June 20, 2012 Bethesda Family Session!
Back when I was wedding planning (I make this sound like it was ages ago, ha!) I spent an embarrassingly large amount of time on theknot.com, particularly on the Destination Wedding and Hawaii boards. During those 10 months, I met some incredible ladies and I’m proud to say that many of them I’ve now met in person and consider to be real, true friends. Since “graduating” from theknot as a married woman I’ve joined a private Facebook group of former Hawaii brides. It’s been great getting to know these ladies who were on the boards before me and get to know them as well. Malia is one of these such wonderful ladies.
A few weeks ago I got a Facebook message from Malia. She asked if I would be willing to travel to Bethesda for family photos, and the answer of course was yes! Her sister was going to be in town and it would be the first time that their 8 and 9 month old babies would meet! I was thrilled to meet Malia and work with her family.
Here’s one of all of them, both sisters, their husbands, and all of the children!
After a few shots in the backyard, we took a walk to the park at the end of their street. Alexa, Malia’s daughter, held my hand the whole way there. She’s so adorable!!
I love this one where Baby Henry is peeking over Baby Athea’s shoulder :)
And here’s my favorite from the session. That light! That creamy gorgeous background! That ADORABLE baby! I want this framed as a 16×20 on my wall and it’s not even my kid!
And to wrap it up, a shot of all three kids. Alexa grabbed the babies a little forcefully and Henry’s face is hilarious but I think it adds to the cuteness factor :)
Malia, thanks for choosing me to photograph your family! The kids are adorable and all of you are just GORGEOUS!! And thank you for being so sweet and making me a hot pocket before I hit the road :)
