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...
Traveling with a toddler is an adventure. Although we are prepared for our fair share of meltdowns, we also know that there is so much sweetness to be documented. I wrote an entire post on traveling with a baby when we traveled to Italy and Ireland with Perry when he was only 8 months old. […]
Being a Northern VA and DC family photographer, I know many mothers have their favorite mom hack. It may last through all of the early years or gradually change as our needs change. In the past, I have shared a few easy tips on how to get your child to smile for photos and how […]
Being a family photographer is the BEST job. After all, I get to play with little ones while documenting their relationship with their parents! Over the years, I have had many parents express worry about their children during sessions. They are worried their kids will be grumpy, they won’t listen, etc. As a mother to […]
I have the fondest memories of my babymoon in Ireland. Zach and I packed our bags when I was 20 weeks pregnant with Perry and traveled across Ireland, Scotland, and England over the course of two weeks.

Rosie’s first twelve months flew by because she was only born two months before COVID began. This time at home has blurred together. […]
As a newborn photographer here in the DMV, I help all my clients prepare for their session so they can approach and leave their session feeling comfortable and confident. The vast majority of the work associated with photo sessions is done before the session, not the session itself. As part of the Marie Elizabeth Photography […]
As a DC Newborn Photographer, I desire to connect with my clients so I can photograph their authentic narrative. It is a joy to listen to the families I photograph and hear their stories. One of my favorite aspects of newborn sessions is simply listening to mothers share their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experiences. I […]
I chose to be a DC Film Photographer over the course of the pandemic. It’s crazy to believe that the pandemic birthed such a valuable part of my business. However, I was able to experiment and practice photographing film over the course of an entire year! I knew I loved the look and film aesthetic, […]
Did you know that photographs boost self-esteem in children? When deciding to offer customized artwork for my clients this year, I learned that there was a body of research dedicated to this idea. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. When children see themselves in their homes, they feel validated and a sense […]
