i can not wait for lauren + allen’s spring wedding! we had so much fun walking around georgetown on a beautiful fall day — chatting, laughing, and getting pumped for their april wedding. lauren + allen got engaged in georgetown and we spent some time in the same spot where allen asked the big question, ate the same cupcakes they snacked on before they got engaged, and it was so sweet hearing their engagement story and really seeing all the special parts of it. the way these two look at each other, look up to each other, adore each other… i can’t wait to see them become husband and wife. they are just perfect for one another! it’s going to be an amazing day! xo

these people are, hands down, the sweetest people in the universe. each fall, kristen and i take family photos for each other and it’s always so much fun. sometimes as photographers we forget how it feels to be in front of the camera, and it’s pretty hilarious how chaotic everything seems when you’re getting family photos taken. but what’s what’s cool is how amazing it is to watch time stand still in the images and realize all the love that’s constantly being shared, no matter how wild it seems. it’s such a beautiful thing. i couldn’t love this family more and it was an honor to take these photos, as always. also kristen let me take a roll of film, so there were some film shots sprinkled in there too. she totally set it up for me so that all i had to do was shoot, but man, that was fun. and it felt like christmas waiting for the scans to come in! i’m on the fence at the moment about buying a film camera, and this may have just pushed me over the edge…

love you all so much! xo

this was honestly my favorite family session of all time. erin, will, and the kids take family runs almost daily. they found this amazing spot and it’s been a summer favorite — so many special memories for them have been created here, so it only felt natural to do their family session at their favorite spot. you could tell the kids were right at home playing in the creek and picking wildflowers… seriously, A DREAM. there is nothing i love more than to photograph a family in a beautiful place in nature that holds meaning and memories — my very favorite! also, i love erin and if you haven’t checked out her video work, please do! we do a yearly family video with her and it’s one of our greatest treasures. she is a talented artist and a sweet, sweet soul. i feel so lucky to get to witness this family’s love in action. all my love! xo
