Bob Ross birthday party!

I am very fortunate to be surrounded by lovely, talented people.  Colin chose to have a “Bob Ross” painting party in celebration of his birthday and I was quite surprised at which of my friends are skilled painters.  Who knew!  Here are some images – a bit late, I know, but it’s been busy here on the blog!

Aimee & Richard | Sneak Peek

I had a really good time with Aimee and Richard yesterday at Dumbarton Oaks for their engagement session.  I had no idea it was such a popular spot for photography – I ran into three other photographers there (one of whom I’m second shooting for this weekend – hi Tara!).  And I’m all impatient and things so here is a little sneak peek from our session.  More to come!

Awesome stuff to buy | Coloring books

If you’re anything like me, you’re looking for ideas for your wedding that will be a bit off-beat and quirky.  That’s why I created this goofy, fun coloring book for Stephanie & Colin.  I wanted to make something special for these two for Stephanie’s birthday and drew significant inspiration from Photojojo‘s tutorial on making coloring books for kids.  But why should the kids get all the fun?  I think these would make really cute bridal party presents or even an unusual guest book for your wedding – have your guests color in a page or part of a page, and then write all over the rest!

I’m pretty proud of this little book.
