Nancy & Ilan | Mount Pleasant Maternity Photos | Washington, DC

It’s all coming up babies, y’all. Nancy and Ilan, following a killer wedding, decided to get down on child-raising and had me over to document a piece of this time. They’ve lived in Mount Pleasant since even before they knew each other, so it was the perfect spot to do some maternity photos and show Baby Nancy&Ilan what their mom and dad’s ‘hood was like growing up.

I have something of a history photographing Nancy and Ilan in alleyways. Or they have something of a history of doing important life milestones near alleyways.

We stopped by the world’s most adorable market. For the record, they actually shop there.

They still make lots of funny faces and mostly just giggle when I give them “romantic” cues.

Congratulations, you guys!

Holly & Gene | Mt. Vernon Place United Methodist Church wedding | Washington, DC

Holly and Gene were married right in the heart of downtown DC at the Mt. Vernon Place United Methodist Church last week, surrounded by their very nearest and dearest. These cool cats have been all over the world together but brought it on home to DC for an intimate, personal wedding with three very lovely young ladies as attendants. Holly and Gene:

I was super-digging Holly’s subtle floral crown.

The church is right on Mt. Vernon square, so we took a quick jaunt across the street for photos with DC’s beautiful public library.

The B&W photo, 3rd from the bottom is really nice! Excellent work!

Personal: The Netherlands and England

Travel is a strange thing. The way I do it, it’s work. You get up early, go hard, eat exotic foods because they are exotic, stay up late and sleep in less-than-desirable conditions. And you drag your husband around on your agenda because you are the planner. It’s rewarding in quite indescribable ways. I’m a different person than I was a few years back before we started traveling constantly. Seeing the world gives you new perspectives, new ideas. It’s enlightening. And exhausting. And sometimes delightful. But also sometimes miserable. It’s a big world. I’m very lucky to have the opportunity to see some of it.

Every year for the last three, George has gone to Oxford to work with his colleagues there. I went two years ago and we also hit Belgium. We fell quite in love with Flanders, so we decided to try just a tad north and this year went to The Netherlands before settling George in the old university for several weeks.
