  • 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.

Mother’s Who Rock Contest | Northern Virginia Children’s Photographer

In honor of Mother’s Day next month I asked all my fans on Facebook to email stories of single mom’s they knew who were awesome moms!

I decided to only ask for single moms for two reasons:

My father passed away when I was 11 and my mom was a single mom to my sister and I until she got remarried. She was and continues to be the best mother I know. Totally unselfish and giving in every single way.

Also we all know how hard of a job being a mother is and now that I am a mother I can’t image how much harder it is without the support of a spouse. They can’t just say honey I’m tired this morning can you get up with the kids and give them breakfast? I need to go out and do some shopping can you stay home with the kids right now. My heart and appreciation goes out to all the single moms out there!

I want to thank everyone for taking the time to send in your friends/families/colleagues stories. EVERYONE sounds like an awesome mom. We ended up with 20 nominees. After reading these there is no way I could decide and I wish I had the time for everyone to have a session.

I decided If you submitted a story I put YOUR name into a hat and I couldn’t just pick one, I decided to draw TWO names.

The complimentary session & 10 digital files & 10 5×7 prints (over a $1000 value) go to :

Annie Petrichenko’s nominee & Debbi Vail’s nominee
