    Review: Trello Organizational App

    Okay so last week I told you about my favorite paper planner, this week I am going to review Trello, one of my favorite apps. It is an incredibly simple way to organize your thoughts and to-dos, yet very flexible, and very useful as it synchronizes across computers, phones, and tablets. Plus it is free!

    Destination Senior Pictures – Northern VA Claude Moore Park

    As a full-service photographer offering Northern VA senior pictures, I do offer studio portraits to my clients. Some high school seniors prefer the control of the studio lights, as well as the controlled temperature and lack of gnats and mosquitos and other creepy crawly flying things that are associated with outdoor, on-location photography.

    Destination Senior Pictures – Lansdowne Waterfall

    Northern Virginia has so many beautiful locations for high school senior photographers! The Lansdowne waterfall was one of my early discoveries, and has been so popular for senior portraits. It’s a very small space, but it packs a variety of different looks in one location. If you don’t like to do a lot of walking, and you want a more…

    In June, some of my senior models and I headed to Morven Park in Leesburg, Virginia, for a senior model safari. We started with the prom dresses, which you can see here, and then moved into this styled senior shoot.

    Oh the sweet deliciousness of a newborn! The curly newness melts me every time. When this angel’s mama emailed me for newborn baby portraits, I was thrilled.
