I knew from the moment Abby reached out to me that this engagement session would be a match made in heaven. These two bring out the best in each other, as well as in others. What an epic session we had up on Capitol Hill, capturing some classic DC looks on one of those chilly […]

Finally sharing this spunky girl’s rehearsal photos at Temple Rodef Shalom in late March. Mazel Tov to Kate and the whole family! There was so much love from Kate’s doting grandparents and parents. And check out her sweet big brother Jack whose Bar Mitzvah I photographed pre-pandemic, about 30 years ago – just kidding – […]

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 […]

What a fun afternoon it was to work with this good-looking family last fall as Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna was showing off with gorgeous light and splendid fall colors. 🍁🍂 Mark Twain (supposedly) once said that golf was a good walk spoiled. I’d like to think of my photo sessions as a good walk […]

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 […]

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 […]

Did you know that Mars, Incorporated not only makes a surprising number of the goodies that tempt us in our grocery and convenience stores, such as Snickers, Twix, Skittles, Starburst, M&M’s, Altoids, Wrigley gum and – my childhood favorite – Bounty (thankfully for my waistline this one is somewhat hard to find, so I always […]

One of the bonuses of Ryan’s pandemic-delayed Bar Mitzvah was getting to document both the ceremony AND the party – pre-omicron, at the Westwood Country Club in Vienna – this past fall. It’s a photographer’s rare privilege to be clicking the shutter during the actual B’nai Mitzvah service, rather than the rehearsal a few days […]
