When your kids are older it’s often hard to find time together, much less the leisure for a family photo shoot. (I have been living the “kids-all-over-the-place-life” for a few years now). This lovely family chomped at the bit for a family/senior session combo when their son was home for a few days from college. […]

I first met Olivia two years ago for her High School Senior pictures. That’s when I learned that Oboists make their own reeds. I still find the notion of creating your own tools for your craft immensely fascinating. (Like, what would the equivalent be for photography? Make my own lens?) Since then she’s spent time […]

Kyla absolutely * K I L L E D * her Senior Session at the Lincoln Memorial earlier this month. And proves that it is SO WORTH IT to rise and shine at the crack of dawn. (Which she is quite used to as a member of the McLean HS crew team – albeit without […]

It couldn’t have been a sunnier or brighter Easter Sunday morning for this lovely family. So fun to see them again this year after we decided to cancel last spring due to COVID. Meadowlark was still abloom with their cherry trees (which are a week or so behind the ones downtown) so there were more […]

This session is so special to me because this sweet young woman and her mom travelled all the way from Pennsylvania to DC for her High School Senior pictures. Of all the photographers in the DMV, they chose ME to take them. Sincere thanks to the amazing Alicia Lacey for the reference. I take everyone’s […]

If there ever was a mother of all family sessions, this was it. This lovely family was visiting DC from California for a few days and used the opportunity to update their family photos and create a visual travel diary at the same time. I enjoy sharing my love for this city as well as […]

What a way to start off the week! I was so happy that Elizabeth asked to move up her senior session – originally scheduled for May – to this week. The conditions don’t get any more ideal with sunny afternoon skies, comfortable temperatures and everyone else gathering at the Tidal Basin. And did you know […]

Some twists and turns in 2020 had me set up shop in the homeland for a while. After 25 years in the US, I am spending my first winter in a quarter century in Germany (our annual trips were almost always in the summertime). It’s the ultimate test of how deep the love to the […]

And here they are, the 25 families I had the privilege to photograph in 2020. (Two families requested to keep their photos private). It’s been a tough year, but you couldn’t tell looking at all these beautiful people. I am so happy that I was able to capture so much love and joy amidst these […]
