Jennifer & Brian

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Adam Barnes, so it was my pleasure to second shoot DC-area wedding with him. The Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Gainesville, which I had shot last year, is magnificent to shoot. The Whitehall Manor in Bluemont, VA had the best places for photos–I can’t wait to see what Adam did with the Jen and Brian and their wedding party.

My job for the day was to meet Brian at his parents home and then get details. The details of a wedding are normally a very small part of what do, something I spend little time on, so this was a chance for me to think a little differently.

Having one weekend off from weddings put me right into some portrait sessions. Now I don’t know if I’m the only one who noticed, but this VA has been crazy. It is raining every day, with really strong thunder storms. I’ve had to either cancel sessions and reschedule, or go for it.

Yesterday I was so excited to have a maternity shoot set. I walked around the lushness outside and found the perfect spot between two trees to shoot. And then it poured from the moment she arrived. Our indoor shots were incredible and fun–we worked it. Unfortunately I can not share any of the images. That’s what happens when you work by CIA headquaters. It was a unique session, with lots of laughs. Just wonderful.

But here are some I can show:

Penelope is two months old and so completely aware she took me by surprise. She must be an old soul…

I visited the Easleys over a year ago to document their new addition, now middle child, and their toddler. Now they have three–2, 1 and newborn. I show up and hear the screams and cries from the outside. I expect this when coming to visit kids so young, but the parents never expect it. You’ve got to roll with it. I think all of their images together would be a perfect coffee table book, because they will look back on it and not believe how crazy their life was at that moment!

And a different pregancy shoot when a friend Marlo and my daughter’s BFF came over to let me try some new lighting ideas in my studio. Could anyone be any more goreous while pregnant? And when is this baby going to come and meet us?

Elizabeth and Paul — May 30th

Elizabeth and Paul have been together for about 13 years when they found their way to the altar. They know each other well and they love each other fully. It was fun getting to know them!

Second shooting for Chip Hultman let me to open up, play and have fun this time around. I loved it!
