Family Christmas Photos in Washington, DC

It’s been so much fun to photograph this family over the last few years!  Mom does a great job of coordinating everyone’s clothes and I loved their Christmas outfits for these photos.  And Dad did a wonderful job of getting great laughs and smiles out of the little ones for pictures showing their cute personalities.   We had an extremely dreary day, practically dark, but without any remaining rain dates, I’m so glad we were able to squeeze in these pictures. The kid’s sunny smiles sure brightened the day!

3 Generations of Family – Pictures at Green Spring Garden

I first met this family when I photographed Allison and Adam’s wedding nine and a half years ago.  Then Lindsay’s wedding a few years ago.  It was so much fun to catch up with this family of triplets to photograph 3 generations while everyone was in town.  Green Spring Garden in Fairfax is a great fall photo location and we enjoyed the late blooming flowers even at the end of a warm October.  So many special relationships with the first grandson and nephew.  And lots of fur babies!

Washington DC Family Photographer

Enjoyed meeting and photographing this family referred to me by another photography client.  Most of my new clients come that way, I love and appreciate referrals!  And I loved their outfits.  Yellow, grey and navy is a great color combination for family pictures. Don’t they look great?  And that yellow coat is too cute on this spunky little lady!  I look forward to updating pictures of this family next year!

Arlington VA Wedding Photographer – Congratulations Katie and Larkin!

What an amazing wedding day!  A Catholic ceremony in Arlington, VA, then wedding party pictures in Washington, DC, then a gorgeous terrace cocktail hour at sunset and reception in the formal ballroom at the Army Navy Country Club, Arlington, VA.  This couple has a huge group of family and friends – and I think they were all in the wedding party!  Which made for fun pictures!  But Katie was a relaxed bride and let all the bridesmaids choose any black dress, which all came together for variety in the sameness.  Katie’s lace bodice had cap sleeves and a plunging back, her favorite part.  A special part of the portrait time between the ceremony and reception was visiting the restaurant where they had their first date for a quick pictures, and they met at the church where they were married – so special!  Congratulations Katie and Larkin!
