Katia’s Senior Photos | Sterling VA Milestone Photographer

So you know I’m behind on blogging, because this senior is now an official college freshman!

Dancing and George Mason University are two things close to my heart. Dancing, because I’ve done it since I was a child and George Mason University is my Alma mater.

We all know I’m more familiar with the younger end of the family spectrum.  I’m used to having to act super goofy for smiles or cooperation.  Senior Sessions are out of my box, but I had a blast taking Katia’s photos.  She is an incredibly talented Irish dancer and a smart, bright young lady.  I’m confident she will do well.

I enjoyed photographing Katia and the pace was a lot of fun, one that I could easily get used to doing on a more regular basis.

Best of luck to you Katia, I’m sure you’ll make your own mark at GMU. Keep those dancing shoes on!

[Houston Family] Snow Photos | Northern VA Photographer

Northern Virginia recently got close to 3 feet of snow in a 24 hour period.  That is a lot for our area.  Lucky for me and my family, we had the most perfectly timed vacation planned. We left a day before the snow started and missed it entirely.  I will spare you the details and won’t rub it in too much.

Facebook was showing me all of this epic snow and I had exactly zero envy for my friends back home shoveling.  I did worry I might miss out on the opportunity for snow photos, though!  I love to work in the snow.  It’s the most beautiful reflective surface and the most perfect, blankety backdrop all at the same time.

I connected with this sweet family and thought I would just be taking some family photos in the snow.  I had plans for my dad’s antique sled and a cute blanket scarf. Imagine my surprise when I noticed little Miss Melissa wiggling with dance moves in her photos.  I asked if she would like for me to take any dance photos of her and she happily obliged.  I loved every single bit of it.  So much fun.  Brother built the most epic snow-family of 3.  I took my son out to see it later and he gasped in admiration “Ohhhh woooowwwww!”  My little man loves snow men and was thrilled to see them.

I really enjoyed your session and hope I get to work with you all again!
