Cherry & Roosvelt Welcome Newborn Raylah!

I can’t remember a more photogenic family…they were all smiles and happiness, and we even got a few giggles out of Raylah! Congratulations Cherry and Roosvelt!

Millie, Mayank, and Kai welcome baby Erhi !

It’s giggle-filled playtime sessions like these that make me even more thankful to be a photographer - and you’ll see, I found my new assistant!

BONUS: we got to see Kai get up close and personal with his sister for the first time - very touching moments indeed.

DC Cherry Blossom Couple's Portraits

Donal and Fernanda are visiting DC from Ireland! Our session almost got rained out, but the sky turned a beautiful shade of blue just in time for them to dance and giggle their way around the cherry blossom trees. We even saw a precious mama duck with her ducklings.

Surprise Proposal at the Cherry Blossom Festival

On the edge of the Tidal Basin, Ryan proposed to Rachel this week during DC’s cherry blossom festival. They spent the rest of the afternoon strolling among the trees, getting swept away by floating blossoms, and celebrating their engagement. Congratulations!
