Baby Zane is 8 months old!

Remember this cutie?   He’s growing fast and has the sweetest disposition.  Here are a few of my favorite shots from our recent session:

I love his serious face…Zane only cried once for a couple minutes when he hit his head and went right back to playing.

Baby Jack is 5 years old!

It’s been 2.5 years, but who could ever forget baby Jack?  I was so excited to catch up with Jack and his family recently and shoot a bit of video and photos.  Seeing Jack as a normal, crazy 5 year old makes it difficult to even imagine that he had such a rough start at life. Take a look at Jack and this sweet little sister, Anika, in this “day in the life” video followed by a few photos below.

Here is the MAGIC LINK to view the video larger on

Jill Myers who?

You may have already noticed some of the gradual changes to my site.  I stopped taking on weddings more than a year ago and am phasing out my portraits now as well.  I’ve spent nearly twelve years working full-time while managing my photography business on the side.  I had the pleasure of marrying my best friend nine months ago and we’ve been keeping ourselves busy building our life together.  Though I still love photography, I’d like to simplify things and not give up any of my weekends with my family.  I still have a few portraits planned and personal projects, so I do want to keep my blog going…it will just be a bit different.

I’ll end this post with one of my favorite pics from our wedding by the amazingly talented Theresa Choi.

Julian & Giancarlo | Autumn Farm Portraits

Now at age 2 and 4, Giancarlo and Julian are a bundle of energy.  They had so much fun checking out all the activities at Montpelier Farms, though not without a bit of drama and competition as you would expect between siblings. = )

Here is Giancarlo showing off his handsome, serious face:

A rare sitting still moment….Whee!Mama and her baby:Papa and his big boy…
Boys will be boys….

Happy Fall everyone….Winter is right around the corner!

Baby EJ is One! | Pumpkin Patch Portraits

Remember little EJ?  He is just the happiest guy as you’ll see below.  Hurricane Sandy pushed us to reschedule our original session to this past Sunday, which was a sunny, brisk autumn day.  We met at Montpelier Farms in Upper Marlboro, which has all sorts of activities for kids and families.

Aren’t they an adorable family?

I love his big grin and all those teeth!Baa!Feel the love….
