The night before our session, I was frantically texting Nora to let her know that our original location, Burke Lake Park, would not be available. It just so happened that Burke Lake was hosting a huge cross country race the morning of our session, and their website warned that the park would be extremely busy […]

I had so much fun shooting at Brookside Gardens again, this time with the beautiful Fender family! We met up just a few days after the official first day of spring and got to see some early spring blooms, including camellias and a whole sea of trumpet daffodils. It was wonderful to see the colors […]

If you look closely, you can even see patches of thawing ice in the background. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thankfully the sun warmed up […]

I loved absolutely everything about this session with the Yamada family! After a pretty crazy February filled with sleet, snow, and icy rain, we were blessed with some warmer days last week, perfect for frolicking through the fields of Manassas Battlefield Park. I will definitely be oversharing images in this blog post, but I won’t […]

As a family photographer, I love being able to photograph families as they grow and change through the years. Last fall, I had the distinct pleasure of doing a mother-son session for Aurora and Tristan in Old Town Alexandria (check out their session here). So when Aurora reached out asking if I could take their […]

I’m so excited to share this adorable session with the Lee Family, taken at the picturesque River Farm in Alexandria! When Rachel reached out looking for updated photos of her beautiful little family, I knew that River Farm would be perfect for their session. I love River Farm’s mix of brick buildings, manicured lawns, lush […]

Gorgeous fall colors. Glowy sunshine. Love, warmth, and smiles all around. Sometimes everything clicks into place for a portrait session, and this beautiful family session was definitely one of those times! I’ve known Angelina since our Cornell days, and she has always been true to her name: generous, kind, gentle, funny, and a true angel. […]
