Lemonade and Strawberries

I have been planning a shoot with this dress for ages.  It was going to going to have cowboy boots and a log cabin but I couldn't cowboy boots that I liked.  During my search I found this quilt and basket instead and changed the whole concept.  I will be using this set up for my summer mini sessions in August.

You can find out more information about the summer mini sessions here.

Baby B! So Sweet...

This session was wonderful. Mom was very relaxed and kept giving the little guy feedings to help me keep him sleepy. Isn't he just yummy?

New business cards are final printed l Rockville Area Portrait Photographer

I change my designs constantly because I do all me logos and websites and blogging myself.  I never feel finished.  But I finally made the commitment to these business cards and had them printed.  Hopefully, I will continue to like for at least a few months.  Of course, I already want to put my latest newborn shoot on here.  That will be blogged soon.

Ollie & Bess

I had a great shoot with this family.  The kids were so cute and fun.  One of the girls thought we should put her pictures in a magazine... a little model in the making.  All the clothes are from Ollie & Bess, a great online store for classic, timeless kids clothes!

A beautiful family

I have had three sessions with this wonderful family since August.  One turned into a mini session because of the rain, the next was a dance session because they were unhappy with ones from the dance studio.  This last one was so last minute.  The oldest daughter is grown so is not always around.  I received a call on Thanksgiving saying she's here... you have to come.  So the next morning I was there.  I had a blast photographing them.  This collage will replace the one over the fireplace that we did when the 8 year old was just 1 and the little guy was only a twinkle.

A crazy session

This session was crazy. Mama B called and said it is raining in Gaithersburg. In all my wisdom, I replied, "Oh, don't worry, it's not raining in Rockville, let's still do it!" So we got to the lovely mansion and photographed on their beautiful grounds for about 7 minutes before the torrential downpour started. Mama B and I where huddled under a dense tree in a small 3 foot patch of dry while the kids ran around and got soaked and splashed in puddles. They had a blast! I got my camera out again after the rain stopped and took some fun images that really embody these children. Thankfully, Mama was a good sport and saw the humor in the situation! What a fun time!

My horsey friends

This is a picture I took with my junkie point and shoot. The sky was awesome looking as a storm was blowing in. I ran to the car for my camera and took a few shots but nothing came out as I had envisioned because all I had was my little camera that I keep in my purse. But I still liked this one because of the angle and the way you see one horse in the background under the first. Skip, in the back, is actually a lot bigger than Tiger Lily (a pony), in the front. This shows some of the post production that can be done to make a snapshot into something interesting.

I just did a restoration project for a client. I am thrilled to see that professional images are valued by family for generations. The snap shots they had were a total loss but with the quality materials of these pro images, they were just a bit cracked and yellow but salvageable.

Down by the stream

I went on a Boy Scouts hike with my two little ones last fall. During the 4 hours of hiking with a 7 year old and a 4 year old, I found a great place for portraits. It took two more visits to pinpoint an easier way to that spot. When I did, the place that I was dreaming about was two feet under water. We had so much snow and rain this winter. I got some great shots of my little model anyway and I'm sure the water will go down as the green comes out. Soooo looking forward to spring!!
