How cute is this family of 3 sisters + plus a 4th sister, Millie the Basset Hound?! Photographing girls is always a treat, as they generally are much more agreeable to the process. Though being 3 still makes for a limited attention span. But that’s OK. We still captured plenty of sweet smiles and cute sister moments. Plus pictures of the whole family of 6, on this lovely fall day in Alexandria, VA .
On a picture perfect fall day (seriously the weather is rarely this perfect!) Mary and Loay were married at St. Louis Catholic Church in Alexandria with a lovely tented wedding reception in the gardens at River Farm. River Farm is my favorite wedding venue! It’s just gorgeous for pictures, any time of the year! Mary loves the fall, so I’m glad she had lovely weather!
The lanterns overflowing with flowers as centerpieces, and rose gold themed table settings was a soft color combination that was so pretty in the garden setting, under the crystal chandeliers in the tent. Garden portraits with the historic osage orange tree, a sunset silhouette, sweet toasts, two types of traditional first dances. A good time celebrating this newly married couple was had by all. Congratulations you two!
It’s such an honor to photograph the same family over the years. Photographing both the sister’s weddings in years past, and to now the final triplet’s wedding, with Kyle and Jamie tying the knot. Such a privilege to be a witness to the wedding celebration and to capture the the joy of these two families!
As an added treat for all the guests and me, the wedding festivities were at Baker’s Cay resort in Key Largo, Florida! It happened to rain for 6 hours, with very un-Florida like weather, but that didn’t dampen the vibe or lessen the beauty of their wedding day. And they braved the weather for a few bride and groom pictures in some very scenic spots. The Key Largo resort property has lovely water views of the Gulf of Mexico, as well as native trees along the coast line. The indoor spaces also have sea (and normally sunset) views, making this a beautiful destination wedding location.
So many sweet memories were made over the weekend! Congratulations Jamie and Kyle! Many blessings to you as you start your married lives!

This little guy has grown so much in 16 months since his last photo shoot. Logan has gone from a baby to a little boy! He’s still as busy as ever and very much into cars and trucks. We had a great time “going on an adventure” in Old Town Alexandria and he kept us moving. We walked a lot of blocks! But found so many pretty spots, the houses are so unique in their textures and colors. I know his mom will treasure these pictures for years to come as he grows up right before our eyes!
What a sweet addition to this family of boys! Newborn baby brother will have a blast growing up with two older brothers to keep him entertained. David is the most pleasant baby! He didn’t sleep much, but calmly looked around with hardly a whimper all day. He seems to know he’s joined a busy Washington DC family and it’s best to go with the flow!
I’ve so enjoyed keeping up with this family over the years, starting as their wedding photographer. It’s been such an honor to document their family as it’s expanded and as the kids have grown. I love seeing pictures on their walls from all their family photo sessions! And seeing the whole family enjoy the photo albums from the wedding and the other boy’s newborn photo sessions. Precious days that are flying by, but the memories captured in pictures always take us right back and make us smile!
