I knew from the moment Abby reached out to me that this engagement session would be a match made in heaven. These two bring out the best in each other, as well as in others. What an epic session we had up on Capitol Hill, capturing some classic DC looks on one of those chilly […]

The Cherry Blossoms at the Tidal Basin set the scene for one of the most iconic looks in DC. They are also one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Nation’s Capital. You’ve got to get up early to beat the influx of visitors and joggers and to catch the most magical light. These […]

Putting together this blog, I very much remember, and can literally feel, the bone chilling temperatures of this very bright and freezing day-before-Thanksgiving session last fall. Kudos to this lovely and great-looking family for braving the morning chill and allowing me to capture these sweet moments together. Sometimes it takes a few breaks with coats […]

The biggest show of trust for a family photographer are clients who return year after year for their family portraits. When those clients are middle schoolers, the compliment becomes outsized. It means that – most likely – I don’t suck. 🙂 These boys are both in middle school this year. I’ve loved watching them grow […]

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 – […]

My headshot sessions typically don’t make the blog but this one was just that much extra special. It took a while to coordinate before we finally found a time when all seven members of the Housing Policy Council were able to meet for updated team photos and headshots for their website. As a one-woman small […]

Will’s High School Graduation was the perfect excuse for a session with the whole family. And what better setting for a timeless photo than the doric columns of the Lincoln Memorial, even on a busy Sunday morning, with more than a few tourists around. So much fun photographing three generations celebrating Will’s graduation from Potomac […]

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 […]
