The Supreme Court steps were cordoned off for a very important looking wedding party, the sun was blaring, the wind was crazy, a huge black cloud appeared out of nowhere and dumped ten minutes worth of sudden rain on us (while the weather app insisted that it was partly cloudy), and did I mention it […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

These toddlers-to-be twins were just the cutest – double trouble just after their first birthday. They were so busy exploring their immediate environment, such as their parents’ hair, and checking whether any of the colorful plants were edible, as well as practicing their independent mobility, that I had to pull the entire repertoire of tricks […]

If you think wrangling four kids is hard, try seven. It was such a pleasure to meet this wonderful family last month for a Capitol Hill session together with their three host children from Colombia. Thank you for the privilege of letting me document a sliver of their summer in the US. Had to pull […]

“When is the best time for a photo session?” is a frequently asked question by my clients. During the summer months, the answer is usually “the earlier the better.” Early morning sessions have become among my favorites. The day feels new and unspoiled, and has a freshness and sense of purpose to it, I haven’t […]
