A Waterfront Newborn Session | Annapolis, MD

This family is our home away from home. Dustin was Sean’s Platoon Leader in Afghanistan in 2010-2011, and our families have stayed close ever since. They live just outside of Pittsburg, and we try to get together a few times year. I have to say, for a long distance friendship we do an excellent job […]

A Mid-Afternoon Family Session | Gore, VA

To spare you of the absolutely mundane, technical details… I have a new website, with a new blog. My old blogs were not able to transfer, but I couldn’t care less. There weren’t many anyways (I think I blogged maybe 5 out of 120 sessions in 2019, whoops)! SOOO here we are… welcome! My name […]

A New Virtual Beginning for Dana Graham Photography | Manassas Battlefield Family Self Portraits

You go with the kids’ flow. It’s just a very basic rule that I’ve learned as a photographer. If you want to keep the kiddos happy, don’t force the photo. Just get them to trust and like you by playing with them and paying attention to them, and they’ll do whatever you ask! This family […]

A Winter Waterfront Family Session | Virginia Beach, Virginia

This little boy smiled in EVERY. SINGLE. PHOTO. How is that even possible?! He was so, so cute and I just was blown away by what a happy guy he was. We spent the session letting him run around and love on his mama and daddy, and I honestly would have stayed there all night […]

Changing Leaves and a Changing Family Session | Washington, DC

The happiest, stick loving, dancing little boy captured my HEART at this family session! How adorable is this little man?! All three of them are actually the cutest little fam, and we all had so much fun at our session. We went down to Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria, Virginia to capture some updated photos […]

A Fall Family Session On The Marsh | Alexandria, Virginia

Fun fact: This family was fully outfitted by Target. And I love every minute of it! These babies are also almost identical to my babies in age and it made me literally go home and book a session of my own that evening haha. We spent the evening at the Rust Nature Sanctuary and had […]

A Fall Family Field Session | Leesburg, Virginia

This sweet family took front porch pictures before they were cool! While this family felt they missed the window for “newborn” photos, we still wanted to do something special for their growing family for mom’s birthday! We spent the morning taking photos on their porch and in their house, and I just love how they […]

A Spring In Home Family Session

True Life Confession: This session made me want to have another baby. …and we are done having babies. But oh man, what I would give to go back and have a Fresh 48 session for both of my babies. I feel like it was such a blur, and I wish I had known then that […]

The Freshest of Fresh 48s at Fairfax Hospital | Fairfax Virginia

Sisters. There is nothing better! And these two are such a fun age apart. One is a blonde and one has dark hair – just like their beautiful and amazing parents! I had such a fun time getting to know this family in Falls Church when I photographed baby number two. It’s so funny to […]
