Cherry Blossoms!

Just some of your standard DC springtime fun! What a hard-fought winter…we had some glorious warm days on the Tidal Basin to help bring on the spring. And for the first time in 6 Cherry Blossom seasons, I actually took one morning and walked the Tidal Basin to enjoy the blossoms myself. It was a great series of days, so great to see my…

Cherry Blossoms at Dawn

Every year I muster up the courage to do the blossoms…the unpredictable weather, the traffic, the parking….and every year, once I get rolling on them, it’s totally worth it. What a gorgeous way to greet the morning. First off, this is my 2014 take on the tidal basin at dawn:

Some More Blossoms

Some cherry blossom pics that lost their way in the mad rush of the spring. What a fantastic group of kids I had this year. We had so much fun at the Tidal Basin. It was comparatively low-key, partially because no one was freezing this year! Just springtime fun in the park. A almost cannot believe that Cullen is this big.  I was shooting his sister…

Wedding Style at the Cherry Blossoms

I met Tom and Rebecca on their honeymoon. My husband and I were taking a much needed vacation to the beach, and Toma and Rebecca were honeymooning at the same resort in Antigua, West Indies, after hosting a rocking destination wedding in Mexico. We quickly clicked, and discovered that we all lived in the DC metro area. They asked me to do a DC…

Cherry Blossoms and Balloons, oh my!

Sima and Richard were so much fun to work with! Engaged for just a while, and dating for fewer than two years, they were so at ease with each other. It’s easy to see how they fit together, easy going and fun-loving, both of them. Richard proposed with a balloon as his prop, so their wedding theme will definitely be incorporating balloons. I love…

Cherry Blossoms – Day 1, Part 2

Yesterday, I awoke to pouring down rain and crackling thunder. It wasn’t forecasted, so I hopped into the car at 6am, hoping that it would clear before our scheduled Cherry Blossom Mini Sessions. After some calls with my early morning clients, we decided to all go down, park and wait it out. Which we did, and which worked out beautifully. Very few tourists (comparatively…

Cherry Blossoms – Day 1, Part 1

It all started with a crackling, lightning filled sky….and broke open to a gorgeous morning. Off to an engagement session, but a quick post of my first frame out of the camera this morning. This is out of the camera, no post-production: Followed by beautiful Cardin, whom I’ve been photographing since she was very little….this is the first year she didn’t have to wear…

Springtime Mini Sessions, so Soon!

Silly me! I spoke too soon…. We’ve been waiting over here to see how this crazy winter would shape up, and how it would impact the Cherry Blossom season. I was hoping to open registration today for the Cherry Blossom and Springtime Mini Sessions. However….the National Park Service is going to predict the peak cherry blooms on March 1st, so it makes the most…

The Roundup

I’m finally here in North Carolina, with my husband’s family, preparing for Christmas by shopping, resting and generally hanging out. My mother-in-law is a chef, and my husband and his family is from Colombia, so we’re enjoying the most amazing food, as usual. Tamales, shrimp and scallops a la veracruzana, ajiaco…. just the best. Everyone left for a movie just now, and I finally…
