    Old Town Alexandria Family Photo Session

    Saturday, September 6th, 2014




    This little fella liked to RUN!!  We were ALL sweaty by the time their photo session was over, and you can tell that he was ready for a good, long summer nap when we finished.  We explored some of my favorite nooks and crannies of Old Town, Alexandria.

    Ben at One!

    Friday, July 18th, 2014

    I had the pleasure of photographing this little sweetie when he was just a few days old.  Now he is already a BIG BOY!!  I just love the canvas his mom had made.  It’s a collage of all his favorite things and the cute things he does at ONE!

    One year olds are so fun to photograph.  They usually aren’t talking yet, but they are curious and mobile, and I love running around after them (often on my knees) so I can capture their curiosity and hopefully get some great smiles and laughs!!

    “Save The Date” Engagement Session {Old Town Alexandria}

    Friday, January 25th, 2013

    It was the middle of January, but luckily we had a fairly warm day (if mid 50s is warm!) to do this fun shoot in Old Town for “Save the Date” pictures.  This fun couple is getting married in Miami in January 2014, so I was just happy it wasn’t snowing in these pictures!  Although, that could have made for a funny “Save the Date” card!

    I love how laid back and down to earth they were.  You can tell that they are good friends.  I loved hearing about their engagement, too, which included a horse drawn carriage!

    Mother Son Portraits (Old Town Alexandria, VA)

    Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

    This was a special shoot for me because I understand the special bond between a mom and son.   This age is wonderful because little boys are full of energy, but they are old enough to talk, listen and engage.  But they also love to laugh, tell jokes, and have fun.  We had a great time together, and their love really came through in the photos.










    Family of Three {Old Town Alexandria Photo Shoot}

    Monday, July 9th, 2012

    Maisi Julian Photography

    We had a perfect photo shoot!  This family  of three was so fun, and we had grogeous weather and a beautiful Old Town Alexandria setting to take pictures of their gorgeous 6 month old little girl.   And we were able to fit in some great family shots, too!  I did this sweetie pie’s newborn photos, and it was fun to see how much she has grown.

    Senior Portraits {Old Town Alexandria}

    Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

    Seniors are so different from little kids.  It’s so cool to try different poses (hard to do with little ones)  and I get to stay in one place most of the time (with little ones, I’m constantly running around!).  This Senior was gorgeous AND so fun.  Love how her portraits came out.

    Family Portrait

    How beautiful is this family?  Had so much fun following them around while we walked, blew bubbles, and did some posing for GORGEOUS portraits in Old Town Alexandria.  Don’t you just love the little girl’s dress??  The mom said she got it at www.shrimpandgritskids.com  Just love the big bow, too.

    Old Town Alexandria Family Fun

    Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

    We had a great time in Old Town doing this family portrait session.  The daddy is leaving for a deployment in Afghanistan, so I was thrilled that they asked me to take some family pictures before he leaves.  His sons could not be any cuter.   I hope being able to look at these photographs makes his time there a little better.  What a beautiful family!! Don’t you agree?  Remember:  Maisi Julian Photography offers a 10% discount to all active duty military families.  Thank you for your service!

    Spring Is In The Air!

    Thursday, March 8th, 2012

    I’m so excited that spring is {almost} here!  It was a little chilly on the day of this shoot, but this beautiful family was so fun that we hardly noticed!   Some of my favorite photos from this session are the ones where no one is looking at the camera.  Doesn’t the oldest boy remind you of George Clooney?    The little one looks like a J. Crew model, and the sister is just gorgeous. . .I feel like the B&W of her gives a glimpse into how she will look as an adult.  Love it when that happens!  I also love the blue.   If you are thinking about what to wear for your family portrait session, think about bold, solid colors like blue!
