The D family came into the studio yesterday for some mother daughter portraits. I cannot tell you how much I was looking forward to this shoot, one of the first shoots in our new studio. My friends can, though, because it’s basically all I talked about for the week prior. I had a few lighting […]

T first came to me to celebrate a milestone in her life. It was an upcoming birthday, and she wanted to document this moment, who she was now, and the place she had worked hard to come to in life, as a PhD and postdoc, a scientist, a leader, a woman, and a mentor. We […]

Portrait of a dancer: In which I wax poetic about the addictive rabbit hole of tango. (TL;DR Tango is not the glitz and glam and cheese you think it is. So I set out to capture tango dancers in raw portraits, done in 3 minutes per subject. Every imperfection in tact, no detail lost. See […]

Things look different around here! We are still under construction, thank you for being patient as the dust settles and we get everything set up and live.

It’s been a nice break – I’ve been spending lots and lots of time cuddled up with one very adorable little baby.  Now that I’m back shooting, it’s time to schedule Spring Minis!  As always, dibs goes to the email list first.  You can sign up at the SUBSCRIBE link above, or click –here–.  Spaces […]

If you’ve had a session with me recently, you know I am waddling around looking quite pregnant, expecting my fourth (what?!) child.  Four children.  So far that is three sleepy, wrinkly newborns, three first steps, three first words, three adorable curly heads, three first days of kindergarten, and so on.  And all of them gone […]

It can be so easy to take this job lightly.  I mean, we push buttons, capture moments, and photograph everything these days.  And when you shoot professionally, the specifics of shooting in manual, focusing, and making split second decisions to capture that moment -well- come naturally, like breathing.  You’re in the moment, making people laugh, […]

This little lady was so completely full of spunk.  Adorable little lady with personality, golden crown, fluffy tutu, a cute cake to destroy, and I was one happy photographer.

Sometimes you pull up to the location, a place you have worked at a thousand times before, and the light is completely breathtaking.  Then your clients arrive, and you meet an adorable, perfectly toddler little man, and you know the portraits are going to be perfect.  That was this day. Glyndon Park is one of […]

So I realized I hadn’t officially announced our big news!  We have a growing family – #4 is on her way! We are super excited (and watching my older kids excitement makes me tear up every single time), and can’t wait to meet this little person at the end of the year.  It does mean […]
