Last month, I assisted Hyon Smith at a holiday party at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner. We set up a portrait station for the guests and wanted to make sure everything was a go so we took some test shots. here are a couple from the test:
On Sunday, I had the privilege of photographing Addison’s baptism. She’s a super cute baby with a variety of expressions that is absolutely adored by her whole family. I had fun photographing the event and sharing this wonderful moment with her family.
I’m looking forward to many great events in 2009. My 5d and I will be a force to be reckoned with this upcoming year, from Northern Virginia to Hawaii, so we’ll be seeing a lot of action and I can’t wait to share all the great memories on this blog. For now, here is a glimpse of my experiences from 2008 which include weddings, engagement and portrait sessions, and galas. There many more pictures but these were among the favorites.
I got to assist at a wedding at the end of the year. This was taken as the sun was setting and I thought it would make a great silhouette shot which was taken in Georgetown.
I took this on the catwalk at the Top of the Town restaurant in Arlington. I didn’t have a tripod with me so I tried to hold it steady as long as I could. I ended up with a decent photo of Washington D.C.
I finally received my camera last Wednesday on Christmas Eve. The long awaited phone call to come pick up my new Canon 5d Mark II couldn’t have come at a better time. It made be believe again that there really is a Santa out there. I am currently enjoying my new piece of equipment and can’t wait to learn more about it.
