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 choose to incorporate family photography on film for my sessions because I adore film photography for many reasons. Film is quite different than digital photography, and these differences are part of why I enjoy it. I also love photographing my own family on film. I will often carry around my 35mm camera to document […]
DC Film Photographers are frequently asked many questions about film, so I wanted to compile the most common questions and their responses in one place for you! Film is a medium that some photographers choose to photograph with over or alongside digital. I would estimate that the vast majority of photographers photograph using digital alone […]
I adore being a film photographer here in the Northern VA and DC area, so I documented our summer on film. Film is an integral part of my client experience, but I also photograph my own family on film. I actually fell in love with film when COVID first hit. I wrote a whole post […]
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.

This Brookside Gardens family photo session was simply lovely. I enjoy photographing all around the DC area. I have had the opportunity to explore so many lovely locations over the years. This winter family session was photographed in Brookside Gardens in Montgomery County, one of my favorite locations to photograph during the spring. The gardens […]
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 […]
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 […]
It is such a joy to document this special time for families like in this Meridian Hill Park maternity session in DC. Samantha and her family moved into the DC area this past spring. We ventured out to Meridian Hill Park in DC on a summer morning. I almost always photograph in the early morning […]
