Personal: So Much Random Stuff

I haven’t done a personal post in ages. I get behind. It happens. Actually, I’ve just yesterday evening come back from a trip to Madrid and I leave next week for The Netherlands and England! I thought to myself: self, put up those Madrid photos before you get slammed with the next batch of travel photos. Except, I have three months’ worth of other crap from various travels and adventures that I haven’t posted. So instead of “hey, I just got back from Madrid!”, you get a bunch of random stuff. Enjoy!

In chronological order, just cuz:

Love these little glimpses into your life!

Sarah & Rob | Crystal City maternity session | Arlington

Sarah and Rob are having a baby and that’s rad. They live two steps from all these places we shot at in Crystal City – the kind of session I love doing – just wandering around their neighborhood. It’s especially nice to do for a maternity session, so baby-on-the-way can see where Mom and Dad hung out before they came along. Also, Crystal City is mad beautiful, if you take the time to look at it.


Their pup Maggie is going to have to give up some attention soon enough.


I kind of love the dog creeping on them.


Congratulations, you guys!

Sarah & Patrick | Woodend Wedding | Chevy Chase

Sarah and Patrick had a really lovely and down-to-earth ceremony at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring and then a beautiful reception with killer light at Woodend Nature Sanctuary – one of my favorite venues in the area. There were approximately eight thousand fireflies in attendance.


We started the day at the Hilton Garden Inn Silver Spring North with much makeup-ing and hair-ing and nail painting-ing.


Sarah and Patrick chose to do a first look in his parents’ lovely back yard.


Their church was very relaxed and welcoming.


And the pastor did a fantastic job.


Marriage accomplished, we headed over to Woodend for family pics, couple pics and much partying.


As always, I love Woodend’s wall of stuffed birds. I was determined to photograph Sarah in front of the birds, as I normally only get the groom up in there. The lady at the desk provided very excellent motivation.
