Respecting Toddlers During a Photo Session

I’m not going to lie, it can be hard. It can be hard as parents and photographer to want the “perfect” photo so badly that we brush aside the toddlers during a family or newborn session. They may be small, but they matter so much even if it is during a newborn session because they…

The Wise Family -Washington, DC

When Carolyn reached out to me about photographing her family I knew right away that we would have a great time together. She was so warm and friendly in our correspondence, it made me excited to capture her family. Claire was adorable as she twirled in front of the Library of Congress, pretending to be…

The McKinney Family -U.S. Capitol, DC

This sweet family came all the way from Waco, Texas! Honestly, ever since Magnolia Market opened; I have wanted to visit Waco. They have family who still live in DC and wanted photos taken while they were in town. Because they both used to live and work on the Hill, they chose the Capitol area…

The Martin Family -Washington DC Family Photographer

It’s so fun photographing family but to be honest they are usually my hardest clients. 🙂 The children know me and are so comfortable, you never know what to expect. I always use the first 10 minutes of ever session when the children are shy to capture the portraits and family poses. Then at the…

Washington DC Family Photographer -A Cozy At-home Session

I photographed this sweet family on Christmas Eve. I prefer to photograph outside but it was so windy and cold that day I didn’t mind at all. They were the most relaxed parents and truly loved their little boy to the fullest. The mater bedroom had wonderful natural light and so we started there with…

The Weber Family -Washington DC Photographer

One of my all-time favorite things about photographing in the city is all the different locations DC has to offer. We have urban streets, cityscapes, botanical gardens and and quiet neighborhoods. It was a cold, rainy day for the Weber family so we spent most of their session in-doors at the Botanical Gardens and then…

The Schichor family -DC Family Photographer

This little family was so fun! They chose to photograph at a local park near their house. We started out with portraits under the trees bright with fall foliage. Their girls are just the cutest and had so much personality. We ended up playing on the swings, slides and monkey bars. Enjoy their playful and…

The Duncan Family -Washington DC Family Photographer

There are so many unpredictable things when starting a family photo session-tired children you can give a snack or get out a toy, rain you can go to a sheltered or indoor location- but my worst fear as a photographer is wind. Anna and Dee’s session was SO windy and you could never tell on…

One of the biggest struggles or stresses to any photo session is wardrobe. I have been telling my clients for years what to wear for a session but when it comes time for me to me to pick out our clothes, I start to over think the situation-like we all do! Here are a few…
