Meet Antoinette and Peek at Our Newborn & Family Photos


In June, we welcomed our fourth (and final) biological child. We are elated! Antoinette June is the perfect addition to our family. She tolerates the noise and chaos of the three older siblings and two parents trying to manage life as a family of six. 

We are so grateful to have gotten newborn photos taken with Danielle Sara Photography. Of course, I used our Guide to Local Photographers to find our newborn photographer. Danielle’s photos on her Instagram feed and website caught my eye. I love the beauty and simplicty of her work. Danielle has a full-service photography studio with everything anyone would need for newborn photos. She has gobs of wraps and bows and other accessories. Her studio is professional and fun–and reflects Danielle and her work perfectly. Danielle’s Assistant, Amanda, also helps during photo shoots and she is equally amazing. I cannot recommend Danielle Sara Photography enough!

Just the girls.

Antoinette was awake during a lot of the session and she was fussy and nursing, but Danielle was very patient and fun to hang out with while we waited for her to fall asleep.
Danielle worked hard to make sure each of Antoinette’s fingers were placed perfectly.
No we didn’t go out and purchase a bunch of peonies and place them perfectly everywhere. Danielle was able to edit them in!

Courtney was born and raised in Louisiana where she met her husband (married in 2005). Since then they have moved several times, but finally feel very settled in NW DC after moving back a little over two years ago. She has four energetic kids: Cormac (2010), Evangeline (2013), and Solomon (2016), and Antoinette (2019). She thinks motherhood is absolutely wonderful, but she is constantly challenged and stretched in ways she couldn't have imagined. She spends her days talking Star Wars, legos, playing dress-up, and chasing her toddler. We all know motherhood is challenging so she wanted to band together with other mothers to start this site to inspire, learn, and grow together. She loves morning coffee, chocolate, chatting with people since she's an extrovert, a clean house (which is rare these days). She dislikes when her kids don't listen the first time, she abhors littering, and doesn't enjoy shopping.
