I really looked forward to meeting this little guy. I’ve known his mom for over 10 years… in fact, we were high school cheerleaders together in Texas!  She was someone I always looked up to and admired, and she’s still that impressive woman today.

It was fun to reconnect with her up here and meet her husband and 1 year old son. He’s precious and reminds me so much of his sweet mom.

It was such a special time. Loved seeing you again! Enjoy!

This sweet 8 month old is happy, and we know it!  At a typical session, I will click my shutter about 300 times.  Yesterday, as we wandered through Brookside Gardens, chatting and posing and enjoying the beautiful gardens, I snapped 500 images of this happy girl!  I didn’t know it at the time, she just made it so fun for me to take her picture.  What a joy!

As I told her parents, I love my job.  I love meeting such interesting and kind people, singing silly songs to make babies smile, and sharing beautiful images of their loved ones with them.  Enjoy these sweet images of this wonderful family.

April 13, 2012 35 Weeks Pregnant

This week I’m celebrating 35 weeks of pregnancy.  We’ll be meeting our little baby shortly!

We’ve had a fun family day with my husband home (he takes Fridays off).  So as our 2nd daughter was waking up from a nap, my husband grabbed my camera and took these.  They will be some of the first photos in our new baby’s album.  Getting excited!

Taking this picture, editing this picture, and enjoying some strawberries and sun today make me excited for summer!

I’m loving this warmer weather.

I joined my good friends in their beautiful backyard on a perfect night last week.  The sisters played and hugged and twirled until the sun went down.  I then enjoyed a delicious s’mores bar with the family.  The girls ran up to bed, and I stayed until after dark talking with my friends.

I love this family and am so pleased to get to capture them and their unique beauties another time.  I had so much fun!

You might recognize these beautiful sisters.  For Christmas, I helped them put together a card for them to send to their relatives all across the globe.  This Spring, their mom has another fun project in mind.  She wants to display some photo canvases of her daughters in their home, and of course I am happy to help!  I LOVE a few large impact photos in a room.  It’s so clean, fresh, and leaves a huge impact.

While taking their portraits at Brookside Gardens a few days ago (have you been there?  have you seen their tulips?  AMAZING), we also had some time to play.  As always, it was my pleasure to spend time with these loving sisters.

Here’s a peek. . . there’s many more to sift through for our final product .. .

When his mom told me he was on the move, she wasn’t kidding!  This little guy has 1 speed, and it’s FAST!  It was fun playing with him yesterday.  I loved watching him move, explore, laugh at the dogs, and give big smiles as his parents tried to catch him.  (Tell him to run one way, he laughs, and runs the other!)  He was on an adventure, and we had the pleasure of enjoying it with him.

I had a great time meeting you all.  Enjoy!

Whether it be summer, spring, winter, or fall, birthdays are a great time to update your family portraits.  And spring blooms provide such an excellent setting.

I met up with these friends yesterday morning on the Landon campus in Bethesda as we celebrated all 5 of their birthdays.  All have spring time birthdays!  It was a quiet and beautiful setting.  The clouds even parted to give us some warm sunshine for a bit.

I’ve enjoyed knowing this family for the past year.  I met them when this little man was born. I took his photos then, but at that time, this blog didn’t exist yet.  (Some are included in my baby gallery though!)  Then, I caught him again last summer as we explored Glen Echo (see here), and now that he’s one, he’s up and (almost!) running.  His big sisters are growing up to be darling little ladies, and together they make a perfect crew.

Thanks to you all for another beautiful photo session together!  Enjoy!
