Self Portraits have become my way of not going crazy. Even though we do the same thing everyday, I still have a challenge to figure out how to shoot it and how to make it better or do it differently next time around. I have something to work on that’s just mine. Now I’m starting to think about what I want to say so they can become more than a just a diary of quarantine life. 🤔
P.S @moment.us_photo Thank you for the biscuit recipe! It was amazing!

1 "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" Read Aloud

I’m uploading video of read alouds of the pigeon books by Mo Willems. These are going to be part of a writing unit to help kids write their own pigeon books!

This is the first video in a writing unit for Kindergarten and First Grade students based on The Pigeon books by Mo Willems. I was a K/1 teacher in New York ...

A year and a half ago I started a motherhood project that wasn’t quite right. Last year I attempted a self portrait project that wasn’t working either. I’m giving it another go and I have to let go of a lot of technical stuff to use a documentary approach. I’m just glad that I’ll be in our 2020 family album.

I’m looking through some old photos today. I’ve always like this one. I feel like he’s on stage giving a speech. I don’t remember what he was saying but it looks like he could be rehearsing “Hamlet.”

I spent a morning documenting Dana and her kids during their homeschool studies for the @dcmoms blog last fall. This was a break before they made sandwiches and tea to accompany their poetry time. While she worked with one child, the others busied themselves with playdough and roller blades.

Going back to where I started to use my phone to shoot everything and anything that was interesting to me was a turning point for me last year. I spent half the year in my class struggling to do things that weren’t really me. Then I had to go back to the beginning and it reminded me how I got here in the first place. I’m an inanimate object street photographer. Still life suggests setting things up. I’m too scared to photograph people I don’t know. But I like the treasure hunt of finding things that are interesting and collecting them with a photograph.

The balancing act of snacks and buckling a kid into her car seat. I’ve been there. You’ve been there. At some point they’ll do this themselves. But for now we have super parent skills. They deserve to be recorded for your family history.

There’s something about this moment that I just love. I’m not quite sure what it is. I noticed this a lot when we had to pick our favorite 30 photographs for the last assignment of my year long class. I went with my gut when a photo made me feel something. Before this class I thought you had to come up with a word to replace “something” and now “something” is good enough for me.

I’ve been working on this triptych project since last summer. I’ve had no idea what it’s meant until a couple of days ago. I think it’s about slowing down, noticing the beauty in the world, noticing the small things and how my daughter reminds me to do that. Or it’s something about memories or dreams or maybe it’s about all of those things. I don’t really know yet. And that’s ok. I’m having fun with this. It feels like me and that’s what matters most. Thank you @kirstenlphotog for helping me get here. 💕

An Afternoon with Kim's Family | Northern Virginia Family Photography — Northern VA Family Photographer Bridget Eldridge

Kim wrote that being a stay at home mom can feel like Groundhog Day. I totally get it. But as a photographer I see that her awesome mom skills are also on repeat and that is something to be very, very proud of!

This photo essay of Kim, a stay at home mom in Northern Virginia, and her preschool-aged children. It is part of series that I did with the DC Area Moms Blog. Kim wrote, “I am a stay at home mom to two preschool-aged kids, 13 months apart. These days are long and often feel like Groundhog Day, t

Mom said a big reason she wanted to do a day in the life was because she wasn’t in a lot of their family photos. As someone who is also not in a lot of her family photos, I was very happy I could make these for her.

Getting Ready for School | Bethesda Family Photographer — Northern VA Family Photographer Bridget Eldridge

One of my favorite parts of this session was that the two year old woke up in full princess attire. Not just the Elsa dress, but jewelry too. So amazing! www.bridgeteldridgephotography.com/blog/bethesda-family-photographer-getting-ready-for-school

This year I partnered with the DC Area Moms Blog to do a series of photo essays on moms’ everyday lives. I really wanted to celebrate everything that goes into being a mom—love, patience, hard work. Most of all, I wanted moms to feel seen. I am not a writer so I would love for you to go over and

2019 and 2016. Siblings relax with mom three years apart, both at 12 years old. It’s magical moment for me when I get to capture a moment that connects to a previous session. It connects the family’s stories to each other. It creates a larger narrative. I think that’s what’s special about documentary photography. I would print both of these and put them side by side in my house.

Get the Grandparents in the Frame | Washington DC Family Photographer — Northern VA Family Photographer Bridget Eldridge

My grandmother always found a way to regift every present back to my mom. She probably wouldn't have done that with photos! http://www.bridgeteldridgephotography.com/blog/washington-dc-family-photographer-grandparents

Being a grandparent is awesome. Before I became a mom I said, I’ll do it just so I can be a grandparent one day. They get to be a little more fun. They don’t have to discipline. And they just ENJOY their grandkids. Grandparents ooze love for their grandkids. There is pure enjoyment on their face...

I don’t think I’ll ever get over documenting kids growing up. In my mind, kids are all the same for a year. And then I see them and they are completely different.

Dads are fun. They really, really are. The older I get the more my memories become snippets. I think about climbing up my dads legs and doing a back flip. There’s a flicker of the movie theater and buying candy at CVS beforehand. Eating at Burger King. The time we played a father daughter soccer game and my dad kicked the ball SO FAR and SO HIGH. Food festivals and museums and car rides and pumpkin patches. They are all snippets now. That’s why photography matters to me.

What to Wear for your Day in the Life Session | Family Photographer Northern VA — Northern VA Family Photographer Bridget Eldridge

Whatever the f$(& you want. End of post.  Ha. OK. I do have seven recommendations.  Don’t plan what you are going to wear. Pick whatever you’re in the mood for that morning. Just like you would on any other day.  Please don’t match—this includes everyone w

"I always say that I have the fun part of the day – picking up my son from school! I get to see that big smile and get a really big, snuggly hug. We go home and have a snack while waiting for Dad to get home from work. We are so grateful that brBridget Eldridge Photography captured a typical evening in our household once we are all settled in."
