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!

Little B's Back-to-School Photos

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Hello, Darlings!

So, now it’s time for Little B’s back-to-school photos.  Our kids are so much fun!  Little N with her serious and goofy faces, knobby knees, love of animals, and traditional Peruvian nose—my heart!  Little B is a complete goofball, my ever-adventurer, with stop-your-tracks stunning blue eyes and goofy buckteeth.

She’s off to school soon, and we’re going to miss her bunches.  Stay tuned for later in the week for information on mini sessions—where you can get your very own back-to-school photos!
