One year photos

I've come across a lot of posts lately about the important role that a professional photographer can have in documenting family life. I had no idea how cherished Mel's photos would become until she joined us for Roscoe's birth and I viewed our new family of three through her lens. They are the most meaningful photos that we own and I am still brought to tears when I view Roscoe's birth slide show.

Our photo shoots with Mel are wonderfully relaxed, and so much fun. We always feel more like we're spending the afternoon catching up with a good friend than fulfilling a contract. We love Mel, and we love her work. Over this last incredible year, she's become so very special to us and we're grateful to her for introducing us to her passion and for turning us on to what will surely be a lifetime of fantastic photography.

Last week we had a blast on the National Mall for Roscoe's one year photo shoot. To view the slide show click here (and be sure to turn your volume up!!).

Here are just a few of my favorites!

Have you ever hired a professional photographer? Who are your favorites?


  1. The pictures are beautiful!!!

  2. Thank you, Jacqueline, for your beautiful words! I have loved shooting for your family and I agree that its a lot more like hanging out with dear friends than a job. I'm so happy we have been able to share the journey of parenthood together (from minute one!) and I can't wait to see where it takes us...

  3. These pictures are so cool!!! :)
