October 12th–Kathleen & Peter

Friday, October 31st, 2008

It can be a strange thing–walking into someone’s life for one of the most important days of their life–and becoming very involved in their lives for just one day. There has to be a lot of trust there.

So I barely know Kathleen and Peter, and I think by their own admission they classify themselves as eccentric. Kathleen is an absolute riot and so good natured. She found her match in Peter, whom complements Kathleen with reserve and genuine love. Their love was obvious, genuine and real.

They chose a pumpkin patch at United Methodist of North Bethesda as their ceremony site and then the Church’s hall for the reception–an old fashioned BBQ. It really could not have been better. Her bridemaid’s t-shirt cracked me up.

her big melons–she couldn’t resist

leapin’ brides–in her bridal keds

they were so beautiful on the dance floor. They just glided.

Many, many portrait sessions

Friday, October 31st, 2008
It is definitely October–one of the most favorite months of the year for portrait sessions. The weather is amazing, the colors are perfect, and people are getting into the fall routine.
It’s been a whirlwind October.

Halloween is a great holiday. Kev and I played Axl and Slash. snicker. : ) Not many men look good in short shorts.
Nicole is so beautiful, in so many ways. She is completely eccentric with fabulous taste and an amazing artist that does beautiful commissioned work all over. She did my “L” logo for me, and as an added thank you, I wanted to take some pictures of her. She was a great model.
I took the onelight workshop in Orange, NJ on Tuesday the 21st and got to use my chops for this shoot. I LOVED it!

Juliana is so delicious as almost one-year old. I can’t get enough of chubby bottoms in tutus. I was so glad to head into DC to meet up with her and Mom.


The Wolks were so much fun and were perfectly suited to the relaxed lifestyle session we did at Meadowlark Gardens. They were chilled, ready to roll in the leaves, and be very patient waiting for the kids to get used to me and the camera. Lots of love in this family.

The Henrys live right up the road and have three of the most photogenic children I have ever met. Will you just look at them? And real smiles to boot. Great kids!

Declan is just so yummy and so handsome and I was glad to Mom right in there with him. Too often, Mom is behind the camera. Years go by before you realize there aren’t good pictures of you and the kids. We got them here! Great baby! Great Mom!

October 18th Jessica & Jim

Monday, October 27th, 2008

Jessica and Jim rented a fantastic log home on Deep Creek for the incredibly beautiful ceremony and reception. It was just beautiful!

When given lemons… A first for me–their beautiful four layers cake slid right off of itself. It still tasted incredible!

October 4 Jana & David

Monday, October 27th, 2008

It was a perfect day for Jana & David. Their ceremony at the Foundry Methodist Church and reception at the Jurys Hotel in Dupont were beautiful. Chip and I loved getting to know this couple.

So sweet–their first dance was to a song David’s brother wrote as a kid.

October is here!

What isn’t to love about October. I noticed some maple leaves in full, brilliant color today. It stopped me in my tracks. And it was topped off with a day in the 80s. Perfect!

The Sokols are so easy to shoot–they roll right into the session and are ready to have some fun (and show me great parts of DC to boot). Very cool:








OMG. I don’t know how they do it. Two 18-month old boys and an almost 4-year old girl. The kids did so well. And so did the parents:





I have to throw a pic of Bear Nash in:

Bella and her Daisy troop had a blast at pumpkinville. Me too. It was fun.



I love newborn shoots, and Baby Declan’s was no exception…
