Mavis + Sylvea | Engaged Last Sunday was cold. Very cold. Thankfully, I was inside shooting some pet portraits with Santa for the Humane Rescue Alliance at the Hotel Monaco. Here’s the complete gallery for your viewing pleasure (because animals are the best). Due to some unfortunate scheduling mistakes on my part, I had to zip on over to the Jefferson Memorial for the engagement shoot a half hour after the pet shoot ended. Even though the tidal basin was essentially a wind tunnel, the shoot went really well. Mavis and Sylvea were super brave with their clothing choices and willingness to be freezing cold for the good of the shoot : ) Here are some of my favorites.
