Yoga Heights: March Shoot in the District

Another day, another shoot for my fabulous client Yoga Heights.

Earlier this spring, I had the opportunity to snap these fun, colorful pictures of the current Yoga Teacher Training group in action. The result? More colorful, fun photos for my latest client.

Everyone at the shoot was so smiley, welcome and genuinely happy to be there -- all things that make my job as a photographer about 8 million times easier.

I already can't wait for my next shoot with them!

New Client Alert: My First Yoga Heights Photo Shoot!

New things -- whether it be a new recipe, a new outfit or in my case, a new client, are always exciting.

Earlier this year, I started working with the lovely ladies of Yoga Heights to shoot class videos, take photos and generally step in as the visual guru for the studio.

The result? I'm in love with my new client and all the fun images I've been able to capture for them so far.

Here's a look at some of the shots of my first shoot with them back in the cold, chilly days of winter. Enjoy!

Route 75 Flashback: Anchorage, Alaska Nature Snaps

Remember last year when I talked all about my awesome, epic USO Route 75 trip last year?

You know, the one where I got to travel around the country and tell the awesome stories of the USO for the organization's 75th anniversary last year?

Well, I was digging through my archives earlier this year and found some long-long scenic shots from our time in Alaska for Route 75 and just had to share. Although we were only there for a few days and were busy shooting most of the time, my travel companion (and fab former boss!) Eric and I had a few free hours to enjoy some of the beautiful sites and wildlife near Anchorage.

We actually headed to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center for a few hours to make sure we saw some of the local (usually elusive) wildlife, leading to some fabulous shots!

Take a look!

Wedding Shower Fun: Lindsay & Curtis

I'm at the age where all of my friends are getting married. If you're in your mid/late twenties or older, you know what I'm talking about. We've already been to a few ones this year and they've all been lovely!

This May, one of my dearest high school friends, Lindsay, is getting married and I have the privilege of being her maid of honor.

Earlier this winter, myself and the rest of the bridesmaids teamed up to throw her and her hubby-to-be an Olympic-themed couples shower, complete with games, sweet treats and plenty of themed decor.

She asked that, as a bit of present, I bring along my camera to capture some of the festivities and decor (hand-made by my friend Kayla!) and I'm so glad I did. I mean, how cute is all of this (and how talented is Kayla!)?

Oh, weddings and friends and fun...

Hello, It's Me: Playing Catchup After a Long Hiatus (and Snaps of Move Well DC's Amy Rizzotto!)

I feel like I should serenade my blog readers with an Adele medley to make up for the months its been since I last posted.

 January, really? Has it been that long? Yikes, I'm embarrassed, but not really, considering all I've been up to in the time since I've last posted...

Forgive me yet for my hiatus? Good. Let's play some catchup then, starting with this fun little outdoor mural shoot I did for Amy Rizzotto of Move Well DC back in December 2016.

If you're a regular follower of my work, you know that I've done several projects with Amy in the past, so its no surprise I was jazzed when she approached me about doing a colorful, tabata shoot for her social platforms for the early 2017 fitness rush.

While the focus of this shoot was actually video (we shot about 20 mini videos which she's been pushing on Instagram!), we took a few moments to take these fun snaps after the video portion was done. I just love how fun and colorful this wall in Rosslyn is!

Where is your favorite mural in your city?

Flashback Friday: Leaves and Friends and Hiking in the Fall Colors

As I was organizing my hard drives this past week, I came across a long-lost impromptu shoot I did of my friends Zach and Clare that I knew just had to share.

A bit of back story to these photos: Sometime this past October, Mr. Man and I were on a hike with our friends Zach and Clare at Rock Creek Park.

I just happened to have my camera on-hand incase we saw something beautiful when Clare mentioned that she was wondering if I could find some time to good photo of them for their Christmas card this year.

The leaves, the crisp cool air, the impromptu-ness --- I just couldn't resist the moment and suggested we should just take those photo here and now!

Sometimes, spur of the moment things are wonderful, right?
