Summer Mini Session Announcement

Fairfax Mini Session

We have been looking at our calendar, trying to decide when to fit in spring mini sessions. Thanks to our wonderful clients, We don’t have many (or any!) open weekends. We are moving mini sessions to June 3 and 4 this year and calling them, “Hello Summer” minis. This is the perfect chance to “test the waters” of professional photography for your family. While not a full session, you will have a private proof viewing appointment with a custom slideshow of images.

As usual, some times will be indoors at the eKate Photography studio and some times will be outdoors. $50 retainer will hold your session, and as we get closer and the weather forecast comes out, we will decide which time slots are indoor and which are outdoor. You’ll then have the option to choose your day and time slot. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. If you are ready to reserve your session (you smart person, you), contact us using the form below!

Appointments are very limited and are reserved only after a contract is signed and retainer is received.

Kathy & Doff – Hirshhorn Engagement

Since I am getting ready to blog their wedding, I thought I had better catch up and blog their engagement shoot from a while back.

Kathy and Doff had part of their first date at the Hirshhorn, so that is where we went to do a very quick engagement shoot one weekday morning.

This is hands down my favorite museum.

Usually I know right away whether I prefer an image in color or black and white, and most times I shoot the image knowing what I want and intending it to be either color or black and white. I happen to love both versions of this.

We went to Old Town Occoquan, VA for this engagement shoot with Kim and Travis. It was a little chilly at times, with some snow still on the ground in places and parts of the river frozen, but these two were troopers and looked great! We wanted to balance out all of the outdoor pictures so we got permission to shoot at Rockledge Mansion. The owner actually came by and opened it for us to use the inside! If you haven’t been there, you need to go.

Kim and Travis – thanks for hanging in there in the cold and I can’t wait to shoot your wedding this fall!

It was a little too shaded under this overpass. Reflector to the rescue and we had great light!

This is in the ballroom space of Rockledge Mansion. The room looked gorgeous with gold and white chairs and had great soft light coming in through the windows. This is basically the same shot with two very different exposures, but I loved them both and couldn’t post only one!
