Soon to be Family of Four!  I first photographed this beautiful family when Alex was a newborn and then updated pictures when Alex was a toddler.  Such a treat to catch up with them, as they anticipate the arrival of baby boy #2 very soon, for maternity portraits in Washington, DC!  Alex will be the best… Continue reading Washington DC Maternity Photographer – Soon to be Family of Four!

How stunning is this glowing mama to be?!  I so enjoy the anticipation and excitement of maternity photo sessions. Such a special time to capture in pictures.

Washington DC Maternity Pictures with Spring Flowers

So, a warm February turned into a frigid March, and the cherry blossoms are on hold, but Alayne and Matt flew up from Florida for maternity pictures anyway (and today they are enjoying a snowy DC, for a springtime twist).  And I’m so glad they did!  I think their pictures turned out even better than we planned!  And thankfully… Continue reading Washington DC Maternity Pictures with Spring Flowers

Old Town Alexandria Family Photographer – Lucy

Lucy is one of the most expressive little girls I’ve ever photographed!  Isn’t she adorable?  We had a great time exploring in Old Town Alexandria taking family pictures, on a humid summer morning. Baby brother arriving in the fall! I think we wore her out. 🙂

What makes a finished picture? Behind the scenes look at the process.

Unless you’re a professional photographer, I’m sure it’s a bit of a mystery what happens to pictures – if anything – between the camera and a framed portrait on your wall. Today, a professional photographer is the lab, the retoucher and sometimes the printer too.  Digital photography certainly allows more creative control over each image,… Continue reading What makes a finished picture?

Isn’t B the most gorgeous mommy?  I enjoyed photographing this beautiful family who is adding a baby girl!

Talking about… Continue reading Washington DC Maternity Photographer – Becoming a Family of Four
