    Old Town Alexandria Family Photo Session

    Saturday, September 6th, 2014




    This little fella liked to RUN!!  We were ALL sweaty by the time their photo session was over, and you can tell that he was ready for a good, long summer nap when we finished.  We explored some of my favorite nooks and crannies of Old Town, Alexandria.

    Snow in Alexandria

    Sunday, December 15th, 2013

    I have just finished packaging and mailing out my last orders of 2013!  Now it’s time to get ready for Christmas and take some pictures of my own kiddos.


    We’ve enjoyed the snow and cold weather.  Sometimes it’s fun to just cuddle up and stay inside!

    Mother Daughter Portraits

    Sunday, July 14th, 2013

    One of my favorite clients wanted to do a special photo shoot with her daughters for her 10th wedding anniversary.  She wanted to take some photos in her wedding dress as a surprise for her husband, and then do some shots of just the girls.  I loved this idea, and I think we found the perfect location in a gorgeous garden.  We were so excited to find a robin’s egg, newly hatched, in the grass.  It was a magical day.  I love the idea of having a photo in your wedding gown with your girls so they can see how beautiful you looked on your wedding day!

    Summer is so fun in Washington, DC.  These photographs were taken in Lady Bird Johnson Park along the Potomac River.  The statue is the Navy-Merchant Marine Memorial of Waves and Gulls.

    A Cold, rainy day.

    Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

    The end of February/beginning of March is always so hard to get through!!  It feels like spring will never arrive!  I love snow, so I wish it would either snow a lot or just warm up and be nice enough to go outside and play.  Today it was rainy and sleeting/raining.  I love this shot.  Kind of pensive and quiet.  Just how I was feeling today.

    Mother Son Portraits (Old Town Alexandria, VA)

    Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

    This was a special shoot for me because I understand the special bond between a mom and son.   This age is wonderful because little boys are full of energy, but they are old enough to talk, listen and engage.  But they also love to laugh, tell jokes, and have fun.  We had a great time together, and their love really came through in the photos.










    Family Portraits {Alexandria, VA}

    Saturday, August 11th, 2012

    This was a FUN session.  Although it was a little hot, we had a great time walking through a beautiful garden, throwing rocks into a little stream, and running in a field.  It was easy to capture the love and affection in this gorgeous family!

    Family Portrait

    How beautiful is this family?  Had so much fun following them around while we walked, blew bubbles, and did some posing for GORGEOUS portraits in Old Town Alexandria.  Don’t you just love the little girl’s dress??  The mom said she got it at www.shrimpandgritskids.com  Just love the big bow, too.

    I call this one “Refreshing”

    Reminds me of the beautiful quote:

    “Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”

    This photograph pretty much sums up my son at five:  he can’t just take a sip.  He has to get his whole wet!
