why, hello! first of all, can i just say thank you so very much for stopping by my page! i am so excited about my photographic adventures, and this page is a showcase of my work, my life, sweet smiles, and special moments. when i was a kid, i wanted to be a paleontologist. i graduated college with a degree in english literature, emphasis is poetry. flash forward to today, and i wear many different hats. but, most importantly, i am a wife to my very best friend and a momma to two of the most interesting tiny people i know. after a million army moves and for the past 5 years, my family has called northern virginia home. i am not so much a city girl, but i cannot sit still. so, my little family is constantly on the go, finding new places to explore with my camera in tow. when i became a mom, i fell in love with photography, a hobby i traded for corporate jobs post-college. i am a natural light photographer, and i have a knack for capturing unique moments with a little bit of whimsy and a whole lot of life. specifically, i specialize in on-location newborn, family, and engagement sessions with a combination of both a traditional and lifestyle approach. i love to capture perfect smiles, but prefer everyday sentiment and quirks. it’s no secret that the years go by so ridiculously fast. that’s where i come in. i’m here to help your family make these sweet memories last forever. i love that photos tell strong and profound stories about these fleeting moments, and i can’t wait to help you document yours! let’s chat!

Feeling super conflicted about enjoying the end of my time here while still paying attention to events and staying informed. Unplugging a bit tonite to hang with my crew and restore my brain. And to eat a lot.

AND to drink G&Ts from the can. Always classy.

I used to to think I would live forever. Those endless childhood days, they went on and on and on. I felt invincible, with a brain that could not compute an end. As an adult, and especially in recent years after a Lymphoma diagnosis, I've discovered that, well, it's just not so. As much as we'd like...

We are winding down our time here. Let’s schedule some sessions. In the meantime, here’s my boys storming Kenilworth Castle.

Time to start thinking of Fall. I know, it's weird to even type it out.

If you'd like to be on my list of Fall families, let me know! I'm thinking sessions may be a bit more limited, depending on COVID restrictions, so I'll have to do it first come, first serve!

Also, still have great August availability for backyard sessions!

Hello, friends. What a week! I’m taking a social media break this weekend, need to process, read, cuddle, hike, and think. And photograph things. It’s hard to pick up my camera right now, if I’m honest. It’s hard for anything to feel normal.

To my client families that are hurting, I’m sending you all the love and support I can from afar. We must keep using our voices, keep leading with love, keep teaching our kids how to do better, and keep supporting each other.

I’m seeing so many of you in July!!! Cannot wait to see familiar faces and capture the good stuff. If you need me, I’m here! Just shoot me a message!!!

You might think that all we do is TEA here. You might be right.

No, actually, that could not be less accurate. We fight, we get bored, we clean messes for the zillionth time, we yell, and we pine for home and friends. But, we love. And, we eat. So, all is not lost.

Check out these amazing ladies. These are some of my seniors. After the cancellation of, well, everything, I really started thinking about the 2020 Grads. Kindergarten grads, Middle School grads, College grads, High School grads.

So, here's the idea. PROJECT: Front Porch Graduation. (cue the music)

I am guessing some have graduation gowns that have gone unworn, prom dresses accumulating dust--still with tags on, and gear for new colleges or universities ready to be tried on and worn with pride.

I'd love to capture these special memories for your grad, all with the safety and comforts provided by the good ol' front porch, whatever that may look like.

I'm scheduling these in July, I'd love to tell you more. Each session will include 10-15 final images, and a portion of the session fees will be donated to Project Hope. Let's talk.

Things will be different, as we take safety precautions. But, they'll still be beautiful.

Talk to me. What has been your FAVORITE family activities
during quarantine? Something new? Continued traditions? Secret talents? Let's discuss.

I'll go first. We take long family walks, which is new, since someone is usually working or at a game/practice. Our charcuterie board game is strong, and it has become a family effort.

And, we listen to soooooo much music. We're working our way through the Rolling Stone Top 500 Songs of all time, think we are somewhere around 417. The kids get a good scoff out of the old music videos, and basically sit and comment about how horrible the music is and tell us how old we are. Henry does not get Mick Jagger's moves, wholly unimpressed. But, overall, good fun.

It's definitely a Monday here. Crankiness, allergies, printer issues. But, we're still smiling. Hang in there, friends.

My sweet friend is a nurse. Here’s her beautiful girl, born this time last year. Unfortunately, part of nursing right now leads to exposure, and my friend is getting a COVID test today after showing symptoms. Praying for her and for all our healthcare professionals. The mental fortitude. The strength. The love. You’re showing us all the good in humanity right now. Thank you, thank you.

Let’s tell your story.

When i was a kid, I had the absolute craziest imagination. True story. I wanted to be a paleontologist, a professional soccer player, and a poet. I graduated college with a degree in English Literature, emphasis is Poetry. Flash forward to today, and I still basically want to do everything. To see it all, to capture it all.

I am lucky. I am a wife to my very best friend and a momma to three of the most interesting tiny people I know. After army moves and for the past 10 years, my family has called Northern Virginia home. In 2009, I became a mom, and also, I fell in love with photography, a hobby I traded for corporate jobs post-college. I recently survived and conquered a battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. And, wow, everything changed. I truly see the world differently, and my work has been forever impacted. After cancer, I fell in love with it again. The stories I tell are richer, the colors brighter, the moments more impactful.

By nature, I am a natural light photographer, and I tell whimsical and beautiful stories through my lens, full of love and smiles, scowls, tears--wherever the story takes us, I’m there to tell it truly and completely. I specialize in on-location newborn and family sessions with a lifestyle approach.

I would love to get to know your family.
