  • Welcome to my blogsite!

    A website and blog all in one, making it easier for you, as a client, to see everything in one place.

    I am a wife to a wonderful husband & mom to two incredible children-Leah & Jake. As you will see my style is all about capturing the real child with natural smiles. I focus on showcasing their true personality & expressions, not having a child sit still and say 'cheese'. I will laugh and play games with your child while striving to have our sessions stress free and fun for all.

    I've been in business for over 6 years.

    Sessions are on location or at your home using the available natural light. I am located in Northern Virginia & book sessions for the entire DC metro area.

Meet Baby ‘R’ | Northern VA Newborn Photographer

There is no greater compliment then when a previous client comes back to you for another newborn session when they have a new baby. Plus I am so excited because this couple signed up for my baby plan session again too.

I am please to introduce baby ‘R’ She was a dream and big sister ‘A’ is just so adorable as well…I love the colors we used for the session too.

Another girl on her way | Northern Virginia Maternity Photographer

Ahh a beautiful maternity session from one of my previous baby planners (I’m sure you will recognize this beautiful family) and now I get to see them at least 3 more times when I photograph their new daughter. This session was quite an adventure, I moved it up an hour because thunderstorms were expected and sure enough we had about 10 minutes before they started. We couldn’t postpone the session any longer mom was too close to delivery! There was a quick break and we made a break for a nearby gazebo and even though it was pouring rain in the background I LOVE these images, the lighting was gorgeous…

And since I am so behind in my posting my sessions, the next post you can meet baby ‘R’

Sweet little ‘C’ | Easton, MD newborn photographer

I’ve been photographing these beautiful kids (and family) for the past 3 1/2 years! I photographed this little guy’s big brother when he was a newborn too and was so happy that mom asked me to come back for her 2nd son’s newborn photos.

He is just as adorable:)Thanks again mom and I look forward to our next session!

Here is a link to see baby brother’s newborn photos:

Baby on the way | Northern Virginia Maternity Photographer

This sweet family was about to move to NC, but wanted family photos in Old Town since they have lived here the last few years before they left. Mom also happened to be 8 months pregnant, though we were not focusing on her pregnancy mom had such a cute baby bump I wanted a few solo shots of just her. This also happened to be one of those freak days in April when it was about 40 degrees and windy outside. So we were rushing the session and wearing jackets between shots.
