A few weeks ago on a trip to DC I was able to shoot some photos of The Backdrop Shop, an event design and decor company owned by my dear friends Brit and Emily. We spent a chilly spring morning first at the beautiful Eastern Market and later at Trohv (a must-see). I’d look at mirrors with these gals any day!
Last weekend I headed up to Morehead City to photograph Brittany for her senior portraits. We lucked out with a perfect three hour window in the midst of a weekend of otherwise terrible weather and shot some beautiful photographs at Fort Macon and around Carteret County. We couldn’t have asked for a calmer, bluer, ocean than we happened upon!
This weekend I had the pleasure of shoot senior portraits for my cousin, Anna. And even though she will always be the little girl in footie pajamas that I babysat many, many years ago, it was such a pleasure to spend the afternoon with her, basking in the adult that she has become. Watch out world, Anna Rosemond is coming for you!
Can you even believe that this little guy is 10 months old? I can’t! We had the pleasure of a visit from the Keffer Family last weekend, which meant that we got to take a few pictures of my dear Henry. We snapped a few shots among the turtles and alligators and giant ducks at Greenfield Lake, and I love the way they turned out. Henry has become such a sweet, expressive, lively baby; he’s a delight! Not to mention I was thrilled to be there when the Keffers experienced their first alligator in the wild!
This week we were lucky enough to have two of our close friends (and their sweet golden doodle Wednesday) visit us. On a perfect trip to Topsail Island we shot some quick portraits of the happy family and a ton of photos of Wednesday running the beach with our puppy Kaylee. This, having good friends come to stay, is easily the best thing about living on the ocean.
I’ve known Charlotte since the beginning of time (or since our first day at MICA when we were 18), and love her to death. When I was up in Baltimore for shoots last month she and her boyfriend Gordon graciously let me stay with them, something I hope to repay in the form of a free beach vacation (hey guys, Wilmington is awesome!). We snapped some family photos with their two dogs, Skip and Jackson, before I headed out, and I think they turned out adorably. It’s so wonderful to see your friends this happy.
I love meeting new clients through existing clients, it’s a wonderful passing-of-the-recommendation that makes me feel like I’m doing something right. I met Lacy through her brother, Walker, and his partner, Liv. Liv is the sister of my dear friend Brit, whose wedding we shot just a few weeks ago. Not long after the wedding Dan and I headed back up to Gettysburg to shoot Lacy’s senior portraits. It was a complete pleasure, she was a natural and took everything in stride- even when some tourists at the (haunted) Sachs Bridge started giving us advice on poses! Thanks Lacy, I’m thrilled with how these turned out. It’s shoots like this that prompt my sister Lauren to ask if we can go back and get a do-over on OUR senior portraits!
