Joshie Mini Session | Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Photographer

Tuesday, November 4, 2014
Hello, Lovelies!

I’m an editing banshee right now.  Tons on the to-do list, and luckily, I’m checking off times left and right!

First up, this amazingly handsome family.  Honestly, these three are not models.  You’re probably saying, “No way!”  I hear ya, folks, but the truth is they are really that good looking.

So, here are a few of my favorite from our mini session shoot.  I hope you enjoy!

Mini Session Sneak Peek: Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland Photographer

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

Just a quick check in as I’m trying to stay on top of paperwork and editing as I wind down my pregnancy—only a little over 5 weeks left!

I’m finished shooting weddings, but I’m finishing up my pregnancy with a ton of mini sessions and a few full sessions.  Here is a sneak peek into some of the recent mini sessions.  I love shooting at my new home!  Most photographers BEG to shoot at locations like mine, and with an antique business??  I feel like one lucky duck.

... let's just pull out the antique sofa imported from France for the shoot. ... why don't we pose it with the street lights?  Love!

I’ll share this year’s awesome weddings with you during my “maternity leave,” when I enjoy my new little one, most people get engaged, and I prepare for the 2015 season!

Friday, October 3, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

It's Fall, back-to-school, and getting close to the holidays... did you know its less than 100 days till Christmas?!  Crazy!  To prepare for it all, I'm again offering Fall mini sessions.

So, what's a mini session?  Normally, we shoot for 60-90 minutes at a cost of $375.  I'm offering 30-minute "mini" sessions for just $125!  If you share a Facebook post of mine (see my Facebook page for details), follow me on Twitter, follow me on Pinterest, or follow me on Instagram-- you'll get an even MORE discounted price of $115!

During our full session, you get a zillion images, but to keep prices low, I'll let you select your favorite five images from our session for an immediate download when you book this "mini" session. You can choose to print with me or take your digital image to YOUR favorite printer.

All mini sessions will occur at my "new" historic home in Jefferson, Maryland, only a few miles north of the Leesburg Outlets!  Mini sessions will be in the evenings of October 5, 18, 19 and November 1 and 2.  These sessions fill up FAST, and with an already busy Fall shooting schedule.... this is your opportunity!

Mini sessions are perfect for your holiday cards, updating your family photos, save-the-dates, and updating your social media profile with a snazzy, professional pic.

Email me NOW letting me know you are interested!  Let's pick your dated before the time slots are all full!  info@jalapenophotography.com

Sneak Peek with Family 'B': Maryland Family Photographer

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

Things are crazy around these parts!  As some of you know, we purchased an old farmhouse and are slowly fixing it up.  As with any old house, it’s one step forward, one step back.  This house is going to be amazing!  Just give me a decade.

Today, I have a sneak peek from another shoot I did around the old farmhouse.  This shoot with Cassie of Primitive and Proper (link) and the Sweet Clover Barn (link).  We shot some photos to update her blog profile and some family photos—redunkulously adorable!

More with this beauty and her family later this week!

Sneak Peek with Family M: Maryland Family Photographer

Monday, September 29, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

Wow!  Is it October, or nearly October, already?!  Time is flying by!  My husband was watching a pot boil tonight, and I taught him the idiom: A watched pot never boils.  He may have had to wait “forever!” but it seems like I’m always burning dinner. 

I have too much to do to watch water boil!  I love it.

Today, I have a quick sneak peek of a family session I recently shot at my home in Jefferson.  I’ll host mini sessions at this location soon.  If you are interested in getting the info first, please shoot me an email at info@jalapenophotography.com, and I’ll get you signed up for my newsletter!  Info on the mini sessions will go out by email first on Wednesday.

So, here is a sneak with the AWESOME M Family!  See that super cool log wall?  Not a cheesy backdrop.  We shot in my kitchen.

More of these cuties coming later in the week!

Our House is on the Market: Reston Waterfront Townhouse

Friday, September 19, 2014

Hello, Darlings!

Sorry I’ve been away from the blog for a bit.  August was a CRAZY month for our family.  I’m super excited to share some of the details with you soon!

As a first step, we put our Reston house on the market.  **Sniff, Sniff**  I LOVE this house! 

I searched and searched for years for a house.  Honestly, I probably looked at 100 houses.  So many DC-area houses are federal style—low ceilings, small windows, dark, dark, and dark.  If they aren’t naturally dark, you have to have blinds on your windows making your home dark because there is someone -->>thisclose<<--

I grew up in a geodesic dome in Alaska (see here).  I needed a unique home with lots of LIGHT.  I feel in love with the Wharf, and when this smaller home came on the market… it was mineJ

It was perfect as a photographer!  In the middle of an awesome market, and the light is amazing!  The living room was the perfect place to kick back with feet up or meet with clients—perfect natural light studio!

So, take a look at some of the photos and the info on the house.  I know it is going to be the perfect home for someone as it was for me! 


Address: 11142 Glade Drive, Reston, VA 20191

The updated home has brand new Samsung stainless steel appliances, engineered hardwood floors and carpeting. Additionally, the home boasts a remodeled kitchen, two newly remodeled baths, new decks/ dock, and recently replaced energy-efficient windows. Home includes exclusive accouchements such as antique chandeliers, cathedral and wood-beamed ceilings, a rehabbed fireplace surround from an antique Baltimore estate, and personal bridge over a stream. The home is surrounded by nature trails, local parks and swimming pools.

Stunning views of local lake "The Wharf," and the ability to cast a line from your bedroom or private deck/ dock. The boat conveys! Unlike all other Reston lakes, residents enjoy swimming, ice skating, fishing, and boating in the local lake.

With the extremely low cost of ownership, this home is perfect for the homebuyer looking to move in, be styling, and be near it all.  For more info: see here!
