I’m editing like mad right now trying to keep up with all the holiday orders, but I found a bit of time on Sunday to visit my friends Regan & Bill and their beautiful boy, Patrick. I photographed Patrick when he was just a wee wrinkly little guy and it was so fun to see him again, twice as big, with a big smile and ruddy cheeks! So amidst all the hustle, let me take a moment to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season!
As I edit these pictures, I see all the snow falling outside the window and press my toes to the radiator to keep them warm. And it’s really strange to think that my session with Caris & Evan and their parents was only about a week ago! It was a gorgeous sunny fall day such a short time ago and now the snow is coming down!
Caris & Evan are such cuties – Caris is about three and half and Evan is just seventeen months. Caris was full of smiles and wanted to show me everything – her ballet moves, her best stuffed monkey, how high she could swing and her favorite books. Evan was not sure that my camera and I were really a welcome sight. He definitely eyed me very suspiciously, but we got a few smiles here and there – after all, it’s hard to pay attention to the weird camera when there are so many other great things to capture your attention!
I LOVE this picture of Caris giggling and tickling her dad!
Sometimes the really sad faces are just as precious as the happy ones!
When I first met Lucas, at his five month session, he was just getting his first cold. Lucas was the grumpiest little guy that day and we were lucky to get one little dimple the whole day!
But last week, I got to see the real Lucas! This little guy is almost one year old now and he is so full of giggles and smiles!
I have been so lucky recently that all of my portrait sessions have been on beautiful sunny days! The fall foliage has been gorgeous and my session with Athena and her parents was no exception. We went out to the Franciscan Monastery in DC on a Monday afternoon, when the gardens were quiet and the sun was shining. Athena had a great time running around, playing “walk, walk, jump” and gathering leaves to make big ears and fairy wings! And when it was time to smile for a family picture, no word got her giggling more than Abby Cadabby!
It was a beautiful day last Saturday – I really miss that weather right now! After all these rainy days and weekends lately, we got lucky and had a gorgeous morning for Pierson’s debut on camera!
This little guy is about four months old now and his parents, Peter & Monica, just adore him in every way possible. And for good reason! Pierson is just full of personality and spends all his time smiling, kicking, trying to roll over and talking like nobody’s business!
I love this shot! Pierson is wondering why no one is making googly eyes at him, Moxie (that gorgeous Aussie) is trying to be a good girl and sit still for the camera and Peter & Monica are just beaming at each other!
Babies make such crazy expressions and this series is my tribute to those nutty baby faces, which are so entertaining and should never be forgotten!
All tuckered out….
And let’s not forget Moxie. She would like me to mention that she is able to perform a wide variety of tricks and is happy to give you her rates anytime you need a doggie model ;P
