{Engaged} Natalie & Luis

Spring is finally in the air, and what better way to enjoy the warmer temps and sunshine than an engagement session with a beautiful couple.

I knew the day would be a great one as soon as spotted them; Luis in a black suit, and Natalie with her black dress, classic trench coat, and cloche hat.  They looked like they had just stepped out of Carey Grant film, full of old Hollywood glamour.

The day could not have been more beautiful with the sun shining perfectly for almost every photo.

Being the stunning couple that they are, people couldn't help but notice and compliment them.  A group of students even chanted "kiss her" for Luis, a request he happily obliged.


A stunning session right?
Thank you Natalie and Luis for letting me spend an afternoon capturing your love and passion for each other.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, it will be amazing.

{Engaged} Catherine & Michael

I am so looking forward to Catherine and Michael's wedding this coming summer.  In preparation for the big day we did a mini-engagement session.  Because we expected cold weather we initially planned to do the whole session at the National Gallery, but we were pleasantly surprised with a gorgeous day.  After snapping a few photos inside we hurried outside to catch a some shots with that magical golden light that comes just before sunset.

I really can't wait for the summer!
Congratulations Catherine and Michael!

{Newborn} Baby Katie

It's fitting that my first session after having my little girl is a newborn session for another little girl.  Meet baby Katie, her parents Mark and Carolyn are so happy to welcome her into their lives.  Just check out those bright eyes and all that hair, it's no wonder they're smitten.

Make no mistake, she actually has her daddy wrapped around her finger.

Congratulations Mark and Carolyn, Katie is a sweetheart!

{My Family}

Finally, at 8 weeks old my husband and I found the time have our own family photo session with our new addition, Ramona Petra.  She was born 6 weeks early on Nov. 24, 2013 at 4lbs 7oz.  She is now twice her birth size and growing like a weed to catch up with her peers.  We are loving every moment we spend with her and are doing our best to savor it all.

My husband sweetly helped out to make sure we got some photos with me and Ramona.

She has stolen her daddy's heart, and he proudly displays his love.

Copper of course had to get in on the action, it wouldn't be a photo session in our home without him.

We can happily say that our family is now complete.

 And then, after the photo session this happened, one of those special real life moments you just have to capture to make sure you never forget it.
