Welcome Home!!

In early August, thanks to a wonderful organization I’m a part of, Welcome Them Home, I had the opportunity to photograph a soldier’s homecoming at Dulles International Airport. To say this was the biggest moment of my photography career thus far would be an understatement. I could not be more grateful to him and his family for their service and sacrifice and can’t wait to have the chance to participate in another family’s happy reunion.

Welcome home, soldier!  And thanks for a job well-done.

Celebrate Three in Costume!

Amidst warnings of Hurricane Sandy, we were delighted to celebrate this sweet girl’s 3rd birthday on a most gorgeous morning at the park.  And this close to Halloween, everyone was in costume, of course.  The birthday girl’s mom had thought of every detail, including a fun fall nature hunt, masks to decorate, make-your-own trail mix and a beautiful and delicious cake to enjoy.

A Pink Party

We spent this beautiful afternoon celebrating this young lady’s third birthday in all-pink style.  Everything, including the attendees attire, was various shades of pink – the ombre layered birthday cake, all beverages, and the balloon ‘wall’ enclosing the yard, to name a few.  Such a festive afternoon and a memorable birthday!

Pumpkin Patch

We took our boy to visit his first pumpkin patch recently… and as inexperienced parents, we hadn’t thought ahead to the fact that a whole farm full of pumpkins was to this little guy, a farm full of ‘balls’ to be thrown.  Lesson learned.  Even though it was an unseasonably grey and cool day, we still had a great time picking out pumpkins, petting some animals, riding on a hayride, and enjoying a picnic with friends and family.

The Twins Turn 3!

What a fun morning celebrating the third birthday of these sweet twins.  We were all treated to an adorable Hungriest Caterpillar-themed party, complete with apothecary jars filled with each of the foods that the caterpillar had eaten on his way to becoming a beautiful butterfly.  The twins were the perfect hosts; I was so honored to not only have the chance to celebrate with them but to also help record such a memorable day for their family.
