i had the most wonderful time visiting my friend holly + her gorgeous family! it’s been years since i’ve seen her — and our early morning family session was a striking change from our old late night karaoke rendezvous! yay for facebook and fantastic friend (re)connections! holly was just as fun + beautiful as ever, and glowing with happiness! and with good reason — she’s head over heels in love with a hunky hubby and darling new baby! little harper is 8 months old and has the cutest personality (and beautiful face!) and i absolutely loved spending the morning with this family!
the darling anna rose.
anna rose :: 8 months.
i *love* photographing anna rose!
the very first time i photographed anna she was still inside her mom’s belly – and the first time i met her she was just 17 days old! i have photographed this incredible family often over the last few years, most recently documenting anna rose’s baptism a few months ago and then visiting her the other week for a little mini session! she’s growing and changing so much, but her adorable personality continues to shine!
big sister jules!
cha-cha! sassy showgirl!
say hello to liam + lily wynn! last week i had the pleasure of meeting these absolutely adorable children for a lifestyle family session with their parents + grandparents – so fun!
they were very excited, especially after liam confirmed with me that he “didn’t have to look at the camera” (too funny!) and i had a great time watching them riding their bikes, blowing bubbles, and playing on their awesome swing set. even better, their parents got in on the action – swinging and even sliding down the slide with the kids! they are such a fun and loving family – there was lots of laughter (due to lots of tickling!), lots of hugs, and so many silly faces. i just love seeing siblings play together – learning their favorite games, and funny things they like to do. i especially love how kids always want to show you things – they are such fabulous little entertainers!

a day at the zoo.
i had the most fabulous time at the dc zoo with the fabulously famous quinn and her crew!
it was a hot afternoon and everyone was feeling crazy goofy – which i loved! i’m so glad i finally got to meet jay and his awesome kids – christian + evie grace are smart, cute and super fun. highlights included monkeying around outside of the ape house, and seeing everyone’s silly mustache face!
the mustache crew.
no more cameras, please.
blonde photo lifestyle sessions = playtime!
i had so much fun playing with charlie + callie! a few weeks ago i spent the afternoon with these two as they showed me their circus tricks, played dress up, made art, and even built all sorts of crazy things! the cold winter weather didn’t stop them from showing me how they climb trees, race around on scooters and have fun together! in addition to charlie + callie, i had the joy of meeting lucy – the spunkiest little puppy ever! her + charlie are best buds and it was an absolute riot watching them play together! the only time lucy didn’t have charlie’s full attention was when he was busy playing with his awesome big sister callie – and lucy would either jump in the mix or watch anxiously from the sidelines, tail wagging! not only the kids super fun, but they have some pretty cool parents, and we managed to sneak in a few quick family photos as well! i had a blast with this family – it was the perfect way to spend a cold winter day! thanks guys – enjoy!
and hello callie!
the whole family!
