Meet Mattea

Baby Mattea was just 2 weeks old when I met her last Sunday for her debut photo shoot (see the maternity photo shoot I did with her family in November...)

We had fun posing her with lots of accessories, and discovered that she loves bean bag chairs. She fell right asleep when we snuggled her in the bean bag. Congrats, Deb and Jay!











 

Erin and Tai

Erin and Tai were married in the spring in a small, private ceremony. A few weeks ago they celebrated with extended family and friends with a big reception in Winchester, Virginia. I drove out to capture the day in photos for them. This was my first time in Winchester and it was beautiful!

Tai is from Fiji, and he and his family prepared a traditional dish of meat, fish and vegetables cooked underground for several hours...yum. Things got really interesting later in the evening when his friends and family took off their shirts and started performing traditional warrior chants from Fiji, Hawaii, New Zealand. It was awesome!

It was a beautiful day with amazing food, music and dancing. Congrats, Erin and Tai!









The Ferrara Family

I spent Saturday morning with the Ferraras! Baby Isaac is five months old and so cute, with a big bald head and big 'ole eyes. Isabella is two and full of sass and personality. I've photographed the Ferraras several times before. The kids just keep getting cuter and cuter.

















 

4th Annual Beth Whiteacre Memorial Golf Tournament

I sponsored the 4th Annual Beth Whiteacre Memorial Golf Tournament on Friday, September 16, 2011 at the Laurel Hill Golf Club in Lorton, Virginia.  This was my first time EVER on a golf course! I volunteered my services to take photos of the tournament and the reception and auction after the tournament.

The tournament was held to raise money for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and LUNGevity. My colleague Allen Whiteacre hosted it in honor of his late wife, Beth Whiteacre. The day was a smashing success--everyone had a great time golfing, the weather was perfect, there was a keg of Dogfish Head Punkin Ale on hole #8 and Rocklands BBQ and Georgetown Cupcake treats to eat after the tournament.

The link to the photo gallery is here.  In support of the charity, half of the proceeds from any prints or digital files ordered will go the Beth Whiteacre Memorial Fund. I have two options for digital files: you can purchase a low-resolution file with a license that allows you unlimited posting on the web (e.g., your blog, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.), or you can purchase a high-resolution file with a royalty-free personal use license that allows you to make your own prints or post it on the web. I also offer some really unique products in addition to standard prints and mugs. Check out these fun golf-themed products:
