Photo of two boys sitting on pumpkins at a farm in Northern Virginia

I apologize in advance for the incredible number of photos in this gallery!  If you made me choose between doing newborn photography and family photography, I'm sure I couldn't!  I just love them both so much!

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!)!!

Flight of the Bumblebee

Those of you who read my blog often know that I've become a bit of a broken record (yes, that's a pun) about how busy I've been.  So busy that, though I've been taking lots and lots of personal photos, I haven't spent any time actually going through them.  So I spent Friday night doing… Continue reading Flight of the Bumblebee

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

When You Say Nothing At All

My husband and I used to have monthly "State of the Union" talks to go over our finances and plan the month ahead.  That was before we had kids.  Now, he's lucky to get me for 10 minutes while I'm making dinner.  But we did make time on New Years Day to sit and talk… Continue reading When You Say Nothing At All
