Marti Austin Photography 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.
(29)

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.

I very nearly missed posting this review of March, because who knew how quickly that month would pass! How quickly this year is moving along!

Do you print your photos? This article gives me all the feels- "And when you are gone and your kids are searching for family pictures, what will they find? A link to an online gallery? An obsolete hard drive? Or boxes and albums full of wonderful printed photos, photos they will hold in their hands and pass around the table and treasure more than gold."

It's always an honor to capture family photos for anyone, but it's a special privilege when I'm asked to capture photos for families welcoming their newly adopted child. I just loved getting to capture this special time for this beautiful family.

I met the Shifflett family through Found Families (formerly Red Thread Sessions), so if you or someone you know is in the process of adopting please reach out to this incredible organization to make sure this time in your family's life is documented!

Thanksgiving is less than a week away, which means the biggest shopping weekend of the year is almost upon us. What better gift to give or receive than family photos!

From Black Friday through Giving Tuesday I'll be sharing a unique offer each day. BUT, the catch is that as each new offer is announced, the previous one(s) will expire and some deals have limited availability, so you need to act quickly to snag your deal! Invoices must be paid and if applicable contracts signed within 24 hours to take advantage of the special pricing!

Each offer will be announced right here on my page, so make sure you're following me to see each new deal as soon as it's posted!

My excitement level right now:

I could spend all day taking portraits of this beautiful girl! Holly

Good morning! I need a bit of help from all you wonderful people. What kind of Small Business Saturday deal would you like best? I'm debating between offering a discount on newly booked sessions, or offering a free print or gift when you book your session. Which would you prefer?
