Children’s Birthday Party Photography

A one year old’s birthday party was the occasion for photography coverage last Saturday.

Friends and family gathered to wish Lauren a Happy First Birthday.  Lauren looked beautiful in her festive party dress.

If you plan to be married at the Clerk’s Office located in the Circuit Court Annex in Upper Marlboro I can meet you there.  Pictures can be taken of the ceremony and at the beautiful lake across the street.  If you are planning a reception or gathering afterwards that photography can also be included.

Photo Shoot with DC model Patrick Amara

Patrick Amara is a fashion and physique model.  Pictures were taken a few hours before he flew off to the west coast to enjoy his birthday and the Christmas holidays.  More of his work can be seen on Instagram.

After shooting several sessions outdoors we went into a residence hall near the University of Maryland in College Park.  I wanted to take advantage of the shadows in the room and the mood they provided.

Near and Far – Sitting Side by Side

father-son-african-american-muslim
One of my favorite images taken at Million More March in Washington, DC years ago. I like how close the men are sitting though there was plenty of room on the wall. Not sure if they are father and son or just close friends. They are sitting side by side but seem to be miles apart in thoughts. Nevertheless, bond by affection. What do you think?
