Photography of weddings, children, places, and people.

Posts from the Flickr Category

Yay for being “on a roll!” Ha, just kidding. I really have better stuff to do. Like MY JOB.

I just realized I never posted any cherry blossom pictures from when I went to DC with a Flickr friend the other week. And since today is gross and dreary, and most of the cherry blossoms have lost their perfect, little petals, I thought it would be nice to post a few little pretties on here.


This one is foggy and not so generally “pretty”, but there’s something about the grey and lonely that is soothing. For some reason.


Bryce took quite a liking to the cherry blossoms. It was her first time ever seeing them and she loved just taking it all in.


Some cherry blossoms with the Jefferson Memorial behind them. This place always holds special memories for me 🙂


The Washington Monument framed with some petals. You know, I’ve lived in the DC area for a good 90-something % of my life and have never been inside the monument. One day!

The above two pictures are my friend Ingrid who I met on flickr. She met up with me and Bryce, with two of her four kiddos, and we walked around taking some pictures of the trees and then went for lunch at Teaism. Please go there someday 🙂


Here’s her little boy and girl. ADORABLE children 🙂

We found a photographers and childs heaven near the Monument. There was a beautiful canopy of trees surrounding us and it snowed petals. What magic!


The sky wasn’t blue, but it made for a nice diffuser when taking pictures of the trees. I do prefer a white background here over a blue one. It makes it a little more surreal to me.

Here are Ingrid’s kids again. Seriously, they are just so precious!


It appears that the Cherry Blossoms are not the only pretty flowers in DC during the festival! These tulips are just lovely! There were so many other colors, but I enjoyed the red and yellow ones the best. They were so striking.


Again, not a cherry blossom picture, but I love it. The fog is so pretty to me 🙂

Dude… I suck at blogging… oh well 🙂

Last Saturday, Wes, Bryce and I went to DC to meet up with some fun friends from Flickr. There were a BUNCH of people that I did not know, and a few that I did. Some people came from New York and Pennsylvania just to be involved in this fun group of awesomeness.

Here’s some pictures from the cold, grey (but fun) day:

Aw, <3.

These are people that I actually do know, on the top we have Erin and John (they both live in Ashburn), and on the bottom we have another Erin (who lives in New York) and her boyfriend Jason (who lives in Fairfax). They are pretty much awesome 🙂


Here is the action! When you get a bunch of photographer together you get some, um… weird pictures. I’ll let you guess what their pictures turned out like 🙂


Another picture of Jason and Erin. I seem to have a lot of those, they’re just so darn cute together!


Ahh, the Capitol.

5And the Lincoln Memorial.


The baby passed out pretty early in her AWESOME, new-to-us, only-$30-from-Craigslist stroller 🙂


And speaking of the baby… This just melts my heart 🙂 *sigh*


And here’s the other love of my life in front of the Monument. Patriotic Wes 😀


Looking up at the monument and a flag.



We found this awesome tree that was right next to the monument, and of course, had to take pictures in it. Bryce wanted her own close up, and it’s hard to not oblige her 🙂


Hey! It’s Super-Baby!


Did you know that they empty the Reflecting Pool in the winter? I didn’t either… Apparently it is so the water does not expand and break the cement. Who knew? Wes decided that he wanted to take a little dip. In the empty Reflecting Pool. In the cold. He is a crazy man 🙂


Of course we had to do a jumping shot!
(are you tired yet of all the pictures and my lame narrative? I am 🙂


Another picture to add to the Baby in Random Places book 🙂 I think I’m going to call it, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go.” Although I feel like that might be copyright infringement. Sorry, Dr. Seuss.



Wes had to leave early in order to get to the Edge practice at church. So before we left the area I made sure that we visited Georgetown Cupcakes. I had a craving and I needed it fulfilled (no, I’m not pregnant again…).  BEST. CUPCAKES. EVER. And totally worth the wait in the drizzling rain! And worth it to make us rush to get back home in time 🙂 The flavors we got were (top, l-r) Mocah, Chocolate3, Peanut-butter/Chocolate, (bottom, l-r) Vanilla, Chocolate2, and Red Velvet. Please wipe the drool off your screen.

And now the baby is awake so I must go 🙂
