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!

It’s amazing how much kids grow year to year.  Teeth fall out and smiles change.  Claire is one beautiful girl and I’ve always loved her more serious, intense gazes.  We had a beautiful fall day in Alexandria, VA to update their family photos and document how much Claire has grown in pictures.  I look forward to seeing you all next time!

Dallas Arboretum Family Pictures by a Washington DC photographer

It was time to update the family photos, but a sudden move to Dallas, TX meant a change of plans and a search for a new photographer they thought.  It just so happened I had a trip to Texas planned a few weeks later and we were able to meet up at the gorgeous Dallas Arboretum.  I couldn’t believe how much these handsome boys had grown!  It was fun to catch up in a new place and update the family pictures.  And I so appreciate clients who love my work across the miles!
