While 2020 is known for many not-so-great things, it was also what I would consider a baby boom for prior ALP couples! Between dog babies and human babies, so many of my former clients welcomed a new addition this year and I couldn’t have been more excited to watch their families grow! I was even so lucky to document this for many of them, doing multiple in-home newborn sessions, anniversary sessions, and even family sessions throughout the district.
If you’re reading this, you likely know I consider myself a Washington, DC wedding and engagement photographer, but getting to step outside my box and do something different is always such a joy. I, unfortunately, am only able to document newborns and families for my past clients due to my current workload, but anytime I see their names pop up in my inbox, I get a twinge of excitement thinking about reconnecting.
It’s surreal visiting my client’s home and getting to see their photos from the big day spread all over their walls — as if it’s our own little secret connection linking us together for years to come. That may sound strange to some, but likely not my clients who know I value our personal connection and like to show up on their wedding day feeling more like a friend than just another random vendor.
I know 2020 wasn’t the year that so many of us hoped it would be, but I’m thankful for the extra time in my schedule that allowed me to document so many repeat ALP couples! I might be biased, but I think you all have just about the cutest darn babies I’ve ever seen!
To all my repeat clients, thank you for welcoming into your lives again, and again, and again — I’m eternally grateful to have met you and to continue to be part of your story!
