San Francisco Baby Portraits: And so much more than that

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

Being an Auntie isn’t new, but being an Auntie to a boy AND seeing my little sister be a Mom is something wonderful. First off, we tend to produce girls. RW (Dad) produced three girls (his payback from the universe, in advance). Then the first four grandchildren were four more girls. All very lovable, and wonderful–and very girl.   And now we have a boy. The “Golden Ticket” as our older sister likes to say.

And he is something special. I completely fell apart when I landed back in VA and eventually headed for bed late late the next night. I knew I wouldn’t wake up to baby Drake and put him in the Bjorn and head into the hills for a walk. I knew I wouldn’t be stopping over for a few hours to go let my sister play.   I know he’ll be so much different when we see him in August.

Enough of that! I’m welling up all over again.

Got milk?

Great Falls Family Portraits: Times Two

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

With summer upon us, families are getting warmed up to get their kids sunkissed cheeks in some family photos. I only wished I lived closer to the beach so I could do these fun, goofy, and real sessions on the beach too.

I hadn’t seen Theo in a couple of years. He blew me away. I have never met a more gregarious, interactive and fun boy. He was absolutely charming. And his sister Madison is no longer a tween, but an engaged, beautiful young woman. She and her Mom are so sweetly in touch, and respectful. I can only hope to have that with my girls. Kudos to this family:

And then Amanda and Sabrina! I can relate so well to this family–two girls, closer in age, and so into that girl world of dressing up (ten times over), dancing, giggling, and being silly. Amanda LOVES my camera and pulled a few poses I won’t ever be able to recreate. Sabrina, much more tentative about her time in the spotlight, sweetly showed me her moves. They are so, so precious. The line of the day from Amanda, “Aren’t you done? We are supposed to go to the Tavern for brunch.” Even the best models have to eat at some point.

Alexandria Family Portraits: 10-years for John and Meghan!

Friday, June 11th, 2010

Meghan and John brought in 10 years together with the sweetest portrait session. I don’t often get asked to do anniversary sessions like this, so I relished in the newness! All five of them in and around their home.

Despite the kitties being less than cooperative models at times, there are some really fun pics. I can’t wait for them to get the rest.

Northern Virginia Family Portraits: 4 times the fun in Mclean

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Having never met any of the girls, or their parents, I had no idea what I was in store for at their home.  I knew I would meet 4 girls, ages 11 on down.   All I can say is–what a load of fun!  There was love and togetherness gushing out of their doors.  This family has something wonderful in their home.  They are all really connected.  It is charming!

In true June form, a major thunderstorm breaks on my way across town, so we started inside and then ventured outside.  I can’t wait for the family to see all of their shots!

And I tried my myself with a little bit of food photography with Treats by Erica. uh…. yum! Erica is a fabulous woman that is taking the whole home bakery business to a new level of sweet. My kids LOVED her marshallow pops, and Kev loved the bonbon, and I did my best to forget they were in the house.   I was very glad to share them with friends, and get them out of my site.   Swimsuit season is here–back off candy.  Back off.

Harrisburg Pennsylvania Wedding Photography: Jenny and Ryan get married!

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

I love these families! I have blessed enough to walk into their lives while shooting my cousin’s wedding a few years ago, and I haven’t looked back. They are all wonderful, warm, real, engaging, and most of all–a lot of fun.

Jenny and Ryan were so wonderful to work with during their entire day. They are so sweet together, and totally loved playing with their friends, me and my camera. I love, love some of their shots in and around the Capitol.

Here’s their sneak peek:

Grace United Methodist was very strict on where I could be (balcony or downstairs, but no moving, so I chose the balcony). But my badass assistant Tom Wenger got this shot from his pew with a holga lens on my old 20d. Thanks Tom!
