DC Family Portraits: Times Two

January is proving, yet again, to not be so slow. On top of building two gorgeous wedding albums, one coffee table book, one First Year album and a wall collage, I have plenty of families wanting to get their moment to shine and am shooting my first elopement at the Inn at Little Washington this Saturday (I am so excited for this). I have a couple of new toys I purchased as well. I love my 5D Mark II and my new Cheetah (light) stand. The Cheetah Stand is the best, best, best  thing around.  Let me give that guy/girl a big hug, and a $100.  THANK YOU!  You made lighting easy.

Penelope is about to welcome a new baby to her family. Jenn looks beautiful, and shining as always.  Penelope isn’t quite two years old, and having met her when she was so, so little she is getting so, so big! She is adorable, sweet, silly and must have the darndest stickiest bottom around:

Griffin (I love this name–we would have named our boy Griffith, had we had a boy, that is) and Caroline are so much fun, and such little handfuls of energy and love. I remember my kids at this age. I was exhausted, and felt a little underwater in general. So when I showed up for our 9AM I completely related to the kids in their jammies with runny noses, and Griffin just in the mood for some cartoons (photographer schmofographer). I remember it so well!

But these types of sessions work out beautifully. It gives me a little time to take the kids to their rooms and play, very relaxed, while the parents catch up. And it’s always nice to have another person in the house keeping the kids busy and giggling:

“Hey Griff. Really, the photographer isn’t so bad. You don’t need to hide under the bed!”
