  • 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.

Fall & Holiday Mini Sessions Take 2 | Northern Virginia Children’s Photographer

Here are some of my favorite shots from one of my Northern Virginia mini sessions.

This first little girl was the ‘Judge’s Choice’ Winner from my Fall 2010 Cutest Kid contest. She was a joy to work with. So happy and cooperative (especially for an 18 month old!)

I live way out in California but am a internet follower of your stunningly always creatively beautifully shot photographs.
