Welcome to my blog, where I share highlights of everything from my client's wedding days and portrait sessions, to recent features and our adventures around the world. 

Hi, I'm Alicia.

Lifestyle Newborn Session

Feb 23, 2015

How have I not blogged about this wonderful family before!? THIS is the family that got me into photography, literally my first paying clients! Let me tell you a bit about how I got my start… 

I’ve known John & Becky since I started working for the Federal government in 2009. The funny part of the story is, I knew them separately first — before they knew each other! John and I were part of a rotational program that allowed us to move from one area of our agency to another every few months before returning to our home base, where I worked with Becky. John ended up doing a rotation in my office and working on a months long project with her where, well, I guess you could say the rest is history. 

Fast forward to last winter — Becky had just gotten pregnant with their second child and wanted to capture memories of this major milestone, regretting that they hadn’t with their first. She asked if I could take some pictures of the three of them before the new baby arrived. I of course agreed — these are truly two of the kindest people you will ever meet, I doubt they ever get a no!! — and after we finished our session I realized that this is what it’s like to get paid to do something you are passionate about. I ran home to tell Rob about how fun it had been he immediately encouraged me to give it a go. If you’re reading this post, you probably know how the rest of the story goes…

Well John & Becky’s latest bundle of joy arrived a few months ago and I had the honor of doing a lifestyle newborn shoot with their family. In spite of photographing this session during a crazy wedding season, I found it surprisingly calm and serene being in the presence of new life.  I could literally write pages about what wonderful and inspiring parents these two are, but I’ll just say this — one of their children is bound to change the world.

I will be eternally grateful for the gentle nudge that Becky gave me in getting this business launched. I can only hope to continuing photographing their family for years to come! Enjoy some of my favorites :)
