Newborn Posed Photos Washington, DC – Thomas

It’s always an honor to photograph what I think I’ll call my “wedding babies”.  It’s a joy, not only to photograph a wedding, but to watch the family grow, in this case by two adorable boys.  They were fairly similar to photograph (neither would sleep on their tummies) so it will be interesting to see if their temperaments are similar.  Michael has twinkly eyes and a big smile and is already showing signs of being an attentive big brother.  These boys are going to have a ball growing up together so close in age.  I’m sure they’ll be the best of buddies!

Jacksonville Beach Kids Photos – Lenox, Lincoln and London

London turn 4 in July and the boys are almost 8 and 10 (how did that happen??), and taking pictures is finally starting to be fun!  It was almost easy.  So weird.  It was still hard to get real smiles from all three at the same time, but for the most part they cooperated.  And added some of their own pose ideas.:) Beach pictures 2016 – done!

It was an incredibly windy evening (the over-gelling seemed to hold for Lenox) in August, but nothing compared to Hurricane Matthew that washed these dunes away in October.

Jacksonville, FL Family Photo – Mason

Almost 9 month old Mason is a dream client.  He was napping when they arrived in the garden, woke up and was ready to smile in minutes.  What a happy little guy!  Though now that he’s a speedy crawler it was a bit of a challenge to keep him still.  He wanted to be on the move!  It was so much fun to catch up with him, as he’s changed just a tad since he was a newborn baby!

River Farm Wedding – Congratulations Sarah and Matt!

River Farm in Alexandria Virginia is a picture perfect wedding venue no matter the weather.  Now that cooler fall days are here, it’s hard to imagine summer heat.  But this was a brutally hot and humid July day.  Never mind the weather, Sarah looked gorgeous in her lace gown, and fulfilled her dream to get married under the Osage Orange tree in the River Farm garden.  The memories are what counts and this day made many wedding memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Old Town Alexandria Engagement Photos – Brette and Dan

This was such a fun engagement shoot.  The rain was threatening, but Brette and Dan really had their heart set on photos by the water.  So after spending some time by the Potomac, the sun returned and we were able to get a little color and texture in traditional Old Town Alexandria.  Dan makes Brette so happy, I love the huge smile she has on her face whenever he’s near!
