Holiday Family Portraits

These are a few shots from a recent family photo shoot for the holidays.  We loved to see this family of five again and love how they bring their dog to be part of the photo because he is such a big part of their lives.  It was a fun photo shoot and we think the pictures will make great holiday cards.

The American Foundation for Saint George Hospital Annual Gala

Here are some photos from The American Foundation for Saint George Hospital Annual Gala at the Omni Shoreham hotel in Washington, DC.  This night was filled with dinner, speeches, a silent auction, and lots of dancing.  Everyone there was having a great time and was there for a good cause.

Fun Wedding Photo just in time for Halloween

We had a wedding photo shoot a few weeks ago with a couple who loves watching zombie movies. On the wedding day, I asked the couple to make some zombie poses for a movie poster.
Here is the result after some modifications :-)


This was one of the original images used for the Zombie Movie Poster photo montage.

This spider scene above is based on a real event that happened to me. I was photographing a huge black widow  and I thought that it would nicer if it was isolated on a white background. Well, a gust of wind came by and blew the whole thing on me.

It was very easy to perform an historical reenactment on this event.
