met on the Metro. She was reading a business book that he recognized and so Cliff started a conversation that day with the woman he was destined to spend the rest of his life with! Cliff and Laurie live outside of the heart of DC in an area called Mount Pleasant. That name couldn’t be more accurate. After driving through the craziness of the city, it was so refreshing to come to this quaint neighborhood full of adorable row houses and a large park. Cliff and Laurie met me at the park near their home last Wednesday and we got to know one another as I shot their engagement session.
It was the perfect day. 76 degrees and beautiful sunlight peeking through the trees. We walked around Rock Creek Park and talked about their beautiful wedding that they are planning for this fall. I loved getting to know this sweet, easy going couple. They were up for anything… including laying in damp grass:) It was worth it! Their portraits are beautiful and I just loved my time with them!! I’m already looking forward to their wedding day!! It’s going to be gorgeous! Enjoy some of my favorites!
Love Laurie’s Smile!!
This spot was Cliff’s idea! And it’s one of my favorites!!
They live in the cutest neighborhood!!
There has never been a year quite like 2020. It started off so normal, so simple and so carefree. Then, March/April hit and it felt like everything was turned upside down!
Another month. I had forgotten just how fast it goes when they are this tiny. One minute they are in 0-3 month clothes and the next you’re unpacking 6month options!
How is it MARCH already in 2021?! This year is flying by and we’re getting closer and closer to the beginning of wedding season! At least we are here in Virginia! It’s my honor to get to introduce you to some of our KJ Students who are doing the hard work of educating themselves and growing their businesses! My hope is that their stories and advice will be an encouragement to anyone wanting to grow and feel confident before wedding season picks up!
Welcome to a brand new installment of KJ Student Spotlight!! It’s always a good day on the blog when we get to introduce you to some of our students and share their wins and advice!!! These three students have taken courses, watched Youtube episodes, are KJ All Access members, use our templates and have invested in themselves time and time again in order to grow their businesses! They deserve this recognition!!!
Here it is! Post one of twelve! I’m committing, once again, to blogging my favorite images each month of Everett’s first year and I’m excited about it because I know from past experience that this is truly the BEST motivation and accountability to stay on top of family editing!!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
