Family Fun! | Bethesda, MD Family Photographer

Can I tell you what fun I had with this family??!  They are friends of mine so that helps but we had a blast venturing around Floyd Lamb Park and goofing off.  I have a picture of the dad riding his daughter’s tiny bike (not posted here) – need I say more?

AND, I re-discovered what fun pre-teen girls are to photograph.  I spend so much time chasing toddlers (which I also love), that I forget that tween girls LIKE to be photographed.  They come up with their own pose ideas and, wait for it, they don’t run away when I’m trying to photograph them. 🙂  Of course, being beautiful doesn’t hurt.

Neighbors | Bethesda, MD family photographer

One of the things that I’ll miss the most about moving to Maryland is our neighborhood.  Our neighborhood is a bit of an anomaly in Las Vegas – people actually know each other and care about each other!  Hopefully I’ll find that in Bethesda too.

The C family has only been with us for just the last of my five plus years but they fit right in.  Their oldest daughter has been my babysitter for photo shoots and I am really going to miss having her right across the street!

Brittany and Stephen | Maryland Wedding Photographer

One boy, one girl, finally united together after a year apart.  Brittany and Stephen met and fell in love in Las Vegas but basic training, tech training and a job in the Air Force kept him away for a year while she finished school.  I was blessed to be able to capture their wedding day so they will always be able to remember it.  Thanks also to Jenn Steffens of Pirates and Pixies Photography for second-shooting.

Bittersweet goodbyes | Maryland family photographer

Sadness and joy are upon me at the same time.  We are moving to Bethesda, Maryland in two months and, of course, the news is bittersweet.

I am excited for this new adventure, for the opportunity for my children to see more of the world, for my husband to be challenged in his new job, for the hardwood floors in our new home :), for the green and the four seasons, for trees that actually create open shade and for new clients and friends.

But I am sad to be leaving all of my wonderful clients and friends here in Las Vegas.  My business has taken root here and many of my clients have become friends.  This is where Roaming Reflections Photography has grown wings and left the proverbial nest.

Thank you to everyone who has been part of my life for the last five and a half years.  Thank you for supporting me, encouraging me, hiring me :), and for loving your families enough to invest in professional photography.  The years fly by so quickly that we wonder where that chubby-cheeked toddler went.  Do me a favor and find another photographer you love and keep taking pictures!   These fleeting moments are priceless.

So here’s to starting anew in Maryland – I will be serving the Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Rockville, College Park and surrounding areas of Maryland as well as the Washington DC metro area and Fairfax County, Virginia.  I will continue to photograph families, children, babies and newborns.  I might even publicly offer my services for weddings (until now, they’ve been underground).  🙂  If you live in any of these areas, I will be available to book sessions starting the end of March 2012.
