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…

Love and Light

Folks often ask if we still shoot weddings.  The answer is yes, yes we do.  If a couple really, really likes us that is…  New locations and life priorities have yanked us out of the gravitational pull of advertising, networking, and SEOing our site into relevance where weddings are concerned, leaving us afloat until a…

Last glance at summer

The insects are still performing “Summer’s Greatest Hits!” from the tall grass outside our sliding door but the pool is covered and school has started and the days grow shorter.  I need one last look at the green, summer grass before it is silenced by a thick coat of autumn leaves. I’m also enjoying the…

Letting Go

Letting go doesn’t always mean saying good-bye.  Sometimes it means saying hello to something hard but also new…

Wonderful

Back when Jen and Tim were married over five years ago now I was just pregnant enough to start worrying about who I would be as a parent.  And wouldn’t you know what wonderful, wonderful Jen had the nerve to do the day of her own wedding?  She ran up to me, hair done up…

18 shoots and counting

Its considered a job interview classic: “Where do you see yourself in five years?”  Had Amy and I asked each other that very question while she was carrying Brayden well over fiver years ago, would we have guessed that I would still be coming over on a regular basis, camera slung over my shoulder and…

Homeward bound…

Well there’s no starting where I left off!  So instead I will begin where I am and fill in the details of where I’ve been when I can.  Writing seems awkward and new right now and I expect that it will for awhile, I’ve been away from it so long. The road has taken us…
