Sanctuary Vineyards | Engagement Portraits

Charles hearts Ashley

Sanctuary Vineyards

These two are absolute naturals in front of the camera, they make me think they are this adorable together all the time even when they aren’t being photographed!  They have the best smiles and awesome chemistry and are willing to try anything!  We had a ball running around Sanctuary Vineyards and the weather and colors couldn’t have been more perfect.

Family Portraits in Washington, DC | Quinteros

 

Family Portraits in Washington, DC

I usually get to photograph these 4 during the summer on the Outer Banks.  This year we missed each other so we shot at their gorgeous home near Washington, DC.  Although it was 25 degrees outside they were happy to run out and play and the kiddos did so well! I love the tan wispy grass behind them, it was the perfect backdrop for their outfits and time of year!

It was great to be able to photograph them at their home and in their space although they are little beach babies!

Sanctuary Vineyards Engagement Portraits | Marc hearts Rachel

I called Rachel 20 minutes before they were supposed to arrive, “It’s raining!!!” Not hard but a nice drizzle.  Blargh.  She said, “No worries! Let’s go for it!” Once they arrived it stopped raining and the rain held off until right after we finished!  What a fabulous birthday present to two hardworking lovebugs!!

Marc’s super handsome and oh so sweet kiddos came to play too, we got some fun family portraits, tons of the Marc and Rachel and lots of just the boys.

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!!

Outer Banks Holiday Portraits | Kershners

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!!
