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! 

OPEN HOUSE THIS SATURDAY: 1:30 to 4:00 PM
OPEN HOUSE THIS SUNDAY: Noon to 3:00 PM

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!

Little N's Back-to-School Photos

Monday, August 18, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

Life has been super, crazy busy, but I need to get caught up on the blogging! 

As a start, Little B is headed back to her mom’s house this week, so we staged a last minute back-to-school photoshoot for the girls.  I’m a bit of a perfectionist, so it was hard to be okay with a shoot at high noon, when the light is at its harshest. 

Buuuut, here’s the thing about photos: you take them or the moment is gone.  B’s back to her mom’s house, school starts, teeth are lost, and life goes on.  It’s important to capture life, even if all its imperfections, before the moment is lost forever.

So, first up is the mini shoot with Little N.  Little N starts Pre-K next week!  Yikes!!  Where does the time go?  Stay tuned for Little B, an announcement of Fall Mini Sessions, and some hotty-mctotty wedding photos later in the week.

Shrimpie is a... | Northern Virginia Gender Reveal Photographer

Monday, August 4, 2014

Hello, Lovelies!

I recently shared some fun news over on my interior design blog, and I thought I should share it here with you, too!  Our Little Shrimpie (the name Little N gave to our growing fetus) will be a….

… well, you’ll have to scroll down to see:)

A few things to note:
  • The cake cutting set was made by my amazingly talented dad for our wedding—yay!  We get to use it again.
  • Because it was raining, we shot in the pavilion where we got married… can you say awww??
  • Finally, pink means girl and blue means boy.










Are you interested in capturing a gender reveal on camera?  My Gender Reveal package includes:
  • 90 minutes of shooting—so the reveal and a mini maternity session.
  • The edited, digital images: usually 40-50.
  • Custom 6-inch buttercream cake with pink or blue interior frosting, paper plates, and disposable silverware for 10 or less OR fancy box and a dozen pink or blue balloons.

All for $425!  Which is awesome for a mini party and mini shoot, right?  Packages are customizable, so shoot me an email to schedule your gender reveal or customize your own package. 

Do you see Little B’s face when she sees the blue?  I love that we have such a special moment to add to Shrimpie’s baby book.  Into the world with love and excitement.
