Finally. FINALLY! The DC wedding is on our blog. Say hello to Blaine (I know!) and Michelle. They have both served in the United States military, and she is on active duty, as were so many of their wedding guests. They make me proud to be an American, and I’m so glad we got to skip across the pond (Atlantic) and shoot their incredible wedding. On a personal note, this trip to DC was deeply moving to both Keith and myself, as we felt the first pangs of homesickness the second we stepped off the plane into our homeland.
Question. What do you get when you cross a two-year-old who knows how to pose for the camera with Hyde Park in Autumn? The perfect family shoot, that’s what.
Oopsies, it’s been a while since we blogged some pictures. Let’s fix that, shall we?
For our 4th anniversary, we took a train to Paris! I actually made a solid effort not to trap myself behind my camera the entire time, so perhaps these photos are a somewhat different view of Paris. We only photographed what we thought was worth it, the rest we’ll save for postcards. Although, I wish I had photographed the food. Because it was amazing and now I really miss it.
Ladies and gentlemen, The Mona Lisa.
Aren’t the photos we love from our childhood the ones where we’re in our element? My personal fav is me playing dress up in my mother’s heels, with red nail polish and lipstick all over my face. Conrad likes the ones where I’m making a pouty face (that I apparently still make today), and I love the photo of him, all tuckered out in a sleeping face plant, tiny little sneakers in the air, on his family’s old couch. My brother loves the ones of him driving his big wheels (“big yellow car,” he loved that thing so much). Well, I went to a beautiful park in London with this family who are a year in to a 3 year stay here.
So I hope this little guy grows up and loves these photos at his park in London. I hope he always remembers the wooden sandbox train and the snail bench. I hope he never forgets riding around London on his scooter with his Union Jack backpack, and I hope he loves all these little faces.
This is our very first family photo shoot across the pond, in Surrey, UK. These are my (Megan’s) cousins, and we went out for a delightful morning walk to the park for some pictures. The lighting in this country? A photographer’s dream.
