You don't take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it.

Once upon a time – roughly three weeks ago – I took my automated horseless carriage to a beautiful land far, far away, very far away, almost a full thirty minutes, in fact… It was a dazzling place exemplifying both nature and manicured elegance, a scene so wondrous it might have been modeled from some old story-telling […]

Fairy Tale Family Portraits in Aldie, VA

This family portrait session at Glenview Mansion was a photographer’s dream. Lush foliage, perfect light and, of course, the basket. A baby’s cuteness is always magnified by putting them inside things – pretty bags, decorated cardboard boxes, litters of baby animals (if you really want to overload your senses) – but there’s nothing quite as […]

Springtime Family Portraits at Glenview Mansion, Rockville MD

June 20, 2017

This location in Rockville never disappoints, especially in the spring. The stone pathways and lush gardens always give family portraits at Glenview Mansion a touch of elegance – not that this beautiful and stylishly coordinated bunch needed any boosts in that department. It helps that this military family has, in my completely unbiased opinion, one of […]

These mother daughter portraits are some of my favorites that I’ve ever taken. Photography in Old Town Alexandria, while beautiful, can sometimes be a bit of effort with the crowds, but this pair made this session ultra enjoyable. From twirling in the grass, to the mother’s effortless style, to her daughter’s smiley personality – not to […]

Last January, I had the pleasure of doing some yoga photography at Yoga District DC with one of their instructors, Abigail. First of all, the studio was a photographer’s dream – huge windows, tons of natural sunlight, white curtains, wood and brick… cue dreamy sigh. The perfect place for photos – and, you know, yoga… […]

More beautiful family portraits at Nottoway Park in Vienna, VA! It looks so warm and lush in these portraits, you may have a hard time believing I took them in March! …Because I didn’t. They’re actually from August of last year. I need to blog more often. Procrastination aside, Nottoway Park’s woodsy, tree-lined paths provided the perfect […]

Summertime! Vienna Family Portraits at Nottoway Park

March 11, 2017

  Another beautiful January day at Nottoway Park…! You think I’m being sarcastic? Maybe a little bit. But really, it’s always so green here, it’s beautiful year-round, and having this wonderful, loving family to star in this family session definitely doesn’t hurt either. You can really feel the love in these. Not to mention… Have you […]

A Visit with Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary in Poolesville, MD Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary must be animal heaven, only better because these rescued animals actually get to experience it alive! These adorable ladies and gentleanimals are saved from slaughter farms and unlivable conditions. They’re then brought to the 400 acre Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary, where […]

Black Hill Regional Park Engagement Portraits with Vicki & Misha – Superhero Style I love these portraits for many (perhaps obvious) reasons. First of all, Black Hill Regional Park is stunning, and I love it even more in the snow. Enough that I’m even willing to drive through it to get there. This winter wonderland is […]

Whittemore House Wedding with Steve and Laura in Dupont Circle, DC I’d never been to The Whittemore House before Steve and Laura’s wedding. Located at Dupont Circle in Washington, DC, it’s actually quite unassuming on the outside. The interior, however, has that elegant historic feeling without being antiquated. Besides the pleasure of photographing their wedding, […]
