Meet sweet baby Jackson.  He has the distinction not only of having the most gorgeous full head of hair of any of the week-old newborns I have photographed, but also of being my very first celebrity client. 🙂  If any of you have watched the most recent season of the Bravo tv show “Newlyweds The First Year,” you are familiar with Laura and Kirk, season two’s endearing and good-natured Washington, D.C. based couple.  At the time that Laura and Kirk booked me for their newborn portraits, I had never seen or heard of “Newlyweds The First Year” but, naturally, I had to start watching!  Not only did I become hooked on the show, but, by the time of Jackson’s newborn session, I felt like Kirk and Laura were old friends.  I had such a great time chatting with them as I snuggled and photographed their gorgeous little boy.

Although I am always overjoyed for every single one of my newborn clients (I seriously think that I am often as excited as the new parents :)), I am truly bursting with happiness for Kirk and Laura.  As fans of “Newlyweds” know, Laura and Kirk traveled a difficult and painful road to parenthood; my heart broke for them as they openly shared their journey.  So when they arrived for their portrait session with gorgeous, healthy, perfect-in-every-way baby Jackson, my eyes may have gotten a little moist.  I couldn’t possibly be happier for Laura and Kirk.  And, baby Jackson, I know that you couldn’t possibly be more loved.


I first met this beautiful family several years ago when I photographed the littlest member of the family as a newborn. . .it is so hard to believe that he is now talking and running around, trying to keep up with his big brother and sister!  I always enjoy spending time with this sweet family, and capturing their relationships with one another – can’t you just feel the love emanating from their photos?  (And I usually get a great workout running around with the kiddos! :)) And we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for our session…just look at that yummy golden sunset!

Thank you, B family, for choosing Tina Krafts Photography to capture your family’s memories!
