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….

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…

I  just love growing with a family and being able to capture milestones, like each little addition to the family. We started with Adelie’s NICU stay, watching her become a big sister to Lucas, and now Isaiah’s arrival making them a family of five!

The Schnell Family |Washington, DC Family Photographer

Angelyn -An Infertility Journey

Not all stories are linear. Few begin in the same place, even fewer end in precisely the same way, and none follow exactly the same path.

Branches hang low over the water, heavy with blossoms. The sidewalks are colored pink, and even local coffee shops and restaurants join in the festivities…
