Real Life Cabbage Patch Doll | Upper Marlboro, MD Newborn Photographer

Recently I had the chance to photograph a real life Cabbage Patch Kid. Oh I am so serious. To the point when I undressed her to put her in my baby basket I had to check to see if Xavier Roberts was indeed scribbled on her buns.  But fortunately it wasn’t. She was so scrumptious and delicious and oh so much fun. So alert for a newborn she fell in love with me at first sight as I did her. So in love that she felt comfortable peeing in my hand. Comes with the job I guess.

Mom, thanks so much for trusting me with your living doll. It was truly an honor and a treat!

Be Mine ~ Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions

Feels like Christmas  was just yesterday and wam bam boom Valentine’s Day is around the corner!  I have had several of my past clients ask me about doing Valentine’s Day mini-sessions. It was not something I planned on doing, but since my clients are so good to me, I decided I would return the favor. So…here’s the deal. There are ONLY 7 sessions available, these are 20 min sessions  so only 4 people per session (additional folks are $10 per person).  There will not be time for any clothing changes and the location is predetermined by me.  Once you book your session I will share all of the secret sweet details of the setup etc so we can make sure you are dressed perfectly for our play date! Don’t think for a minute that this is just for the kiddos. Heck, you’ll be the coolest kid at work passing out Vday cards with your gorgeous face on it! This is perfect for couples, families or even single folks who just feel like being fabulous!

Book your session by clicking http://thecapturedlife.bookmonline.com/schedules. If you need more information or just wanna chat more about it shoot me an email info@thecapturedlife.com or call 202-257-3458.

SO SHARE THE LOVE AND TELL YOUR PEEPS ABOUT THIS EVENT!!  

Don’t you wanna be the coolest kid on the block with these custom candy cards!

When people ask to see pictures of your kid, instead of rummaging through your cell phone you can whip this out…BAM!

There’s nothing better than family, Silver Spring Family Photographer

Holidays are always nice because you get together with family from all over the country and just chill. Simply enjoy one another. For the short amount of time that you are together it just seems to refuel you until you meet again at the next event. What makes it even richer is when you have an opportunity to have those memories documented to save for generations to come. Isaac called me, from an awesome recommendation from the uber talented, ever colorful Beth Jansen, and said that it’s not often that his entire family can get together all at once and he wanted to take advantage of this time and take a group photograph. Well you know I just can’t take one picture so we made the most out of it! Not only were they gorgeous but so much fun. I even had the chance to meet and photograph the beautiful LaChanze. I knew she looked familiar. I had a chance to see her on Broadway in Oprah Winfrey’s The Color Purple , where she won the Tony Award for best leading actress in a musical among many other things.   You couldn’t even tell how we were freezing our butts off from the looks on their faces but it was oh so worth it. Made working with this large group a cherished experience as they made me feel like part of the family.

Thanks Fordjour family for including me in your Holiday family time. See you next Christmas!

The heartbeat of the family. The beautiful mom, dad, grandma, grandpa.

There is just something that I love about this photograph. The love between a grandpa and his youngest grandson.

Hey there Celie! What a beautiful bunch right!

Those eyes just melt my heart.

Couldn’t leave little brother out right! You don’t have to have kids to take awesome photots. Hey now!

Three generations. Love it!

Don’t you just want to pinch those cheeks!

Never too cool to get kisses from daddy.
