Shelly + Jason | DC Portrait Session

Jason and Shelly Yost are two pretty great people. I have actually known Shelly for years, but it’s been more than 5 years since I last saw her- and until our session, I had never met her husband, Jason. These two are doing great things in the DC Metro area. They founded New Rhythm Project, an organization that works to educate communities about orphaned and vulnerable children around the world, and works to care for orphans. Jason is also the singer/songwriter of the Jason Yost Band.

Jason and Shelly just celebrated their 5 year anniversary in October, so they wanted to do some portraits to mark this time in their lives. They chose DC because much of both their work and play takes place in this great city. We had a lot of fun traipsing around the city together and we spent more than 75% of the time laughing at one another. :)

We started at Eastern Market. 

Shelly brought this cute prop- the number of days they’ve been married. :)

I heart fall… and these two.

Seriously, you guys, those eyes! 


And by the end of the evening, the Capitol got a little lovelier…

The same day, I got to do a session with Shelly and Jason’s friends, Erica and Dave. I cannot wait to share those images with you next!
