These two were such a blast to work with during their maternity session at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens last fall as they were enjoying the remaining weeks of being expectant parents. I’ve known Cassie for a few years now in a professional capacity, as we’ve worked together on high level events by the Prevent Cancer Foundation, […]

The biggest show of trust for a family photographer are clients who return year after year for their family portraits. When those clients are middle schoolers, the compliment becomes outsized. It means that – most likely – I don’t suck. 🙂 These boys are both in middle school this year. I’ve loved watching them grow […]

Did you know that Mars, Incorporated not only makes a surprising number of the goodies that tempt us in our grocery and convenience stores, such as Snickers, Twix, Skittles, Starburst, M&M’s, Altoids, Wrigley gum and – my childhood favorite – Bounty (thankfully for my waistline this one is somewhat hard to find, so I always […]

Joyful is the word that best describes this stunning Arlington High School Senior. What a great session with Sonia on a warm afternoon last October on – you guessed it – Capitol Hill. Scroll down and check out her cream colored blouse, and then try to convince me that it should not be sold in […]

One of the bonuses of Ryan’s pandemic-delayed Bar Mitzvah was getting to document both the ceremony AND the party – pre-omicron, at the Westwood Country Club in Vienna – this past fall. It’s a photographer’s rare privilege to be clicking the shutter during the actual B’nai Mitzvah service, rather than the rehearsal a few days […]

If you get the impression that I spent a large chunk of last fall on Capitol Hill photographing brilliant and gorgeous High School Seniors – you’re not entirely wrong. Here are a few highlights of Stella’s Senior Session from this past October. Stella will be graduating from the Madeira School this spring. Join me in […]

Clients often ask me whether we can tag on a couple of family pictures to a Senior Session and the answer is “absolutely yes!” So much fun to meet Finley’s whole family at the start of this lovely afternoon session at a new-to-me location, Burke Lake Park, last October, where we were able to catch […]

What better venue than the Kennedy Center for a theatre student! Most teens aren’t early risers, and I am always deeply appreciative (and in awe) when High Schoolers agree to meet me early in the morning for best light and fewest distractions. Thank you, thank you to Jo for getting up early on a Saturday […]

Meeting early in the morning, before tourists or staffers start flooding the place, is one of the key ingredients of a successful photo shoot on Capitol Hill. Kudos to the lovely Grace for getting up at the crack of dawn this past October to kick off her Senior Session at the United States Botanic Garden. […]

Rachel’s request for her Senior Session last fall was for something urban and cool. After some deliberation we decided on Georgetown as our venue – a touch spiced up from the more traditional dreamy pastel of its leafy neighborhood streets. We ended up with a huge gallery of images. Enjoy some of my favorites – […]
