DC Family Portraits: Max and Zoe!

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

I met Zoe and Max just less than a year ago when Max so, so little and Zoe just about two years old. Zoe is now an independent (fiercely–she is just my little Nut) and charming little girl with best smiling eyes I’ve seen a long time. Max is a delicious new walker, ready to take the world by storm.

I have so many images to share with them that really tell the story of their life at this moment. The chaos, giggles, tantrums, and need for naps. It’s all so perfect–just as it is. One of my favorite images is of Max pulling a pose out of nowhere. He is ready for GQ. Look at this delicious kid:

Stone Manor Country Club, Maryland Wedding Photography: Lenea & Mike get married

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Having met Lenea at Heather & Chase’s wedding last year, I was so happy she loved my work and hired me. They chose the Stone Manor, which I have never been to, but fell in love with instantly. I could honestly spend another day shooting there–the options are limitless and the staff is incredibly nice and welcoming.

Lenea and Mike are a match made in heaven. They share their love of the sciences (both are chemists), have a special sweetness toward each other, and Lenea more than makes up for Mike being slight camera weary. I loved that Lenea was ready to shine on her wedding day. She looked stunning, wore a beautiful dress with a gorgeous and timelessly perfect corset below.

Here’s their sneak peek:

Headshots? I do that too!

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Christine is a wonderfully beautiful woman, whose wedding I shot not so long ago.  She, too, has her own photography business (www.christinemeulemans.com) and needed some head shots for sites and marketing.  I was very happy to do it, even though it’s out of my normal workflow.  (I won’t do the standard corporate headshots–there are plenty of studios that do it and come right to your door.)

Christine came to my house, and we headed outside.   My kids headed up to the vacant property behind us, so they “helped” with the session.  pppffttt….

Trash The Dress–Kelly and Tom Rock on

Monday, May 17th, 2010

Kelly and Tom were married *almost* a year ago.  And sadly, I couldn’t shoot their wedding, but I could give them a really, really fun afternoon and some fabulous photos a la Trash The Dress.

They left the Explorer at home and brought Tom’s baby–his Challenger.  How could you not do a little White Snake with that. : )

But we didn’t stop with the Challenger, we explored their sweeter side.

Family Portraits at the National Cathedral–Go Penny Go!

Monday, May 10th, 2010

Oh… so much cuteness. I’ve gotten to know Penny pretty well over the past year. When we first met in early 2009, she was so small, and her parents were so new. Now she is a walking, babbling, little angel with a mind all her own.

We first played in the Bishop’s Garden, then rolled into the Cathedral, which was packed with bus tours. We scouted out the 7th floor observation area to find a little privacy for our family.
