Another little something that I didn't have a chance to share last fall--portraits for The Agnes Irwin School magazine. I loved meeting these inspiring girls and educators and helping to tell their stories!

I can't decide--they are all my favorite! :) What a treat to see this lovely girl again last week at one year (a year that went much too quickly, I must say!). <3

Thinking of a winter session? Now is the time. As you can see, the light is simply spectacular!

Nothing makes me happier than documenting a family's history--knowing that someday, far into the future, they'll say to one another "remember all of the photos of us in the doorway of the old house?"  How much (and much too quickly) they have grown!  Not pictured: the photos when Miss K. was not yet standing, and the ones before she graced us with her presence. :) Thank you, S. family!

One of the highlights of my fall was photographing Amaya and her family for American Girl magazine. You might have heard a little bit of their story on ABC News, in The Washington Post, or on The View a few months ago as well.

I am lucky to be continually inspired by the families I photograph, but this one will forever have a place in my heart!

It's finally that time of year! Time to share all of the summer/fall images that I just could not find time to share in the midst of the rush. It's also time for a very special e-mail coming soon to clients!

As I sift through last year's images for upcoming projects, I find so many images that make me pause, laugh, and remember the past year. Do you recall the last time you felt such joy? And at a leaf, no less? Love him!

Stay tuned for more exciting news about the year ahead (ahem, it is also the TENTH anniversary of Joyce Smith Photography)!

I'm pretty hilarious. ;)  p.s. it helps if you are two.

As always, the blog has been neglected this year as fall portrait season is in full swing.  I am nearly fully booked for the year with just a couple of weekday openings in November and early December.  Still hoping for a session this year, send me an e-mail today! 

Looking forward to winter (really!) when I have time to share all of the work from this summer and fall!

It's hard to believe how quickly time has flown from my very first maternity session with this family when they were expecting baby #1, to our recent newborn session.

Isn't she beautiful? And what a lucky girl to have not one but two fun big brothers to look out for her!

Thank you, A. family--it is always, always a treat to see you!!
