The Travis Family!

20 Oct

You may recognize these darling little girls from a previous photo session/blog post and I am so happy to that I am able share the newest images from our most recent session! In a way, I have watched these two curly haired cuties grow up in front of my camera. Rachel & Caitlin have transformed into young ladies that are even more dynamic and full of energy than when I first met them almost two years ago! I still have a giant grin on my face each time I am introduced to these two and their glorious green/blue eyes seems like they are made to be in front of a camera.

I met up with the Travis Family at Lake Anne in Reston on a particularly beautiful Fall afternoon. We played on all the abstract sculptures, said hello to “Bob” aka Robert E. Simon, and ran up and down paths, bridges, and turned the plaze into our makeshift playground. Mom, Dad, and Grandma were a part of the action and there were lots of hugs, kisses, and when all was said and done….a gum reward! I had such a fun day and hope to see these two beauties grow into young women!

Thank you so much Travis Family! In my opinion, you are one big, cute overload!

Happy First Birthday Trip!

17 Jun

I really can’t believe how big this sweet boy has grown! I was lucky enough to photograph the baby shower, Trip’s first few months of life, and just a few weeks ago….saw him turn ONE!

The Markmann family is amazing. Amanda is a designer and it comes through in everything she touches and  I adore her style. She can make a nursery look cool enough to be my own bedroom and Trip’s first birthday was no exception. Colorful mustaches were placed in beautiful cupcakes, party favors in bright boxes featured a little note featuring a funny little mustache, there were even fake mustaches for the guests to sport around the party. ADORABLE!

What I loved most about Trip’s birthday was that it celebrated family and giving back to help others. Instead of wrapped boxes in all shapes and sizes, a simple white and blue box sat proudly in the front hallway. In lieu of presents, Amanda had asked all of her guests to bring/donate their old cellphones to Hope Phones. Hope Phones is a not profit organization that provides phones to medical clinics in developing countries which gives families access to emergency medical care, health information, transport services, and clinic resources.

See! I told you the Markmann’s were super cool!!

Thank you so much Bill, Amanda, and of course…happy birthday Trip! I had such a fun day and think the world of you guys!

happy party goers!
