On a sunny Saturday afternoon nearly two and a half weeks ago, I met Sallie and David at their DC apartment. While their friends began to arrive at their apartment building, they finished up their preparations. Their sweet pup, Ollie, looked sharp with a custom floral collar by Twinbrook Floral.  Sallie and David originally planned  […]

I have known Caitlin Clemons since 4th grade! Our houses were directly behind each other. She moved into the neighborhood and my sister and I immediately went to her house to meet the “new girl” of the neighborhood. We are one year apart but we became fast friends and spent a lot of time growing […]

Just a few weeks back I photographed baby Florence and her parents. It was one of my favorite morning sessions! Photographing a newborn is a little different than posing a couple. It takes some patience and understanding. The baby may need to be changed or eat in the middle of the session and that’s OK. […]

Nearly a month ago now I met with Sally, Mike, little Helen, and baby Wallace at their home in Clifton, VA. I love driving out to Clifton. Most of the homes are nestled behind long driveways with lots of trees. There are remnants of horse farms and still some horses around the area. It feels […]

I will admit. When we first began this quarantine season I was in a bit of denial. My busiest wedding season of 2020 was about to start in May. 6 weddings in a row! I had spent all of November, December, and January preparing a new brand with an updated website. Then I spent all […]

Last Sunday I met Carolin and JJ at Manassas Battlefield to photograph their engagement session. We actually did not originally plan to meet at Manassas! We had planned to meet at Great Falls Park, but due to the crazy unusual weather the park closed early! I had arrived an hour before our session so we […]

This year I have so many winter engagements to share! Between November and February of 2019 and early 2020 I have been busy photographing engagements and even a proposal! It is not the most typical time of year for me to constantly have my camera in hand! Engagement sessions are often the first time I […]
