I knew within five minutes of connecting with this couple that their wedding was going to be one of my favorites. After getting engaged, A & T started planning a big DC wedding, but quickly realized they didn't want to wait any longer than they had to to start their lives together, so a few months later they said heartfelt vows in front of an intimate gathering of family and loved ones at the beautiful home of the bride's sister. Dinner, dancing and lots of laughters followed. Congratulations, A & T, thank you for letting me capture your day!

Last fall, I traveled to Ireland with a fantastic fellow DC based photographer (Lissa Ryan) to attend a workshop and road-trip around the west cost taking photos. Before leaving that magical country, we snuck in one more shoot in Dublin with Sinead and Liam, friends of a friend of mine from college. In addition to being so easy to work with (those eyes!), they epitomized the Irish reputation for being friendly, kind and engaging.

On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, surrounded by a small gathering of dear friends and family, N + A said "I do" in an iconic DC elopement at the Jefferson Memorial.

It wasn't all a dream, this little one's newborn session was cooler than a polar bear's toenails - and so is his nursery! This stylish, music loving family was a favorite. PS, can I move in?
Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.

I had such a fun morning with this sweet family a few weeks back. Miss Sally has such a fun spirit and is so curious about the world around her, she definitely kept us all on our toes keeping up with her, and I wouldn't have had it any other way!
This gorgeous and fun couple is getting married this weekend and I am so excited to be there to capture this day in their story. When we met for their engagement session bright and early one morning at the Spanish Steps, I knew it was going to be one of the easiest - and most fun - sessions I've ever had, they put each other at such ease and have so much fun together (even at sunrise on one of the hottest weekends of the summer!). I am so honored they put their trust in me to photograph their wedding and wish them a lifetime of love and laughter.
It's hard to imagine a lovelier maternity session than this one. I've known this stunning momma-to-be since she was in middle school and our families spend time together whenever we get the chance, so I was beyond honored when her mom asked if I would capture some sweet moments with their growing family while we were all home for the 4th of July (yes, we are lucky enough to call Sanibel Island home!). It was such a treat to just spend a quiet morning with them before baby arrives - and I loved that she convinced her somewhat camera-shy parents to join us to celebrate another fun addition to one of the sweetest families I know.
