When Oma and Opa come to visit from Germany 🇩🇪, you get all dressed up, schlepp to DC through rush hour traffic and road closures on a hot weekday evening, fight for a parking spot on Capitol Hill and arrive all relaxed and giddy for a fun family session. Right? – Yes, right! Check out […]

This wonderful family has been a loyal client since I photographed the little girls’ baptism as babies. I am so grateful for my clients who value quality family photographs reflecting and documenting the many stages of their growing family. You can’t hold on to the moment but you can freeze it in a beautiful portrait […]

I remember thinking how amazing it was that we have been able to just show up at the door of the Supreme Court of the United States to take professional photos. Over the years, I have had the privilege more times than I can count to meet clients at the top of the steps, for […]

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 […]

These two were such a blast to work with during their maternity session at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens last fall as they were enjoying the remaining weeks of being expectant parents. I’ve known Cassie for a few years now in a professional capacity, as we’ve worked together on high level events by the Prevent Cancer Foundation, […]

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 […]

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.

This wonderful family has been with me through my photo business journey from the very beginning. The gorgeous young women on the right, who are now in and out of college, were tiny little girls when I first took their pictures. It is such a privilege and genuine joy and fun for me (camera shake […]
