What You Waiting For? | National Arboretum Family Photography

I've been reading a lot of articles lately about slowing down and enjoying life, how people are complaining too much about being "super busy" and "crazy busy."  We're losing focus and losing touch.  We're trying to do everything and for what purpose? I totally agree with those articles, and the idea of "slowing down" sounds… Continue reading What You Waiting For? | National Arboretum Family Photography

Saturday in the Park | Arlington, VA Family Photographer

There's no better compliment than having a past client ask me to take their family photos again!   So excited to work with the Gates family again!  Beautiful, happy children and super fun parents to go with them!  We had a blast (again!)!! I took this photo about three minutes into the session.  I turned… Continue reading Saturday in the Park | Arlington, VA Family Photographer

I love to laugh

The most recent issue of Arlington Magazine features some photos that I took of the Holroyd family for the article "Parents Gone Wild," which is about parents who lose control at their children's sporting events.  When I put out a call for models, I was thrilled that Kat Holroyd offered up her children (and allowed… Continue reading I love to laugh

When I See You Smile

Meet Gwyn!  She's only one year old, but this girl has a lotta spark!  We met on, literally, the coldest day of March, but she could have cared less. She totally worked the camera and soaked up all of the attention.  Loved her! I love how she threw up her arms right when the goose did! I… Continue reading When I See You Smile

I know it's a month past Christmas, but I thought I'd go ahead and share that one of my own personal holiday traditions is that I always sit down by myself every year and watch White Christmas while I wrap gifts (promptly followed by Holiday Inn because I have so many gifts to wrap... and I usually… Continue reading Sisters

Sleep in Heavenly Peace

For me, Christmas is about love, giving, life and birth.  So I thought it would be apropos to share with you these photos of Miss Ella Kennard, a little blessing from heaven that I met when she was a week and a half old.  She was born the day before Thanksgiving, and was the easiest… Continue reading Sleep in Heavenly Peace

This is Halloween
