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 know I photograph babies A LOT (and who can blame me), but I simply feel in love with this family session with older children. When mom Tamara reached out to me indicating her desire for meaningful portraits with her two older boys, I knew it was going to be so special. We met at […]
These Glenview Mansion photos with the Stumpp family are simply darling. I have photographed this family five times – the greatest honor and joy of this job is seeing your family grow! We photographed their first session when their oldest daughter was still toddling around. She is now a big sister, and how cute they […]
As a Georgetown family photographer, I absolutely adore the opportunity to photograph at Tudor Place in DC. It is a lovely Federal-style manor and gardens set on five acres in the middle of Georgetown. Can you believe it is set on five acres in the middle of DC? It is such a lovely respite from […]
I met Victoria and her family at Brookside Gardens for this Montgomery County family session in early fall. I always photograph family sessions in the early morning for the light, the peaceful scene, and because little ones are always in a good mood! Brookside Gardens couldn’t have been more beautiful on this September morning. We […]
The 2022 Holiday Event, Christmas mini sessions at Butler’s Orchard, was such a joyful day! I was able to see some families I had photographed earlier in the year again and meet some new faces. These Christmas mini sessions were held on a chilly November morning, but all the families who came were so wonderful […]
I hosted Christmas tree farm mini sessions this past weekend as part of The 2022 Holiday Event, and boy, were they magical! Before last weekend, I dragged my three little ones and husband Zach to Butler’s Orchard to take some promo photos for The Holiday Event. Butler’s Orchard is an amazing family-owned farm that offers […]
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 […]
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, […]
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, […]
Laura reached out to me to photograph their DAR Constitution Hall family session during their DC stay this summer. Laura and her family live in San Francisco and were spending the summer in the city. This was the first session I photographed at DAR Constitution Hall, and I LOVED it! DAR Constitution Hall had that […]
