Baker’s Cay Key Largo Wedding Pictures – Congratulations Jamie and Kyle!

It’s such an honor to photograph the same family over the years.  Photographing both the sister’s weddings in years past, and to now the final triplet’s wedding, with Kyle and Jamie tying the knot. Such a privilege to be a witness to the wedding celebration and to capture the the joy of these two families!

As an added treat for all the guests and me, the wedding festivities were at Baker’s Cay resort in Key Largo, Florida!  It happened to rain for 6 hours, with very un-Florida like weather, but that didn’t dampen the vibe or lessen the beauty of their wedding day. And they braved the weather for a few bride and groom pictures in some very scenic spots.  The Key Largo resort property has lovely water views of the Gulf of Mexico, as well as native trees along the coast line.  The indoor spaces also have sea (and normally sunset) views, making this a beautiful destination wedding location.

So many sweet memories were made over the weekend!  Congratulations Jamie and Kyle! Many blessings to you as you start your married lives!

Jamie’s cousins outdid themselves, singing much of the toast, they rewrote popular songs to tell Jamie and Kyle’s story.  It was hilarious and sweet!

Old Town Alexandria Photographer – Almost 3!

This little guy has grown so much in 16 months since his last photo shoot. Logan has gone from a baby to a little boy!  He’s still as busy as ever and very much into cars and trucks.  We had a great time “going on an adventure” in Old Town Alexandria and he kept us moving.  We walked a lot of blocks!  But found so many pretty spots, the houses are so unique in their textures and colors.   I know his mom will treasure these pictures for years to come as he grows up right before our eyes!

He’s such a natural with posing. He’d sit down in the cutest ways.  Now, if he’d only sit still for more than half a second. 🙂

Washington, DC Newborn Photographer – David

What a sweet addition to this family of boys!  Newborn baby brother will have a blast growing up with two older brothers to keep him entertained.  David is the most pleasant baby!  He didn’t sleep much, but calmly looked around with hardly a whimper all day.  He seems to know he’s joined a busy Washington DC family and it’s best to go with the flow!
I’ve so enjoyed keeping up with this family over the years, starting as their wedding photographer. It’s been such an honor to document their family as it’s expanded and as the kids have grown.  I love seeing pictures on their walls from all their family photo sessions!  And seeing the whole family enjoy the photo albums from the wedding and the other boy’s newborn photo sessions.  Precious days that are flying by, but the memories captured in pictures always take us right back and make us smile!

Washington DC Family Photographer

What fun to see this family again!  Remember the cold, windy, but oh so sweet wedding day with mountain views last October?  Today we had the prefect summer day for family pictures in Washington, DC.  This family has blended beautifully and it was a joy to capture them all together!  Sons, daughters, siblings.  Lots of love to go around!

I so appreciate when it’s important to a mom to have regular family pictures taken – I know it takes a lot of effort – and sometimes months to find a date with busy schedules – but it’s so worth it!  And I know these pictures will become even more precious to them as the years go by.

Alexandria, VA Newborn Photographer – Jaxson

Have you ever seen anything more precious than the photos of these two brothers?  Big brother has just turned 4 and he was so gentle in holding his baby brother!  You may remember them from a May Washington DC maternity shoot.  Alex didn’t quite remember me from his newborn or toddler photo session, so it really helped that we could get reacquainted and he was excited to have me come to their home in Alexandria VA for his baby brother’s newborn photos.  Always love seeing this sweet family and am so happy they’ve added another beautiful, smily, baby boy to their family! Welcome Jaxson!

As seems to be the case so many times, after his lunch break he decided he’d stay awake for while to see what’s going on.  Makes for beautiful pictures of gorgeous eyes, but also takes hours of baby watching before we can move on to more posed pictures.  Sometimes it’s a slow process, it’s a baby led day, but it’s ALWAYS worth it for theses sweet pictures!
