Even when she really wasn’t feeling her best, she gave us the cutest moments…

Sometimes your session looks like this… The pouting and the crying, the mess and the imperfection…It’s all part of this parenthood gig isn’t it?

This is why I just adore at home newborn sessions.  Documenting all the things…Looking back, the chaos becomes art and the messy becomes pretty and we can’t believe how fast our babies have grown right before our eyes. They tell us this happens but we never really know until we are right there in the thick of it.

Mini Sessions | Northern VA Photographer

Because you asked…

You probably know I’m a full session fan, documenting all the things and all the connections, but I get it…Fall can be busy and the next thing you know it’s Thanksgiving and you never got that great photograph you wanted to use for your cards. For this I am opening two days for minis.  Email or message me if you would like to grab your spot.  Location TBA!!

You see, I have known Jane and her family for years and it’s mind blowing to me how fast time has gone by. I’d say we were both in our happy place during this magical session…the light, the colors the textures…Oh, and Jo Jo her horse was a champ!

Hayley | NOVA Lake Braddock Senior Photographer

We had the most perfect evening for Hayley’s Senior Portrait shoot!  For someone who prefers to be behind the camera…I think she really nailed it. Hayley is a Senior (10 of 57)-2collage5-2Hayley is a Senior (22 of 57)-2collage3-2collage4-2collage1-2Hayley is a Senior (56 of 57)-2

I hear Senior year is just a whirlwind and in the blink of an eye, college awaits.  Do all the things, dream all the dreams…go out into the world and show them just how amazing you really are.

A Night at Urban Posh

I was thrilled to capture these shots from the Sip and Shop event at Urban Posh Boutique in Historic Occoquan, VA.  Angie and Pam have created the most fabulous collection of clothing and accessories…

The styles are clean, classic and fashion forward and when you add in the coolest, most helpful staff,  it’s pretty clear Urban Posh will continue to be a shining success.  I can’t wait to go back and do some shopping for myself!!
