You may remember that I mentioned that we were finally having professional family photos taken back in October. We called on my old friend Heather Behlendorf, who I know from my last job before I went back to school. It was an interesting place to work. It was a very small financial services firm filled with people who had dreams of being elsewhere but loved working with each other. It really was the best group of people that I've ever worked with -- I still miss them. The firm folded a few years ago and only one of us is still in finance.
Heather always knew that her dream was to be a full time photographer. She was setting up and slowly growing her business in the DC area while working full time at the finance job. Once I saw her photos, I knew that I wanted her to take our family photos. A job loss, grad school & various expenses put it off until this fall. For Heather, the firm that we worked at closed in DC & she was presented with the unexpected opportunity to go full time in photography. It was sink or swim and she is swimming along beautifully.
It was a beautiful day for our session, cold & crisp. She captured it perfectly.
One of my favorites

She does beautiful wedding, baby & family photographs. If you go to her site, check out Emily & Reese's wedding -- they are former colleagues of ours who met & fell in love at that financial firm!
