Welcome to Heather Soskin Photography!
I first met Jen and Tabb when their first daughter was 5 months old. They were the most adorable family, so you can imagine how excited I was to see them again when they came back this past weekend with there now 3 year old and 5 month old little girls. When they walked in the door I couldn't believe how much their 2nd little girl looked so much like her big sister when I last saw her! We had a great time catching up! And although baby sister wasn't too sure about the girl with the camera, we still managed to get some adorable shots of her, her big sister and the whole gorgeous family!
Meet Kara! We worked together many years ago before I "retired" to stay home with my little ones. She is one of the most talented people I have known. Kara is a singer/songwriter and performs locally in the DC area music scene. Her voice if just as beautiful as her character and I was so honored that she asked me to photograph her. There are soo many gorgeous images from her shoot that I had a hard time narrowing them down for this post, hence, there are a few more "sneak peeks" in this post than normal. =) Thank you so much Kara for making the drive out to the country for your session! Can't wait to see you again!
ROCK IT OUT, KARA!

So we set out to have a beautiful photo session on a gorgeous piece of property not far from town. It has a few really cool buildings, space to run and trees galore! As I pulled up the stone driveway I saw what I knew I would eventually run into one day. The lawn crew. Yep, we had picked the same day as they did and all the tractors were out to manicure the lovely lawn. So I did what all photographers have to do at some point and just worked around them. We walked up the driveway a bit and found a treed area to set up and I snapped away! These 2 kiddos were awesome! They never complained and even battled the gnats...couldn't ask for better little ones!
I just loved his little face on this one!!! Although big sister wasn't too amused. =)
I photographed this little guy along with his sister this past week, but before we took the "formal" photos, his mom wanted to get some with a pirate theme for his birthday. I have been taking his pics since he was a newborn and he's always been just a little bit shy around me. He wasn't much of a talker and didn't really crack too many smiles even though I really, really tried! Not anymore...he was rockin' this session! Smiled, posed and even said my name for the first time!! (or at least that I had heard) It was awesome! Way to go, Jack! I know mom is going to LOVE these!!
CUTEST PIRATE EVER!
Craig & Mari | Married!
I was so thrilled to share Craig and Mari's special day with them and their families! I wish you both all the best in the world! xoxo
After the ceremony, we heading to the Comus Inn in Dickerson, Maryland where I met the rest of the family. You can just tell that they love each other so much! Craig's sisters were there to welcome Mari into the family by presenting her and Craig with their mother's ring. It was absolutely heart-warming!
Beautiful couple and a breathtaking view!
Mari chose Cherry Blossoms as the theme of the wedding (and since it's Cherry Blossom season here in the DC region, it was perfect!), so both her bouquet and cake were decorated with the beautiful blossom!!
Craig's mom's ring.
