How many of you had your maternity photos taken in the middle of a winter storm? Ok, so it wasn't much of a storm...

Anyway, the fallen snow and misty afternoon made for a great backdrop for this session! I wonder who this happy couple is???

Rainy, New Year's Eve weddings are my new favorite thing! Rachael and Luke embraced the rainy weather and took so many great shots. It was so hard to narrow this post down to just a few shots, so I didn't even try. Here are a bunch of my favorites, and I could've posted a whole lot more. Congratulations Rachael and Luke!!

I had a not-so-typical request this week to Photoshop someone into a family photo from Disney. The original photos were low resolution (72 DPI), so the final product isn't a super clean image. I'm still pretty happy with how the final product turned out.

"Pop-Pop" was missing from the group photo with Goofy, and the family wanted me to add him to the mix. Fortunately, the lighting conditions were the same for both photos, so I figured I had a decent shot at pulling it off. The biggest challenges were the fact that the only place that made sense to add him was on the side of the group that was opposite of the side that he was standing in the original photo and the fact that his legs below the knees were cropped out.

Anyway, what do you think?

I'm finally getting to post a sneak peek from the last of three family sessions last weekend. I was so happy that the Mazzocco family contacted me again this year so I could help them introduce Tyler to the world! Mason and Connor were such proud big brothers. While I was there, I found out that the Ashburn bear was spotted behind their home. Thankfully, he was camera shy on Sunday!

The second of my two shoots from last Saturday was the third time that I've had the honor of taking the Laminack family's photos. Asher was about 6 months old for our first family session, and it's been so cool watching him grow over these last two years. I'm so glad that they contacted me again this year. Mackenzie, Jeremy and Asher take such great photos - they make me look good too!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm so thankful for all of the clients and friends who've trusted me with capturing important moments that make lifelong memories. It's so cool to play just a small part in helping families tell the stories of their lives. I also want to thank Irum because I could t do this without her. She is a huge help during newborn shoots and she’s patient enough to let me spend time editing photos in between work, photo shoots, practices and games.

2018 has been another fun and full year for the Le family. I coached 5 different baseball teams, 2 basketball teams and somehow will manage to see close to 30 photography clients by year's end. I'm not sure how we do it. Of course, Fall is the busiest time for photographers, and I had 4 photo shoots in the last 5 days. I'm a little behind in posting my "sneak peeks" so be prepared to see a flurry of them over the holiday weekend.

This first sneak peek is from the Fitzsimmons family. Thanks so much for inviting me into your new home and for choosing me to help you share this moment with your friends and family! Ps. I want to convert your front room into my permanent photography studio. The lighting is great! Congratulations on your new home and welcome to the neighborhood!

It was cold and windy on Saturday afternoon, but the Joyce family toughed it out and we captured some great images. I'm so glad we were able to fit this session in before all of the Autumn color disappears.

I had not had a photo session at the old farm since last Fall. When we arrived on Saturday afternoon I was surprised to see that the barns have been torn down. Nevertheless, the place is still just as beautiful as you'll see in this sneak peek of the Libeau family session. So many great images!

Sometimes last minute postponements work out great! When this Saturday evening opened up, I was able to fit in this maternity session at One Loudoun​. I'm so excited to be taking newborn photos for Priyanka and Sid next month. Here are some of my favorites from last night's session.

I’ve been on vacation this week in Oak Island, NC. It wasn’t a great week weather-wise for shooting the stars. Tonight was the clearest night we had all week, but there was enough cloud cover to get in the way of my annual Milky Way selfie. Here’s a quick edit from my lightroom mobile app.
