wintergreen, va

January 21, 2010 | Filed Under family photos, friends, travel | 1 Comment 

our family took a trip this past weekend with a group of other young families to one of our favorite spots – wintergreen, a ski resort located in the virginia mountains about three hours’ drive from the DC area. i’ve been there twice before – once with my husband, before we had musa, and once last summer, to shoot this wedding. we had a wonderful time – most of all, watching our children enjoy themselves, but also enjoying some winter sports, good company, good food and lasting memories. naturally i took my camera along… though here i am sharing just a few images of my own family (like musa on the bungee-trampoline!), and mostly some of the breathtaking scenery at wintergreen – utterly magical in the snow and fog, and exhilarating in the winter sunlight under a blue sky.

tilt-shift musa

played around with my tilt-shift lens the morning i had to return it. i still have a lot to learn with this lens, but it sure is fun….

(this first shot is actually with the 35L, not the tilt-shift…)

i’ve been finishing up the processing for sam and sanjana’s two events and just wanted to share a random selection of a few more favorites from both events!
one of these images – the horizontal of the chandelier, was taken by my assistant-for-the-day, fasiha khan – loved the image, thought i would share it here too! thanks so much, fasiha, for all your help :)

maryam: four months old!

January 7, 2010 | Filed Under baby, friends | 2 Comments 

i haven’t had a chance to blog about baby maryam in a while, but her monthly portrait sessions are going great and as you can see she’s QUITE the happy camper for the most part! it’s so exciting to watch her grow like this, and such an honor to be the one to capture the first year of her life this way. all the smiles you see here are thanks to grandma, who managed to get some fantastic giggles out of maryam while i was snapping away! towards the end of the session, though, she discovered her lower lip was more fun to suck on than to smile with :) maryam, auntie ayesha loves you lots!
