Lovin' in Naptown

This couple came prepared with a Save-the-Date sign, wine glasses, a change of clothing, and a great attitude. We captured a variety of settings around the waterfront and historic Annapolis. Then wrapped up the shoot with some images on the beautiful grounds of the USNA. With some dance moves, lots of laughter, and a piggy back ride, we all had fun capturing the love of these two.

Up For Anything!

This family gives us so many opportunities to capture their fun. For over 3 years now, we have had a chance to capture them at our annual CAMOM Open House where we work from sunup to sundown to capture the twin families of the Columbian Area Mothers of Multiples. We have also gotten the chance to do a beach shoot with them as well. They are always up for anything we suggest and have a great time. Our stuffed monkey toys are often a hit with the small boys, whose giggles ring through the studio and sing in our pictures.

Three Unique Kids

Anyone who has spent any time with little ones know they are each very different. It is especially and adorably poignant in this family with three children that each looks very different from the others - and each has such a unique personality too. Beautiful inside and out! We love capturing them each year in the pre-holiday sittings we hold in Columbia.

Fun-loving Duo

In going through images from 2012, this one struck me. When teens, especially boys, show their sweet side for us, I just melt. This older brother could not have been any more patient, fun, and loving to his spirited and super-funny little brother. Quite a memorable duo for me.

Welcome Baby Thor

Dear Baby Thor, Welcome to the world. We loved capturing your baby face, in your baby hat, with your baby diaper and baby smell. Love, Rebecca and Brian

Photography: The Best Gift for Mom

As with many families, the best gift for Mom is treasured photographs. These boys take time out of their busy schedules to come to a shoot each fall as a Christmas gift for their mother. They even bring Mom along, as she can get the best smiles and laughs from them. Based on what we hear in these sessions, they have some great fun at home with many impressions and inside jokes. It should be a badge of honor for this mom that her boys have grown into such polite and generous teenagers.

A Capitol Wedding

This fun couple was up-beat and organized from the first time we met them. Such a beautiful day full of really well-planned experiences and tons of truly unique moments. Their friends and family surrounded them with touching offerings, much laughter, and loving support on their special day. The party began as soon as they got into the limo, and was even more spirited after we enjoyed some quick photos right in front of the Capitol Building at sunset. The dancing lasted long into the night (Powered by the amazing Elite Showband), and the love will surely last a lifetime.

Bridal Beauty Shoot

She looks magazine ready, but this was no model. This is the real thing. A girl ready to marry her guy. This lovely bride booked her bridal shoot about 3 weeks before her wedding date. It made for a great trial run for hair, make-up, and flowers, and guaranteed that the dress was altered and ready to go. We had so much fun capturing her closer beauty shots, as well as some full length shots that really featured her amazing lines in the exquisite dress. This bride felt strongly about having no retouching, so what you see here is exactly what we got out of our camera.

An Intimate Wedding for Three

Some weddings are on a grand scale - everything is larger than life... vast. These are memorable and extravagant and beautiful. Some weddings are intimate - everything is important, special, and beautiful. We enjoyed the special moments found at this intimate wedding including pinky promises, close family, much love, and a spirited baby daughter all in a beautiful family home with white porches, pastural views, and cathedral ceiling sunrooms.

Schooled by Preschoolers

Smithsonian Early Educational Center - With this shoot, we had a chance to utilize our creative problem solving and adaptability. We are very comfortable in so many wedding situations, or in an outdoor park, or in our home studio. But even with squeezing our studio set-up into a space often half as large, we still get schooled in adaptability by the kids. Some of them are just so flexible. They meet strangers (some-awesome-cool-strangers-if-I-do-say-so-myself), get put in a room with weird backdrop stuff they have likely never seen before, and then, in less than 3 minutes, give us their genuine little personalities to capture for always. Here are some favorites from our recent preschool shoot at SEEC in Washington, DC.
