Natural light, natural settings & natural expressions

Ben at One!

I had the pleasure of photographing this little sweetie when he was just a few days old.  Now he is already a BIG BOY!!  I just love the canvas his mom had made.  It’s a collage of all his favorite things and the cute things he does at ONE!

One year olds are so fun to photograph.  They usually aren’t talking yet, but they are curious and mobile, and I love running around after them (often on my knees) so I can capture their curiosity and hopefully get some great smiles and laughs!!

Welcome to the BLOG! Thanks for stopping by! The best part of my job is connecting with people I photograph, and I am honored that they let me capture some of their special moments and share them here. My passions are photography, travel and design and I hope you find some tips or ideas you can use!  Enjoy!

The Experience Your photo session will last about 45 minutes to an hour, but can go longer if you are having fun and want more time! We will meet at a fun location in the DC area. I love to keep everyone moving, and I make your session fun and upbeat. We will get a combination of posed and more interactive/action shots. About two weeks after your shoot, you will get a password to your gallery. You can choose a la carte or packages (digital and prints) from your gallery images.

" " I couldn't be happier with the photos of my kids (9 months and 4 years). Maisi did an excellent job of getting simultaneous smiles and eye contact from both of them, which up until now I thought was impossible. She also managed to get my 4 year olds REAL smile, not just her "cheese" face. I am in love with the pictures-she brought out the best of everything- beautiful lighting, vibrant colors, attention to details like my daughter's hair blowing the right way in the wind and found a cool background. Maisi is a truly skilled professional. --Allison A.
