Tiera | DC Prom Photographer

True life confession: I didn’t go to prom. That doesn’t stop me from loving everything about the pomp and circumstance of how it’s done these days. Tiera looked so amazing in this stunning blue gown – almost makes me wish…

RC | DC Headshot Photographer

Last year, I had the pleasure of photographing my friend who wrote a book. FULL STOP. My friend wrote a book. And it was amazing. I love these photos taken in northeast DC!

Tola + Ife: Washington, DC Maternity Session

Maternity is fast becoming one of the things I love to photograph the most. Something about the promise of what is to come, the profound happiness of my couples – it’s really just so much fun for me. Tola and Ife’s beautiful session was really lovely and sweet and I’m so happy to have gotten to photograph them.

The McKnight Sisters

How beautiful are these three sisters from Texas who I had the opportunity to photograph last fall in Washington, DC? I love when women celebrate themselves so getting to photograph three in one fell swoop is just the icing on the cake.

Francesca: Northern Virginia Portrait Session

Meet my friend of more than 20 (TWENTY!) years, Francesca. We’d talked and talked (and talked some more) about doing a session and we FINALLY get around to making it happen last fall in one of my favorite Northern Virginia parks. Funnily enough, it might be harder to photograph someone you really love because PRESSURE! Thankfully for me, this session was easy because my subject was easy. Oh, and this light? What I wouldn’t give to have that light every time I’m working.

Isaac: 1 Year-Old Portraits

Those dimples. Those curls. Those tiny little teeth. America – LET ME PHOTOGRAPH YOUR CHILDREN – I LOVE THEM!

Ellison B: Silver Spring, MD Newborn Session

I’ve been photographing Baby E since he was in utero and he is honestly just the cutest, sweetest baby you could imagine. Also, in case you were wondering, these photos do not do his new baby smell any justice :)

Robel + Erika: Northern VA Wedding

Can we talk just briefly about how beautiful it is when two cultures come together in such a rich and vibrant way? Robel + Erika’s day was really jam-packed from beginning to end but was so fun and so sweet. Heads up to all my brides – if the day allows, I’m definitely going to steal you away for some quiet portraits near the day’s end – like the ones you see featured later in this post. They are absolutely some of my very favorites!

Jason + Charlotte: Richmond, VA Engagement Session

This is a post where I tell you that my job is just as much about taking photos as it is about interacting with you, my clients. Both Jason and Charlotte would tell you that they’re not “picture taking people” which is why having an engagement session was so incredibly important! It’s important for you to see your photographer in action, to get to know their personality and vice-versa. And I promise you by the end of this session? Everyone was happy and smiling.
