  • Portraits: Catherine

  • Meet Catherine.  She's a college junior getting ready to jet off to Santa Fe, but before she left Fredericksburg for the summer, I wanted to borrow her good looks and photogenic qualities to test out a new lens and some film I'm trying out (to be posted when it's developed).  We went out to Belmont [...]
  • Film: Summertime Adventures in Ohio

  • In late June, I ventured westward to Sandusky, Ohio, for an action-packed weekend with my best friend Marie and her parents Tom and Anne (my 2nd parents).  I left my digital camera at home and put all my trust in God and film. First stop: Cedar Point.  It was like I was back in middle school all [...]
  • Newborn: Twins Andrew + Grace

  • Introducing Andrew Edward and Grace Elizabeth.  They were born the morning of March 12; Andrew first, followed by Grace precisely one minute later.  They are happy and healthy little babies at eight weeks old and it was an honor to photograph them both before and after they entered the world.  Grace[...]
  • Senior Portraits: Jack

  • Here's Jack!  He's probably the most photogenic and charismatic 18 year old in town which made this shoot pretty easy for me.  We spent as many minutes as we could tolerate in the freezing cold to get these photos before the sun set.  For senior portraits, it was probably the shortest session on rec[...]
  • Maternity: Carolyn and Her Twins

  • This photo session got me very excited because it gave me the opportunity to operate outside of the typical maternity portrait style.  We could have gone the traditional route, but Carolyn is one cool mama.  And she was game for anything.  I wanted to do something in the city, something different an[...]
  • Senior Portraits: Michael

  • Michael is a graduating senior from Angola, Indiana.  These photos were taken in Tennessee, in the beautiful Smoky Mountains over the course of several days.  We had the awesome pleasure of warm weather and great lighting followed by the prettiest snowfall with big, fluffy flakes. [...]
  • Baby: Natalie

  • Introducing the cutest new resident of San Antonio, TX - Natalie Louise.  She's a very laid back baby without a care in the world.  I couldn't help myself - GIF of the many faces of Natalie:
  • Family: The Isaacs

  • I met this family at the Manassas Battlefield Park and after some brief chatting, realized I was hanging out with two fellow Boilermakers!  It's not that often we bump into each other out here in Virginia, so I considered it fate.  Stacie and Todd's two children were incredibly cute.  Lincoln is not[...]
  • Engagement: Morgan & Tom

  • Morgan and Tom are getting married in May at Sheridan Point Farm in Frederick, Maryland.  The wedding will be absolutely gorgeous because they're gorgeous people with an awesome vision for their day.  I enjoyed this engagement session a lot and especially loved that they brought their dog Macy along[...]
  • Engagement: Megan and Alex

  • Megan and Alex are getting married!  The wedding is in September 2014 at the Merriweather Manor in Leesburg, Virginia.  I'm especially excited for this wedding because a) I'm a bridesmaid, b) my husband is a groomsman and c) it's going to be very awesome seeing my totally rad sister-in-law marry suc[...]
  • Family: The Stepps

  • I truly enjoyed spending a warm September afternoon photographing this family at Bon Air Park in Arlington.  The weather was perfect and they were gorgeous.  The forethought and planning put into this session made it all the more enjoyable.  We emailed back and forth, exchanging ideas and suggestion[...]
