Portraits : Newborn Jenna Lynn

I had the pleasure of photographing Jenna Lynn a few short months ago, and I just have to say, she is one of the sweetest, happiest babies I've photographed.

Haute Boudoir : JJ

JJ is a wife, mother and recently celebrated her 40th birthday by doing something completely out of her element, a boudoir shoot.  There were a lot of nerves at first, but it didn't take long until the nervous laughter turned into confident smiles, and we created some great photos together that illustrate just what a sexy number 40 can be.

Real Wedding : Abby & Gabi

One of the great things about photographing weddings is the very intimate glimpse into other lives, cultures and traditions it provides. Abby and Gabi couldn't have been a more incredible couple to introduce us to our very first Orthodox Jewish Wedding. Despite being ridiculously hot and humid, with a heat index of 107 in the DC suburbs where family and friends gathered for their ceremonies, Abby & Gabi were perfectly cool, calm and collected, knowing that Sunday morning marked the beginning of an incredible journey together. 
 
Before the ceremony and traditions began, we snuck away outside of the Synagogue to capture the family portraits, and of course, a few of the adorable couple!
Another awesome advantage to being a husband and wife team is that you can split up. Nic hung with the guys during the groom's Tisch, while I stayed with the bride and documented the whirlwind of excitement leading up to the Bedecken. One of my favorite moments was when Gabi leaned toward Abby and whispered something very private in her ear. They were enveloped in a sea of cheering friends and family, but in that single moment, it was just the two of them, and it was such a beautiful thing to capture on film.
A little while later, the traditional ceremony took place. Despite spending all morning together for photos and the veiling, Gabi still got a little emotional watching Abby walk down the aisle.
 
The party starts at the end of the ceremony and from what we learned, doesn't stop throughout the entire reception!

when they are able to breathe forth their love for each other, 
o let their souls blend in a soft whisper..."

Haute Boudoir : Julianna

One of the things I love most about Haute Boudoir is giving women the opportunity to celebrate feeling beautiful, sexy and vibrant. After several children, the lovely Julianna decided there was no time like the present to surprise her husband with a gift he'd never forget.
