You may have noticed I’ve been quiet over here lately…it’s because I’ve been vacationing in Paris for the past few months…

JUST KIDDING (but a girl can dream!)

actually I’ve been working tirelessly on some super exciting, REALLY BIG changes!

So here goes…

I am re-branding!  The new business name is Authentic Portrait.  My goal has always been to create portraits that are genuine, honest and authentic, so the name was perfect.

I have partnered with two super talented boss ladies and we are now a full-service photography studio!  We photograph everything from newborns to weddings and boudoir to fashion (and all the between).  We want to be your go-to for photography; the ones who photograph your wedding, your baby, and your baby’s senior photos when she’s grown.

We have a new studio!  We are putting the finishing touches on our studio space in Old Town Fairfax; right on Main St.  We will be here Monday through Saturday and would love for you to stop by for a visit or a shoot!

because we are giddy with excitement, and CELEBRATING over here, we are offering a really amazing Studio Opening special for all shoots booked between now and Christmas!  (and it just might INCLUDE custom Christmas cards!)
…shoot me an e-mail for all the details!

SOOOOO…
I won’t be posting to Alumbra any more and it would mean SO much if you would follow my new Authentic pages and blog!

If you’re still reading I want you to know that I will still be photographing you and your family unless you request one of my partners.  They are both incredibly talented and have their own areas of specialty!

You guys…I’m sitting here with my windows open, a candle crackling and HOT coffee in my hand.  No, the air isn’t cool yet but I am watching leaves fall (and planning to make an apple crisp today from the apples we got at the orchard earlier this week)!

So fall is preeeeeeety much here.  School is back in session (my big girl started pre-school!), and fall activities are filling our calendars.  So before our fall is totally booked up (yours and mine), let’s get your family session on the books!

(fall outfit inspiration coming SO soon because CHUNKY SWEATERS AND DENIM!!!)

Danielle is the owner of Fibre Space in Old Town Alexandria…a King Street establishment!  Her super cute (and super popular shop) in Old Town sells all kinds of unique fibers and hosts classes for beginners and more advanced students, enabling customers to use and create with their gorgeous new yarns!

This week, Danielle was featured in Red Tricycle, so instead of telling you about how awesome she is (and how cute her family is), I’ll let them tell you and I’ll show you! :)

I *might* have been singing Let it Go at the top of my lungs to get this smile…

I was super honored when my friend Michele asked me to photograph her family.  Kody, their sweet dog, is getting older and having more health issues, and she wanted to be sure they had photographs of the three of them together.

We photographed in Old Town Alexandria in one of my favorite gardens on a warm summer evening a few weeks ago.

Michelle and Brian, thank you for allowing me to capture your family in this season of life!
