How did everyone spend their mid December weekend?! This weekend officially marked that we have less than ten days until Christmas and technically less that ten shopping days too. Eep! I enjoyed a little time off and still managed to take some photos 🙂 Friday night was spent in true solopreneur-with-a-day-job fashion: cramming in some work! I ended up binge … Read More

I’m so grateful for the busy seasons – for obvious reasons, but even more so because they allow me to fully soak up and appreciate the not-so-busy seasons. I will say, I’m usually kind of grumpy during the holidays; they’re just not my favorite for various reasons. But this year I decided to totally be in the holiday spirit! After … Read More

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend!

The cool thing about being a photographer who takes photos of families is getting to see how the families grow and change over the years. This perspective is amplified when you have known the family longer than when you started taking their photos. Such is the case with the folks in today’s Potomac Overlook Regional Park family portraits.

Holiday Family Photos

I think it says a lot about a family when they are willing to invite you into their home, their neighborhood, to capture holiday family photos. It makes so much sense, right?

Crystal City Family Photos

Crystal City Family Photos

One thing I love about photography is how it brings people together – or back together, in some cases. I met Idelisse back in 2010 at trapeze class! Yes folks, I used to take trapeze lessons. But I digress. A mutual friend, Ricardo, introduced us when he invited Idelisse to one of our classes. So when she contacted me over … Read More
