Julia Gutierrez brought her adorable little ones, Liam (8 months) and Audrey (almost three) for a rambunctious portrait session in Green Spring Gardens Park in Alexandria.  We ran, climbed trees, did gymnastic tumbling, had a tea party, rolled in the grass and generally had a wonderful time together.  Julia chose great outfits for the portraits, which always helps.

The Draetta Family

Juanita and Ralph have a beautiful, very strong little girl named Sidney.  Here are some of the baby portraits and family portraits that I created with them in the studio one evening.

The Silvergleide family moved away from Washington D.C. to Austin, Texas this year.  Before leaving their home here, they asked me to take pictures of the family throughout the house so they could remember their D.C. lives.  I did lifestyle portraits of the children in their rooms as well as family portraits in front of their Cleveland Park home.  They are a young family, and wanted casual portraits depicting daily life during summer vacation.

This past weekend I had the privilege of standing as a bridesmaid for one of my oldest friends, Jacqui, as she got married in Old Town Alexandria. It was a wonderful, beautiful weekend (albeit a blur), and I wanted to share with you one of my favorite parts-Jacqui and David’s music selection! Typically, the first thing that comes to mind when you think of wedding music is Canon in D, played by a string quartet. Sure, it’s a nice piece, but I think I’ve heard it ten.thousand.times. There are no rules about what the music has to be, so why not change it up!? Jacqui asked her friend, Evan Setzer (fiance to one of my fellow bridesmaids) to play at her wedding instead. Even is an extremely talented, classically trained cellist (and totally adorable guy in general) who has been playing for about 17 years now.  I am in love with how wonderful he sounded! A solo cello has such a beautiful and romantic sound to it, and it set such a nice tone for the wedding. To top it off, Jacqui walked down to a song from Braveheart, David’s all time favorite movie! If you are looking for something a little different when it comes to your wedding music, I would highly recommend contacting Evan on his website.

Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting Diana and Carlos and photographing their engagement session. They introduced me to this amazing location- Dumbarton Oaks Gardens, tucked away in Georgetown. I was DYING over it! Maybe I’ve just been living under a rock, but I never even knew this place existed. It felt like we were running around the Secret Garden. It was a little hot for September, but they were troopers (and Carlos even made a much-needed Diet Coke run for the ladies). Here are some of my favorite images:
