Washington DC Family Photography – Brennan and Kiana

It had been a little over 2 years since Brennan and Kiana’s last photo shoot and boy had they grown up!  I had so much fun catching up with them and capturing this stage of their lives.  Kiana is sweet and sassy, and Brennan has a cool confidence.   We had a great time incorporating their personalities and some of their posing ideas into the session.

Old Town Alexandria Engagement Pictures – Theresa and Chris

These college sweethearts are getting married at River Farm this fall.  I had a great time capturing their sweet and playful relationship during their engagement portrait session.  We started in Old Town Alexandria and ended up in Washington. DC.  I’m enjoying getting to Theresa and Chris and count it a privilege to be invited into this joyful season of their lives.  I hope the memories I capture will bring them happiness every time they look at the pictures.

Old Town Alexandria Photographer – Jacob and Noah

Today I’m going to tell a little story about what it’s like to photograph a toddler and more than one child.  I know Jacob and Noah’s parents will enjoy this too since they experienced the same thing.:)

Here is Jacob, he’s 7. And if you’ve followed my blog for long you’ve seen him grow up as I’ve photographed him from birth.  (I’ve known his parents for 15 years.) Even as a toddler Jacob was easy to photograph.

Here’s Noah, Jacob’s 15 month old and very busy baby brother.  Isn’t he cute?

And here’s what happens when you try to put them in a picture together:

Because this stick has people to see and places to go and takes Noah with it!

Finally a smile!

But only because he was poking the stick at the camera!  Which he thinks is quite amusing.

I think this counts as two children smiling in the same picture…

Just one more smile, Noah. Please? We’ve tried every song, dance, game, naked squeaky chicken, and bubble blowing fish in our bag of tricks. Everyone that walks by thinks we’re crazy.  But I got it!

Belmont Country Club Wedding Photographer – Congratulations Tamara and Brian!

Tamara and Brian had a picture perfect wedding day at Belmont Country Club.  Belmont is such a beautiful wedding venue and Tamara added plenty of personal touches accented in classic navy and vibrant pink colors to make the day extra special. But the lasting memories are the loving support of so many family and friends that came to celebrate their marriage.  What an amazing group of friends and family!

Tamara said the next day that their wedding day was straight out of a fairy tale.  May these pictures remind them of exactly how they felt every moment of their magical day. Congratulations Tamara and Brian, it’s been a joy to capture your love!

You can see even more of their pictures here on their slideshow or on Facebook.
