Infected Skateboards, Inc.

One of our favorite sessions ever!  We met Lisa and her two boys in Arlington, VA on a gorgeous October morning. Jordan and I had driven up the night before in some ridiculous rain, but knew it would be clear the next day, and that we’d have some serious fun shooting at a skatepark!  

Gabriel & Julian are all skateboarding, all the time.  So, Lisa decided to start a company that is now selling markers for designing your own deck.  We loved their designs, and we loved stalking them with our cameras all over the park.  And you know we had to grab some family shots when dad showed up. Now onto the photos!

 These are their own designs, done with the markers they’re selling.  The Infected logo looks awesome on the red board!


A few day-of details

Thank you all for letting us take non-stop photos of you…we’ll be back for more, maybe early next year? :)

meet (little) jordan and family

Jordan and I met little Jordan and her parents, her adorable cousin Ella & her daddy, and grandparents on a cool Saturday morning.  Jordan, with her beautiful blues, was an angel in front of the camera.  Check out a few of our favorites below.  These girls are the cutest!

Jordan and her curious big blues


 Love this look as she was trying to figure out our cameras while on mom’s lap :)


 She’s almost walking, and is so very proud of herself for standing! We got lots of adorable clapping shots as she stood here and there (in between froggy squats and crawling).


 Yay for standing!  She’ll be off running very soon.


 Crawling to Mindy’s camera :)




 Love this face! And the dirty hands from crawling about.


 Tosses and giggles


 This is Ella, showing us her sweet pose :)


 Any time I can get a shot with curls & lashes, I go for it


 It doesn’t get much cuter than this, right?


Thank you all for having us out, it was a beautiful morning!

ames and jess jewelry

First of all, head to Ames And Jess’ website and check them out.  They’re two amazing women who create and sell amazing things.

I’ve been thinking a lot about these gorgeous pieces from Ames And Jess, and had to share some of our favorite shots of some of our favorite pieces!  Jordan and I are in major countdown-to-wedding-day mode, as our day is now only four days away.  We’re meeting with Ames & Jess tomorrow evening to pick up my custom wedding necklace, and I am THRILLED to see what they’ve done for us!  There will be plenty of photos of the necklace, be sure of that. :)

We took a few shots of some select pieces from Ames And Jess’ fall collection.  Wanna see?  Yes, you do.  On to the photos!

Before shooting these pieces, we had an initial design consult with Amy (“Ames”) to discuss my custom necklace.  At this meeting she asked if I ever wear yellow gold, to which I basically replied, “No, never ever.”  I later saw the “Dotty Initial” necklace, and immediately retracted that statement.  LOVE it, and the Starburst necklace is also quite snazzy.


These are seriously rockin.  I so wish my ears were pierced so I could wear something like these, the lovely Paradise earrings.  We may have to remedy this non-pierced situation.  Gorgeous!


This is probably my favorite shot of the day.  The Big Island earrings are so much fun, and they really shine with these fall colors!


Ah, the Gunpowder Grey. These pearls are beautiful!


Simple and lovely. Love this “Beach Party” necklace.


This last one is just for me. My birdie was apparently feeling left out of the jewelry party…how could I not add a Dotty Hoop earring? :)


We hope you hop on over to the Ames And Jess site (they’re on facebook too), and check out more of their beautiful pieces.  We provided the homepage photos, and love those to pieces as well!  We know it’s only September, but we’re already thinking holidays…keep these ladies in mind when you’re ready to do some shopping!
