The Supreme Court steps were cordoned off for a very important looking wedding party, the sun was blaring, the wind was crazy, a huge black cloud appeared out of nowhere and dumped ten minutes worth of sudden rain on us (while the weather app insisted that it was partly cloudy), and did I mention it […]

It’s always funny to me that I have to drive half an hour to Old Town Alexandria for a “European vibe” in my images. Old Town in particular, with its cute red brick alleys and (a few) cobblestone streets, gets overrun with photographers, especially during the busy, pre-holiday season. LITERALLY HALF OF MY NATIVE GERMANY […]

Joyful is the word that best describes this stunning Arlington High School Senior. What a great session with Sonia on a warm afternoon last October on – you guessed it – Capitol Hill. Scroll down and check out her cream colored blouse, and then try to convince me that it should not be sold in […]

If you get the impression that I spent a large chunk of last fall on Capitol Hill photographing brilliant and gorgeous High School Seniors – you’re not entirely wrong. Here are a few highlights of Stella’s Senior Session from this past October. Stella will be graduating from the Madeira School this spring. Join me in […]

What better venue than the Kennedy Center for a theatre student! Most teens aren’t early risers, and I am always deeply appreciative (and in awe) when High Schoolers agree to meet me early in the morning for best light and fewest distractions. Thank you, thank you to Jo for getting up early on a Saturday […]

Meeting early in the morning, before tourists or staffers start flooding the place, is one of the key ingredients of a successful photo shoot on Capitol Hill. Kudos to the lovely Grace for getting up at the crack of dawn this past October to kick off her Senior Session at the United States Botanic Garden. […]

Rachel’s request for her Senior Session last fall was for something urban and cool. After some deliberation we decided on Georgetown as our venue – a touch spiced up from the more traditional dreamy pastel of its leafy neighborhood streets. We ended up with a huge gallery of images. Enjoy some of my favorites – […]

This Senior Session turned out to be a dream come true: A quiet weekend morning on Capitol Hill, overcast skies, a stunning Senior who not only S.L.A.Y.E.D her posing, but was able to change clothes in a heartbeat for – count ’em – four (yes, FOUR!) different outfits. Enjoy some of my favorite shots of […]

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 […]

Sophia’s mom found me on google after a miscommunication with another photographer that ended in a disappointing no-show. Such a situation is no fun, but I am sooo glad she found me and that we had the opportunity to capture Sophia’s NCS Senior pictures on a beautiful and sunny afternoon in DC. As serendipity would […]
