Families are traditionally brought together by the holidays, and that was the case for the Kasprzak family. Pat and Dan, and their two younger children, Katie and Daniel, came up to DC to visit their eldest daughter, Lauren, and her husband Jason. While the whole gang was in town, the kids decided to schedule a family photo session as a gift to their parents. Though the weather was chilly, we had a warm and fun time around the Capitol, capturing family photos.
Plus, Pat had just thrown her hat in the proverbial electoral ring for the 36th congressional district in Texas! So, we took the opportunity to capture a couple of headshots while we were at it.
Take that, wintry weather!

Oh man. I’m so excited to share this session. Jarret and Kaylie make a smolderingly hot couple, and their goofy and fun personalities make them a joy to be around. Jarrett kept singing silly tunes and cracking jokes, and Kaylie rolled with the punches. They were high school sweethearts, and now they’ve been married for almost two years. Young love. *le sigh*
Anyway, back to how our paths crossed. Jarrett is in the Navy, and since they’ll only be stationed here in DC for a few more months they knew they wanted very “DC” photos for their holiday card. I think we captured exactly that with a super fun flair. Wouldn’t you agree?

These three make my heart melt. And that’s all I have to say about that. ;)
Ok, I guess I have a bit more to say… I’m just oh so very glad I got to work with the Nushi family to capture their holiday card photos. And I get to work with them again in the spring! Yipee!! Keep your eyes peeled for more of this precious threesome when the cherry blossoms peak out.

Ohhhh my! Hold on to your hats, folks, ’cause this session is just about too cute to handle. Little newborn baby Luke and his parents were snuggled in at home when I arrived at their door freezing cold from the wintry weather. But boy did their welcoming warmth and holiday spirit warm me up quickly! Do you not agree that sleepy little Luke is just about the cutest Christmas present you ever did see?

These two sweethearts hired me to capture their holiday card photos. I loved SO many of the images we captured, but I really adore the joy in the ones involving leaves. Sarah and James come from South Carolina, where they didn’t have much in the way of fall leaves, so they had a ton of fun playing in the ones around the Capitol grounds. It also doesn’t hurt that they are such a handsome couple!

The Horwaths just moved from Nashville to DC! Wisely, they didn’t want to let the big move away from their Tennessee family photographer keep them from getting family Christmas photos and 9-month-old portraits of their littlest one. So we gathered at the Lincoln Memorial to capture both.
After the family portion of the session, the funniest thing I’ve experienced professionally happened. As I snapped frame after frame of baby Austin’s adorable little face, several groups of tourists walked by and ALL of the ladies oooooo-ed and ahhhhh-ed while stopping to take their own photos of Austin. It became so loud and hilarious that his mom took video of the crowd that had gathered.
Honestly, I can’t say I blame the ladies for being so in love! Can you?

I just love getting to work with clients year after year, and young families are some of my favorites. There’s something so fun about watching the little ones grow up in front of my camera over time… not to mention having the privilege to watch as new wee ones are added to the family unit.
The Dickinsons have become one of my favorites to work with. This is the second year I’ve gotten to take their family’s holiday card photos, and this year they chose the Capitol as their backdrop. We had a blast playing on the Capitol grounds and capturing a few family moments. Cutie pies, all three:

This has to be one of the most fun proposals I’ve ever seen. Kartik hired me to spend the day with him and his bride-to-be on the day he proposed. On a gorgeous fall day, Rathna said “Yes!” on the top of a high-rise office building directly behind the White House with stunning views of the city.
Unbeknown to Rathna, that wasn’t where the day ended.
They both enjoy doing goofy new activities, and one of the things both Rathna and Kartik love is Bollywood movies. (Adorable, right?!) So, Kartik followed up the stunning private rooftop proposal with a segway tour of DC, ending at the FDR Memorial where Kartik and Rathna’s closest friends and family surprised Rathna with a Bollywood flashmob!
The joy of the day was palpable, and it was a truly amazing day to document! See for yourself:

Adeline’s mom asked me to capture some playful, lifestyle photos of her daughter to give to her husband for Christmas. I just LOVED this idea and immediately agreed. I met them in their U Street row house and got to play with Adeline for a couple of hours. She’s such a little cutie! I’m pretty sure her daddy is going to love his Christmas surprise.

Marc and Nada are expecting their first baby in December! We spent a morning near their home on the National Harbor capturing this moment in their lives before they welcome a new family member. We even stopped in on the spot where they said “I do” to get some pictures of this next monumental moment in their lives. Can’t wait to meet baby Aliyah in a month!
