...love at first sight
It was a perfect night for a photo shoot with good friends in Old Town Leesburg, who are apparently raising soon-to-be teen heartthrobs...
When three becomes four... Introducing handsome, little Kayaan! It was really special to be able to take Yaditi's maternity photos just a few months ago and to also capture Kayaan's newborn photos this week. What a happy family! That's three straight weeks of newborn photos! Who's next?!
The Force is definitely strong with little Wali. Proud papa, Saad, had some special Star Wars props that worked great in this week's newborn session. Irum and I were able to get some great shots; here are a few of our favorites. Congratulations and thanks to Saad and Zenith for choosing me to be their photographer!
It was such an honor to be sweet, little Bernadette's newborn photographer. What a lovely family! Congratulations Mary and Kevin!!

Sweet little Aanav was so well behaved during his newborn shoot this week, which helped me and Irum capture so many wonderful shots. Here's a sneak peek of some of our favorites. Congratulations to Trupti, Khodidas and big brother Dwij!
Friends to the end...
The carnival is back in town...

I’ve been on vacation this week in Oak Island, NC. It wasn’t a great week weather-wise for shooting the stars. Tonight was the clearest night we had all week, but there was enough cloud cover to get in the way of my annual Milky Way selfie. Here’s a quick edit from my lightroom mobile app.
One last newborn shoot and then off for vacation! Little Mahira was so sweet and so cooperative. Mom and dad are lucky to have such a good little sleeper! Congratulations to Megha, Sanjay and Smera! - with Irum Le

A little behind the scenes of a recent edit: converting the original photos to black and white, blending them together, and then masking out Irum's hand and arm:
“If I had my life to live over, instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.” – Erma Bombeck
I've got amazing clients that allow me to try some more creative compositions. Here are some shots where we play with more dramatic back lighting, shadows and editing techniques. - with Irum Le and Jason Van Le
It was an incredibly beautiful evening for a maternity session at One Loudoun and Yaditi was absolutely glowing!
That's a wrap!
Irum and I had a special newborn session last week in South Riding. Little Aydin was so sweet and so sleepy, but he kept fighting off his nap time! He finally gave in and we were able to get some really cute photos. Congratulations Saiqa and Owais! - with Sana Aamir and Jason Van Le and Irum Le
Last Saturday was dark and stormy most of the day and Megha's maternity shoot was in real danger of being postponed. At the last minute,I decided to check the forecast for Boyce, VA and I'm so glad that I did. The weather was perfect at the Virginia State Arboretum at Blandy Farm and Megha and family looked amazing! Congratulations, guys!! - with Irum Le and Jason Van Le
It was the perfect evening for a Senior Photo shoot in Old Town Winchester last Wednesday. Sabrina looked amazing and made my job easy. Congratulations, Sabrina! Contact me to book your Senior Portrait session for just $150.
Over the last couple of weeks, I've had some fantastic photo shoots with some very special Moms. Happy Mother's Day from JVL Photography of Northern Virginia!!!
Before his cake smash shoot, Mom and Dad told me that Gurveer wasn't a big fan of sweets. I'm not too sure they were telling me the truth:
Windy days can wreak havoc on your hair in a photo shoot. Thank goodness for Photoshop!
I bet you'll never guess what this week's shoot was! Here's a hint:
It was great seeing Tanvi, Jimmy and Mishka again at their "Spring" family photo shoot. Mishka has gotten so big! Here's a quick sneak peek from a rare sunny day this season. Enjoy! - with Jason Van Le and Irum Le
Big crowds streaming in from Reston #marchforourlives
Oh what a night!! Sweet little Gurveer had a very special first birthday party and I was honored to be the photographer! I can't wait for the weather to break so we can shoot his cake smash! - with Jason Van Le
I just finished editing my first ever newborn baby boy session! Here's a little behind the scenes look into how Irum and I created some of our shots. We'll start with how the original shots looked straight out of the camera. Then, we'll take a look at how they looked after 1) combining them in Photoshop, 2)editing them for color and 3) cleaning up the composition by adding books and removing the power cord. (Then, one more bonus shot.) Enjoy!
How'd you spend your Sunday evening? Some may have watched the #Oscars... Other's may have photographed a very special first birthday party...
Received my first JVL Photography of NOVA metal print! This is from my trip to Vietnam in 2016 and was taken at the Hon Chong Stone Garden in Nha Trang (the sweatiest place I’ve ever been).
Here are some more highlights from Sunday afternoon's newborn and family session with sweet, little Luca, Nick and Nerene Merlino. There were so many great photos, it's hard to pick just a few!
Irum and I spent the afternoon with this handsome little man. I was so happy with how this session went that I had to do one quick edit before baseball practice tonight. This one is definitely a new look for my newborn portraits and I just had to share it. I'll be posting more over the next few weeks! Congratulations Nerene and Nick Merlino!
I'm heading to Seattle this week with Irum and I don't want to pack. So, I'm editing photos instead! Charlie was my first newborn baby boy session and he couldn't have made things easier for me. He was such a good little sleeper and he's super cute!
Irum and I spent the day with two very special valentines. Congratulations Carrie and welcome to the world, Charlie!
Happy Valentine's Day from me and my Valentine!
Such an honor to be a part of this wonderful announcement! Congratulations David, Haven and James!!
My first session of 2018 was last weekend - shooting head shots and a star was born! Best of luck, Mia!!
Getting my lighting set up for my first photoshoot of the year tomorrow and realized I could get some free basketball photos too!#Winning
