Just Hangin’ Out

June 28, 2009


This was my second session of the weekend, and another family of boys, making it an all-boys portrait weekend for me.   These little guys were so cute–I just couldn’t resist sharing this last one–aren’t his eyes amazing?

I had a little change of scenery this morning for this family session.   I had only been to this spot once before, and that was in the winter when the foliage looked much different.   It was interesting to see the different personalities of these brothers in action.  The older two had fun helping me with my equipment–they were great little assistants!

Six Feet

June 25, 2009




Summer is here, and I love the carefree look of barefoot kids!   These kiddos shed their Crocs and sandals for a few minutes to trek around my favorite Vienna location for some family portraits this morning.

Belly Pics in Black and White

June 23, 2009



I had a lot of fun working with these parents-to-be last night night for their maternity portrait session.  They had a lot of  ideas which challenged me to go a little outside of my normal maternity style, but I always enjoy when clients have a vision for what they want–it makes for a great collaboration.   I can’t wait to meet their little boy in a couple of weeks!

Little Dancers

June 17, 2009


We grabbed a few shots of the girls and their friend in the studio this afternoon in their tap and ballet recital costumes.   Despite the drizzly weather, the little performers were in good spirits and enjoyed posing for me.

Summer has begun

June 15, 2009

froggiesIt’s the end of an era here at my house–my oldest has finished preschool, and now we’ll soon we moving into the world of school-aged children.  I was a little sad this morning when I picked the girls up from their last day of school and gave thanks to their teachers for the wonderful job they’ve done with the kids this year.  These little froggy cupcakes were my contribution to the end of the party in my younger daughter’s class.   Another mom made some adorable cookie medalions for the kids which reminded me of the Lebkuchen versions you see in German and Austrian festivals.

Sweet Innocent Eyes

June 11, 2009




I just love babies at this age–lots of rolls,  big eyes and wide smiles.  This little guy was so in love with his mom and dad, and fascinated but every detail of the world around him.   He was so focused on his explorations it was sometimes a little hard to grab his attention.   But despite the challenges (poor little guy was cutting some teeth) I had fun getting to know this lovely family in this Celebrating Adoption session.

Three Sons

June 9, 2009


My husband and I have a little inside joke dating back to our days at William and Mary, where he said that all he needed to start up his own web business was “three sons”.  I immediately imagined three tiny versions of my husband behind computers typing away.  But he had meant “three Suns” (a type of server).  Anyway, it seems only fitting that the family of one of my husband’s colleagues with three sons was in the studio this morning.  Today we were focusing on their newest addition, and what a cutie he is!  I had to include the last one because I thought it was one of those cases where a picture tells a thousand words.  The little hand is from his middle brother…

Glowing Momma-to-be

June 8, 2009


I always enjoy maternity sessions, not only because it gives me a chance to meet moms before their newborn sessions, but also because it gives me an opportunity to get a little creative with my photography.  Tonight after trying some of my more traditional maternity poses, I broke out the heavy duty fan to try some fashion-inspired photos with the beautiful mom-to-be.

They brought the sunshine

June 7, 2009


When I woke up yesterday the ground was soaked from days of rain and the sky was filled with gloomy, dark clouds.  So things were not looking up for our afternoon session in the park.  But I think in the end the session was meant to be, because by the afternoon the clouds cleared and the sun started to dry up the ground.  We had first spoken last fall about this Celebrating Adoption session, so I was happy to finally meet the family and so glad that we ended up with perfect weather.
