I shot Sarah and Eric's Engagement Session while I was in Texas. Sarah's grandma is my great aunt, so we are cousins I think. Even though we did not grow up together I remember how Aunt Chris would always refer to Sarah and her sister "Little Laura and Lisa". My grandma was always sick when I was growing up and Aunt Chris was often coming in town and we sat around the ICU waiting room. I am sure it wasn't really all the time but as a kid it felt like ALL the time. I actually just got an old clock from my parents that was from an old hospital waiting room. I wanted it because it reminds me sitting in a waiting room bored to tears just waiting for either Aunt Chris or Aunt Katherine to show up so there was something to do. She always brightened up the day. She was always dressed so pretty and she treated Lisa and I like her own grand-kids. We would always get $1 if our room was clean. Now she sends Kate and Will $5 in the mail from time to time and writes for them to clean their room. So all of that to say I adore Sarah and her Grandma. I can't wait for their wedding this summer. I am excited to photograph Sarah and Eric get married but also Aunt Chris and Sarah's Uncle (my mom's cousin) Pat. He was in a motorcycle accident many years ago and lives at Brookwood Community. The wedding will be there and that is so sweet to me.

This past weekend I met up with Laurel and Chris downtown in Clarksville to do their Engagement session. It was SO cold! We did not know it was going to be 34 and cloudy. It was supposed to be 45 and sunny. Oh well, Laurel was only in town for the weekend so we went with it. Laughing helped to stay a little warm. We started off on Franklin and 2nd, then did a few in front of the Roxy Theater. After that we just explored and had fun. They are getting married next month and I am so excited to shoot a Wedding in Clarksville finally.

Meet Tiffany and Derek. They are getting married next month here in Virginia. They met in high school, went on their own way and life has now brought them back to each other and they are getting married. I am excited for their wedding and to meet their whole family. I am totally loving Spring right now!

Paola and Tucker met me on what felt like the coldest morning ever! it was 21 with a wind chill of 16 or so. It was COLD! A little red wine and cuddling in a tent warmed them up a bit. There was still snow on the ground from the blizzard a few weeks ago but we had fun. Paola and Tucker are so darn cute, they have so much love it just gleams out. This shoot makes me so happy. And if you know how much I don't like winter that is saying something! I am loving my first shoot of 2010!

Jennifer makes me smile. I can not look at her pictures and not smile! Jennifer and Jason live and met here in DC but went to Texas A&M. They are getting married down in Houston and my friend Ashley K is doing their wedding photography. They wanted engagement pictures up here so Ashley told them to call me. I am so glad they did because they are such a fun couple to be around. So Jennifer and Jason here are some of my favorites!
