Another beautiful day at the cherry blossoms...

On Friday I got to go down to the cherry blossoms again with sweet little Anne Miller for her 2 year old pictures. If its possible the trees were even more full than they were on Tuesday! It literally feels like you are standing under a pink canopy of flowers. Here's a sneak peak of my time with this very sweet family! And stay tuned for images from a wedding I second shot with the wonderful, generous and VERY talented Susan Stripling last night!

Happy Birthday Haley!

I just wanted to say happy birthday to my baby! She turned 2 yesterday, I can't believe how fast she is growing up! I went in her room yesterday morning and I said, "Haley, what is today?" and she exclaimed, "I be 2 today!" All day long she talked about her birthday and asked for a "pink Cinderella cake" and sang happy birthday to herself. I really do love this age!
So, happy birthday Haley! If anyone knows of any way to keep them like this forever PLEASE let me know!

She, of course, got LOTS of presents and she already LOVES her Pooh, Minnie, bunny, monkey & dog. Now we've added another (softer version) of Pooh Bear, as well as Tigger, & Piglet and she of course has to sleep with them all! She also asks every night "Mommy, cover me with piglet blanket... cover me with apple blanket... and cover me with flower blanket." So, it's quite a process getting everything set up in her bed.

Scarlett & Violet...

It's cherry blossom time here in D.C. so of course we had to take advantage of this brief and BEAUTIFUL time!  I love spring in D.C.!
Luckily, it was time for my second baby club session with baby Violet, who you may remember from back in late January when she was just 2 weeks old.  Well, now she's 2 months and I hardly recognized her!  She already looks so different and is getting more adorable every day.  Her sister also just turned 2 so we took the chance to get some pictures of her as well.  She is also adorable and had all the passersby stopping to admire her and I'm sure you'll see why!  Enjoy!

My first Senior of 2008!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting my first high school senior of 2008! Rebecca was so much fun to hang out with and reminded me so much of myself at that time in my life, and she just happens to be going to my alma mater! (What a smart girl!) Anyway, we had some fun exploring Old Town Alexandria and since this girl was up for just about anything it was fun to try some new stuff. So, here are some of my faves!

Her best friend Nicola also came along so we decided to include her in some of the fun..

Happy Easter!

So, after THREE Easter egg hunts, a wonderful church service & lots of good food I am finally having a little "Easter" down time! I hope you all had a great weekend as well! Here's a peak into ours...

First we started the weekend off with Haley's very first haircut! She did a great job... although considering they turned on cartoons & gave her a sucker I don't know any kid who wouldn't have sat in a sugar induced, TV trance!

The church Easter Egg hunt on Saturday...

Easter Sunday:
Haley getting her Easter basket. She kept saying "WOW! Look at it! Look at my basket!"

Our church always has a big cross that people fill with flowers...

Easter Brunch & another Easter egg hunt at our neighbors house (at this point Haley's almost a professional!)

Happy Easter!
