Elena’s Washington DC Jefferson Memorial Maternity Session

January 16th, 2014

I always jump at the opportunity to head to some of my favorite spots in DC and the Jefferson Memorial is definitely one of them.  Elena wanted a classic DC backdrop to document the anticipation of their first baby.  The Jefferson Memorial’s giant columns and back-drop of the Tidal Basin provided the perfect setting for this maternity session.

Simple Beauty: Lindsay’s Maternity Studio Session

May 7th, 2013

“Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity.” ~ Plato

Lindsay embodies style and grace and for this simple maternity session she especially shined.  Her and her high school sweetheart were expecting their first daughter and we captured some of that grace and beauty to share for when she is older.  Congratulations Lindsay.
You are beautiful and I can’t wait to see your family grow!




Tanya’s Georgetown Maternity Session

April 17th, 2013

I really love photographing growing families.  Especially when they are calling me to photograph number two.  You might remember this sweet family from before.  Gorgeous Tanya and sweet little Joshua and of course Daddy too.  I joined them in their new house in Georgetown for a maternity session before #2’s arrival. Congratulations Tanya and family.

I am so excited today to see Nikki and Joe’s “Jump In” maternity shoot featured on Grey Likes Baby.  If you haven’t been to Grey Likes Baby go take a look.

It is absolutely one of my favorite sites for design, photography and mommy/baby inspiration.  I am so honored to see my work featured there.

Thank you Nikki and Joe again for this awesome session.

Gorgeous light.  A gorgeous momma.  A gorgeous setting.

She couldn’t possibly be more radiant.

You are a rockstar Nikki.  Thanks for sharing in your adventure to become the awesome momma you are.



Jump In

July 6th, 2012

I said jump in…and they did.  But since this shoot, they have jumped in on their own to a whole new world of fun…parenthood.  Their sweet baby arrived early (as you probably saw from this post on Father’s Day), but this session was too fun not to share.  I’ll be sure to share Nikki’s individual maternity photo session on Monday.  Until then…beat the heat this weekend!



A Natural Momma

July 2nd, 2012

Walking into homes with new babies every week…you get to see the start of new life… both the baby’s and the new momma’s.  It’s amazing how one second it can just be you…and then suddenly…you have this little life that depends on you…for everylittle…thing.

It would be a lie to say it comes naturally for every momma, but for this one it did.

Congratulations are your new little love and welcome to the most important role of your life:)



Brothers on the way…

June 27th, 2012

Yesterday I got an email from this gorgeous momma that my favorite little man’s brothers were here!  Yes…brothers…twins!!!!…:)  I can not WAIT to meet them and see her and her sweet boys all together!




Stopping Traffic

June 21st, 2012

If it’s not evident already… Rachel knows how to work the camera.  Photographers often make the best models because they have a greater understanding of what looks good “in camera”.  (Note: I do not claim to be someone who can do this…at all..I like being behind the camera:)

These images were taken about 7am right at Constitution and 18th street. If you know DC…you know that it is the start of rush hour so we had to act quickly. When I would say something to Rachel on her posing…she knew exactly what I was looking for.  She trusted my vision and went for it.  The resulting images did not disappoint.  She looks beautiful…powerful and strong…everything that she undoubtedly is.

Thank you Rachel for trusting my vision for this shoot and for allowing me into this time in your life.

You rocked it girl!



A Downtown Morning

June 20th, 2012

Rachel is a photographer and a super talented salsa dancer.  She is passionate…creative…and in love.

Her and Louie currently live in San Diego, CA so I was super honored when she called me a few months ago to plan out a session here in DC.  It made it even better when I found out she was EXPECTING.  I am always so honored when fellow photographers ask me to capture images for them and give me the freedom to be creative…especially during SUCH an important time in their lives.

This session was taken in the wee hours of the morning in DC.  Unfortunately, the crystal clear forecast was not so crystal clear, but the empty monuments were the intimate setting we were looking for.

I loved how they were so natural just loving on each other. But what I really loved most was their openness and their genuine joy.

Make sure to stay tuned for second post of these amazing people tomorrow.
