Elena Sonnino and I met years ago when I began teaching at Oak View Elementary School. Since her time in the classroom, Elena has found herself drawn to helping others find their balance in life, and the "flight in the fight" to reach their own summit. She is currently launching a new career in which she can combine life coaching and yoga for a holistic approach to wellness. Her photos display her passion for inspiring and empowering women, her connection to nature, and embracing the journey of life.
Allison and I were so excited when Jen and Tim Bakos reached out to us for family photos. The last time we photographed this great family was in 2011, when their kids, Molly and Sebastian, were just little ones. Now 1st and 3rd graders, they've grown into awesome young people, full of personality. We went to one of our new favorite photo locations, Blenheim Historic Site, in Fairfax. The historic buildings, fences, and lush green lawn make this the perfect backdrop for some very sweet family portraits. We loved that some of these photos even have the very same teddy bears from our first photo shoot together :)
March was a special month for Allison and I. We welcomed our beautiful baby girl, Anna. Needless to say, life has never been the same. Get ready world, the photos are coming in droves! For now, enjoy these special gems of our newborn shoot.
