Washington DC Family Portraits: Happy December!!!

Every year I am under a lot of pressure to come with a memorable holiday card.  Every year I am told “I can’t wait to get your card!  It always my favorite.”  The pressure!   Three years ago I caught Bella choking Lisee as they lounged in their best holiday attire.  Two years ago I had the perfect very close-up portrait that showed them exactly they are.  Bella looking all sparkly-eyed and sassy.  Lisee looking like she had better things to do.  And last year I was totally stumped, and then it snowed.  My lightguy (husband) held the lights as we got a perfect picture of the girls in the snow.  This year I decided on our own version of American Gothic, which didn’t work out.  It was FREEZING, my lights kept blowing over (broke an umbrella), and the kids were not happy with it.  After 10 frames, I headed inside to thing of something new.  And I finally sent my card in for printing today.  It is pretty priceless–the kids love it.  I’ll post it after the holidays.

But here is our outtake from American Gothic (OK, but not good enough):

Abby & Josh called me excited for a maternity session.  They had to come out my way since they are under construction, and the day was perfect for a little bit of outdoor shooting (and some indoor).  They are absolutely adorable together and I can tell are going to make beautiful, loving parents.  It’s written all over them–their happy faces, their sweet demeanor and loving gentleness with each other.

Oh Sophie.  Seriously.  Could you be any cuter?  I met Sophie as a newborn, then at six months old, and now we rounding it out at just over a year.  Dan and May are so in love with their happy little muffin.  I am too–she is really, really sweet!

Dan and May are planning on making an album of the sessions, which I am excited to get started on.  It will be so, so good!
