Laura & Jeff – Christmas Tree Farm Maternity Portraits



I’ve known Laura since freshman year of college in Texas (and if I tell you how many years that is I’ll feel old) and I’m honored to call her a good friend! Incidentally, she also happens to be a very talented wedding planner if you might need one. :) Anyway, I know just how wanted and loved this baby is, and I have zero doubts about how incredible Jeff and Laura will be at this parenting business. Congratulations guys!

Mini Sessions – Washington DC Family Portrait Photography



My first-ever set of mini sessions was a success! If you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about with this term, mini sessions are basically abbreviated portrait sessions for a cheaper price. This year, I’m offering them for $150 and you’ll receive 5 images of my choosing, with the option to view and purchase the rest. I saw lots of familiar faces (previous clients, yay!) and met some new ones, and now due to popular demand, I’m offering a second date for sessions – this Saturday, the 19th!  I have three slots left to fill – shoot me an email for more information or to sign up: emily@emilychastain.com. Turn-around time is 7-10 days so it is not too late for holiday cards. :)

Caleb – Howard County Maryland Newborn Photography



This little guy. I could not believe that he was not even three weeks at the time of this session! He was acting like a two-month-old at least – so alert and attentive. Sleeping newborns are great, but I love seeing the variety in all these adorable faces. Mom and Dad originally said they didn’t want to be in any photos, but after some convincing on my part, they agreed to a casual jerseys pic and we snapped a few in the bedroom. They ended up being some of my favorites of the day! It warms my heart to see two awesome parents so totally enamored with their child.

Levey Family – Washington DC Family Photography



I love this family so much! I get excited whenever Rachel contacts me for an updated family session because it is always such a joy. A few weeks ago, the whole family was in town, and it was fun seeing everyone for the first time since Rachel and Brian’s wedding five years ago. These guys have such great chemistry and are comfortable in front of the camera, and it really shows. There’s nothing better than seeing a family truly love each other and enjoy being together!

Winger Family – Annapolis Family Photography



Lindsay and Josh are some of the kindest and best people I know, and I’m privileged to call them my friends. It’s such a treat seeing their kids grow up in real life and from behind the lens! We all just ran around the backyard for these, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Dooley Family – Annapolis Baby Photography



I love this family! It’s always heartwarming to see past couples I’ve photographed doing so well, and an honor to meet their new little ones. Macklin is just the cutest with his blue eyes and red hair. And look at that smile!

Meet Kyle! (St. Louis Family Photography)



It’s always an honor and privilege to get to photograph my friends. I met Nick and Sarah 5+ years ago when I showed up to shoot their engagement session and discovered they lived in the same apartment building as my then-fiancé. It was almost an instant friendship consisting of lots of pool time and probably an equal amount of Bruster’s ice cream, and I have loved them ever since. Then they moved and ruined it all! Haha, only kidding. Sure do miss ‘em, but I’m so happy to see them happy in St. Louis (where they managed to acquire a house and a dog and a new baby basically all within a year.) I was lucky enough to get to spend a long weekend out there recently and meet baby Kyle for the first time. Who, let’s be honest, is ridiculously adorable. (See for yourself.) Thanks guys – I’m looking forward to many visits in the future and knowing I always having a home away from home!

Levey Family – Hotel Monaco Family Portraits



I so love this family! Rachel and Brian were wedding clients of mine back in 2011, and it’s been awesome to see their family grow. They are such awesome people, and seeing them again this year was a treat. The day we picked for the shoot was kinda nasty and rainy outside, but we wandered around the Hotel Monaco in DC, which turns out has tons of photo ops. Judah was incredible! Rachel and Brian were so smart to bring Brian’s sister Deena along to help make Judah smile, and it worked like a charm. This kid barely stopped grinning the entire day. And since we were right around the corner from Shake Shack, we celebrated a successful shoot with some burgers and fries. Hope to see these guys again soon!
