  • 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.

Fine Art Friday | DC Art Photographer

Yes, it is the end of the month and that means it’s almost October-my favorite time of the year. Fall-cool weather, beautiful scenery, crazy busy with sessions…

I actually took a new photo this week instead of digging up from the archives:)

Be sure to follow the circle and check out our newest member of our fine art Friday group Cypress,TX Photographer Christie Lacy.

6 Weeks Old | Northern Virginia Baby Photographer

Unfortunately I was booked and couldn’t do this little guys ‘newborn’ session, but mom really wanted me to photograph him and even signed up for my watch me grow package. I wasn’t sure what to expect with a 6 almost 7 week old, but we were able to get him asleep and even do a little bit of posing and them proceeded with some more lifestyle type shots. He was such a great little guy and I can’t wait till his 4 month session (one bonus of him being older-I only have to wait 2 months now :))
