  • 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.

The ‘R’ Family | Falls Church Virginia Family Photographer

You may notice quite a difference in outfits here, the first set of photos was from our original session which was scheduled for the summer and it was a rainy cloudy day so it was too dark for some of the natural indoor light shots mom wanted, so I said I can come back for those shots the following week. Well the poor little guy ended up breaking his leg a few days after our session so we had to wait until the Fall for the cast to come off.

The kids were troopers for both sessions and did a great job…

Handsome little ‘J’ | Northern Virginia Baby Photographer

This little man is one of my ‘Baby planners’ and is going to be in next month for his 8 month old session, I can’t believe it. Here he is at 4 months, we had a rough start but got quite a few smiles from him and also one of my favorite father son shots to date. They don’t look anything alike do they:)I can’t wait to see how he has grown…
