The Windy Mini Session – April 4, Part 1

Wow! This morning we braved wind that actually made me wonder for a split moment if we were going to lose anyone into the Potomac. The coast guard were riding back and forth all morning long, I am sure for that reason. But the kids were fantastic, and they had a lot of fun despite the cold and wind. Thanks to all the parents…

Mini Sessions – Day 2, Part 2

One of the things that I have gotten away from on this blog is to talk about why I like the images that I post up here. This is the second post from day two of our Cherry Blossom Mini Sessions, which were held on Sunday down at the Tidal Basin. It rained/drizzled/ (in guatemala, they call drizzle chipi-chipi – which i think is…

Mini Sessions – Day 2, Part 1

Despite a consistent drizzle, our Mini Sessions on Sunday, March 29th were a total blast. As usual, the kids brought their own spark to the session, and you parents were great at staying relaxed and easy going as the beautiful white Easter dresses and party shoes got covered in mud. yikes. The obvious upside being that with all that mud around, barely a bribe…

Thanks to the rains yesterday, we had gorgeous morning light for our first Mini Session this morning! Such fun and adventurous personalities showed up and shone for the camera.

Giggles, pouts and reconciliations

I had a great shoot yesterday to ring in this new spring weather. Headed down to the waterfront in Old Town, Alexandria, with family Melody, Kyle, Aya and big sister Maddie. We had a blast enjoying the 70 degree weather and sunshine, after being socked (and i say that relatively…) with 4 inches of snow on Tuesday. These guys were so much fun and…

Family Portraits in 09 – Samara the Porcelin Doll

Happy New Year! Our tree has just come down, the ornaments put away, and the last of our holiday visitors have gone home to begin their 2009. Here in the world of Stacey Vaeth Photography, I’m putting into practice some great techniques I learned while training with the crew at DLWS and master shooter Joe McNally as well as getting geared up for a…

Infant Toes

How you parents out there get anything done during the day is beyond me. With these little feet and fingers and cheeks to ooh and ahh at, I would be completely useless if I had one of my own. I had a very full day today, shooting little Aiden this morning, followed by a few client meetings to get everyone’s holiday print orders in….

I couldn’t stop giggling behind the lens, those shoes are just so cute. Arlo, on the other hand, was clearly not having nearly as much fun as his parents and I were. It was a blast shooting at…
