There's always room for cello (especially out in the middle of nowhere- near the Salt Flats in Utah)

Color and Shapes

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way- things I had no words for" _ Georgia O'Keeffe

It is such a treat when I can combine my love for music and photography!  Both passions allow me to express myself in ways that words cannot.  I was excited when Paul Tucker, a great saxophonist in the Army Band, asked me to take some publicity shots for him.  We started shooting at Ft. Myer just as the sun was coming up, and ended up in Georgetown.  
And now for my favorite shots.  This fountain, with the Kennedy Center in the background, is amazing!  I'm so glad Paul was willing to get under the water!  I think the water droplets look a little like music notes. :)

Red Steel

Gosh I'm so glad to know this guy and his lovely wife, Christina.  Amazing friends and amazing musicians!  My favorite part about these photos would have to be Ben's red cello case and his awesome cowboy boots.  Oh, and his Blue Steel pose.  You'll see that at the end ;)
And now for some bloopers....(don't hate me Ben ;))

Southern, Spring Bride

"I don't think I am going to be able to stop smiling" Catherine beamed as soon as we started her bridal session.  You and me both, Catherine!  Even now I can't stop smiling as I remember our incredibly fun day walking around DC in your gorgeous gown!  

One of my favorite things about living in DC are the cherry blossoms that burst out every Spring.  What's even more beautiful to me than the blossoms on the trees, is the carpet of pink they create when the petals fall to the ground.  "Magical" is the word that comes to mind when I think about our session in the pink, falling snow.  Enjoy your wedding in Savannah, Catherine and Gene!  Congratulations!!

"Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life"

"Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life"
Berthold Auerbach

Amelia started the cello a year and a half ago with my husband, Justin.  It is amazing to see how far she has come in just a short time and I know she has incredible experiences in her future!  She is a beautiful person- both inside and out.  Actually, GORGEOUS is a better adjective!  When we found out her family is moving {sigh}, her mom and I talked about getting photos of her cello to help decorate her new room.  I'm so glad she was willing because she was SO much fun to photograph!  Thanks a ton to Song for suggesting Fort Washington as our location!  What a cool place!!  To see Song's awesome photos from this shoot, click here.  
Thank you, Amelia, for the beautiful music you brought to our home, week after week.  We will miss you and your wonderful family!!

Fiddle on, cowgirl! {Part 1}

Christina Wensel is an amazing person, mother, musician and friend.  I am so lucky to know her and was so happy to be able to take some head shots for her!  December is so busy, but we managed to steal a few minutes between one of our rehearsals downtown...

The Jackson Three String Trio

I had so much fun taking these pictures of my siblings!  They are trying to market themselves a little better online so I took the photos and designed them a website.  Anyone in Utah need music for their wedding or party?  These guys are fantastic!
