Couple’s Boudoir | Washington, DC

Couple’s Boudoir

I was so proud of these two, it’s not easy to bear all in front of the camera, especially for the fellas but these two were fabulous!  And while the outcome is sexy, getting there isn’t as easy as it looks…. it’s a lot of turn this way so the light hits you just right, ok, stop, go back to that position, move your head oh so slightly, let me fix your hair, stick out your buns more, wait, let me adjust your ring.  It’s a lot of talking and not a lot of doing.

Boudoir sessions are so different from all of our other ones, it’s lots more posing and studying the light on each part of the body as opposed to capturing emotion and relationships.  This one was even harder as it was night time so we had to make all of our own light instead of manipulating window light.  It was so much fun and challenging, I want to do it again!!

It was fun to show them the images as they had no idea what I was capturing and once he saw some he was much more open and comfortable.  It was something they have been wanting to do for a long time but just now decided to do after 10 years of marriage!  They both said they enjoyed it, were happy they did it and can’t wait to have them printed!!

If you have been thinking about a sassybuns session alone or with your shuggie, there is no time like the present!!

Sanctuary Vineyards

Outer Banks Holiday Portraits

It was a beautiful morning for our shoot at Sanctuary Vineyards, thankfully a warm and slightly overcast day, perfect for the little tunas!

The Kershner family never ceases to amaze me, so incredibly smart and witty and up for anything anytime!  She says she’s OCD and I believe her only after seeing how clean her car is.  She loves anything different and funny and her hubby Benable is hilarious.  Their little boy, Max, is convinced that Ben helps Mr. John at the winery everyday, even though he is a doctor in VA.  Rather funny.

Launa Jane is so sweet, smiles non stop and will go and do whenever and wherever.  She’s even sleeping through the night at 2 months old, unbelievable!!  I am ready to adopt or steal her, as I don’t think they will give her up.  Especially Max who adores her.  He lights up when he gets to hold and love on her, she’s so lucky to grow up being the little sis with her big bro to look after her!

I love that they all wore footie PJs with butt flaps!!

Asheville Portraits | PB + J

Asheville Portraits

Even though I went to school in Boone, NC, I have never been to Asheville, NC.  This was my first time and although I was nervous that it was going to be snowing and super cold, everything about our time there was perfect!

John found an adorable cabin between Marshall and Mars Hill on a farm with sheep, goats, cows, pigs, chickens on a mountainside with snow, it was absolute heaven!  We took these as soon as we pulled up after 9 hours in the car with the kiddos, Poppy was thrilled to be out playing and Peaches was super ready for a nap.

Poppy got to hike, climb trees and even milk a cow, which was much harder than we expected!  I love traveling with these three, it’s an incredible day, no matter what the moods, to be able to spend an entire day getting to know each other and teaching one another different things.  Poppy really pushes herself and ask so many questions during our travels, I love that John has the knowledge and patience to answer each one of them thoughtfully.  I try but often times I just don’t have the answers!

Mars & Dars make the cutest little tunas!  I love going to the park around the corner from their home in Charlotte, NC. It’s huge and there are so many gorgeous colors and locations to go play!  Last year she was pregnant with Oliver, it was so fun to meet him and see their family complete.  Sweet little Lillian was a trooper even though when they got home, she had a fever and strep throat!  Oliver and Elliott had fun playing outside before the rain came, picking up sticks and running through the grass!

Baby Beach Portraits | Peaches & Pops

Carova

Baby Beach Portraits

We had the best day off in Carova yesterday, it was the most beautiful fall day and we ran into so many friends from down South who were up enjoying the empty beaches as well! It is almost November but warm enough the kids could run around naked and play in the tide pools, love days like that!

Since Peaches arrived and I have been carrying her in the Ergo, Poppy has been trying to carry her baby dolls in it as well.  Since she loved it so much we ordered her one just her size for her stuffies and of course, she has loved putting Peaches in it as well.  She’s such a little mama!

Peaches is 3 months old, it’s hard to believe! She has changed so much in such a short amount of time!  She can push up, roll from her tummy to her back and loves to smile and coo at us!  She is quite fond of Mavis and Juicy as well.
