Summer Days

With all of this endless rain this spring, it’s surprising that we got a blink of sunshine long enough to get these newborn announcement photos. What a gorgeous evening and even more beautiful family!

The moments between

(yes. it’s been two years since I posted a blog post). It occurred to me as I was editing wedding photos for Courtney and Mike that you all don’t have the opportunity to see what I see. The back end of this work. In this digital age where we can click,click,click when waiting for the moment (a blessing and a curse), editing photos is…

Working with Friends

From some recent shoots with friends and family…

Spring is here!

Finally….what a long, hard fought winter we’ve had. Had a great session in Rock Creek with this lovely little (4 kids!) family. They were so spirited and full of laughs – it was a great morning!

A Welcome Home Shoot

Welcome home to Sydney, just two weeks old. And welcome home to me. This is my first Stacey Vaeth Photography shoot this month, as I took a bit of a break to focus on a personal project. A confession: Newborn sessions are not typically my favorite shoots. I feel a combination of trepidation and inadequacy when doing a newborn session, because of the plethora…

Best Laid Plans

  I had all sorts of wonderful intentions of putting together a year-end photo gallery, documenting the wonderful families, companies and couples whom I have had the pleasure of working with throughout 2013. It remains on my to-do list, where it’s been residing for months. While this lack of presence on this blog and on Facebook ironically convey that I’ve been twiddling my thumbs…

Sometimes they are reluctant…

His mom had told me that they didn’t want any posed shots, which freed me up considerably to just capture this cute family as they are. As it was freezing out, we opted for the Hirshorn Museum as our unique backdrop. What a fun morning! 

Fall Family Session, Bon Air Park, Viriginia

I loved working with Lisa and her family again this year. Her girls have this amazing sister-connection that is just magic to witness. And how fun for them to now have a new baby brother! Shoots like this make me miss my family, spread all over the country!
