Say hello to Mr. Bradey, or "baby brother" as he's known in the family. I've been working with Leslie and Matt since Connor "big brother" was about this size. Every few months we meet to do a session, and these kids just keep getting cuter. We've worked at the old studio in Mt. Pleasant, in Rock Creek Park, at the Lincoln Memorial, and now here at my home in Silver Spring. I love working with this family. They're really laid back and the kids are just the best. Little Bradey, when I picked him up, hugged me like a koala bear. The softest, strongest little baby grip you can imagine. You gotta love that.
Baby brother Bradey was in the basket...
So of course big brother needed to get in as well :)
Connor was into the session, most of the time. Then got tired of it. Then apparently he was back into it, as he said to his mom "I have to do my picture taking", and walked into the kitchen. So I shot a few at the kitchen table...some of my favorites.

Loved working with Tobie and her family. She comes to me from Allan Woods Flowers, a corporate client of mine, but on this occasion we worked on a personal level - so lovely.

I love working with the Lull family - their little boys are so, so sweet. This newborn session we did at their home (on their dining room table :).

One of my regular family clients came to me with a unique request: "our 10 year old daughter wants to have a fashion shoot birthday party. I was wondering if you would be willing to be the photographer?" We talked about a plan, and arranged for me to come by with a backdrop and lights on Sunday night.
When I arrived, it was like I was going to a sleepover! Lots of bowls of candy and chips, a tray of soda and water, and the girls getting ready for their shoot by braiding each others hair. And of course, lots and lots of pop music. These girls were so fun...a few from their "fashion shoot"!
More than a few photobombs took place

At the glorious Brookside Gardens here in Silver Spring, I met up with Mike, Sara and kiddos Kieran and Devon to capture their family in action. Let me first post a disclaimer here that these are images from the fall. I'm super behind on posting images from my sessions, and haven't come close to getting all (I'd say not even 5%) of my shoots on my blog. But, I'm hoping to catch up with the back log (a girl can dream, yes?)
So back to the fam...how much fun we had! Sara brought some great props, and the kids brought some great energy. In the end, it was just a sweet day in the park.
