The Supreme Court steps were cordoned off for a very important looking wedding party, the sun was blaring, the wind was crazy, a huge black cloud appeared out of nowhere and dumped ten minutes worth of sudden rain on us (while the weather app insisted that it was partly cloudy), and did I mention it […]

The Cherry Blossoms at the Tidal Basin set the scene for one of the most iconic looks in DC. They are also one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Nation’s Capital. You’ve got to get up early to beat the influx of visitors and joggers and to catch the most magical light. These […]

It’s always funny to me that I have to drive half an hour to Old Town Alexandria for a “European vibe” in my images. Old Town in particular, with its cute red brick alleys and (a few) cobblestone streets, gets overrun with photographers, especially during the busy, pre-holiday season. LITERALLY HALF OF MY NATIVE GERMANY […]

One of the beauties of the Washington area is that autumn can be seemingly endless. 🍁🍂I always think of it as payback for the miserably sweaty summers – that fall here goes on and on, well beyond Thanksgiving. (Socially distanced Thanksgiving dinner on the patio? 🦃 – No problem). It took just a little bit […]

What a fun afternoon it was to work with this good-looking family last fall as Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna was showing off with gorgeous light and splendid fall colors. 🍁🍂 Mark Twain (supposedly) once said that golf was a good walk spoiled. I’d like to think of my photo sessions as a good walk […]

Putting together this blog, I very much remember, and can literally feel, the bone chilling temperatures of this very bright and freezing day-before-Thanksgiving session last fall. Kudos to this lovely and great-looking family for braving the morning chill and allowing me to capture these sweet moments together. Sometimes it takes a few breaks with coats […]

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 […]

Big Mazel Tov to William and his family on his Congregation Etz Hayim Bar Mitzvah. The amount of hard work that goes into preparing for a B’nai Mitzvah is truly awe inspiring. Can you see the pure *J*O*Y* in William’s eyes for finally reaching his big day? Congratulations to the proud parents as well. It […]

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 […]
