Just last year, Emily and I had a blast during her amazing Grad Session on the Marymount University campus in Arlington. So when she asked me if I were available to travel to Charlottesville to commemorate her graduate degree from the University of Virginia this spring, I did not hesitate one second. And what an […]

Throwback to this past spring with tulips 🌷and access to the Supreme Court in DC. Check out some of my favorite shots of this beautiful Arlington Senior on Capitol Hill. Always worth getting up and out early for a classic setting. Congratulations and best wishes to the beautiful Nora on her path ahead.

What a radiant young woman this lovely McLean High School Graduate 🎓has grown into. I have photographed Penelope and her family many times over the years and it was so much fun to spend a full session dedicated to just her, capturing her beautiful spirit. Check out some of my favorite shots from her session, […]

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 🎓at the Lincoln Memorial. If she continues to address […]

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. […]
