Q and U Wedding | Ashburn Photographer

So, I’ll just state this right now – I’m not a wedding photographer.  In my opinion it’s a different skill set than family portrait photographers.  However, when it’s a bunch of kids including your daughter you agree to take a shot at it. The wedding of Q and U is the culmination of a years...

Fall Hiking | Ashburn Family Photographer

Talk about being behind!  I just wrapped up an amazing fall season and I’m finally able to sit down and blog a bunch of back sessions. Plus, Christmas cards should be out soon so I can share images from those fall sessions without spoiling anything.  Anywho, back to catching up.  This share isn’t a client session...

Chincoteague | Virginia Family Photographer

My kids have been on me all summer what going to the beach. Weirdly enough, we are only like like 2 hours from the nearest “shore” but always preferred to head south to the OBX for our beach fixes. This year however we were a little late on the draw and didn’t end up finding...

Puddle Jumping | Aldie Child Photographer

Never have I seen such glee and persistence than when it comes to Myra and puddles!  A few nights ago we had a nice long hard rain (way overdue!) and it filled up two pockets at the edge where the new asphalt met the old asphalt.  With the humidity and temperature breaking with the passing...

Family Fishing | Aldie Child Photographer

We have a beautiful lake in our neighborhood that we don’t use often enough despite the 5 minute walk over there. On this particular evening Lia wanted to take pics over there so we decided to change that and go as a family.  She and I split off to take some shots on the earthen dam while...

My Buttercup in the Grass | Aldie Child Photographer

I realize that I never got around to blogging these pics of my Lia.  We’d had an exceptionally wet spring and the kids were tired of being cooped up in the house.   Once the rain broke, Lia suggested we go out and take pics (love this kid!)  She wanted to wear her pretty dress...

Welcoming Summer | Loudoun Photographer

Nothing screams summer than a night of carnival rides and food.  We always try to make it to at least one carnival/fair each summer and it’s not hard since it seems that every town and HOA around us throws one!  To a momtog (mom photographer for those unfamiliar:) ), carnivals are the perfect place for some...

6 on the 6th | Aldie Family Photographer

It’s time again for another installment of the 6 on the 6th. May was a month full of fun – and rain! Lots and lots of rain.  We did manage a few sunny days in there and we made the most of them. Once you’re finished here, click on over to  Frame This Moment Photography...

Neighborhood Fun | Aldie Family Photographer

When we were little we were always outside – rain, snow, sun – didn’t matter. We were always outside getting into something. I’m so happy that as our neighborhood evolves, more and more outdoor kids are moving in and finding their way into my backyard and the backyards of the homes around us. I also...

Family Hike | Great Falls Family Photographer

When we had that nice burst of spring last month we decided to get the kids out of the house and on to the trails. We were hoping to plan a backpack trip with them for the end of the month and wanted to see how they’d do on a longer hike to see what...
