Cherry Blossoms: Kate + Ben + Kids!

Kate and Ben and their kids showed up subtly color-coordinated for their cherry blossom shoot at a nearby park in Silver Spring, which was perfect. Their smiley little kids were particularly drawn to the attached playground, of course, but I managed to get some adorable shots of them hugging each other and with their parents. The little girl was all belly and smiles and their boy was energetic and hilarious. Here are a few from our sun-setting day just as the blossoms were beginning to peak and before the rainstorm of a weekend.

Baby boy!


Emily and Sean and their baby boy enjoyed a morning of photos in their impeccable Silver Spring home. I mean, sparkling impeccable. It’s like they had a newborn who couldn’t move around destroying half the house or something yet. For now, he lay around looking ornamentally cute on the floor and on their couch. Adorned by two loyal dogs, the family couldn’t have had a more picture-perfect holiday card. In the last shot, he was already napping soundly in his father’s arms.

Holiday: Stephanie and Jeff and the kids!



Stephanie and Jeff have two little people with two big personalities, and it was just a riot capturing their pictures. The big brother doesn’t like to admit that he really, deep down, loves his little sister. His sister, on the other hand, spent much of the photo shoot chasing him around trying to hug him to pieces. Stephanie opted for an urban look to the pictures so we met in downtown Silver Spring at the artsy Christmas tree and then to the new Silver Spring library. Here are a few shots from their session!

Holiday: Yasmin + Charlie + Baby


Well, hello there little Christmas ornament! And she was cute and priceless enough to be enough to decorate anyone’s living room for the holidays – and holiday card, which is what Yasmin and Charlie called me up to help them out with. We went around Sligo Creek park in Silver Spring on a beautiful fall afternoon, just before sunset, and got some great late-afternoon lighting that highlighted this adorable little child and lovely family. Yasmin taught me a wonderful phrase: “baby bling,” to describe those little headbands, and her baby wore some cute little booties that kept falling off. The three of them were so much fun to hang out with that afternoon, and I was lucky to get a lot of great takes from this patient little one. A few of my favorites, below.
