Simply Stunning Senior…

I loved photographing this senior girl just recently. She needed headshots to support her college applications to theatre programs and future auditions as well as some lifestyle photos for actor comp and model cards. So we stayed local and found different locations in downtown McLean to take some fun relaxed photographs. We looked for backgrounds, poses and lighting that emphasized her eyes and showcased her long hair. She changed outfits a few times to give variety and we found textures and colors in the locations to complement her natural features.

I loved hearing about her rehearsals for the upcoming Langley High School performance, The Dining Room. It sounds intriguing! Definitely going to try to see it this weekend.

Thank you CG. Good luck with all things college related, I can’t wait to hear where you decide to go.

Puppy Love!

How adorable are these guys? The cuteness is off the charts, for sure! And, how lucky is this pup to land a family with young energetic kids and a great backyard with trees, toys, tennis balls and plenty of room to run. He is the perfect dog for them: fun, loving, gentle, loyal, calm. Just four months old, but clearly he is already a much loved part of their lives.

We kept it relaxed and casual for this young family’s photoshoot.  It was a warm October afternoon and we were able to find a number of places around their home to get some great shots. These siblings are at complete ease with each other and I loved seeing the closeness of their bond.

Thank you puppy & family! Here are a few of my favorites from our time together.

Family Focused

I had a blast with this sweet family just recently. Now that their youngest member is about to turn one year old, they wanted some updated relaxed family photos. We chose a nearby location that worked for everyone to gather and got lucky with a warm October afternoon.  This quiet trail area with grass, a pond and a bridge continues to be one of my local favorites. A recent clean up effort and repair work around the bridge making it more accessible and even more photogenic.

Transitioning from baby to toddler is such a precious age. This little one was so adorable throughout the session and had such darling reactions as she discovered her surroundings. She had so much fun just being outside, exploring the grass and delighting in all the fall leaves on the ground. Of course she stole the show!

Thank you LS and family for trusting me with capturing images that will be part of your memories in years to come. Here are a few of my favorites from our time together:

Right Here, Right Now!

So excited for this young man as he goes from success to success. Just started his sophomore year in college, after a busy summer earning his SAG card, and already he’s landed an awesome part in a mainstage production and selected for Noteworthy, the premier a capella group.

We made the most of the time he had last month to update his photos to give him some fresh, new headshots and comp card choices. Keeping the crop and focus in tight, we chose locations that gave strong simple backgrounds to give interest and depth without being distracting. Love his looks and the casual tee shirts were on point for a young actor and college kid.

Talk about turning heads. And knowing he’s got the talent, the temperament, and the training, he’s definitely right here, right now!

Thank you JBB. Don’t slow down – keep killin’ it! Can’t wait to see where you go and what you do.

Young, fun & happy!

Mission: Help me get some great photos of her grandkids and our families for my mom
Result: Mission accomplished!
This family came ready to have fun with their family pictures.  They were full of energy from the minute they arrived and channeled their enthusiasm into some great images to show their love for each other.  The mid summer field was a perfect background and gave plenty of open space for these casual family moments.
They planned for success. Not only had they gently coordinated their looks and clothes without being too set or cliched, but everyone was on board and excited. Kudos to the family!  After all, getting all 13 family members to one place on a busy summer weekend is always an accomplishment!  Love this family for doing this for their mom.
Thank you R/J family – You made it happen! – Here are a few of my favorites from our time together.
