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...

Let’s talk about this dreamy National Arboretum maternity session. It was the session of my dreams! Think Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen, Jane Eyre – this session portrayed classical feminine literature in the most beautiful setting. Lauren and Ben had their National Arboretum maternity session on a summer morning. Morning sessions at the National Arboretum […]

The cherry blossoms at the National Arboretum bloom every spring over the course of a few months. This stretches much longer than the one week peak bloom period of the Tidal Basin cherry blossoms! I had photographed a Tidal Basin cherry blossom session a few weeks before, so those cherry blossoms were long gone. If […]

The beach maternity photoshoot was photographed in October in Santa Rosa, Florida during the Fount Collective workshop. As a maternity photographer based out of Washington […]
This Northern VA mother and her beautiful family joined me in the garden studio for a maternity session this fall. Natalie is expecting her second child, and it was so meaningful capturing this time for her. Her family was overjoyed to be able to welcome this second child at last, so they wanted to capture […]
I absolutely adore the opportunity to photograph expecting mothers in the garden studio. These sessions are so sweet and sentimental since this period of waiting is so fleeting.
