Christmas Deadline Reminder! | Northern Virginia Photographer

I hope you all have had a wonderful start to the holiday season! I just wanted to remind everyone that ALL orders for the remainder of 2009 are due this Saturday, Dec. 5th! Canvas's & prints make great gifts if you're looking for something special for your husband, wife or grandparents! Also, I am no longer taking any sessions for the rest of this year and January is also booked. I am now taking clients for February and beyond so get in touch and get on the list if you are interested in spring pictures! April is already almost gone!
And, because I can't go without posting some sort of photo here are a few pictures of my little cutie-pies from our recent trip to Boston! If you've never been it is a great place to visit!

Baby Girl "H" turns 1! | Washington, DC Family Photographer

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends and hopefully some relaxation!
Today I FINALLY got to catch up with this sweet family and their precious little girl who has just turned one. We were originally supposed to meet on Monday but the weather just wouldn't cooperate until today. Last time I saw "H" she was just 6 months old and nearly bald! Now, she has some beautiful golden blonde hair and is still flashing those big blue eyes. It was COLD today but she's a tough cookie and hung in there as we walked around the Episcopal High School, which has a beautiful campus! Thanks "E" family for coming back to visit me! It was so great seeing you all again!

These next 2 are my faves! I say, if you're having a cold weather session then just go with it and pull out those cute hats and fluffy coats! You can always wear cute outfits in the summer, just have some fun with accessories in the winter!

Until next time!

Kevin & Emily: Engagement Session | Northern Virginia Wedding Photographer

This weekend I met up with Emily & Kevin at Walney Park in Chantilly, Virginia to do their engagement photos. From the moment I met these two I really felt like we clicked and this session just proved it! We had a great time walking through the park, where they actually got engaged last February! They have been together for a long time and are just so perfect for each other! I know that they are just dying for the big day to get here & I am so looking forward to their June wedding as well! Thanks you two for being such good sports and laughing at my cheesy jokes all afternoon!

I, of course, made them reenact their engagement!

I just loved this pond full of lilly pads! So.... "The Notebook". All we needed was a row boat!

Kevin & Emily, we'll see you again in June!

Baby Girl "S": 9 months old | Maryland Baby Photographer

This weekend I got to visit one of my baby club babies again! I love seeing how much they grow and change each time I visit. "S" gets more adorable every time I see her and luckily she wasn't crawling quite yet so this was another easy session for me!
Since we've done all of the sessions in their home I wanted to find somewhere new to take the photos! I hate to get into a rut and try my best to challenge myself every time I meet with a family, especially families I see multiple times. So, since they just remodeled their bathroom we decided to venture in there for some fun pictures and I just love how they came out! We also recreated some of the pictures we did when mom was pregnant which was also fun to do. So, enjoy this second to last session of this sweet, little cutie! This family makes me look so good every time! They are just so photogenic, I love it!

Getting ready for a little bath! The first one by herself in the big tub!
I love a cuddly, post bath baby all wrapped up in a big fluffy towel!
Don't you just love this bathroom?
Acting all coy...
This is one we recreated from the maternity and newborn session...

One of my favorites!
Another recreation!

And of course we had to memorialize her first Halloween! Cutest little bee I've ever seen!
Until next time!

Friends! | Alexandria, VA Family Photographer

I always feel so honored when my friends trust me with photographing their families and I was so excited to meet with some of our good friends, Colleen, Jeff & their girls yesterday at Fort Ward Park. Their oldest daughter is one of my daughters best friends and their youngest was born just weeks before my youngest. In fact, I ended up going into the hospital the very same day I went to visit their newest addition and I texted Colleen from delivery to tell her I might be joining her! Fortunately, my little one decided to wait a few more weeks. One more fun fact, both of our girls share the same middle names! Sorry, I won't bore you all with anymore fun facts! :-) Oh, one more, happy birthday to Colleen today!!!
Anyway, it was a beautiful evening with just a little chill in the air & we had a great time playing in leaves and running around the park! Enjoy some of the final fall pictures as the leaves are pretty much going to be gone within the next week. :-(

Check out those beautiful eyes and that sweet face!
Again, I love the sister shots!

I think this one is my favorite family shot!
How cute is she???

Have a great weekend everyone!
