✨ Just a few weeks away from welcoming their daughter after an incredible 9 months! 🛩️👶🏻 Capturing the enchantment of aviation deep in their roots, Donna decided it was only fitting to have her maternity portraits with the resounding roar of jet engines above 🌬️✈️ In the midst of a bustling afternoon bank of DCA departures, she was simply radiant in the golden sunlight, framed by the iconic DC skyline and active runways 🌇 It's been an amazing journey capturing these moments for Madonna and Rubin, and now we can't wait to meet their little aviator! 🎉

The joke goes that, since my heritage is 50% Irish, 50% German, I should really love beer. The reality is I’m not really a beer person (though I do enjoy Guinness and other stouts), but I LOVE the simple joy of Celtic music and traditions (my German half loves the welcoming of Oktoberfest, and of course ALL of the -wursts).

The Annapolis Irish Festival was a bit delayed from St. Patrick’s Day, but was the perfect way to kick off my birthday week and refresh after an April with zero breaks.

Today I’m happy to finally share with you a set of pictures four years in the making. In 2018 a commercial assignment took me on a whirlwind trip spanning over a week across three cities: Atlanta, Chicago, and San Fransisco.

Some of the assignment photos have been in my portfolio for years now, but only now are the personal photos I was able to capture between client shooting days ready to share with you.

Enjoy these highlights, and for the full, detailed story, along with more photos and video, visit my blog:

A year ago today Megan (AKA ) and I finally got together and shot this Victorian Trenchcoat set - one of many styled shoot ideas we've had bouncing around for years.

Glamour and portrait shoots with an equally artistically minded muse are when I feel most creative.

In a few days, Donna will graduate from George Mason University with a BS in Civil Engineering.

GMU’s Class of 2022 has the distinct honor to also celebrate graduation alongside Mason’s 50th anniversary.

Shooting these graduation portraits was a treat, getting to photograph familiar places, and see what new changes have come to be at my alma mater.

Recently after a graduation portrait session (coming soon).
I haven’t been back to my alma mater in at least 3 years, probably a few more; so much has changed, and so much is the same. The JC still smells the same, but I for one welcome our new delivery robot overlords.
It was actually very relaxing walking around campus in shorts and a polo with a backpack and camera just like old times - that part hasn’t changed; the difference is my backpack in college wasn’t leather from Tumi, and I didn’t walk around with TWO cameras on me between classes.

March 25th, 2022 marked the end of an era at Washington Dulles International Airport. Dennis Hazell, IAD’s Customer Service Manager, and source of smiles at Dulles for 25 years, recently moved in his same role to Ronald Reagan National Airport. On his last day at Dulles, Dennis’ impact at IAD was celebrated with farewell festivities.

Comment a city you visited when you were young and would like to return to!

As a kid in 2000 I visited Boston and saw the historic / touristy stuff; last Summer I explored it solo and uncovered this beautiful city’s charm as an adult.

This February I captured family portraits including two couples for whom I captured their wedding days. It's always wonderful to see my couples years later and capture new memories with them.

Today I want to share with you just a moment; this moment between Bay and Alex as they read a book together on his 1st birthday. It's small moments like this, lasting mere seconds, that I take pride in capturing to memorialize for a lifetime.

As a reminder:
Spring is just around the corner, and my April is already almost entirely booked up!
NOW is the time to book your Spring portraits, proposals, and engagement sessions!

Happy 2022! For my first post of the new year, I hope you enjoy our Victorian Trenchcoat photoshoot on the ruins of an industrial revolution era textile mill with Megan Woodville! Following our Steampunk corsetry shoot inside the mill, the photos we captured on this moody morning in a secluded corner housing the textile mill’s spillway felt as though we’d stepped back into the early 20th Century.

Be sure to follow Megan Woodville Photography (AKA on IG) for spooky and spectacular photography of storms, cemeteries, and astrophotography.

A few quick highlights from last week at 2022.

These bo***ir photos were part of one of several lighting workshops put on by StellaPro to showcase their new LED hybrid constant / strobe lights. I only attended part of this demonstration and didn’t stick around for the entirety, but am very excited to see studio strobes shrink in size and combine product lines to increase functionality as LEDs continue to advance in capabilities.

Stay tuned closely; the last three photoshoot postings before my end-of-year round-up are coming this week. And we’re rounding out the remainder of this year’s car photography to stay on recent theme.

Today, enjoy dropping into Leesburg Cars and Coffee from this past October. What a wonderful gathering; it reminded me of the joy cars and coffee gave me every week before a certain local C&C got too big, popular, and overcrowded.

Forza vibes? Forza vibes.

This 2022 Porsche Taycan in Carrara White Metallic with matching 21" Mission E Design Wheels is the hottest way to welcome the cool weather. Shot days before the last leaves fell, was fresh from the factory and newly installed tint and PPF.

Between the sunlight through bright Autumn leaves, and the cool dusk hues broken up by the Taycan’s futuristic rear lightbar, one can’t help but feel scenes from a video game have come to life. Here’s hoping next time I shoot in this location construction is wrapped up and will allow more angles and perspectives 🤞🏻

Get ready; whole lotta car content coming up this weekend!

Earlier this Summer, Adrenaline Lifestyles and RevNation hosted a pop-up meet at The Boro in Tyson’s Corner; a one-off cars and coffee in this newly built complex’s colorful parking lot. I’m admittedly not familiar with the two host groups, but the event drew a healthy mix of import tuners and exotics.

Mahsa and Peyman’s Spring Bridal Session!

09/11/2021

For the past several years I’ve shared my photo of the World Trade Center as I captured it in September of 2000 compared to revisiting the spot in 2018 I originally shot it at 12 years old. Today, on the 20th anniversary of that fateful day, I feel it is important to reshare the images I captured at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York in 2015. My photographs of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum don’t even begin to capture the emotion and empathy I feel for the countless people I have met over the years here in DC, a city where everyone has their own 9/11 story, and many loved ones lost on this day two decades ago. There has been much healing in the 20 years since the attacks on September 11th, but the ripples of that day still affect everyone in some way even to this day. On this especially charged 9/11 anniversary, I wish everyone peace.

On my recent trip to New York , I visited The National September 11th Memorial & Museum.  Each previous time I've been to New York I've passed through the World Trade Center, seeing the progress on One World Trade Center; this was my first time there in several years.  This

At the beginning of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, I documented the impacts at several locations in early 2020. This past Spring, 2021, I returned to those same spots to document how things have changed in a year’s time.
