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 […]

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 […]

I met Victoria during her High School time at the Howard Gardner School in Alexandria, VA, where I periodically take portraits of the students (when they’re not in quarantine). A couple of weeks ago her mother contacted me to ask whether I would be available to take some grad photos of her on their farm, […]

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 […]

With a college graduate of my own I’ve had first hand insight into the sense of loss for the class of 2020, missing out on the traditions and rituals of senior spring, last concerts or sports events, the senior nights, the banquets and parties, the handshakes and hugs, the walk across the stage. And then […]

Classic DC for classy girls, classes 2016-2020. Going through the various galleries of these past senior girls’ sessions gave me goosebumps. Such beautiful people, inside and out, so much talent, promise and bright futures. I thoroughly enjoy my senior session outings with these young adults, chatting about their High School experiences, the ups and downs […]
