Do you have visions of a classic, vibrant and personal hallway display of family photographs, but are stuck on what to order from your photo sessions? Just a reminder that I offer in-person print consultations, free of charge, to all clients. It’s a great way to view items not offered for sale within your online gallery, such as the Heritage prints, albums, storyboards, gallery clusters, and more.
Plus, you’ll get to view your images without a watermark on a big screen, do side-by-side comparisons, and talk with me about what makes a great heirloom piece.
I hope to see you soon!

I’ve been working with John and Beth’s family now for three years. When Margaret was a tiny baby, they called me for a newborn session.
We then did a session when she was a bit older, which you can read about here. The very next year, Beth emails and says: “John and I recently welcomed a new baby sister for Margaret, Lauren Avery”. Beth has these family-heirloom blankets for each of the girls, woven with different colored yarn, so we wrapped each girl into them for their newborn sessions.
And lo and behold! The very next year, Beth got back in touch, saying that they welcomed the third baby into their family, little Catherine. They moved into a lovely new home, but away from their first DC house, in Capitol Hill. So we did their family session this year in front of the Capitol building.

In this age of digital technology, with every tool available to us, I would hazard to say that even today any photographer would be very proud of capturing the image of them leaving the church. And to anyone who thinks that photojournalism is a new approach to wedding photography, the image on the left is the only posed image in the entire book. Given that he was probably shooting medium format, there are likely fewer than 100 frames from their wedding. For contrast, I shot over 1,000 at Saturday’s wedding of Trish and Roberto. And I would still kill for that image on the right.

Emily and Steve were such a great couple to shoot with. Relaxed, healthy and totally in love, they arrived for their engagement session just a few weeks out from their wedding day. They really prioritized intimacy for their wedding, and stuck with a very tight 30-person guest list. I’d love to hear if anyone else has been able to make that happen?! Anyone who has planned a wedding knows how hard sticking to a really small guest list can be (myself included).
Many congratulations to you both!

Okay, I have too many selects here to write a ton. Except to say that Trish and Roberto were the loveliest, calmest bride and groom at their gorgeous wedding yesterday. The love and support that they very clearly share with each other was so evident in their families and bridal party as well. What a blessing to be a part of their (seriously perfect) day. See you guys soon, I hope! Have a blast in Mexico.
