One of the beautiful things about living and working around Washington, D.C. is having the opportunity to meet people from all around the world!

I’ve had the honor of being voted Arlington’s Best Event Photographer for 2017 by the readers of the Sun Gazette (woot woot!), and if there’s one thing I’ve learned about photographing events, it’s that my cheeks are going to hurt by the end of the day! It’s events like this Texas Jack’s party for Eva’s […]

I think I’ve said this before, and I may be biased (OK, I’m totally biased), but giving the gift of photography is such a sweet thing to do. You’re pretty much golden with whomever you’re giving the photography session to! Joe won some major brownie points, I’m sure, when he gave his wife, Natalie, Meadowlark […]

I love having the opportunity to capture multiple occasions in my clients’ lives! These Mamie Davis Park family photos are the perfect example of that! You will remember Kandis & Daniel from their National Mall engagement photos this spring. Well Kandis & Daniel also wanted to take family photos with Daniel’s daughter & Kandis’ soon-to-be […]

I recently had the honor of photographing one adorable tiny human, miss Caroline, for her first birthday portraits. Caroline is is one lucky lady! She was surrounded by family on her first birthday who were all there to celebrate her turning one whole year old! I met Caroline and her parents, Mary and Warner, at […]
