Magic Bugs

I read the first line of Beth’s email last summer and was ecstatic…”expecting baby #2″…YES!  Only to have my heart skip a beat while reading the next line…”will be born in London”… Wait.  What?  No! Before you think me too possessive of my longtime clients (I am, I totally am), here is one of my…

Breakfast at Charlie’s

The story I’m told is that twenty minutes before my scheduled arrival, Dan handed Erin the baby and told her he was headed up for a shower.  Erin handed the baby back and said, “No, you’re not….” The plan to take pictures over pancake breakfast as Archie approached six months of age was made far…

More soon. (And deep thoughts on Game of Thrones.)

Hello there, patient readers, clients and friends! I know its been awhile.  There’s  a lot to share picture-wise, I’ve been an awfully busy girl.  The delay, then?  I’ve been spending my time under the hood, rebuilding the engine so that the instruments of my one-woman-band are equipped to play to the beat of my own…

bunnies and blossoms

Hippity, hoppity, Easter’s on its way… Its our first Easter as residents, rather than guests, of the DC area.  Like every year there will be hyacinth on the dining room table and the garlic in the fresh Polish sausage will overwhelm more delicate aromas coming from my kitchen.  Some things will be the same as they…

seasons change

Over the past week my son and I have both slipped on the ice out front and splashed in the creek out back, and so it goes when the outdoor temps toggle between 20 and 70 degrees on any given day.  As long as we’re in the thick of seasonal confusion, I might as well…

Welcome, Baby Archie

To A:  Welcome!!!!  We’re so happy you are here.  We need you, buddy. To B:  We miss you.  All the time.  Always. To C:  Congrats, big guy!  We’re so excited that you are a big brother so you can teach him everything you know…. like how to booty shake. To D&E, our best friends:  You…

From Libby Hill Park to Cherry Hill Park

Shortly after our arrival in Falls Church Fiver asked me something along the lines of, “Do you know what’s good about moving?”  I must have been playing Tetris with the boxes in the closet because I remember my response  verbatim. “No, son, I really don’t. Please tell me.”  He told me that you get to…

The fall season began in a special place…

The lack of recent posts combined with mighty cold weather might suggest hibernation on my part but life has been anything but sleepy.  The busiest fall season to date, a new home, happy holiday madness and winter weather have kept things interesting.  Strange as it seems to share photos dating back to autumn while watching…

Welcome home

When I first met Dina, the world was a simpler place.  That’s actually not true, we were just living simpler lives.  We were college students at a prestigious university and our job was to study hard.   When four years came to a close and she made the decision to study medicine through the Army…

XOXO

So the goal of the shoot was to get images for Anna and Ella’s birth announcement, my first photo shoot with twins!  I was terribly excited the day before the shoot and poured through Google for ideas, is there a “right” way to approach cuteness times two?  Could this double dose of adorable cause a…

Meg & Bill

We share some common loves with Meg and Bill: a love of dogs, microbrews, family tradition, fall, a little girl named Zyda, temperamental old houses and the lovely Richmond neighborhood of Church Hill.  Let’s just say we’ve been looking forward to this one. Meg and Bill were married in Meg’s family parish of St. Paul’s…

relation/ships

Over the summer my family boarded a ship, DC’s own Odyssey to be exact, for a belated celebration of Pop Pop’s birthday.  We gathered at the bow for a family photo op and while we did get a couple of the obligatory “line everyone up like milk bottles” poses courtesy of a fellow tourist, the…
