It was an honor to help capture this important milestone in this boy’s life.  It has been several years since I last photographed this family and their sons have both grown up to be such polite little men.

And She’s Off

August 9, 2012

We were able to get this session in under the wire before big sis had to head back to college.  Our first attempt was a casualty of summer afternoon storms, but luckily we were able to reschedule for later in the week.   We tried out two spots right here in Vienna seeking out colorful settings for their family portraits.   I just love how the image on the staggered wall turned out–but even more fun was the one we took right afterward, where they jumped!

A Fish out of the Water

August 8, 2012

This swimmer was so fun to work with as we wandered around looking for fun spots for her portraits.   The lush greenery made for a great natural backdrop and with having such a cooperative model we luckily were able to get the session in before it got too hot.

Leaving the Nest

July 26, 2011

 

These busy teens were so refreshing to work with–excited about their shoot and super easy-going.  Their family wanted some portraits before the son heads off to college in the fall, and after a little delay due to the excessive heat this past weekend, we were finally able to make that happen.

Congratulations, Graduate!

May 22, 2011

It’s just a few weeks until graduation and today we had a lovely afternoon for a family portrait to celebrate the milestone.   I knew it they were a fun bunch when the guest of honor showed up wearing a tux shirt and plaid shorts.  Hey, we just needed a headshot, right?

For Mom’s Birthday

May 15, 2011

This mom contacted me looking for some fun family portraits to celebrate her birthday.  I won’t tell which birthday it is, but her sons are trying to give you a clue ; )  We have been trying for about a month to get this session in, and things kept coming up, so when the weather called for a 30% chance of rain, we decided to go ahead and chance it!   Well it turns out that a cloudy, misty day kept most of the other visitors inside, and we practically had the botanical gardens to ourselves.   We explored all around and everyone had a little fun along the way.

California Girl

May 2, 2011

This beautiful senior is my friend’s daughter, and I had so much fun photographing her while I was on out in California last week.  She is a talented musician and beautiful soul inside and out.   I’m such an East Coast girl–I know that orange groves are pretty common in Southern CA, but I thought it was really fun that they had the trees in their yard, and wanted to try to incorporate them into the portraits.

Class of 2011

March 29, 2011

This was the second session I’ve done for this family this year–the first was her sister’s recent newborn session, and now this beautiful senior popped in during her visit from Ohio for some portraits.   Senior portraits are a little venture away from my regular portfolio, but tons of fun and a great chance to be creative with backdrops and lighting.

Senior Portraits

May 18, 2010

mag3mag1mag2mag4mag5

I don’t market to high schools, so it’s rare that I get a request for senior portraits.  But when this beautiful girls’ mom contacted me and asked for some last minute senior portraits, I told her I would be happy to give it a try.  She was such a trooper, enduring my tricks and jokes that are usually intended for much younger children.  But we did manage to get the ipod dock rocking some country for her and hopefully she had a little fun, too.

Bring on the Wind

May 17, 2009

We spent several days concerned about the rain that was forecasted the morning, and decided to go ahead with the session anyway.  Well as it turned out, the rain held off but the wind kicked up and we worked between gusts.   But what great sports these girls and their parents were, and I’m so excited to share some sneak peaks from their session.
