No matter your age there’s something so fun about hanging out in your own back garden – so if someone tells me that’s where they want to have their shoot I’m all for it!! If someone tells me their child loves to play in the sprinklers then I say “hurrah, I’ll bring my underwater camera […]

I mentioned when I blogged their newborn shoot about how this little guy had the cutest little toes… and was I right??? Love their smiles here – it makes me smile every time I see this pic about how they just laughed and carried on when their little fella pooped – yup, that’s actually what they’re […]

Hope you’re all having a fun Halloween – I don’t think there’s anything spooky at all about my 2 girlies!!!  You may remember a couple of years ago they dressed up in these costumes – this year they were the opposite way round – how much they’ve changed! Head over and check them out and […]

  • shalonda - “believe that life is good, because it IS” what an incredibly powerful bundle of lessons all summed up into one. and what a beautiful way to celebrate LIFE sweet friend xoxo

  • amy grace - oh kirsty, in these few paragraphs, and these other-worldly beautiful pictures, i feel like i just got a tiny glimpse into the warm light of your soul. tears are flowing and love is sent to you, and your brave soul. your openness and kindness is infused in every word. you are so lucky to be matched together. i feel it an honor to read what you’ve shared.

  • Sarah c - Oh sweet love!!! I’m in tears!! This is amazing sweety! The sentiments, the photos. What a treasure for your girls! I am so sorry for your loss!! 🙁 life’s lessons can be devastatingly hard! 🙁

  • Debbie Wibowo - Kristy…your letter is just wonderful. As I am reading your letter, I can’t stop nodding my head, agreeing to what you wrote. Your photography is also beautiful with all the different angles and pov. I can’t wait to see your next post.

  • jaime lackey - oh my goodness. such a sad letter with such a beautiful lesson. one that everyone she hear. i am so sorry for your loss but so thankful for what it has made you and will make your girls! xoxoxo

  • Amy Lucy Lockheart - Oh Kirsty, I think this might be my favorite letter of yours…I can just feel the emotion in every word you wrote. You, my friend, are someone who lives life to the fullest and I see you instilling that important lesson in your girls everyday. Your words ring so true and are a great reminder of how life should be treasured. Your images are stunning. xoxo

  • Sara T - I love your wisdom and that you marked the occasion of this letter with a sad and tragic memory and anniversary. That is okay to mourn and through the mourning, remembering and sadness life is SO MUCH clearer, sharp and succinct. I love your teachings and “life lessons”. I don’t think we learn how to dream enough. You are a true worldly inspiration and no doubt your babes will learn so much from you. Beautiful imagery, as always.

  • Kati - With tears in my eyes you said it best hon. Cheers to living life full speed ahead. xx

I loved this session – loved how excited they were about baby’s impending arrival… not to mention loved how amazing Mum-to-be looked and how she was game for so many ideas for her maternity shoot. Their gorgeous little newborn will be coming soon – let me tell you now, he has THE cutest little toes […]

  • Janine - Beautiful work, Kirsty. I love the documentary style.

Another blog post that has been a long time coming – which is plain shocking because it’s one of my favourite families at my favourite beach and using that old favourite prop, the wheelbarrow – which just happens to live at that beach! (I swear you wouldn’t get me carting a wheelbarrow to shoots but […]

Project 10 time again – wow, the months go so fast this time of year… love this project as much as ever though and shot it last Saturday, on our girls day of dancing classes, slobbing out and playdates 🙂 Woke up next to this little princess… And then peeked in on this one Helping […]

I met this beautiful family down at the beach to make some memories the day before Daddy flew back to Afghanistan. I love that they did this – as military families or expats know all too well there are often times apart, and in those times photographs of our loved ones are so important. I’m […]

I will admit it, as a Mummy of 2, the thought of photographing a family with 4 kids, all under 10, did strike a certain amount of fear in me – yes, I was definitely a little nervous…  But I needn’t have been because I swear I don’t know how these parents do it, but […]

  • Rashmi - So beautifully said my friend. Your Indy-pie reminds me of my own little girl.. her big sister being her hero and sometimes struggling and feeling unsettled without her sister there. These challenges will make them grow and step out of their sister’s shadow and become their own person. Such a blessing to have a sister. <3

  • Amy Lucy Lockheart - Oh sweet Indy! Sometimes it’s tough being a little sister and facing changes and transitions at such a young age. I know you cherish those extra moments with her, Kirsty, and she cherishes her time with you just as much. Such beautiful words to share with your sweetie. xoxo

  • Danielle - Such a sweet letter to Indy. My two were completely dis-combobulated this past summer, and had a crazy 6 weeks. One of them handled it sooo well, the other was not as easy-going. It is hard for these little people to adjust at times (just like us!), and being taken out of their comfort zone can be a good thing. Extra snuggles & hugs are a perfect remedy! I hope we get to see you all this Xmas, we’ll be here. x

  • helke - Oh Kirsty, it’s all so true…and expressed so well. Luisa is a bit going through the same now Asia is going to the school for the big kids. But she’s also doing even more fine ‘on her own’ at kindergarden and now has some more time for her litle sister. Thank you to show me your beautiful letter for your little growing Indy. And: your pics beautiful as usual!

  • SarahB - Your letters are so heartfelt Kirsty – the girls will treasure them so much. lots of love to Indy, hope things are OK for her now xxxx

  • Julia - It took me a few minutes to get to your letter this month, because I couldn’t take my eyes off of these incredible images. Unbelievably beautiful, Kirsty – absolute magic. Your letter was amazing as well, and one that I took to heart as I go through my own changes and wonky time. xoxox

  • Kati - Lovely. I really have no other words. Your baby is growing too fast! xxx

  • Letter To My Daughters | September 25 2012 » Maternity, Newborn, Baby, Children and Family Photographer in Alexandria, VA. - […] follow the blog circle to Kirsty.. who has travelled to so many many wonderful places with her daughters. She keeps a […]

How could I not have blogged this little sweetie? It is such a delight when you go back to celebrate the first birthday of a baby you saw in the first week of life – you may remember that this was the baby we captured with her cat! Unfortunately the cat didn’t comply quite as […]

This family are really special – this is the second time I’ve photographed them as they prepare the welcome a new baby into their lives and they approach it with such joy, and love, and excitement. It’s quite some time since the little fella arrived now (I am shockingly behind on blogging) so I’m going […]
