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!

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

What an AWESOME family. Trent, Hollie, Jack & Quinn made this past Sunday morning pretty special for me. It was the first time I'd ever done newborn photography, and they made it an absolute breeze. Let's be honest, they are an adorable family to begin with (which never hurts when doing a photoshoot!) but they were also so pleasant, so excited and so fun to work with. So, without further adieu, I'm thrilled to be able to present my first newborn sneak peek to you...this is Quinn, everyone! 

More to come in the following weeks!

Adrianna & Angel // Montrose Park, Georgetown

I can't tell you how much fun I had with Adrianna and Angel at their shoot yesterday! We spent the afternoon among the fall leaves in Montrose Park in Georgetown. The perfect weather mixed with the gorgeous scenery was to DIE for. Sounds a bit extreme, but it's true! Adrianna and Angel are naturals in front of the camera - and I think it's obvious in these photos. They were so much fun and so themselves - which always makes for pretty amazing results. The two pictures below literally take my breath away. I can't wait to show you the rest!
