I love vibrant color, happy energy, genuine expressions, and a great story. Over the last 18 years, I have photographed some truly fun and fascinating families. I'd love to be able to tell your story, too. I am based in Northern Virginia, but I've photographed families all over the country. Years of experience have taught me how to help people feel comfortable and confident in front of a camera. I particularly love working with children and documenting the quiet comfort and loud drama of family life. I have been interviewed and published by Popular Photography as an expert in family candids. My many other publications include Newsweek, Photo District News, and Brides. I have a masters degree in Instructional Technology, with an emphasis in Photography Education, and I teach novice photographers this wonderful craft. My own family includes my husband, two kids, a dog, and lots of silliness. When I'm not working, I'm usually hiking, paddleboarding, or singing karaoke with insufficient talent. If you'd like to learn more about me and my services, I'd love to learn about you and your family.
