Photo Booth for Kids Party | Northern VA children’s photographer

For my son’s 6th grade “promotion” party in June I was asked to be the slideshow creator for the ‘end of year slideshow’ as well as party photographer.  I offered to do a ‘photo booth’ type set-up at the party even tho I had never done that before. I brought one studio light, backdrop and stands. I could have just walked around and snapped candids but thought for this age group, they would have more fun hamming it up for my camera along with one key item:  PROPS.  I went out and purchased boas, glasses, hats, mustaches, etc from the party store and boy did that go over great!  Here are some of the results.  A bright blue background was key to making this age-appropriate and trendy.

Naturally, had to get the party organizing committee in one shot.


Brooklyn | High School Senior Session

So as I get more bookings for the class of 2016, I was reviewing old sessions and ran across this one from 2013 and GASPED!  I neglected to blog it and it was one of my favorite sessions ever!  I have known Brooke since she was 8 or 9 and so naturally it was a pleasure to get my lens on her!  Such a gorgeous gal and amazingly beautiful soul.
