If you’re in the early stages of planning an elopement, I encourage you to begin by selecting a […]

As a kid, I was always in awe of the magic of Santa (and the Easter bunny, tooth fairy, etc.). Even as an adult, I still enjoy anything otherworldly and magical (I read a lot of Leigh Bardugo, V.E. Schwab, and of course J.K. Rowling!) So, in our family, it gives me great joy to […]

For this sweet family’s session, in this unseasonable warm fall we’ve had, we got one of the few cold and super blustery days.

I first picked up a camera about 14 or 15 years ago. It was around the same time that I also joined a community of hobbyist photographers in Washington DC. We had so much fun as a group, roaming all over the nation’s capital, taking photos of the city, its people, and sharing our work […]
