Will’s High School Graduation was the perfect excuse for a session with the whole family. And what better setting for a timeless photo than the doric columns of the Lincoln Memorial, even on a busy Sunday morning, with more than a few tourists around. So much fun photographing three generations celebrating Will’s graduation from Potomac […]

Ever since I met Eloise at her brother’s Bar Mitzvah a couple of years ago, I couldn’t wait to photograph her big day. (Just look at the first photo below from her brother’s Bimah Session and you’ll know what I mean). This girl is so spirited and energetic, kind, funny, and smart – just pure […]

I met Caleb’s big sister a couple of years ago for senior photos and was thrilled when their mom contacted me for a session commemorating his graduation from North Point High School in Waldorf, MD. Because it coincided with the parents’ 25th wedding anniversary, it was a no-brainer to bundle these two auspicious occasions into […]

Sophia’s mom found me on google after a miscommunication with another photographer that ended in a disappointing no-show. Such a situation is no fun, but I am sooo glad she found me and that we had the opportunity to capture Sophia’s NCS Senior pictures on a beautiful and sunny afternoon in DC. As serendipity would […]

Check out this early morning May session at the Lincoln Memorial and Constitution Gardens with Kylie, all around star athlete and gorgeous McLean High School graduate, class of 2021.

I don’t remember how often we had to reschedule this shoot. Delays with the arrival of cap & gown, funky weather, sickness … but boy, the wait was so worth it. When we finally met at Emily’s alma mater, Marymount University, a thick cloud cover had turned the sky into a humongous soft box, providing […]

This session is such a great example for how a simple, clean backdrop can render elegant and timeless images. No need for dramatic land- or cityscapes or elaborate clothing, as long as the lighting priorities are fulfilled. Courtney rocked her session celebrating her graduation from HB Woodlawn in Arlington this summer, and I just love […]

I have rarely witnessed so much poise and maturity in a young girl who hadn’t even turned 13 when I took these photos of her. If her parents had told me she was a High School Senior, I wouldn’t have thought twice. Seriously, I still demand to see her birth certificate. So much love in […]
