Baby Pictures: Penny Jane

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young

The Daymude Family

It was pure joy to take maternity pictures for some of my dearest friends and favorite people in the world, Chip and Kelly. Baby Daymude is the luckiest little kiddo to have such a beautiful, loving family. And Pongo is definitely excited to be a big brother! (Click on the first picture to scroll through.) 

Roshie in the Park

I really love working with fashion blogger Roshie Anne of AnneConventional.com. This was our second session together - a beautiful December day on Riverside Drive modeling workout looks and fitness practices. Roshie obviously is gorgeous and has great style, but what makes it such a pleasure to work with her is her infectious energy and enthusiasm. She is so bubbly and confident that you can't help but feel inspired just being around her! 

Elvis and Bea's DC Engagement

 

When two people you love very much invite you to DC for a weekend to celebrate their commitment to one another, it is a pretty awesome experience. Bea and Elvis, I am so excited for your next adventure and honored that you asked me to capture a bit of your love and happiness on camera. I'm thankful for our years of friendship and cannot wait for many more. Cheers to you both! 

Laura's Name

“People with the name Laura have a deep inner desire for travel and adventure, and want to set their own pace in life without being governed by tradition.”

This definition of my sister’s name is perfect for her. Laura deeply loves traveling and is down for any adventure. She marches to the beat of her own drum and is confident with who she is, and because of this shines a little brighter. I took this picture on a train in Boston last month, where we got to spend a few days catching up and exploring the city. It was wonderful to see my beautiful sister after being so many miles apart for the past year!

Juxtapositions

I am in love with the beautiful architecture in New York City. No matter what street you stumble down, there are guaranteed to be unique structures, carvings, and details. These are contrasted by trees and parks, modern amenities, and unfortunately trash. The city possesses continuous juxtapositions: old and new, pristine and grit, elegance and junk, wilderness and concrete. These pictures were all taken within a three block radius of my apartment, which just goes to show how much New York has to offer!
