Happy Days

My favorite sessions are the third or fourth with the same family. It’s amazing to see a mother-to-be being a mother, seeing an infant become a toddler, and seeing an engaged couple become united at their wedding. As such, it was so great to work with these guys again for my third session with them in a year! By the way – how amazing…

Samara in the Morning – Georgetown Waterfront, Washington, D.C. Family Photographer

Sam just turned five. Five years old, off to kindergarden, and becoming a girl with ideas, loves, likes, dislikes and lots and lots of words. Jolina, her mom, said to me, “It so fun these days! But sometimes, we’re talking, and the endless questions just lead us down a rabbit hole. And before long, I’m thinking ‘how did we get here?’”  I love this…

Posed or Photojournalistic?

Yesterday a client and I were talking about style. Photographic styles have changed so much in the last few decades, that everyone seems to have a different expectation of what a successful picture will look like. Often, within the same family, one person will want a formal shot, others envision something candid. It’s such a personal thing. Some of my favorite photos from my…

Summertime Rain

Standing in the parking lot under a light rain, Jen and I conferred. The kids were in the car, anxious to get out. Her husband was of the mind that she got to make the decision on this one. Great light, a long distance we all traveled, and tons of rain. We decided to reschedule. As we found a date that worked for all…

She’s Here!

Many congratulations to my new clients! I’ll be working with them all year, tracking the development of their family through photographs.  Below, a few favs from their infant and maternity sessions.

Some Friday Cuteness

These little twins were such crack-ups at our session a few weeks back. The last time I saw them, they were in momma’s belly, waiting to be born. Such an amazing thing to see how big they are – already! Happy friday all, stay cool out there.      

Baby Number Three

Christine and her husband welcomed baby number three, and their first boy, to the family this summer. We did a session in Rose Park, in Georgetown, to capture the moment. Congratulations to you guys!

Baby Stella with the Butterflies

Grace and Garrett created the most amazing shared living/nursery space for baby Stella in their Foggy Bottom home. I love their use of simple textures and unexpected details, highlighted by a modern color palette. It was a beautiful, place, and family, to shoot Stella’s newborn session. 

Ask and You Shall Receive

Madeline’s mom is really excited to see her mini session pictures, so, an early mother’s day gift to you, Amanda!  Enjoy the many faces of Madeline…I love how you can see her sweet, silly and mischievous sides, from one minute to the next.

Mini Sessions in the New Place

We had some great mini sessions at our new home over the weekend! The crazy weather led to a whole number of rained out Cherry Blossom Mini Sessions, but we made up for it this weekend, with bubbles, sprinklers and good old fashioned greenery. I’m thrilled that we’re finally settled into our new place, and to have this opportunity to create the gardens and…
