Ibrahim & Family | McLean, VA family photographer

First there was Junnah, then there was Jibrael and now comes Ibrahim.

Ibrahim is nine months old and as cute as can be. He was dressed all dapper when I arrived, so of course I had to make his mom strip him down to just his white onesie.

His big brother Jibrael, who is 3 now had a late night the previous night and when I got there was not interested in any kind of photographs. He was being his age and having a massive meltdown in the buff. Now it is never a good idea to try and make a three year old do anything when they are in such a state, so we let him calm down at his own pace.

Junnah, who will be five later this year was also  a perfect illustration of her age. She loved my pink shoes, and one minute wanted her photo taken and the next was soooo tired and needed a nap. We made the best of it. To me, at this point in their life, a perfect family portrait would almost be unreal. As their mom told me, she doesn’t get a chance to eat most days, the days are long. So I knew that I would just document what I saw, the beautiful chaos of the early years. There are many years in the future where a perfect family portrait (whatever that means!) is possible. But today, we made something better.
