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...
I adore being a DC Family Photographer. It truly is such a joy to be able to provide families with brief glimpses into a season of their lives. As a mother myself, I know all too well that this season is truly fleeting. There are days I look at my own children and think, “wow, […]
It can be overwhelming to figure out what to pack for a babymoon. After flying to four countries, roadtripping through Ireland, driving down the West coast, taking a train from Scotland to England, almost dying in Iceland, and driving/flying to numerous other states all while pregnant, I have had the opportunity to figure out what […]
I can assure you every parent has tremendous high’s and tremendous low’s (often in the same day!). Consider this your Friday pep talk. You CAN do this thing called motherhood, and you CAN do it gracefully and beautifully. That doesn’t mean it won’t be messy or you won’t have bad days. But you will emerge […]
It can be confusing and overwhelming knowing how to help a new mom. Seasoned mothers know exactly what was helpful to them in their postpartum period, but new mothers and friends of new moms may not know the best ways to support their friends. Despite the best of intentions, it is easy to overlook simple […]
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 […]
You are a great mother. The sole fact that you are reading this post shows you are. You care about your little ones and cherish the time you have together. The crying, whining, yelling, etc. do not define you in your role as a parent. By intentionally creating time to have your family photos taken […]
All mothers know there is a certain point where you see the transition from baby to toddler. My darling Rosalie, or “Rosie,” has finally made the transition, and my heart just melted. 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 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 […]
As a DC fine art photographer, I have desired to enrich the service I provide the families I photograph. I couldn’t quite place my finger on it, but it seemed there should be something more than simply sending an online gallery and calling it a day. The galleries are beautiful and purposeful, yet so often […]
Traveling with a baby is much more manageable than it appears. We are no longer sporting a toddler around, but we did a bit of traveling with Perry when he was under one year (including a trip to Italy and Ireland!). I found traveling with a baby much easier than anticipated. I think a lot […]
