Glen Echo Park First Birthday Party | Washington D.C. Family Photographer

We celebrated Eleanor's First Birthday yesterday with a small party at Glen Echo Park yesterday. It was a breakfast theme and my favorite part was the pancake cake! Eleanor really loved it (despite her usual dirty looks in the pictures) and we had such a great time sharing the morning with all of our friends.

I had such an amazing time with this family a few weekends ago. We arrived at the Lincoln Memorial for their Washington. D.C. family photo shoot early in the morning and got to see the sunrise over the reflecting pool.

Living in the suburbs, I often forget what a special place we have the opportunity to live and work in.

As we celebrate this weekend, I saw this quote that I think really resonates:
"The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence"

Happy Independence Day everyone!!!!

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. :-)
