Nancy, Ilan & Baby L | Washington DC maternity photography | Mt. Pleasant

Once upon a time, two lovely people met in Mt. Pleasant, fell in love, got married and had a baby. They made goofy faces at the baby, because goofy faces are this couple’s particular forte. Sometimes the baby cried, but mostly she was very happy. And then they hired a brilliant photographer to take documentary family photos. The end.

Ok, not the end. Not the beginning. Just somewhere in the very-good middle.washington-dc-documentary-newborn-photography-25

Baby L has a tiny tongue and little tiny toes.

And a tiny vajay – sorry future teenage Baby L!

Nancy and Ilan’s house has amazing light. Everyone should get to live in a house with light like this. I fully anticipate they will do all future baby cuddling mushed into this corner of their kitchen.

Congratulations, you two.

Ronee & Bill | Arts Club of Washington, DC wedding

Ronee and Bill feel things. You can tell because you can see that shiz plain as day on their faces. Love, joy, admiration, astonishment. They tied the knot at the Arts Club of Washington in a ceremony that can only be described as a production. They have scads of theater friends and so their semi-DIY wedding was a complete triumph of execution, design and performance. And it was fun, too. Ronee and Bill:

We started the day right next door at the Hotel Lombardy.

Then hopped over one so these two lovebirds could say hello. (Also, pause – look at Ronee’s ridiculously pretty dress!)

In the car, on the way to Constitution Gardens – one of my favorite spots to get greenery and water and a quick DC scene without having to travel far.

Yes, this is the National Mall.

Meagan & Joseph | DC courthouse wedding photography | Washington, D.C.

Meagan and Joseph came all the way from Alabama to tie the knot in our nation’s capital. It was a secret wedding for a few days, so they partied it up that weekend with friends unawares. Very romantic. Also, Meagan really knows how to pick a dress.

The DC Courthouse was the scene for our heroes’ big moment.

Then we scooted down to the National Mall for some portrait action. Poor Meagan broke her pinkie toe a little previously, so she had to wear a brace thing.

But we switched it out quickly. My apologies for the stress, pinkie toe!

That dress really did twirl in the most fantastic way.
