Let the Sun Shine In

As we come upon the fall – so rapidly – here are some of the faces I have met over the last week. Some of secrets told.. Of brotherhood shared… Of the moments before… Of impending adolescence… Of moments with family…spread far and wide… Of the wide-eyed wonderment of youth… and of a fall…blossoming with new beginnings… see you on the 24th at our…

Little Pumpkins

Say hello to my cover baby for this season…a joyful shot to open up my website. This little Gillian is such a cutie, and she was into these pumpkins! It has been a while since I uploaded my images from a shoot and was shocked at what popped onto the screen. Remember with film, when you just had a feeling of what your pictures…

Fall Flowers

The rain held off this morning, and we got these beautiful overcast skies and bright colors at a really fun mini session. Rachel and Russ held the session at their home, and invited over some friends who have been a part of the same parents group since their kids were just a few weeks old. Rachel has this great home in DC that provided…

Closet Caucus Struts It’s Stuff!

If you have not yet checked out Kaarin, owner of Closet Caucus…you absolutely must. I’m not kidding. I don’t say this lightly, but Kaarin offers one of the best services you never knew you needed. Have you ever watched “What Not to Wear?” and thought….”I wonder what they would say to me”? Wonder no longer. Kaarin offers a service where she comes to your…

Back to California…

In my mind, at least. While that little Daily Candy Kids post has kept me quite busy for the last few days, I still haven’t lost my post-vacation buzz…a few more images, as promised, from my recent trip to California. The sands of Marina del Ray, a few blocks from where my sister Heidi and her boyfriend, Kevin, live. I can still feel that…

Rooftop Madness

So, if you have been following me on Facebook, you know I was seeking a rooftop for a shoot. We found an ideal spot for last night, thanks to you know who (we sort of snuck up there and then snuck over a guardrail, so i’ll keep my accomplice anonymous).We were looking for an unobstructed view of the sky, and got somewhat close. However,…

Cora and Alden

I had the pleasure of working with close friend and PR guru Amber Pfau (owner of Amber Pfau Communications) this afternoon. The focus were her beautiful children, as though there could be any other focus with them around. I have to say, as I was shooting these, I thought back to how many times I look at pictures of me with my brother and…

Mini Sessions are Back!

Join us for our ever popular Mini Sessions, July 11th at Cabin John Park in MD, and July 12th at Turtle Park, DC. Shoot us a note to reserve one of the last few slots available on each day. Last weekend we had great weather and great moods out at our Montrose Park mini sessions – a few of my fav’s are below –…

Perry’s…mmmmmmmm

I have had a bunch of great shoots this week, which I will continue to share with you over the next few days. First off, yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting at my favorite restaurant in Adams Morgan. Perry’s restaurant is on the corner of 18th and Columbia, with a fantastic rooftop and quite literally, amazing food. Chef Jose Picazo and owner Saied…

Three Generations…

I had a fun shoot this weekend, documenting a family trait that has been passed down through three generations, at least. Kerri contacted me because she said her son, husband, and father-in-law all have the same hands, and it was something that they wanted to capture… Try telling a two year old why looking into the camera is important for family history. Now try…
