Mommy & Me (before baby)

Happy Friday! It’s only fitting that my next blog post be to celebrate the arrival of Tristan Shaw. He’s baby number two for one of my best friends. Tristan was born Thursday, April 27th, 2017 and is growing fast—see adorable new image of him at the bottom of the post! I love capturing those first days of life and am so thrilled to see this family of three now a happy family of four.

Just a month before Tristan was born, I snuck away with Karin and her daughter Daphne for a Mommy & Me session. I can’t even call it work when I get to hang out and take pictures with old friends—and in a gorgeous Level 9 luxury suite at The Dupont Circle Hotel in Washington, DC.

Daphne fell in love with the camera, the natural light in the suite was beautiful and even the baby bump cooperated perfectly, giving a few kicks when he heard his big sister laugh. I was thrilled to be able to capture this joy in the photos as my friend enjoyed the final days of mommy time with just her little girl…


And welcome to the world Tristan Shaw Tanabe Fischer!
