So we needed to pull together a fab business card and photographs were a must!

love this! ;)

Not everybody would get excited about having their living room sofa moved to their backyard because of a bright idea/vision! Only Kathy.... who also reads to her doll heads :) hahaha

How lucky am I to have this fun loving, gifted colleague only two doors down from me 9-5! She's my number 1 pick me up day in/day out!

The business card created.
I absolutely couldn't leave out Rocky, who hung with us throughout the shoot
AND smiled for the camera too!

White Family Photo Shoot

What a wonderful day it was to be in Hewlett, VA! When approached by a fellow colleague of mine to photograph her beautiful family, I jumped at the opportunity! I knew she had some major cutie kids! But I also knew what a treat it would be to visit her community.
What a gorgeous farming area and backdrop
for photographs of this absolutely beautiful family.
I asked them if they knew how lucky they were...
and Cada, the littlest one, (only 2) said "lucky, lucky!"

Jordan Family Photo Shoot

I so enjoyed meeting and photographing this beautiful family!
Their first child Maya is 5 weeks old. And what a beauty she is!!!
I was getting so many smiles from just a tiny little tot.
And, I couldn't get over how photogenic their four legged babies are too.

Check out these dogs... how regal!

I love this picture.... Maya looks like she's saying "oh whatever" :)
