I love photography and capturing wonderful images for families to enjoy for a lifetime. I also love the outdoors (when I'm not working you will find me hiking, snowboarding, enjoying a picnic at one of Virginia's wonderful wineries, etc). Because of this I specialize in capturing portraits in outdoor settings to take advantage of natural light and use our beautiful area as a backdrop for your photos. The Washington DC metropolitan area has a variety of venues to make your portrait session fun and unique. Local parks, national monuments, historical sites, and wooded areas all provide great venues for portraits and these sessions provide a relaxed environment to capture candid photos as well as great "posed" shots while allowing you to enjoy some time together outside.
I also recognize the need for indoor sessions. For this reason I have a small studio in my home to accommodate special needs such as newborn portraits, first birthday smash cakes, formal head shots, or simply when the weather is too cold or rainy for outdoor portraits. These sessions can use anything from a very simple backdrop to more elaborate props for special occasions like holidays and birthdays.
Whatever your photography needs, please contact me to schedule the perfect session.
