Washington, DC Family Photography

I love when a family invites me back.  I was invited to document Julian and Leo about two years ago when I just started my journey into documentary family photography.  Back then it was just the two of them and Leo was the baby.  Now they have baby Nolan. Not much as changed except that Julian and Leo have added a new member to their pack.

Mom and Dad do an amazing job keeping three boys entertained and moving. We spent Sunday morning playing with toys, eating breakfast, and then a visit to the National Arboretum for a pickup baseball game and a picnic lunch.

Is there a boy household that is not obsessed with light sabers and Star Wars?

Julian and Leo have a very extensive train collection and spend hours playing together with it.

A weekend ritual – making the coffee for mom and dad.

A sprinkle of cinnamon sugar makes your toast taste even better.

And makes it the first thing you eat off your breakfast plate.

Someone knows exactly where the next tidbit is coming from.

Meanwhile, Nolan is still on his morning nap.

Diaper changing always requires tickling!

And don’t forget to brush your teeth!

Nolan is the happiest sweetest baby I’ve ever seen.

Nolan was teething big time and big brother often helped when his teething toy would fall out of reach.

This says a lot about how much Dad loves his boys.

Dad loves to be silly with them too.

Nolan can cat-nap anywhere – very much a third kid.
