Hollie, Trent, Jack & Quinn // Arlington, VA

Okay, this family is all sorts of awesome and adorable. I was so thrilled when Hollie asked me to come and take pictures of their family - including their newborn, Quinn! This was my first newborn photoshoot and it was just as cute and fun as I thought it would be. Also, do you guys remember Jack, the cute little tree hugger? Well, he was just as adorable the second time around - and such a great big brother! Thank you Hollie & Trent for the fun morning!!

Adrianna & Angel // Montrose Park, Georgetown

This couple is so beautiful - inside and out. I just love that their love shines through these photos so strongly! And they are pretty darn hilarious to boot! We spent a beautiful fall afternoon running around Montrose Park in Georgetown - playing in the leaves, walking the trails, enjoying the late afternoon sun - it was SUCH a wonderful shoot. Thank you Adrianna & Angel for the amazing afternoon!

The Khoobchandanis // US Botanic Gardens

Do you guys remember Rita, Pavan and little Saavn from our fun fall photoshoot at Rock Creek Park last year?! Well, I got to do ANOTHER photoshoot with them this year, and I was thrilled! It was a chilly day, so we ventured indoors to the US Botanic Gardens, which were all decorated for Christmas. It was so lovely! Here are two sneak peek shots of this awesome little family -- isn't it crazy how big Saavn has gotten?!

Sneak Peek: Caitlin // New York, NY

New York City is so magical - and Caitlin is SO stunning! Both are reasons why I am absolutely thrilled to share this sneak peek with you. We spent a whole Saturday gallivanting throughout the city...Central Park, Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge...the works! More photos to come!

Tiffany & Casey - Engaged! // Part 2

Let the adorableness continue! Here's part 2 of Tiffany and Casey's engagement photoshoot. Early on in the day, we decided it would be fun to snag a couple of photos at one of Alexandria's finest Irish pubs, Daniel O' Connells. It really doesn't get any more romantic than that dark wood, dim lighting, a crackling fire or two and a pint of your favorite beer! Tiffany and Casey opted for a shot of Jameson as it holds a particular significance to them...and of course, I had to join in on the fun! 

After we wrapped up in Alexandria, we headed to Colvin Mill Park out in the Potomac Falls area of Northern Virginia. It had gotten very grey and misty outside, but it cleared the crowds at the mill and we had the whole place to ourselves! It was an absolutely gorgeous setting. In addition to the big old brick mill, there were winding paths outlined with brightly colored trees - and TONS of leaves on the ground for us to work with (as you'll see in a photo below). 

Keep an eye out for Part 3 coming your way in the next couple of days!

Tiffany & Casey - Engaged! // Part 1

What a couple, what a day, what a shoot. Tiffany & Casey are all sorts of adorable and I am so happy to be able to finally share the rest of their engagement photos with you. But guess what...this is a SPECIAL engagement shoot - a three-part engagement shoot! I have so many awesome and amazing photos of this couple, there's just no way I can squeeze all of the engagement goodness into one post. 

Today's post (part 1) documents our Old Town Alexandria photo adventures. We started at the docks by the Torpedo Factory, then wandered the uneven sidewalks in search of front porch perfection, and ended on a beautiful cobblestone street. As I mentioned in their sneak peek, these two literally needed no direction from me! The love and happiness you see in these photos is 100% natural. They are the BEST. 

Part 2 will be coming your way in the next week or so. Stay tuned!
