Whenever I fly back to DC to shoot a wedding I manage to squeeze in all sorts of portrait sessions. Sometimes it's the new baby of one of my past wedding couples, or a growing family I've been shooting for years. Very often it's an engagement session for one of my upcoming weddings since I am still shooting weddings from coast to coast.

I have known Alison since 2007(ish) I suppose when she booked me to photograph her daughter Zoe's bat mitzvah in 2008. One of my favorite things about this job is the fact that I get to work with the same families for multiple occasions over the course of many years.
