{M&B Engagements}

I was pretty excited when my brother-in-law asked me to take his engagement photos. It was my first engagement session and I really enjoyed it. I am so happy for these two and am thrilled with the outcome of their shoot. I think I really captured their connection and you can see how much love they have for each other. They both look so happy and Becky will make a beautiful bride.

I am really happy for them and wish them the best in their upcoming adventure of marriage. 
Now, I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!

Don't you just love seeing people in love? I sure do!

“You are my I love you”- Northern Virginia Children's Photographer

My daughter goes around saying, "Aly needs ipad!" then she insists on having her animals watch the show with her. She is quite the lover of stuffed animals, and if one is missing at bedtime she simply cannot go to sleep without it. She has almost the same reaction with the ipad and is sad when it goes "missing" (more like we have to hide it to give her a break!)
I wanted to capture her with her little animal friends so we can remember how much she loved them at 2.

I love the poem by Maryann K. Cusimano titled "You are my I love you" and feel so blessed to be a mother.

I am your parent you are my child

I am your quiet place, you are my wild

 I am your calm face, you are my giggle
I am your wait, you are my wiggle

I am your audience, you are my clown

I am your London Bridge, you are my falling down

I am your Carrot Sticks, you are my licorice

I am your dandelion, you are my first wish

I am your water wings, you are my deep
I am your open arms, you are my running leap
I am your way home, you are my new path
I am your dry towel, you are my wet bath
I am your dinner you are my chocolate cake

 I am your bedtime, you are my wide awake
I am your finish line, you are my race

I am your praying hands, you are my saving grace

 I am your favourite book, you are my new lines
I am your nightlight, you are my sunshine

I am your lullaby, you are my peek-a-boo

I am your kiss goodnight, you are my I love you.
