The Vuong Family -Yards Park, DC

Yard’s Park is fast becoming a favorite DC family location. It has a water view, pretty trees with benches in front and even a path lined with roses! This is the second time I photographed the Vuong Family. Their children are incredibly sweet, smile on command-which is super rare, and all around fun. Enjoy their…

The Bedi Family -An Extended Fall Family Session in Washington, DC

Sarah contacted me and said her family was going to all be in DC for a wedding and checked if we could schedule an extended family session with all of them. I love the dynamics an extended family offers. We broke into several groupings: families, siblings, and of course Grandparents with their Grandchildren. It was…

The Mandell Family- U.S. Botanical Gardens

This family is so genuine. Their little girl was the sweetest and they had such a comfortable family bond. I try to always take a few images of just Mom and Dad together. When I asked them to get close they smiled and said they hadn’t had photos taken of just the two of them…

How to Capture Christmas Tree Lights

So many of you have asked how to take self-portraits with your camera. Since today was the first snow day in DC I thought it was the perfect time to share. It’s a bit tricky but I have practiced a lot this past year and it does get easier. I thought I would share my…

Girl’s Weekend Away in Fredrick

It’s hard to fully describe this weekend. I met up with two of my good friends and had a girl’s night. Heidi lives in Pittsburgh and Rachel lives in Virginia so it’s rare when we three can be in the same place at the same time. We rented a darling carriage house and caught up…

The Kanewske Family -U.S. Capitol

You probably recognize this little family from past sessions. I’ve been photographing them since Ethan’s newborn session. These are the kind of clients that turn into dear friends. The other day we spent about 30 minutes together talking and munching fresh cookies during a walk through the neighborhood. The children did so well during their…

Christmas Cards -My Favorite Photo Labs

I love the tradition of handing out cards. If I could pick one holiday tradition I think it would be on the top of my list. It connects friends who haven’t seen each other in some time, it delights Grandparents, and brings families a little closer. This time of year we are all looking for…

A Fall Family Session in a Field at Sunset

There’s something magical about the world in the fall, especially at sunset when the light turns golden and amber. This little family was up for anything, even standing in weeds for the perfect spot as the light filtered in from behind. That’s the thing about ideal clients, they fully trust you. They are completely confident…

A Sibling Session at the Library of Congress

Sibling relationships are so fun to capture and extra sweet when they are small. These two adore each other but still have that “brother/sister” rivalry going too. My friend, Bethany, came to visit me for the day so of course I had to snap a few portraits of her cute kiddos. I love capturing expressions…

Fall Favorites

My family has never celebrated Halloween, but we do love fall! Here are just a few fall staples I love to have each year. Booties  I love a comfortable pair of ankle boots-preferably if they are a camel brown. This pair I bought thrifted and I can wear them with almost any outfit. 2.  A…
