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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

“I’m the photographer in the family and we have so many photos of my husband with the kids,” Bea told me when she scheduled a session with her three children. Dang, did this sound familiar! If you looked at our family photo albums you’d think that my husband single-handedly juggled our two+ decades of parenting: […]

For all of us the last five months have been filled with unprecedented emotions and challenges and we’ve seen the world change in ways most of us couldn’t have imagined in our wildest dreams. For many, these past months have brought suffering and unimaginable loss. We are all yearning for a sense of normalcy and […]

This is how a small business is supposed to work: client shares holiday card with co-worker. Co-worker is like “Wow, you guys look really great – who took these pictures?” Days later, co-worker calls and purchases a gift certificate for a family session as a present to his wife. A few weeks later, new clients […]

There was lots to celebrate in this family. The graduation from Marymount University for the oldest sister as well as the promotions to Middle and High Schools, respectively, for the younger two. Three graduates and no (official) celebrations for this Class of 2020 does not diminish their accomplishments. Congrats all around and especially on a […]
