Happy New Year! It’s time to catch up on blogging about a few recent portrait sessions. In early December, my family traveled to D.C. to meet the adorable new (then 5 weeks old) Callum James, who was born on Halloween. Their Cal met our Cal and it was a ball. Baby Cal lives down a quaint little historic alley (or “walk” as it’s officially titled) in Georgetown. I loved the architecture so of course I snapped a few exterior shots of their gorgeous brick row house, rumored to be a former workshop of Alexander Graham Bell, to set the scene. Cal’s parents, Matt and Brooke, are good friends of ours (Matt was the best man at our wedding) and it’s crazy to see how much has changed since I took a few engagement portraits of them in July 2010, then attended their rustic chic wedding in Sundance, Utah, and joined them in the world of parenting in 2011!
I was lucky to photograph Cal over two days, taking advantage of natural window light for most of the sessions. I just love the photos where he is gazing adoringly at his parents and so relaxed in his mom’s arms. Callum, his rock star parents, and Abigail–Cal’s 4 legged sibling–were quite cooperative! I also had fun photographing a very special outfit personalized for Cal from daddy’s boss at the White House…check it out below. Matt, Brooke, and Cal, thanks for being such wonderful (and gorgeous) subjects. I loved the photos that you chose for your Christmas card and I’m certain Cal rang in his 2 month birthday on New Year’s Eve with great fanfare!
