Nine Years…and a little about life.

The Krasna Family | Washington, DC Family Photographer

Between the flu and the weather, it took awhile before we could take their photos. And then the night before their session I checked the weather and saw it was predicting wind. I’ll take snow and rain before shooting in the wind. I text Vered to see if she wanted to keep the day as…

The Harper Family -Washington, DC Family Photographer

I have photographed this sweet family for several years now. We met at Diamond Tee Park near the Navy yard and walked along the pier. It was a really warm morning, so thankful we scheduled it early, so we started out with several portraits in front of the renovated airstream. We walked along the water,…

The Sumy Family |Washington, DC Family Photographer

I have had the honor of photographing this sweet family 3 times now. I love when families choose to book the “motherhood package.” This allows me to really get to know the parents and children at each session. I photographed Danielle’s maternity session, Emilia’s newborn photos and now she just turned one! It’s hard to…

Joyful Spring Family Session | Washington, DC Family Photographer

This session was so fun! We had the perfect weather for an evening spring family session. It just so happened to be Catholic University Graduation so the front of the Basilica was mobbed with excited graduates. But we opted to for the back/side of the grounds and practically had the place to ourselves. I love…

Karissa -DC Maternity Photographer

Maternity photos are so special to photograph. The expectation and excitement of new parents (especially first-time parents) is always a joy to capture. It’s lovely when parents opt to take maternity photos together for a last few documented moments just as a couple. I understand why some women wouldn’t choose too; you never know how…

Tips for Photographing Shy Children -Washington, DC Family Photographer

“Photos should let you take a glimpse into a soul.” Shy children just have a way to my heart. When they are bashful and can hardly make themselves look at me, it makes me want to help relax and move them into a comfortable zone that they can let you see into their soft and…

Welcoming Smith -Arlington, VA Newborn Photographer

It amazes me how you can go from a family of 3 one day and a family of 4 the next and quickly forget how life was before the new baby. The Strahorn family was very excited to welcome baby Smith into the world. He was pretty much perfection. With big eyes and so calm….

A resource list for woman struggling with infertility

This week is infertility awareness week. I love sharing my story, not because I’m proud of it or would have even written it this way, but I love how it shows the blessing of surrender, joy in sorrow, personal growth and the deep, deep love of Jesus. Here are a few resources I have found…

The Baker Family -Washington, DC Family Photographer

I love “growing” with my clients. I photographed this sweet family when Aiden was just a few months old. It’s so fun seeing them as a family of four and watching the two brothers’ bond as they interact. We met near Union Station at this special green space that comes alive in the springtime. The…
