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 […]

You’ve got to love a family with teens and young adults who are not just willing to meet at 7 in the morning on a Sunday (after a 30 minute drive no less), but are happy and smiley doing so. Of course, for active athletes such as this group, 7 am might feel like sleeping […]

Ever since I met Eloise at her brother’s Bar Mitzvah a couple of years ago, I couldn’t wait to photograph her big day. (Just look at the first photo below from her brother’s Bimah Session and you’ll know what I mean). This girl is so spirited and energetic, kind, funny, and smart – just pure […]

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 […]
