anna + nat are wed!

Three days before the big day (aka hip surgery) I finished out my 2016 photo season with the wedding of Nat & Anna. After having a rainy engagement session, we were gifted with a beautiful day in PA/DE on a farm that has been owned by a member of Nat's family for...well, quite sometime. They got married with only their closest family in a tiny chapel (formerly a spring house) and I couldn't have imagined a better way to close out a season.

a mini stroll in the park

About two years ago, I had a family reach out about doing a mini-session at the National Cathedral. They had a new wee one, he wore a jacket with bear ears on the hood, and he was all smiles. Fast forward to this fall and I got the great opportunity to hang out with this family again (and wee one #2 who recently arrived). I love being able to see new family members join and to watch the littles grow up year after year.

jumping on the bed, family session

It seems like a crazy thing, in a city with a million and one picture perfect spots, but my favorite family sessions happen at home. It's so fun to be able to be part of a family routine that includes book reading, hot cocoa making, and jumping on the bed. So when this session came up, I was thrilled to spend an afternoon in Bloomingdale jumping up and down and twirling around (oh, and taking a few pictures).
