As a fine art maternity, newborn, and family photographer here in our nation's capital, DC, I carry enormous pride in preserving your family's legacy. Just as your memories will serve as styled art in your home, consider this journal a haven to display remembrances of our time together.
I want my family documented...
This DC Monuments family photo session on a lovely summer morning is STUNNING! Erin, her husband, and sweet baby boy met me at sunrise at the Lincoln Memorial. I did another Washington DC family session at the Lincoln Memorial here. Sessions in downtown DC take a lot of prep work. The goal is to make […]
This Alexandria VA newborn session in a garden was absolutely stunning! Lauren and Ben had the most beautiful National Arboretum maternity session that gave me all the Pride and Prejudice vibes. Naturally, their newborn session did not disappoint. Rosie was the sweetest, most darling baby. She gracefully slept for half the session and then we […]
These Colvin Run Mill family photos were photographed on an early summer morning. We were gifted with the most beautiful morning light! Beatrice wished for photos with her parents and brother’s family, so we enjoyed documenting this lovely family as a whole and in smaller groups. When you book your session with Marie Elizabeth Photography, […]
This Great Falls Newborn Session was incredibly sweet and cozy. I had photographed Courtney’s maternity session in studio, so it was on a summer day that I traveled to her Great Falls home for their newborn session. Baby Chloe was the most adorable baby! She had a full head of hair and just the sweetest […]
This floral maternity session at Brookside Gardens will make you swoon! If you’ve been following along, you’ll know that Brookside Gardens is one of my all-time favorite locations for best photoshoot locations in DC for elegant sessions. Brookside Gardens is always a beautiful location. Always. I have photographed there every time of year and am […]
This in-home newborn session in Washington, DC was so peaceful and sweet. Baby V had the cutest cheeks and disposition – she definitely seemed like a good snuggler! We photographed Julia’s in-home maternity session a couple months ago, so it was lovely coming full circle and having her newborn session there, too. They had a […]
I read an interesting post the other day from the Holistic Psychologist that captured my attention. The post read something like “celebrate ‘good enough’ parenting.” My first thought was not super embracing of this. I mean, shouldn’t we aim to be the best possible parent to our child? But as I continued to read the […]
This DC Newborn Session in Capital Hill was almost entirely photographed in the family’s hallway! Yes, just their hallway. Why? Their hallway had the best light. We really only need a small space for a session, as long as there is ample light. When I first arrive at your home, I will look around and […]
CeCe, our youngest child, is officially seven months old now. We have gone through A LOT of toys and baby gear amongst the three kids. We had no idea what we were doing with Perry, then we upgraded a lot of gear for Rosie, and now we have fine tuned what we really need and […]
How far out should I schedule my photo session? This is probably a question I get asked a lot. My husband Zach and I were just talking about this last night, and he suggested I write this post! How far out to schedule a photo session in his mind compared to mine were completely different, […]
