Spring Round-Up

I want to love spring! It’s true. I like the idea of spring. But my runny, red, and sad nose just can’t get on board. At least the coming of spring means Rita’s is open, and I can ask Kealan if we can go get gelati every twenty minutes. He says yes at least 20% of the time.

Round-up time!

We ate at some of our favorite places – Sabrina’s, and DC’s Founding Farmers. Farmers, we miss you SO much up here. Please bring your fried chicken salad to Philadelphia. Please.

We celebrated our friend (and former ADP bride!) Carolyn’s birthday at Frankford Hall, and everyone except me donned mustaches because true confessions: stickers give me major heebie jeebies.

‘Tis the season for showers! One baby, two bridal.

Jeff + Alex’s wedding is next month and I am molto excited :) I think Jeff is planning on wearing those fur feet, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

I tried to get pictures with him when we were out adventuring with Kealan, but it was mostly embarrassing for me (and him, apparently).

Shower season also means wedding season! My wedding season as a photographer starts SOON! But first, I got to start the season as a guest and a MOH :) First, Sara + Elijah:

Second, lady Becca and mister Chris. Cue: heart explosion.

My co-MOH and the best man were pretty pleased with our car decorating prowess. Definitely had to look up how to spell prowess.

We met at a friend of Valerie’s family’s property in Media, which was 12 acres of forest beauty.

Holly + Michael \\ Meridian Hill Park \\ Washington, DC Couples Session

Miss Holly and I have officially been friends for almost a decade, meaning that our friendship is as old as Mean Girls and The Notebook, which seems very important. It’s also been a year and a half since their last portrait session, so it seemed about time for another shoot while I was visiting Maryland :)

Wish I could say these laughs were from my awesome jokes, but a man drove by 3 seconds before yelling, “THAT’S A NICE PIC HOMEBOY.” Maybe I’ll just bring him along to all my shoots :)
