Even with Washington, DC’s monuments in our backyard, a session is home is still the most beautiful

I see you. I see how much you love your kids. I see you getting up early to make waffles into bear faces. I see you kissing boo boos and wiping away crocodile tears. I see you finding special spots for rock collections and playing dress-up.

And if you’re anything like me, I see you frantically looking for the “pause” button. The moment I first held my baby, I knew that these moments would be gone before I could blink. And as they continue to grow, these pictures help me remember where we started and make me look forward to all that’s on the horizon. 

Washington DC Family Session | Gordon place Photography

Our family sessions together are built on a foundation that helps your family be yourselves, which is exactly what you want to remember when you look back at an album or the prints on your wall together. I want you to be able to remember how they giggled at funny faces; how they fit just-so on your hip; how their hand was so small in yours. 

And what better place to represent your family than home??

Home is where the heart is

Don’t get me wrong, I ADORE the images I have of my own family with the Washington, DC monuments in the background. Some of our best family memories were made here: first kisses in college, first looks on our wedding day, first visit to the Cherry Blossoms. Having lived in this amazing city for over a decade, the District’s city space is the backdrop of so many sweet memories. But I’ve found that these illustrious scenes help me to remember a moment in time, rather than a season. In the hustle and bustle of a family outing, it can be easy to get swept up in the “newness” and everything around you.

I want our session to offer you the chance to really turn inward and just be with your family. Rarely do we have the opportunity to slow down and appreciate what’s right in front of us. I want your investment to be a gift to yourself and your family to where your can truly enjoy your family during our time together, as well as love the images we capture 5, 10, 20 years down the line.

So wherever home is for your – whether it’s this specific season in a city you love or the feeling of cuddling with your loved ones in your own surroundings – there is beauty there that deserves to be remembered.

Storytelling images for sentimental memories

I want your Washington DC family photo session to be a true representation of your family – the real laughs, genuine love, and pure everyday moments.

I hope to work with you and create timeless and heartfelt images for your family to cherish always!
