For as long as I can remember my family takes a week vacation at Rockaway Beach, Oregon each year in August. We had been going to the same cabin every year; I have many treasured memories there. The memories range from playing cards, cutting avocados (Yes, I have a specific memory of this), Philip proposing, and our […]

A romantic whimsical beach sunset session that took place on the Oregon Coast. Brad and Ray braved the cold wind for this session and the love they radiate is heart warming. This location is also very special to me. Rockaway Beach is a place that I’ve frequented over the years, from spontaneous day trips, to […]

Faux Wedding on the Potomac What could be lovelier than arriving at the wedding location in a flower festooned canoe. Robin and Marian enjoyed this canoe ride on the Potomac, under the Landmark Key Bridge in Georgetown, DC. The scene around them was serene but they had eyes only for each other. In the colorized versions I can […]

Meet Ben and Hannah. They are two wonderful people who are expecting the arrival of their first little one in less than a month. We met early in the morning to catch the sunrise for their maternity session. Hannah suggested doing the session at Meadowside Park in Rockville, the same park she and Ben had their […]

Maryland Surprise Proposal  Kye and Sue are engaged! Kye, with the help of his future sister-in-laws, planned a special proposal for Sue. When they asked me to photograph it I was thrilled. Narisa and I work together at Bethesda Country Club, so she kept me in the loop throughout the planning stages. Kye wanted to […]

Nick and Emily are pretty rad. I first met Nick at Bethesda Country Club, and shortly after I had the pleasure of meeting Emily. From the first time I met them I knew they were the sweetest couple. Nick told me his plan to propose to Emily while they were on a cruise in January, […]

Cheeburger Cheeburger does their burgers right. Combining selection and quality just the way you like it, with a build-a-burger menu that really dials it in. Starting with patties, which are quality made-to-order meats, you begin with selecting your size; ranging from 1/4 pounders to whopping 1 pounders and not excluding salmon/veggie/turkey options. Followed by your cheese, […]

Today I was asked “Do you go somewhere every day you have off?” The answer is mostly, “Yes”. I have found over the years that if I wait for life to slow down I’ll always be waiting. So, I take every chance I get to do what I love. As mentioned in last week’s post, […]

Three years ago at this time I was packing my bags for (what I thought was) a trip to North Carolina. Little did I know that the east coast would soon become my home. Looking back, I had no idea what God had in-store for us. We were celebrating six months of marriage, I was […]

Memorial day weekend was long so when Tuesday rolled around I strongly considered sleeping until the morning ended, laying around in my pajamas, and then doing absolutely nothing… Instead I woke up at 5:00am. Philip had to work at 6:00am, so it was an excuse to drive him to work. We stopped at Starbucks, said our […]
