Samara turns four!

One of my favorite things about family photography is being witness to kids growing up. I first worked with Samara and her mom in 2009, and have since done four sessions with her. I’ve blogged about this before, but it never ceases to amaze me to watch these babies become kids with opinions and developing personalities. I asked Sam’s mom to stand with her…

Happy Summer!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend celebrating the 4th of July. My husband, brother and I went down to North Carolina to spend the weekend with my family. Two days of sun, great food, and great conversation does a person right. And watching the fireworks with one of my closest friends, since we met at age 7, well, it was just an…

Photography

This morning I was at the offices of the American Association of University Women, with whom I’ve worked for a few years. But today was different. Instead of the usual headshots and special events I’ve done at the office, this week is their national conference. And for a portion of it, we toured their offices. I’ve walked these halls many times before, but never…

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…

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!

January Darlings

Hi all! I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to 2011. We’ve welcomed the new year with plenty of newborn, maternity and special event sessions. I thought we’d open the 2011 blogging season with some cuties. Mave is the newest addition to one of my family clients that has been with us since the very beginning. She’s such a precious little girl, and…

The Rainy Fall!

We’ve been so busy around here…neglecting to put up some of the great, fun, family shots we’ve gotten this fall!Here are a few favs –Rock Creek Park (my favorite part of my running path) also makes for a really lush background. We had already done little Adeline’s infant session in studio, so being outside in the fall leaves with her big brother Aiden made…

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…
