The hurricane couldn't stop us this weekend! Fun time doing family photography at Frying Pan Farm with these little rascals. :-)


Location Spotlight | Colvin Run Mill in Great Falls Virginia

I'm super excited to add a new location to the fall 2015 mini-schedule. It is a gem of a location called Colvin Run Mill and is in Great Falls Virginia. Not only is there a really cool old mill there, but there is also a little creek, an old mansion, and some great natural backgrounds.

Below are some images from a special mommy and me shoot at Colvin Run Mill. 

Summer Roundup

Summer 2015 is such a blur! I'm looking forward to some crisp fall days but will definitely miss those long summer nights. Here are some photos from this summer's sessions.


Glen Echo Park First Birthday Party | Washington D.C. Family Photographer

We celebrated Eleanor's First Birthday yesterday with a small party at Glen Echo Park yesterday. It was a breakfast theme and my favorite part was the pancake cake! Eleanor really loved it (despite her usual dirty looks in the pictures) and we had such a great time sharing the morning with all of our friends.


Happy Independance Day | Washington D.C. Family Photographer

I had such an amazing time with this family a few weekends ago. We arrived at the Lincoln Memorial for their Washington. D.C. family photo shoot early in the morning and got to see the sunrise over the reflecting pool.

Living in the suburbs, I often forget what a special place we have the opportunity to live and work in.

As we celebrate this weekend, I saw this quote that I think really resonates:
"The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence"

Happy Independence Day everyone!!!!
