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.

Three graduates and no (official) celebrations for this Class of 2020 does not diminish their accomplishments. Congrats all around and especially on a […]

With a college graduate of my own I’ve had first hand insight into the sense of loss for the class of 2020, missing out on the traditions and rituals of senior spring, last concerts or sports events, the senior nights, the banquets and parties, the handshakes and hugs, the walk across the stage. And then […]

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.
