Mary | An Old Town Alexandria Portrait Session

I love that my job revolves around celebrating… engagements, wedding days, growing families, graduating seniors- it’s one big giant party celebrating life- and I love it.

When Mary contacted me asking to book a portrait session to celebrate her 25th birthday (hooray for a quarter of a century!)- I was SO excited to add another kind-of celebration to the docket. What better day to celebrate life- than on a birthday?! And what better way to celebrate a birthday, than to document it with pictures? This is why I do what I do:)

I first met Mary at her sister Sara and Matt’s wedding. I love the whole Hughlett and Paulson family- they are all such life-filling people. Mary is, of course, no different. She is an absolute joy to be around: a constant smiler, a true light with the most vibrant personality. We spent a couple hours together with a couple coffee breaks in between mosquito bites;)– and had the best time galavanting around my favorite Old Town together.

This girl has so many truly good things ahead of her- and I’m so excited I was able to capture a bit of this girl’s zest in celebration of year 25.

Mary- thank you so much for asking me to capture part of this exciting time in your life! <3
