  • 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.

This little 1 1/2 year old guy was on the move. A little shy at first, but he quickly warmed up and was soon holding my hand and ready to play.
