Federal Hill Benches

Just got home from a quick get-away with Andrew and Frankie in Baltimore. It was nice to do something different over the weekend. We’re usually running a whole bunch house errands or have some kind of social event. This weekend we took the time for ourselves and spent some great quality time together.

This was on top Federal Hill right before we left. It was crazy windy and I’m so appreciated of my guys for hanging out with me while I was out doing what I love. But the last stop was Jack and Zach Food. Seriously the best pancakes ever.


Washington Monument Flags

I love mornings like this. Seriously, is there a better way to start off the day? I don’t think so. Theres something about a beautiful spring morning that makes you feel so good. Even when you’re stuck in traffic and really don’t want to go to work, how could you be upset when you’re looking at this amazingness?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all my irish and non-irish friends :)


District of Columbia War Memorial

Everytime I visit this memorial (which isn’t very often), I always think about Andrew and I’s engagement. We didn’t get engaged here, but we our good friend, Nat took our engagement pictures here. It’s such a beautiful memorial. When I was younger and we’d drive by it, I always thought it looked like a nice place to get married. You’re surrounded by trees and the beautiful memorial. Very little people visit here so it’d be perfect for a small wedding. I’m not sure if thats possible but it would be nice.

Funny, next week is Andrew and I’s 9 year dating anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been 9 years. Time just flies by. And I wouldn’t want to be flying with anyone else but him <3


Capitol Planet

I didn’t have much to do this weekend. Usually I’m busy running around with errands, home furniture shopping, or just catching up family and friends. This weekend had a little bit of that, but mostly just hanging out with Andrew and Frankie at home. It was nice. I was able to catch up on work but also watch some fun tutorials like this one from Lisa in the Arcanum.

I know on my blog I haven’t spoken much about it, but it’s a pretty big part of my photo life right now. Ever since I became a master in July, I feel I have grown so much as a photographer. I’m so grateful to be a part of such a great photo community to constantly push myself and see so much variety in images and creativity. One of the best parts is that I get to meet and hang out with people with the same interests as me all over the world! I love it! And seriously don’t know where I’d be without my cohort and the great Arcanum community.


DC War Memorial

The DC War Memorial is tucked away behind the Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool. I feel like not many people know about it or get to visit, but it’s still a beautiful memorial all on its own.


Gravelly Point Park

In an effort to explore new places with my camera, I was on the GW parkway this weekend. This was at Gravelly Point Park. A place I remember visiting a lot when I was in high school but haven’t really been back since.

It’s a nice area with a lot of families picnicking and lots of people running and biking along the trail. As far as taking panoramic views, I think I should of gone a little further down the trail. Either way, I think this is a cool vantage point of Reagan airport. Trying to capture the planes landing at sunset? Now, that took a little more patience.


Early Morning Light on the Jefferson Memorial

Not only is sunrise beautiful, but if you wait a little bit longer. 20 minutes sometimes 30 minutes, you’ll see this gorgeous light reflecting off of things and you’ll fall in love with the morning all over again.

Did that make sense? I dunno. Early morning light is just awesome sauce no matter how you put it :)


Cloud Streaks

Third day in a row for pretty epic sunrises. I love it! I love how they’ve all been so different but all beautiful at the same time.


Sunrise over the Jefferson Memorial

The first thing I did when I woke up in the morning was check my phone to see what the weather was like outside. The app said 21 degrees and mostly cloudy. Sounds like the perfect excuse to stay in bed, but I didn’t. We haven’t had any cloudy days recently and if there was any chance for a nice sunrise, today was going to be the day. I dragged myself out of bed and the first thing I said when I left my house was, “ohhh shizzle”. But in a good way :)

Hoping for some more of this when I wake up in the morning.
