Hockensmith Family Studio Portraits

Jason and I remember meeting baby Layla for the first time at Artemis and Seth’s wedding last October in Tyson’s Corner.  I distinctly recall having to forcibly pull myself away from Layla from fear that I was taking too many pictures of her.  But…, I mean look at her.  Cute!! You just want to eat her up.  We were so thrilled to hear from the Hockensmith family.  We had actually scheduled a studio session in late December, but it was the weekend of the great snow.  The awesome two footer that had us trapped inside our home for 4 days.  Last week we all got together and had a little fun in house.  Mr. and Mrs. Hockensmith, if you ever need a babysitter, just call me.

Prairie Family Portraits

You may have remembered Jon and Lori’s beautiful Korean wedding that we photographed last year in May.  Through Jon and Lori we met John and Nicole.  Nicole was  one of Lori’s bridesmaids.  Jason and I got to spend the weekend with the four of them, along with John and Nicole’s doggies, Bangkok and Bijan.  Bangkok is an adorable white Shih tzu, and Bijan is a Brussels Griffon (I want to get one so bad… Jason says maybe…).  We took their family portraits at a park in Georgetown on a lovely fall morning.  Keep a look out for more pics of them coming up in March when they come to visit Charlottesville for springtime portraits!

The Powell Family – Staunton, VA

Jason and I spent an entire Sunday with Jeff, Melanie and Cameron at their home in Waynesboro.  Their dog Bailey joined in the fun as well!  Much of the focus was on Jeff and Melanie’s adorable son Cameron, whom they’ve adopted from Guatemala.  Cameron took an instant liking to Jason, pelting him with his favorite stuffed animals and toys!  I think the cutest moment was after our shoot when we all went out to dinner.  Cameron was so exhausted from all the day’s excitement that he could barely stay awake while eating.  We kept thinking that he was just going to pass out, but he ate his entire meal!

I also want to mention that Jeff is a phenomenal DJ.  He spins with another great friend of ours, DJ Ducktape.  Together they are the Duck Brothers, and I highly suggest you catch them when they are performing around town.

The Ahn Family – Boar’s Head Inn – Charlottesville, VA

Jason and I spent Sunday afternoon with the Ahn family in and around their beautiful neighborhood nestled  behind the Boar’s Head Inn.  Mr. and Mrs. Ahn’s eldest daughter, Rachel will be graduating from St. Anne’s-Belfield School this year, and I was so happy to capture her senior portraits along with portraits of the whole family.
