A Cherry Blossom Wedding

Do you remember the hail today? The ominous skies, the intermittent rain….the everything falling in on us but locusts? My bride and groom, Cheryl and Mark, had planned a picture perfect wedding on the East Lawn of the Jefferson Memorial, timed with the peak cherry blossom blooms, for 4pm today. Yup. Right around the time that the skies were spitting, coughing and generally very…

Blossoms!

What a wild week! It’s been snowy, rainy and bright sunshine (but still freezing!) down by the Tidal Basin. But yet, the blossoms must go on! This year, it’s been so much fun seeing most of my clients for the second or third season in a row. Man, how they grow up so fast.  Here’s baby Genevieve and and her mom, on our mistiest…

Didn’t you think this would be about Cherry Blossoms?

I’m living and breathing blossoms this time of year, but have been go go go for so many weeks, that some of my favorite sessions haven’t made it onto the blog yet!

My favorite month

Check out this sweetie pie! The first time I met Dina and Mark was at my first Cherry Blossom Mini Sessions, two years ago now. Since then, they’ve become regular clients and good friends, and added to their family. Natalie is their newest addition, baby sister to Anthony. They brought her into the studio for her 6-month session, which is, incidentally, my absolute favorite…

Baby Love

I love maternity shoots. Oriana and her husband are having a little girl, and are so, so excited!When I asked Oriana about how she was feeling, with near tears in her eyes, she held onto her stomach and said “this baby girl is VERY wanted”. I’m so happy for you guys, and can’t wait to meet her!

Little Lion Noah

Kelly and Hiram came by the studio a while back for some infant shots of little Noah, their first addition to the family. What a beauty! I love what Kelly said when she arrived: “This is what his hair does. We’re not going to try to tame it!” It makes him all the sweeter with that wild mane.Congratulations you guys!  Noah’s a leo. Don’t…

Happy Summer!

This steamy summer has been full of camping, beach time, visiting with family and lots and lots of sessions. I’ve been having a blast traveling to parks to capture families and young newlyweds in this fleeting moment in their lives. It’s been great fun, and as always, a true blessing. Here are a few favs from a session a few weeks back. more soon!svg

Baby Number Two!

I have had the great pleasure of working with Dina and Mark, and their four year old, Anthony, three times now. It’s been so much fun to see Anthony grow into such a cute kid, and have lots of fun with these guys each time. They came to me yesterday for a session, as they are expecting baby number two! A little sister for…
