I have to say it is just so much fun to work with the same family over and over again so I was thrilled to get to work with the beautiful Yavari family again this year. After briefly meeting Chrstina & John at John's sister, Jo's wedding at Decatur House last year, I knew that I would have to work with them on their own wedding at the Ritz Carlton, Pentagon City which was a couple of weeks ago. And as usual, the Yavari family did not disappoint. This time they wowed us with a red-themed wedding with a cool, asian flair. John's parents even surprised the couple with a Ninja who periodically flipped through the reception. He was so quiet and quick that guests weren't even sure what was going on...some even seemed to think they might be going crazy which was a riot to watch. And of course it

I was so so excited when one of my gorgeous brides from way back in 2005 emailed me a couple of months ago to ask me if I'd be willing to shoot a boudoir session of her as a gift for her husband who is a marine pilot currently serving in Afghanistan. Of course I had to say yes and last month on my trip to DC, after a little champagne for both of us, Mauri and I made it happen. We got so many great images but since this sort of session tends to be a little more private, I wanted to share just a few images here on the blog. I had so much fun doing this session that I am now adding modern boudoir sessions as one of my portrait offerings. Email me if you're interested in scheduling one. I'm currently booked up for portraits through the end

Okay I know that in my last post I announced that I was going to attempt to blog every day until I got caught up...and I didn't. But this time it actually wasn't by choice. I helped my sister move into a new apartment this week and she doesn't have internet yet so I've been sponging off the neighbors as much as possible...sometimes I can jump online just long enough to download my emails but usually not long enough to actually respond to any of them. So instead I've been answering emails from my iPhone which is rather tedious. So blogging hasn't exactly been on the top of my priority list. But it seems that I have connected to someone's internet so I'm hoping it will last long enough to upload some pictures for a new blog post...finally. Because I'm super excited to bring this wedding to you. The wedding of

The last time I was in town (DC), I was thrilled to pieces to do a little mini portrait session with some of my favorite people in the whole world...The Hoffman Family. My best pal Kelly is knocked up with her 2nd baby, another girl due any day now. Since she went early with her first daughter, Payton, we never got around to doing the pregnancy portrait we had planned on. So this time we made sure it happened and used her guest room as a faux studio so that the portrait was just all about Kelly and her beautiful belly. And I'm so glad that we did. We also managed to grab a few pictures of Payton and even got Eric in on a few of them as well. Payton kept on pointing to Kelly's belly and stating claims like "MY BABY!" Sounds like she's excited to be a big

Okay I know I'm way way behind on my blogging but I'm going to make an attempt to blog almost every day until I catch up. So the first thing to share is Alex & Jim's gorgeous wedding which took place last month at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. My day started over at the Hotel Monaco with Alex. Just getting there was crazy because of all of the protests. You name it, someone was pissed off and protesting about it and literally right in front of the Monaco, just my luck. Even the valet was shut down because of all of the madness...and I almost ran some lady over with my car...didn't she know I was on my way somewhere very important? Anyway, after making it there in one piece, Kim and I got to spend the day was some really lovely people. Some of the talented artists/
