Happy Mother's Day! Washington D.C. Family Photographer | Bethesda Family Photographer | Arlington Family Photographer

Yesterday was my very first Mother's Day and I loved every minute of it. We spent the morning with two very special friends at Mount Vernon and toured the beautiful grounds before heading over to Old Town Alexandria for a delicious brunch. Of course, we managed to squeeze in a photoshoot while we were there to remember the special day.

Happy Mother's Day to all my friends and clients that I am lucky enough to call my friends.

My special gift from baby Eleanor was that she actually smiled for a family photo. :-)

**I just realized I'm wearing this dress in another post! lol  Guess I need to change up my wardrobe a little.

          Come the spring
  with all its splendor
                     all its birds and 
all its blossoms
      all its flowers
and leaves and grasses

I took some time today to seize the moment and take some family photos of my own with the blossoms.  It was a gorgeous afternoon and I love that we got to spend a few moments enjoying the weather, the blossoms, and our tiny little family.  You can tell from the photos who Eleanor likes just a little better.

Cherry Blossom Mini-Sessions have started with a blossoming bang! Can't wait to see more of my clients this weekend!


Fall Mini-Session Round Up- Part 1

Contrary to what my Facebook or Instagram feed might imply, I do take pictures of people other than baby Eleanor on a daily basis. :-)

This fall 2014 family photography season was a whirlwind in the most amazing way possible.  I know I have said this before, but I seriously feel honored to watch all of my client families grow up. Each season I get to see little babies take their first steps and then "poof"- 4 years later they are running and laughing and winning games for gummies. The best part is they are about as excited to see me (most of the time) as I am to see them.  

Here are a few images from this season's family photography mini-shoots.  More to come next week!
