When Oma and Opa come to visit from Germany πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ, you get all dressed up, schlepp to DC through rush hour traffic and road closures on a hot weekday evening, fight for a parking spot on Capitol Hill and arrive all relaxed and giddy for a fun family session. Right? – Yes, right! Check out […]

Throwback to this past spring with tulips 🌷and access to the Supreme Court in DC. Check out some of my favorite shots of this beautiful Arlington Senior on Capitol Hill. Always worth getting up and out early for a classic setting. Congratulations and best wishes to the beautiful Nora on her path ahead.

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 […]

I remember thinking how amazing it was that we have been able to just show up at the door of the Supreme Court of the United States to take professional photos. Over the years, I have had the privilege more times than I can count to meet clients at the top of the steps, for […]

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 […]

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. πŸπŸ‚ 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 […]

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 […]

What a contrast to last year! I met this wonderful family late last fall at our first family session in DC when it was so (uncharacteristically) chilly, we were literally wrapped in fuzzy fleeces and ended up at the tropical U.S. Botanic Garden to warm up. Fast forward to this weekend when the sun was […]
