Rock the Shot August Photo Challenge | Water

It’s been a while since I’ve done a challenge – actually, come to think of it, this is the first on this blog. Wohoo.. Rock the Shot (www.rocktheshot.com) is running this particular challenge and the theme is water.  I may be stretching it here but there technically is water in this shot, it’s just underneath…

Sweet Little Miss

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting with this beautiful little miss and her mommy!   She had a beautiful airy nursery, perfect for our little session. I’m so impressed with her mommy and daddy – they held out until the day she was born to find out if she was a boy or…

A Mermaid Themed Bash…

This past weekend we celebrated my little Lia’s 3rd birthday.  Having a summer birthday has its perks – namely the ability to do an outdoor party and a requirement for a water attraction of some sort.  Since her birthday the last two years ended up while we’re on vacation I was determined to get a party in this…

Super Action Heroz…

This week is heroes week at my son’s school so it reminded me of this awesome set of images from a few weeks ago at my house.  My kids were playing outside with the neighbor kids when all of a sudden they disappeared into the house.  About 10 min later they emerge as this motley…

A Fathers Day Outing..

There are some perks living a bit further out from the city (which make up for the commute).  One of which is having closer access to some of Northern Virginia’s wineries and breweries.  We’d heard about Quattro Goomba’s from a number of friends who raved about their pizza and wine and figured Fathers day was…

Finding the balance…

This is a post that I’ve had started and in draft mode for about 2 months now.  I open it up, write a few lines, get distracted/fall asleep/break up a fight, and neglect to come back to it for another few weeks.   This is why I’m titling it ‘finding the balance’…. I’m a wife and a…

The Golden Hour….

My favorite time to photograph is what we like to call “the golden hour”.   This time is the hour or two just prior to sunset and the hour or two just after sun rise.  During this time period the sun is lower on the horizon and casting longer shadows.  Also, as the name suggests, it’s…

Yes, I look like a sherpa…

When I arrive at your newborn session please don’t be alarmed, I’m not moving in I promise.  In home posed newborn sessions require some equipment (vs. lifestyle newborns which are much more minimal) and I like to be prepared when I arrive on site.  You’ll see the following: 1. large puck style beanbag – for…

Those everyday moments…

As a child I was always carrying a camera.  Roll after roll of 110 and 35mm film were dropped off for 1 hour processing followed by the thrill of opening up that envelope to see what you really caught. Being young there was no thought to composition or lighting or any kind of technique really, we were…
