  beautiful stationary April 20, 2011   

If you are in need of stunning stationary–Christmas cards, baby announcements, wedding invitations, or logo design or branding, be sure to get in touch with Erika Jack.  She. is. fabulous.  I’ve so enjoyed working with her on the scout guide (volume 3 came out last week!!)  Her work speaks for itself, so I will let it.  Enjoy!

Loved working with this adorable kiddos!  They kept me busy–and we got some great shots!  Look at this sweet little peanut — yes, she was as sweet as she looks!   After the terrible weather we had this weekend, I was afraid we wouldn’t be able to shoot–but, yesterday turned out to be beautiful!!

  sweet girls with curls and their adorable little brother April 15, 2011   

Loved working with this family!  I haven’t worked with these sweet girls since they were just little babies, so it was fun to see how much they’ve grown!  I am looking forward to working with them again this fall–mom won a styled shoot contest on facebook–can’t wait to see what we create!

We started out at Mt. Vernon–Mr. George Washington’s house!  So fun, I’ve never done a shoot there before.  Thankfully the weather cooperated–and the kiddos were all amazing!!

  beautiful boys    

Hellooooo world!  Wow, it’s been a while!  I know people have been waiting to see their pix on the blog–but life has not let me post much lately.  I’ve been sick and then sick again, traveling and then traveling some more and working, working, working!  But, I am feeling better now and have so much to post, so stay tuned!

I enjoyed working with this family for this little guy’s 6 month session.  My how he has grown–lots of cuteness and rolls to capture!
