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 […]

Clients often ask me whether we can tag on a couple of family pictures to a Senior Session and the answer is “absolutely yes!” So much fun to meet Finley’s whole family at the start of this lovely afternoon session at a new-to-me location, Burke Lake Park, last October, where we were able to catch […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 – […]

Enjoy some of my favorite shots of […]

If any family can pull off having a family session at 7 am, within 24 hours before their oldest daughter leaves for college, AND show up and look like THIS, it is my wonderful neighbors. The Kennedy Center rewarded them with color coordinated columns.

Northern Virginia Bar Mitzvah What a great time documenting Owen’s Bar Mitzvah – rehearsal at Temple Rodef Shalom in Falls Church and a rockin’ and rollin’ party at Jammin Java in Vienna. So proud of all these kids for their discipline with mask wearing during all the festivities and for not letting their spirit be […]

Even if I had tried, I doubt it would have been possible to take a bad picture of this stunning McLean High School Senior. Thank you for meeting with me super early on a hot August day for this wonderful Capitol Hill Session. As it were, it turned out to be just in the nick […]

The count is on. So glad I got to kick off the Class of 2022 with this fine McLean High School Senior in one of my favorite locations in the city, on Capitol Hill, thus following in the footsteps of his big brother in a location that we haven’t been able to take for granted […]
