There was lots to celebrate in this family. The graduation from Marymount University for the oldest sister as well as the promotions to Middle and High Schools, respectively, for the younger two. Three graduates and no (official) celebrations for this Class of 2020 does not diminish their accomplishments. Congrats all around and especially on a […]

With a college graduate of my own I’ve had first hand insight into the sense of loss for the class of 2020, missing out on the traditions and rituals of senior spring, last concerts or sports events, the senior nights, the banquets and parties, the handshakes and hugs, the walk across the stage. And then […]

I have been missing my Families and High School seniors SO MUCH this spring. Still hoping that I can schedule photo sessions starting in June. I am so ready. In the meantime I thought that some of you might like to try your hands on some portraiture yourselves. After all, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day […]

My sole cherry blossom shoot from 2020. Actually, my only spring family shoot of 2020. So grateful that I got to work with this sweet family before things went downhill very quickly and we all had to go into captivity. It already seems like a million years ago.

Update Dear all: I really, really dislike doing this to you, but after much agonizing following the Governor’s announcement earlier this afternoon (March 23), I decided to cancel the Front Steps Project for now. It is just not worth the health risk, even if that risk is minimal. The Covid-19 situation is expected to get […]

Classic DC for classy girls, classes 2016-2020. Going through the various galleries of these past senior girls’ sessions gave me goosebumps. Such beautiful people, inside and out, so much talent, promise and bright futures. I thoroughly enjoy my senior session outings with these young adults, chatting about their High School experiences, the ups and downs […]

“Forty and Fabulous” was the theme for Randa’s auspicious DC Penthouse Party, and a fabulous celebration it was at the top of the wharf. The penthouse of LaVie in DC provided a stylish, contemporary indoor and outdoor setting with breathtaking 360 degree views of the waterfront and the city, including – strangely enough – into […]

The Washington area offers an array of unique portrait venues. Many of my High School Seniors opt for the classic look of white marble and clean lines, the perfect mix of visual interest and focus on the subject. I shoot at a lot of different locations for different looks, and the “classic DC” is one […]
