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 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.

A few weeks later, new clients […]

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. As the mother of three GenZ kids, I feel very close and connected to these teenagers and young adults. Here’s my […]
