In the realm of nature photography, few phenomena are as captivating as the elusive dance of fog. As a photographer who finds inspiration in the beauty of misty landscapes, I was delighted this morning when I awoke to a mesmerizing fog on Woodglen Lake.

Fog, is a suspension of water droplets or ice crystals in the air, that forms when the air becomes saturated with moisture and cools down. There are various ways fog can manifest, but one of the most common scenarios is when warm, moist air comes into contact with a cooler surface. This sudden cooling causes the moisture to condense into tiny water droplets, creating the veil-like phenomenon we know as fog.

The allure of fog lies in its ever-changing and dynamic nature. As a photographer, I am drawn to the challenge of capturing this beauty as it gracefully moves and evolves. Fog introduces an element of mystery, transforming familiar landscapes into dreamlike scenes before my eyes, blending the real with the surreal.

The still and partially frozen waters of the lake mirrored the hazy embrace of the fog, creating an almost otherworldly experience. One of the highlights of the morning was capturing the graceful silhouettes of geese sitting on the icy surface of the lake through the mist. I also really enjoy the way the mist softens the scene and the way it interacts with light. The interplay of light and dark hues, softened and diffused by the mist, results in a palette of subtle and harmonious tones. This blending of contrasting elements adds depth and dimension to the photographs, creating compositions that are both evocative and visually stunning. I could have sat by the lake all day enjoying the inspiration and beauty of this morning.

🎄Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year! I ❤️all of the family time and traditions the kids and I have made. One special time for my son Ben is picking out and cutting our Christmas tree down. He loves searching through the farm 🚜 to find the perfect one! I let the kids have the final say on which tree so we have had quite a few memorable ones 😂👍 Last year was our biggest tree at 10.1 feet. Thankfully a family with some teenagers helped us cut it and carry it down. It was exhausting trying to cut that one! We have also had some Charlie Brown trees when we went to a farm that didn’t have any trees that were worth cutting. Ben would not leave without one, so we cut down his favorite and gave it lots of love and decorations to hide all the holes. These memories are what we look back upon as the fun parts of family life. I’m so thankful for my little ones and all the joy they bring me. 💕🎄

Today, let's talk about wedding media. 🎥💕 Did you know that still photography and videography are two completely different medias? 🤔 As a photojournalistic photographer, I'm often asked, "Can you also take video?" Unfortunately, the answer is no. 🚫 But fear not, let me educate you about the differences between the two. Being an informed purchaser for your wedding is key!

👰🤵 When it comes to the timeless debate of photo vs. video, yes, they are both capturing the magic of your wedding day. So, it makes sense that couples think we can do both. 📷🎬 Your photographer creates gorgeous artistic still images, freezing moments in time, while your videographer immerses you in the sights and sounds of the day, capturing the motion and emotion of your day.

🤝✨ Finding a dream team that collaborates seamlessly is crucial. Your photographer and videographer work side by side capturing crucial wedding moments simultaneously. They should work well together and complement each other's work, ensuring a harmonious blend of visuals and storytelling. Take the time to peruse each vendor's portfolio and envision yourself in their work. Does it resonate with the way you want to remember your big day? Also ask if they have a preferred photographer or videographer they like to work with. Vendors referrals are a great resource for finding vendors for all parts of your wedding day!

💖 Remember, 📖✨ choose professionals whose style speaks to your heart, ensuring your wedding memories are a true reflection of your unique journey. 🌟

I hope this post finds you wrapped in the warmth of cozy sweaters and surrounded by the breathtaking colors of autumn. This was one of those picture-perfect fall days, and I had the joy of capturing some beautiful family moments that I can't wait to share with you!

Families are like the ever-changing leaves, each season bringing new growth and memories to cherish. This little guy stole my heart with those adorable cheeks and a head of hair that's just too cute for words.

As we approach Thanksgiving, my heart is full, not just with the anticipation of a hearty feast and pumpkin pie but with the sheer gratitude that this season inspires. There's something truly magical about the leaves crunching beneath your feet and the smell of cinnamon and spices in the air.

This time of year holds a special place in my heart. It's the time spent with loved ones, celebrating the simple joys of life. The laughter around the table, the warmth of shared stories, and the love that weaves through every gathering like pure magic.

I find myself reflecting on the beauty of being thankful for the people who enrich my life and bring smiles to my face. It's those small, seemingly ordinary moments that add sweetness to our everyday lives. A shared glance, a comforting hug, or a genuine smile—these are the threads that weave the fabric of our happiest memories.

Let me take a moment to express my thankfulness for my own little tribe. My children, with their charm, charisma, and innocent outlook on life, have a way of making every day extraordinary. Being their momma is a gift I treasure beyond words, and I thank God for entrusting me with these special souls to care for.

So, cheers to fall days filled with love, laughter, and the warmth of family. May your Thanksgiving be as bountiful as the love that surrounds you, and may you find joy in the small things that make life oh-so-sweet. 🍁💕

In the world of sports and beyond, Magic Johnson stands as a testament to the transformative power of dedication, resilience, and compassion. From his legendary basketball career to his impactful work in entrepreneurship and community healthcare, Magic continues to inspire generations. The photo shoot at the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum not only captured the essence of this iconic figure but also served as a reminder of the positive change that can be sparked by those who choose to use their influence for the greater good.

Bayer Global has named Bill Anderson their new CEO. This week I photographed a celebration in honor of Bill Anderson at the iconic US Botanical Gardens in Washington, D.C.

The US Botanical Gardens was established in 1820 and the gardens to date are nothing short of enchanting. The Orchid Room and Rose Garden are like chapters in a botanical history book, showcasing over 65,000 plants. Lush foliage turned this event into a captivating green oasis in the heart of the city. Everywhere you looked, bursts of colors and textures created a mesmerizing backdrop for Bayer's celebration of its new leadership.

Susan Gage Caters set the tone of the event with their décor, lighting, and menu which was nothing short of extraordinary. The elegance of the décor seamlessly blended with the natural beauty of the gardens, creating a unique atmosphere that was both sophisticated and celebratory. The carefully arranged lighting added rich colors and textures to the foliage.

Congratulations Bill Anderson on your new role at Bayer Corporation.

As the vibrant hues of fall painted the landscape with warm tones of red, orange, and gold, I had the pleasure of capturing a truly heartwarming family portrait session. This beautiful session celebrated the love of a mom and her daughters. The photos are filled with laughter, smiles, and the genuine essence of family bonds.

The ground was carpeted with fallen leaves, creating a natural, rustic backdrop that perfectly complemented the warmth of the family's connection. The genuine joy and love within this family radiated, creating an atmosphere of pure happiness. As a photographer, there's nothing more rewarding than capturing those candid moments of shared laughter and the bonds that tie a family together.

Now, let's talk "unity sandwich." After their ceremony, Nikka and Stephen gathered their guests for a truly unique moment. Each layer of this special sandwich, from the English muffin to the honey, symbolized a different aspect of their relationship. Their friend and officiant humorously discussed their varying preferences in peanut butter, with Nikka favoring all-natural and Stephen taking a different route. The officiant's words about compromise and acceptance, even in the realm of peanut butter, were a charming and relatable touch. See the full wedding story on my blog!

🍁Thinking about what colors 🌈 to wear for your fall family portrait session? 🍂 I recommend wearing neutral and jewel tones. They really make your family pop against the colorful fall leaves and skin tones look great. Be careful not to wear colors that are fluorescent or extremely bright. They tend to be distracting and draw the attention away from your beautiful faces. 😊😃😘 Loving this session I took yesterday at Green Spring Gardens. This sweet boy has the best hair and CHEEKS! What a ❤️breaker.

Thrilled to have had this incredible opportunity to meet and photograph Magic Johnson. He really is as kind and thoughtful as everyone says. I enjoyed hearing about his days in the NBA 🏀 and how he has been using his platform to help communities understand vaccines and receive better healthcare. He is a man of great character and worthy of being so many people’s hero.

Want to have a special moment with your soon-to-be spouse on your wedding day but do not want to do a first look? A first touch can be such a touching moment. Couples touch hands but are hidden behind a door or wall so they do not see each other. This sweet couple read letters to each other while they held hands. Truly a heartfelt moment!

Enjoying a relaxing lunch in Washington DC. I’ve been photographing their many eclectic spaces and it is inspiring! At every turn there is another room and something new to look at. The vibe is very funky-cool. Their outdoor dining area is such a surprise! Plenty of space, open air but protected from the elements. Plants climb the walls and spill out of the privacy planters. It’s a relaxing space to enjoy a bite when you are in the city.
