Life isn't totally serious when you're a boss.
Breaking up your feed of family Easter photos with some #hotnoodz
from last night 🍜
Walking 7 miles a day is becoming a favorite habit of mine.
We are, in fact, very sweaty (but there were free tacos at the end of that spin class, so who’s complaining?).
Picnic time at the Jefferson.
I've always been a fan of the color blue. When I saw this wall and the way the light was hitting, I just had to work with it. Luckily, I had a couple willing models there to help me show it off. Here is the fabulous Lucy and the ice cream wall at @swsodapopshop
Oh and happy anniversary to Lucy and her man! Here's to many more years! 🍾🥂
I went for a walk in the woods and met a dog named Sunshine - it was his birthday, and his elderly owner and I spent 20 minutes just talking about the wonder that is dogs. Tiny moments under blooming spring branches really can make a Tuesday lovely.
I've been kind of obsessed with catching the twinkle in people's eyes lately. I finally got Tazbah to show hers after a successful round of dad jokes! .

Thanks to the lovely @lakalista
for pointing out this vantage point for me ❤️
Walked 13 miles all around DC with these two yesterday, and now I can’t move my legs.
Note: I did not call my mother after eating this pastrami, egg, cheese, and spicy honey bagel (and not-pictured latkes), because I immediately collapsed into a food coma.
isn't the only spot to catch the pink lanterns for cherry blossom season. @thewharfdc
has a pretty impressive display as well. I almost like it better! Sorry City Center...
Congresswoman Pelosi was actually the one who insisted on this photo, which is pretty cool. What was even cooler was getting to spend the day with lots of genuinely dedicated and interesting congresswomen, congressmen, and their families and staff, while successfully reaching our goal of putting together over 1,000 care packages to be shipped overseas to deployed service members. All in a day’s work.

It was quiet without all the crowds.
Thanks to @clau_sdel
for inviting me along this morning! I almost bailed because of work assignments.
This morning was absolutely stunning! The cherry blossoms are almost gone, but you can still find a few if you look closely.
I'm gonna have to keep the stage light shots going here for a bit. This one gets a black and white to go with it. Not sure which I like better. 🤷♂️

Had an absolutely incredible dinner on @katieparla
‘s book tour at @officinadc
last night! As someone who lived on the border of Campania for 5 years, who worked for an Italian ethnic organization for 3 years, and whose family roots grow deep in the Puglia countryside, this cookbook is everything I love. It’s a testament to - if we’re being honest - the best regions of Italy that have the most delicious food and most vibrant local cultures, which are so often overlooked for flashier cities in the north.
A big thanks to Katie Parla for generally just being a badass in the food industry, and for working so hard to highlight recipes and stories from Italy’s south. And thanks to my Dad - the man who gave me my love of pasta - for driving 4 hours to share this meal and plenty of Italy stories with me ❤️

Tazbah may be in another state right now, but it doesn't mean she doesn't get a post from our shoot on Sunday! @thewharfdc
was still hopping with their #cherryblossomfestival2019
display best shot from ground level while being stepped on!
🌸 Stepping our way into Tuesday!
Tidal basin puddles in blue.
My newfound love is visiting the Tidal Basin after it rains! Nothing beats the random puddles for reflections.
We only have a short time before the cherry blossoms are gone, but we don't have to forget the beautiful backdrops they provide. .
Thanks to @g.abylynn
for being our model on Saturday! I hope you finally got warm after being out there so long.

Let's keep that cherry blossom high going as long as possible!
I've been shooting quite a bit lately and trying to nail down editing instead of using presets. Because of yesterday's shoot at the Tidal Basin, I was afforded the chance to create my own airy preset. I used it on a lot of the portraits and it turned out better than expected. .
Here is @deemasaad
in my new new airy preset with name TBD. Thanks to Deema for allowing me to capture your image!
Our advice? Get out and about - you never know what you could see and taste 🥃 🚲🍹
There are hundreds of naturally framed opportunities on the basin.
