In anticipation of her wedding this weekend, Samantha decided to do a bridal session at Rust Manor House in Leesburg, VA. She was a lovely bride and she picked a lovely setting and we wish her many blessings on her marriage!
A first birthday is such a huge milestone. A child has grown and changed so much in a year, and so have the parents. They've kept a tiny human alive for a whole year and maintained their sanity at the same time. Not an easy feat, but a rewarding one. It was such a treat to be invited into this family's home to document the celebration of their little man. I love getting to peek inside the world of other families and witness the joy and sweetness that is so easily overlooked in the busyness and exhaustion of the day-to-day.
Lindsay and Mark invited us into Washington DC to celebrate their engagement session a few weeks back as the cherry blossoms began to bloom and Spring time was welcomed into our city with open arms. We started out at the incredibly designed Lincoln Restaurant, which was one of their favorite places to go while they dated. From there we traveled up closer to their home neighborhood at Capitol Hill. Congrats to these two and their upcoming wedding!
The Malik's have become such dear friends of ours over the past few years. Each member of their family is filled with a zeal for life and compassion for those around them. We look forward to many more decades of friendship filled with their smiles and spirit. And we especially look forward to welcoming their new baby boy this summer!
