What a radiant young woman this lovely McLean High School Graduate 🎓has grown into. I have photographed Penelope and her family many times over the years and it was so much fun to spend a full session dedicated to just her, capturing her beautiful spirit. Check out some of my favorite shots from her session, […]

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 […]

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 […]

When Evan’s mom reached out to me about College Senior and Graduation photos, I didn’t hesitate one second. I’ve known Evan for years, not just as a client, but because he and my own son used to play music together in the brass section of the outstanding McLean High School bands. Also, I knew that […]

Joyful is the word that best describes this stunning Arlington High School Senior. What a great session with Sonia on a warm afternoon last October on – you guessed it – Capitol Hill. Scroll down and check out her cream colored blouse, and then try to convince me that it should not be sold in […]

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 […]
