Looking back at this session from the current perspective of a muggy Washington summer day it is hard to believe just how bitterly cold it was on the morning after Easter when the lovely Melina and I met for her College Grad Session from Salisbury College ๐ŸŽ“at the Lincoln Memorial. If she continues to address […]

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 […]

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 […]

This spring and summer, I have met and worked with so many amazing High School and College Seniors from around the region (even as far away as New York) for sessions in Washington, DC. And the Class of 2021 keeps on giving, each with their own personality and individual touch. Check out this knock-out gorgeous […]

I met Caleb’s big sister a couple of years ago for senior photos and was thrilled when their mom contacted me for a session commemorating his graduation from North Point High School in Waldorf, MD. Because it coincided with the parents’ 25th wedding anniversary, it was a no-brainer to bundle these two auspicious occasions into […]

I clearly hit the jackpot this year with all my stunning seniors. Check out this early morning May session at the Lincoln Memorial and Constitution Gardens with Kylie, all around star athlete and gorgeous McLean High School graduate, class of 2021.

Michelle contacted me in early April about college graduation photos at the Lincoln. GWU is the ONLY COLLEGE IN TOWN without an in-person graduation so it was only fair to splurge on a grad photo session with bells and whistles. She drove down from her home in Long Island the night before our session just […]

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, […]

I first met Olivia two years ago for her High School Senior pictures. That’s when I learned that Oboists make their own reeds. I still find the notion of creating your own tools for your craft immensely fascinating. (Like, what would the equivalent be for photography? Make my own lens?) Since then she’s spent time […]
