Fall Mini Portrait Session | Craft/Phelps Family | McLean, VA Portrait Photographer

Matt and Sarah!!!! How many ways can I say I love these guys…. well, almost too many, so I won’t take up pages and pages with that! But trust me, Matt and Sarah are two people you want to know. And on top of their ultra awesomeness, they made one adorable and hilarious tiny human: Mason! With his coy smile and contagious giggling, Mason had me in stitches! Getting to photograph Sarah and Matt’s Bluemont vineyard wedding in 2008 was the highlight of my (at that time) budding photography career. So once again, getting this opportunity to hang out with them now as a family,  well, it was just pure joy for me!

Thank you Sarah and Matt for bringing Mason into the world, and to my mini sessions. He is one cool kid!



Fall Mini Portrait Session | Alvarez Family | McLean, VA Portrait Photographer


 Oh these two! I loved getting the opportunity to see my past wedding clients Mike and Christina during my mini session this October. Mike, an H-B Woodlawn alumnus (whoop whoop) planned this shoot as an anniversary gift for Christina. And of course I took our time together as an opportunity to pump Christina about her experiences selling her AMAZING handcrafted woodworking creations at shows around the NOVA/DC area. Christina’s creativity with wood is truly fantastic! If you find yourself in the market for handmade local workworking gift for your special someone, you NEED to check out her etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/cgurnham.

It was so awesome to see you guys, and I know that the many exciting adventures you have ahead of you will be truly phenomenal! Thank you for being a part of my mini session this year!

Another awesome mini portrait session! Along with seeing some of my past wedding clients, I was so excited to have a referral from good friend and event coordinator extraordinaire, Sara Bauleke from Bella Notte DC! Sara passed along our info to her good friend Maggie and that led to meeting this most adorable family! Maggie and Trevor’s daughter Hazel is just beautiful, and boy did she and our cat Russell strike up a fast and hilarious friendship!

Thank you so much for heading over the Cottage Maggie, Trevor, and Hazel!  It was awesome to have you all here  for my inaugural mini sessions! I loved meeting you all!
