Jade & Paul | Arlington maternity session

Jade and Paul just bought a house, in time to fill it with their ridiculously tiny dogs and an itty-bitty new person Jade is growing. I’m excited to meet the new little human later this year, but for now Jade and Paul wanted to document this time of transition in their lives. We took a few around their new digs, then scooted over to a really lovely park near their house. I hope the baby has a huge head of curly hair, too.

I generally like dogs, but these are really really cute dogs. I think if there were only one of them, I wouldn’t be tripping.

Congratulations, guys! See you before you know it!

Greece: Dimitsana through Athens

As predicted, it’s taken me ages to get to the third and final installment of my Greece photos [post 1, post 2], but here it is! We start this last third of the trip in Dimitsana, yet another incredibly charming mountain town. Greece was nothing if not charming. But first, as always, my favorite image from the set. You’ll hear more about Mystras below.

I left off in the also-charming also-mountain town of Kalavrita, on Christmas Day. When we got back down the mountain, we hopped in the car and took the ride over to Olympia, where we stayed at the very hospitable Hotel Pelops (highly recommend!). But it was Christmas Day, and everything was closed. Likewise December 26, which is also a holiday in Greece. Our hotelier suggested/basically told us we must drive around the nearby mountains to see the towns of Dimitsana, Stemnitsa and Andritsena.
