Congratulations to Danielle and Adam! They had a beautiful fall wedding at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, Virginia. It was fun to take a trip out of town for this one.

These Kate Spade Wedding Shoes were a perfect touch to Danielle’s fall themed wedding. The giraffe brooch was Danielle’s mothers. It’ss a truly beautiful touch to add something sentimental to a bridal bouquet.

Love the color palette for this fall themed wedding. Love how excited the flower girl is to be front and center with her fall flower basket and beautiful flower girl dress.

They had a quote at the top of their wedding programs from Princess Bride: That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying, “As you wish,” what he really meant was, “I love you.” And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back.

The readings during their ceremony were “I Love You”, by Roy Croft and “Desiderata”, by Max Erhmann. Desiderata in particular had a very personal family connection.

In their vows instead of saying I Do… they answered “As You Wish” to add a little unexpected humor to the ceremony.

Beautiful Baby Girl Charleigh’s Newborn Photos | Ramsey, NJ

Excited to introduce a sampling of baby Charleigh’s newborn pictures. She was such a sweetheart!  A total mush, she loved to be in the comfort of mommy’s arms.  Charleigh’s mom and dad received a gift certificate for their newborn session. What a lovely gift! I was thrilled to be a part of this super sweet present for the new mom and dad! You can purchase gift certificate’s for friends by contacting us through the website.

I love how her sweet little hands are resting on her cheeks. Big blue, open eyes make for adorable newborn photos.

Fast asleep in her rocker. This is one of my favorite scenes for a newborn photo because before you know it Charleigh will be sitting in that chair reading stories. I love to see them grow.

Charleigh’s mom had this beautiful hair tie. It’s always nice when my client’s think ahead and purchase some special accessories for their babies’ photo shoot.

A new home for a growing family! We braved the cold for this shot but it was so worth it!
