About Maisi Julian Photography:

Welcome to my blog! Thanks for stopping by. I am a Family photographer in Alexandria, Virginia specializing in children and newborns. My style is edgy, modern, sophisticated & fun. I enjoy finding outdoor locations to shoot kids (well, you know what I mean!) in the northern VA and Washington, D.C. area. In addition to photography, I love all things related to design, food, and crafty stuff! So I'll be posting lots of different photos and topics here. Please leave a comment, and check out my website for more info!

    I could watch kids pretend playing all day (well, I basically do since I have a 4 year old and a 7 year old!).  This little boy wanted to wear his Superman cape for the beginning of our photo session, so I just let him play and tried to sneak these shots.  You can tell that he really thinks he IS Superman when he has that cape on.  Isn’t a child’s imagination amazing???  Too bad as adults we forget how much fun it is to be in the moment like this.   For a great explanation of the importance of pretend play for children Click Here
