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 […]

Check out this beautiful McLean High School Senior. We met on a weekday morning in Georgetown earlier this month only to discover that her dress perfectly coordinated with the pastel houses right by our meeting spot. It was kind of difficult to tear ourselves away from such a creative serendipity – who wouldn’t want to […]

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 […]

Scrolling through this gallery, one might think that Sofi and I had the Lincoln Memorial all to ourselves on a Saturday morning in April, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. The place was in fact teeming with photographers posing engaged couples and college grads in caps and gowns, directing families with young kids, […]

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. […]

Kyla absolutely * K I L L E D * her Senior Session at the Lincoln Memorial earlier this month. And proves that it is SO WORTH IT to rise and shine at the crack of dawn. (Which she is quite used to as a member of the McLean HS crew team – albeit without […]

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 […]
