  • 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.

I heart Face Challenge ‘Silhouette’ | Northern Virginia Children’s Photographer

This week’s challenge at I Heart Faces is Silhouette. I had a hard time picking an image this week, I Heart Silhouette photos and find them so much fun to. Here is one from this summer of my husband and son at the beach during sunset. I love how you can see the joy on both their faces even though you can’t ‘see’ their faces.

3 on Their Way | Northern Virginia Maternity Photographer

How awesome does mom look, can you believe she is 28 weeks pregnant with triplets!! Yes THREE!! Quite a surprise for mom when she found out. This is the sweetest family. I can not wait for their arrival (but keep cooking for at least 8 more weeks) I have done two twin sessions but have yet to have the privilege of photographing triplets!!
