Have you ever photographed in a freezing wind tunnel? Well, after this session, I can accurately say that I have. I am ENDLESSLY impressed with this couple for being such troopers during this session despite the weather. Rachel and Charles rarely lost their smiles even when the temperatures randomly dipped to the 30s! Spring can […]

So often in life, we don’t slow down to really appreciate the every day, the usual, the mundane. So much goes uncaptured. That said, I wanted to take 30 minutes on moving day to memorialize our first day in our new home in Alexandria, Virginia.

What a bombshell couple these two are!! Diane is actually Ben’s best friend’s little sister! I have known the Mechners since Ben and I started dating so this was a blast to finally meet Diane and Cam in person! These two met at Robinson (when they were 10 years old!) and started dating in their high school years. Cam actually asked her to homecoming by decorating her mininvan in the Robinson parking lot. They then went to college across the country from one another, him at USC and her at UVA, but they managed to make the distance work. Like a true romantic, Cam proposed to Diane in the same parking lot in the same manner he asked her to homecoming all those years ago: he decorated her car with a very different question- ‘Will you marry me?’

Don’t you think this looks like an Anthropologie add?! I don’t often shoot families but I just can’t say no to Adleigh and Chace! They are the perfect clients. They are super in love and have the easiest/most smiley little girl on the planet. I am heartbroken that these two moved to Iowa right after this session. This little family wanted one last photo session in their favorite spot overlooking the city. Adleigh decided to pack a little picnic which was the perfect way to enjoy the grassy spot near the Iwo Jima memorial.

Now, it’s not often I do maternity sessions, but when my sister-in-law is expecting, I can’t say no! Jenni is my sister by marriage but she would totally be my sister by choice. Not only did we both marry Tuben men but we also have the same taste in food, weddings and are crazy cat ladies together! We got to know each other during her wedding planning process a few years back. Their initial plan was to tie the knot on the very property we took these photos on! Since the rain changed their plans, we headed out to her grandmother’s property in Marshall, Virginia to take the portraits Jenni always wanted!
