It’s hard to believe looking at these images, but trust me when I tell you that it was downright cold and windy on this early May morning in Georgetown. What a trooper this newly minted McLean High School graduate was to tough out the bitter breeze in her cute little dresses and sandals when she […]

Some clients just seem to effortlessly *SLAY* their photo sessions. I met Avery several years ago when her mom drummed up the whole family of six for a fall photo session. Even back then she was the rare middle schooler who wasn’t just not awkward but outright confident in front of the lens. So it […]

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. […]

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 […]

The last time I took this young lady’s pictures she was just a little girl sitting in her Daddy’s lap. Imagine my surprise when we met up at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna for her Senior photos a few days ago on a sunny spring afternoon, and I had to look waaayyy up to her. Thankfully […]

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 […]

At its best, 2020 taught us patience, resiliency, adaptability, and a new appreciation of things we had taken for granted. (We all know what it brought us at its worst). I am very grateful to my clients who trusted me to take the necessary precautions and asked me to take their families’ and children’s photos this […]

To say that this young lady rocked her Senior Session would be quite the understatement. And what a perfect day it was, right at the transition from late summer to early fall. Thank goodness that blogs don’t limit the number of images – that would have been a truly tough assignment. Wishing this radiant High […]

There were moments this fall when I considered pitching a tent at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna. It’s a favorite for photographers and clients alike (definitely not a secret), with its well-kept grounds, variety of settings, easy access and reasonable fees. Within it nearly 100 acres it features native plants, meadows with wildflowers, grasses of […]

When your silver anniversary coincides with your daughter’s senior year of college, it calls for a photo session to commemorate both occasions at once. In the last twenty or so years our families have mostly known each other in swimsuits and goggles, laboring up and down 25 meter lanes of chlorinated water, some, I should […]
