Lisa & Mark – San Francisco Maternity Photographer



Lisa has been my best friend for practically forever (seriously, freshman year of college) and I’m so lucky to get to document her milestones through the years. I’ve never been a mother, but it’s really cool to experience it through your closest friends. I flew to San Francisco recently for Lisa’s baby shower and to hang out pre-baby. We did these maternity photos over two days, hoping for a sunny day each time, but the weather had different plans. In the end, I think the cloudy skies perfectly matched our locations! We drove around Hawk Hill for some views of the Golden Gate bridge, and paid a visit to the Sutro Baths. Lisa’s beautiful smile and Mark’s positive disposition made these two a joy to shoot. It’s easy to see how excited they are about Baby G, and I can’t wait to meet her (or him!) very soon.

Levey Family – Washington DC Family Photography



You might recognize these beautiful faces from being on my blog before! They are not strangers to my camera and I love it. This family is one of my all-time favorite families, and getting to chronicle their life through the years is an honor and a treat. This time around I saw their new home and met their new babe, Caleb. Caleb has big shoes to fill from his older brother Judah being so photogenic, but he is well on his way! So adorable. :)

Taylor Family – Baltimore Family Portrait Photographer



This was a treat. I loved getting to see Matt and Jenn again, five years after their wedding, and meeting their two beautiful children! We hung out, ran through sprinklers, and I even got to share in some ice cream. It was summer family fun at its best and I felt honored to be there to capture it!

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. :)

I was delighted when Caithlin and Mark contacted me for this family session, and excited to meet their new addition, Connor! I could not get over the full head of hair on this kiddo! So adorable.

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.
