Ashburn, Virginia Lifestyle Photographer Families | Maternity | Newborn | Children I am a storyteller. My goal every time I pick up my camera is to capture your beautiful moments, strong connections, captivating stories, and powerful emotions.

Photography has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember, but my passion really took off when I my daughter came along. Capturing the pure and candid moments of her childhood has become one of my greatest joys, and nothing makes my heart happier than capturing those same moments for other families.

Mission: I am a storyteller. This is my goal every time I pick up my camera, whether I'm photographing my own family or yours: to capture beautiful moments, strong connections, captivating stories, and powerful emotions- the good and the bad.

Let's break up all of the doom and gloom posts with a cute little baby who is quickly approaching a whole year old already! I can't believe it's been that long already Maddie!


How is everyone holding up? My family and I are healthy, but we are taking this social distancing thing seriously. I've postponed all my sessions for the next month at least, so for the next several weeks I'll be sharing some of my favorite photos from past sessions.

How are you planning to keep your kids busy while practicing social distancing over the next few weeks? So far some plans I have are:

โ–ช๏ธ Cut and paste magazine collages
โ–ช๏ธ Make our own playdough
โ–ช๏ธ Go "fishing" with a stick and string
โ–ช๏ธ Nature hike and scavenger hunt
โ–ช๏ธ Bake treats
โ–ช๏ธ Draw with window markers (pictured!)
โ–ช๏ธ Board games, puzzles, and books galore
โ–ช๏ธ Build a blanket fort and watch a movie (I hear Frozen II will be out on Disney+ soon!)

What's on your list? Let's see how many fun ideas we can crowd source here!

What a crazy, unpredictable week it's been. Let's all take a break from the chaos to admire these two adorable milk drunk babies ๐Ÿ˜ Rynnel + Tim

How precious are these two little brothers? Cuddled up all cozy together and sleeping soundly ๐Ÿ˜ Rynnel Gibbs Laughlin

Don't forget... ๐Ÿ˜‚

These cold, rainy days are really making me miss the warmer weather. Who else is ready for spring? ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ

As Facebook so loves to remind me, I haven't shared anything to my page in while. Here's a little personal project I've been working on to keep busy during the slow months. I'm thinking of offering wedding dress minis this spring... chime in everyone, is that something you all would be interest in?

Every night when my family sits down to dinner, we talk about what we appreciate from that day. Sometimes it's the big things, like spending quality time together or having a safe home and warm bed. Sometimes it's little things we do for each other, like remembering to put dirty socks in the hamper or making a favorite food for dinner.

Today, I want to make sure each and every family I've met and photographed in 2019 knows how very much I appreciate you. Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your lives and your little ones in 2019. I hope to see you all again in 2020 and I hope to meet many new families throughout the coming year!

I'm not typically a fan of "look at the camera and smile" photos, but when the smiles are *this* beautiful and genuine, how could I not love it?? ๐Ÿ˜ Amanda

Welcome baby Louis! Wide awake or sound asleep this little guy was so incredibly precious ๐Ÿ˜ I could have snuggled him all day! Leah

I'm so in love with those sweet little curls ๐Ÿ˜

Tonight I get to share one of my favorites from Julie's family session! Last time I got to take photos of this sweet family Amelia was just a newborn and soon she'll be celebrating her first birthday! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

How is it Wednesday already? This week is flying and I haven't shared any photos from the past weekend yet! Prepare for lots of sneak peeks in the next day or two! First up, the beautiful Gouldey family!

Just your typical, traditional family portrait ๐Ÿ˜† I love, love, love, spending time with this sweet family and these silly girls!

Just a mama and her girls ๐Ÿ˜

Happy Weekend! I'm just about ready to send this sweet guy's gallery off and then back to the editing grind, complete with wine and take out ๐Ÿท๐Ÿฅก

Happy Weekend (does a little happy dance)! I'm getting ready to send off this gallery to the Randolph family! Look at that little smile peeking out from behind dad's shoulder ๐Ÿ˜

Me: Can you feel your dad's cheek? Is it smooth or scratchy?
Her: *Accidentally smacks her dad in the face*


So in love with this sweet mother/son moment ๐Ÿ˜

I have two gorgeous families to share with you from this weekend, but first I want to introduce the newest member of the Austin family. This is Gus, our new pet hedgehog! He came home this weekend and is slowly exploring and adjusting to his new home. I can't wait to share more photos of this cutie!

I love families with a sense of humor! The Chao family found these shirts, and whether you read it Chaos or chaos, it definitely sums up life with two toddlers!

Happy First Day of Fall! ๐Ÿ‚ Here's the cutest little gummy smile to celebrate! Whitney

Summer Recap | Ashburn, Virginia Lifestyle Family Photography โ€” Marti Austin Photography

Three months of our summer photos are up on the website! This week I'll continue catching up on blogging recent client sessions as well as gearing our little family up for the start of the school year! Marti Austin If you follow along here or on my page, you may have seen my monthly recaps over the past few years. Last summer I attempted to take one photo a day and post a weekly update; as you can imagine, that didnโ€™t last long. This year, I thought I would try the complete opposite: one very long, ...

Let's play spot the difference in this before and after! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm debating editing this little photo bomber into the corner of all of their family pictures, what do we think? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Julie

I said "Okay, it's time to give mama some snuggles!" and he curled up so perfectly in her lap ๐Ÿ˜ What a sweetheart this little one was, I can't wait to share more from this family/maternity session! Julie

Well apparently today is National Photography Day... who knew! If I've ever taken photos for your family, I'd love for you to share your favorite in the comments below!

Happy First Birthday to this little sweetheart! โค๏ธ

Claude Moore Park Maternity Session | Sterling, Virginia Lifestyle Photography

Just look how much this little sweetheart has grown, and soon sheโ€™ll be a big sister! For this lifestyle maternity session, we chose to meet at The Heritage Farm Museum at Claude Moore Park, where Riley thorough...

โ€œWe owe it to each other to tell stories.โ€

I am a storyteller. Each person, each family has a unique story, and through my lens I strive to tell yours. The way your newborn curls into your chest. The way your little one holds your fingers as they're learning to walk. The way you and your partner look into each other's eyes and smile at a joke only the two of you are privy to. The way your eyes light up when you watch your children playing. The way your children run to you when they're scared, or excited, or hurt. These are the little moments worth remembering, the little moments your children deserve to have physical reminders of. The moments you deserve to experience fully. Step out from behind your camera and let me do the documenting.

This is my goal every time I pick up my camera, whether I'm photographing my own family or yours: to capture beautiful moments, strong connections, captivating stories, and powerful emotions- the good and the bad.

To document your story.
