Baby Nicholas | Alexandria VA Baby Photographer

I LOVE it when my wedding couples call me to do portraits of their babies. It is truly one of my most favorite parts of this job. I even have a program in place to encourage my couples to call me--the Your Life in Portraits program offers different monthly specials to my awesome wedding and longtime portrait clients.
So, Jamie and Jennifer called me to take photos of their adorable son, Nicholas. He is the dangerous kind of baby--the kind that makes me want more! He was so well-behaved and so sweet. Here are a few of my favorites from our session at Jennifer and Jamie's home in Alexandria, VA.

Congrats on the new addition Jennifer and Jamie! I hope to see you again soon :)

Food Drive Contest Winner! | Northern VA Photographer

I am a little late in posting the winner to the food drive contest. A major sickness that has been circulating through my house took me out of commission for much longer than it should have, then I was out of town for a photography seminar. So, without further ado, our winner is...
The total food contribution was 116 pounds! Thanks to everyone who contributed to the food drive this year and congratulations Tara!

I'm a New Blogger for The DC Ladies!

I recently became a part of a great local blog called the DC Ladies, a blog that "gives you an eclectic mix of what is fun, fashionable, family related and just plain fabulous in our Capital Area for women." It was started by a mother-daughter team and they've done a wonderful job assembling women bloggers who are experts in such fields as photography, pets, fashion, wedding and event planning, health, children and family and much, much more! With daily posts, there really is something for everyone. So add it to your blog reader and become a fabulous DC Lady yourself!

P.S. If you're interested in reading any of my posts, you can find them here. There isn't much there right now, but check back often--my next post will be up this week!

Contest! | Cans for Comments & Holiday Food Drive

Over the holidays, I did my 2nd Annual Food Drive as well as participated in Cans for Comments. In the first food drive, I collected over 40 pounds of food to donate to Loudoun Interfaith Relief. This year, the goal was to collect at least 100--and I made it! Here is a shot of the whole donation. I had planned on taking photos the whole way, all the way to the donation site, but juggling my two kids, navigating semi-plowed streets, and hauling 100 + pounds of food proved to be a bit of a hindrance to the picture taking.
So, now the fun part--Leave a comment here on the blog with your guess as to the total weight of the food donation. The winner who comes closest to the correct total weight without going over will receive a $100 Amie Otto Photography gift card! The hint is that I exceeded the goal of 100 pounds. I'll leave the guessing open for the next week and post the winning guess by 2/17/10. Good Luck!
