Zaynab Turns One | Northern VA Photographer

“Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.” – Harriette Hartigan

As you all know I am a mother. To four beautiful children, the most beautiful people I have ever seen. They are what inspire me and push me to be the best I can be in all areas of life. I can’t believe that our youngest babe, our last babe, is already ONE! This year for her birthday I decided to *try* something new. I wanted to take an image every hour. I tried and missed a few, but that’s ok. This sweet, kind, gentle, calm, go with the flow, happy, smart girl is exactly what we needed. This was the most perfect way to document this sweet girl and her siblings and how I hope to remember that day. Our last baby turning One, not longer technically a baby. I am forever grateful for this ability to document my family and other families. I hope they look back on these and remember these days just as I do, or in their own perspective. But that the memory is there. I did take some cake smash photos of this sweet girl and will share those on social media, but these. These are my favorite. Raw, honest & real. Also, printing. Please if you do a day in the life session, or any session with me, PRINT your images. Make them come alive! <3.  Happy birthday sweet, sweet girl of mine. I pray that you always have kindness in your heart and that you always have peace. I pray that you always know you are loved unconditionally.
