milestone portraits, his first birthday was very special to me. With a great interest in documentary photography sessions, I was given the opportunity to photograph this adorable, extremely colorful and super fun event for Leo and his family. Whereas most of my sessions tend to be more styled and posed, documentary sessions focus on candid moments, completely natural and real. For three hours I was crawling on the floor trying to keep up with Leo, stealthily sneaking up on his guests and hunting for the cutest baby smiles and laughter that was in the air.

Can you guess how many fish are in the mug? I loved the interactive activities. Even relatives from overseas were able to participate. Thank Goodness for technology! Who would have thought that a first birthday get-together could be so much fun. Thank you for having me😬
