2010 Teen Design Fair

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

We photographed the 2010 Teen Design Fair at the Renwick Gallery earlier this week. Washington DC teens were invited to learn about careers from the National Design Awards winner, finalists and jurors. These professionals are working in the fields of fashion, industrial design, architecture, multimedia, and graphic design. The students met Jenna Lyons from J.Crew, John Jay, Behnaz Sarafpour, Tim Gunn from Project Runway – the keynote speaker, and many others. Capturing the teen’s faces as they met with their design idols was incredible and the designers seemed to really enjoy explaining what it takes to follow one’s dreams.
It was a great pleasure working with Occasions Caterers .
We love DC and hope to visit soon.

It has been almost two years since we photographed Orion. He was such a cute baby then. It was amazing seeing him all grown up! He loves Happy Feet and anything to do with water. The only disappoint was that Winterthur does not have any penguins!
We love documenting families over the years!

A lot has happened since we photographed Melissa & Dan’s wedding five years ago. Meet their three beautiful and lively boys. Enchanted Woods at Winterthur is a perfect place for a photo session on a hot summer day. The boys enjoyed all of the “kid size” housed and especially all the water features.

Melissa Sheets - Mike & Jana, Thank you so much for taking these amazing pictures! You did exactly what Dan and I wanted for our family...freeze this moment in time! We are so excited to have this beautiful day documented for life! xo Melissa

We truly enjoyed getting to know Ariel and her family. We spent time in her back yard playing with her dog. They were so cute together!
Greenville Country Club was a great back drop for the remainder of the session. Ariel will celebrate being a Bat Mitzvah here in October. We are looking forward to documenting your day!
