I first met this lovely young woman a couple of years ago when I photographed what I called her “Quinceañitzvah” – her coming of age celebration blending the traditions of each of her parents. I figured out very quickly that she was somebody special: in lieu of (what usually would be copious) gifts, Lydia requested […]
When you rock a white dress this effortlessly, you make a photographer’s job very easy (and her a little bit jealous, too). Check out the late summer session of this radiant Madeira senior in beautiful Georgetown.
If I had to characterize this session in one word, I would call it “sunkissed.” The summer sun made a very strong appearance after days of changing weather forecasts that kept us guessing. Rain?

What a session! I have known Samantha (and her family) since she and my daughter started kindergarten together so this shoot was a bit emotional for me, too.

During the summer months, the answer is usually “the earlier the better.” Early morning sessions have become among my favorites. The day feels new and unspoiled, and has a freshness and sense of purpose to it, I haven’t […]
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 […]
Every year I photograph a number of wonderful local High School Seniors from Fairfax and Arlington County schools. In the photos below you get to meet many of them, classes of 2019 and 2020. As the mother of three GenZ kids, I feel very close and connected to these teenagers and young adults. Here’s my […]
