In May I had the privilege to photograph my friend Juliet and her beautiful family. We met in downtown Clifton on a grey Sunday morning – it was supposed to pour down rain that day, but we managed to sneak in a couple hours of wandering and play with the two little ones. I’ve discovered that I absolutely love photographing families, capturing special moments in time that can be cherished and remembered as children grow. I’ll never forget this magical morning, watching sisters play and their parents, who admire the girls that they love so much.
This time of year always reminds me of the importance of family, so I wanted to share some portraits of a family that is very near and dear to my heart. These were taken about a month after Orson was born, and he has grown even more since then! He is incredibly lucky to have such amazing parents, and they are just as lucky to have him. So much love for the Knox family.
Portraits with Maggie
Maggie is the founder of a financial coaching company and needed some fresh portraits for her business, so a couple weekends ago we would have been seen crisscrossing through Del Ray finding micro jungles and gardens for backdrops. It was a hot July day, so we started our adventure with coffee and tea from Swings and then I proceeded to put Maggie in flowers for the rest of the morning. And I’m so grateful that she did… take a look at her beautiful portraits for yourself!
My dear friend Michelle is in the middle of redesigning her website for Bloomology Co., and was in need of some refreshed brand photos so I naturally signed right up! I have been wanting to dig deeper into my photography skills and try out some portrait ideas, so our joint effort was the perfect thing to get our creative juices flowing. We spent an afternoon at the Botanic Garden in DC, which was the absolute perfect location for some natural mid-morning portraits. See for yourself, and be sure to check back to Michelle’s website to see the new look!
Copp Family Portrait Session
I was so fortunate to take some portraits of the Copp family a couple weekends ago, on a gorgeous November afternoon at Green Hill Winery. The venue was absolutely beautiful and we picked the perfect day to catch Virginia’s fall foliage in its prime! This family is full of warmth, silliness, and fun, which was such a pleasure to photograph.
