One thing I’m learning this season is that cherry blossoms will brighten up even the dreariest of days! Well, cherry blossoms and brilliant, joyful clients will do that too! The gorgeous kwanzan cherry blossoms and Mary’s beautiful smile brightened up a cloudy Sunday afternoon during her Washington D.C. graduation photos session earlier this month. All […]

Over the past year I have had the pleasure of meeting a lot of wedding industry professionals and today I’m excited to introduce you to one of my favorites as I share her Loudoun County branding session photos!  I met Angelica last year at a Tuesdays Together D.C. meeting and we just clicked! We scheduled […]

It’s days like this past Saturday and couples like Anna and Jesse that make me love winter photo sessions more than I ever thought I would (I’m not fan of the cold y’all, so that’s saying something!). I’m super excited to share with you Anna and Jesse’s Poplar Springs Manor maternity photos in Warrenton, Virginia! […]

In looking over these images, I’m reminded of how lucky I am to have this job I love so much! It helps me meet people from all over the world, including folks from different parts of our own country, like Kristen and Austin here.

What’s the best way to celebrate your engagement? With engagement photos, of course! Especially when you do Brawner Farm engagement photos, as Laura and JB found out this past Friday. Brawner Farm at the Manassas Battlefields is absolutely stunning at magic hour! I was in photography heaven with these two college sweethearts as we made […]

  I learn this lesson more and more as time passes: if someone tells me they aren’t great at having their photo taken, the opposite tends to be true! Such was the case with Cecilia and Steven’s C&O Canal engagement photos this past weekend in Potomac, Maryland. Cecilia and Steven were such naturals in front […]

  When you propose to your girlfriend in an an amazing, majestic location such as Yosemite (!!!), you could probably rest on those brownie points for months – at least until your wedding! But not George! George wasn’t settling for Yosemite proposal brownie points – he went the extra mile and did Belle Haven Park […]

One of the best ways I can serve my clients is acting as a consultant. I love to help by shining a light on details people may never think of! I’ve had lots of behind-the-scenes opportunities to observe how much a couple is enjoying their wedding day, and if they’re not, how much of that […]

I’ve been wanting to photograph seniors for […]
