Busy Weekend! (Maternity, Fist Communion & Wedding!!)

Lets just say my weekend was non-stop! The following blog post is just a quick recap and a few sneak peak images!

Saturday I was all set to drive up to West Virginia to shoot maternity pictures of the fantastic Tiffany of LayneMarie Photography when I remembered that my neighbors daughter was having her first communion that afternoon! I went next door and offered to do a quick mini-session (and I do mean quick... like 10 minutes) of her in her beautiful dress before they ran off to church!

This is by far my favorite image:



And like I always do, I say... "I will have some images to show you in a few days!"

But what did I do? I ran inside and edited all the images and even made a quick slideshow... all before they got back from church!! What can I say? I just get so excited about my work. I love what I do and it is such a thrill that I get to earn a living doing what I am passionate about. It just never feels like work to me!

So later that afternoon I headed up to WV and OMG let me just say that was the most beautiful drive! I would drive up there any time just to see that beautiful country side. It is such a breath of fresh air compared to driving around here in the Northern Virginia / DC area.

Tiffany picked an adorable little park to shoot in and we had a great time! I got to meet her hubby & her two adorable kids! Also her sister-in-law / business partner / my friend Heather was along and did quite a bit of shooting as well. It was such a blast as well as an honor to shoot Tiffany! It is always such a giant compliment when another photographer asks you to photograph them.

Here are two sneak peak images for you:





Yes, we put a chaise on live tracks and made an very pregnant woman (only 3 weeks away from her due date) try and 'relax'! HAHA! Don't worry ladies I would never ask you to do something so crazy in a session unless we were sure everything was super safe!

I was super tired when I got home but I made sure to get plenty of rest because on Sunday I was second shooting for the amazing Jessica Del Vecchio up in Baltimore!

Sorry but you are going to have to wait on images from that one!! It was such a nice wedding and they had the most amazing floral arrangements I have seen in a long time!

All in all I clocked about 335 miles this weekend any yesterday morning I was so sore that even my fingers hurt!!

I love what I do! Can you tell?!
