Georgetown DC Modern Childrens Portraits: What a fun place

Friday, April 29th, 2011

A local playgroup co-op hired me to come in and play for 3 days worth of photos, These little 1 to 3 year olds reminded just how special that time in their life and how unique every child is. They were priceless, and I am so glad I had the opportunity to do it:

This is your family, however you define it.  You.  Him.  Her.  Them.  Fluffy.  Bowser.

Washington DC Family Portraits: Happy December!!!

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

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!

Metro DC Family Portraits: Crazy X Four

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Since I starting booking my fall shoot schedule in January this year, I know it would be a busy fall for me. I am so grateful to have fun clients, and am sorry to refer on so many people this time of year.

I need to catch up on my week’s shoots before I head to the Foundation Conference next week (which I am so looking forward to–I am ready to get some inspiration from some of the most-talented, hardest working photographers in the industry).  I have three more shoots before I leave, and a wedding when I get back.  NOVEMBER!!!

Here are my four for the week:

Meet Lucas, and his brother Mason.  When we moved to VA 6 years ago, Leslie was one of the first families I met.  Lucas and my daughter became fast friends, and Bella had her first marriage proposal, left on our answering machine, from Lucas.  She called back to say OK.   Now they are big kids, and can’t believe they actually did that.

These boys are the most naturally athletic kids I have ever seen.  Well, except for rollerblading.  It looks like they may need to work on that. : )  Love these kids:

Natalie, Caroline and their new brother Ryan showed me a good time around their new home. Natalie is an absolute crack-up, camera hog, and fun kid. Caroline is a sweet kid trying to catch a little light from her big sister–I’m so glad a I had few minute with her and her “Man”–her little lovey. And Ryan is delicious at 1 month old. Exactly.

Oh Daniel…. What a sweetheart. He has so many smiles, and happiness. We played in and around their home, then headed to the Masonic Temple in Alexandria.  It’s just beautiful.  I was so glad to meet this family–they are really wonderful!

Declan has just been blessed with a baby sister Cordelia. I met Declan when he was just a wee thing, and now he is well into his twos, and full of fun and goofs. His sister, well, she just couldn’t be any sweeter and I was so glad to pop into Georgetown to have a peek.  Great, great family…

Northern Virginia Weddings and Portraits: 10-10-10

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Now that’s a date not seen very often! It’s a perfect wedding anniversary (who can forget that), and the perfect day for a wedding in the DC area. The weather was unbelievable.

I happily met Erin and Don for their utterly charming and quaint affair at the perfectly situated Great Falls home of Leigh and Jon. Erin and Don have a special sweetness in their relationship and two families that love them immensely. It’s a happily ever after that dreams are made of:

This is the fourth time I’ve met up with these kids, and I think they are getting to be more fun every time. They are adorable, sweet, and very fun to be around. I LOVE the natural hugs/tackles the kids give. Makes me want to jump right in:

I *love* this family. Love. And I just can’t get over how wrong (by wrong, I mean right) Kelly looks so close to her due date. The best part of this shower was getting the very special Spaid laugh in stereo. Rock on Kelly!
