brown eyes… ~ virginia photographer April 29, 2009   

This little brown eyed boy just recently turned one!!  He is just too cute for words!  And I must say this beautiful family was a group of troopers as it was VERY HOT on the day of this shoot!  I sure am glad they endured the heat–as I couldn’t be more pleased with the results…

  fun family ~ Virginia Photographer    

I really enjoyed working with this family!  They reminded me a lot of my own family–so needless to say I felt an instant connection!  Aren’t they a nice looking bunch!    This was actually a birthday gift for the beautiful red head from her hubby–I love it when I get a call from a husband–so darn sweet!! Unfortunately, there were two missing from the group–maybe we can get them all together next time!

This was one of the last shots I took–and I am pretty sure he was wondering if I was ever going to leave or if I was taking up permanent residence at their home!  I do have a tendency to stick around for a while!

  bridal babe ~ Washington DC Photographer April 13, 2009   

I had so much fun hanging out with this beautiful bride!!  I love it when people get me and my style–and she totally does!  And can you say va va VOOM–Isn’t she incredibly sexy and gorgeous??? And look at those shoes!!

http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/kelly_10blog.jpg

F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S veil–so fun and vintage!!

http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/kelly_9blog.jpg

This was a fun shot…the bride actually saw the sign and said it would be funny for her to stand under it to give to future hubby–well, I thought, why not see if we can take it down and actually hold it!!  And sure enough…I like to tell my clients that I will risk getting arrested for a good shot–they just need to be willing to bail me out so we can finish the shoot!!  Totally worth it if you ask me!
