  • Engaged: Heather & Sarah

    It was Tuesday evening on H Street, on the one rainy day of the week. But in Sally’s Middle Name, this engagement session completely brightened my spirits. These artists (Heather a talented singer/songwriter, Sarah an amazing DC photographer) met at music festival years ago, fell in love, relocated to DC, where they hold such a…

  • Maternity: Marcy, Rahmin, M

    Marcy is one of my oldest friends, and is expecting her second babe later this month (oh my gosh, it’s already September). Photographing her family before they become 4 was so special for me—being a part of someone’s life at such different points in time is so exciting and humbling. So excited to have reconnected.…

  • Second Birthday: X

    If you keep up with my Facebook posts, you already read about my surprise when super shy X turned and began talking to me. While I’ve always found the emotion in family moments so rewarding to capture on camera, I sometimes forget about the rewarding feeling when a shy kiddo talks to you. Makes me…

  • Family: Kim, Bob, & Kids!

    I absolutely loved delivering this family’s gallery to them. This was the family I said was full of unicorn children who were SO comfortable in front of the camera; I got so many wonderful photos of them smiling right at the lens, and also so many sweet, candid moments (my favorite, if you didn’t already…

  • Newborn: Baby R

    I love my drives out to Leesburg; changes of scenery are important for sanity, in my opinion. Driving west every so often is necessary, and this newborn session was the perfect reason. Baby R’s mom and dad are so deeply in love with her. This 4th of July baby had a tummy ache for a…

  • 100 days project

    I read somewhere that a lot of growth happens when you focus on your personal work. I’m 54 days into a personal project: one photo a day for the “summer.” It’s taken me back to how my photography journey began, which was just documenting a little bit of my life. Back then it was just…

  • Newborn: Baby N

    Baby N is a beautiful, content, new little guy. “Calm” is the word I chose to describe this family’s home, just a month after N joined his parents. I love speaking with new parents about the transition to becoming a larger family. Even when N’s parents told me about the not-so-glamorous aspects of their new…

  • The places we are

    For session location ideas, I like to remind families to think about places that are special to them. Where does your family usually spend their time? Where do you want to remember your family together, years from now? This family has roots in the Springfield area, and they were excited to be photographed at Lake Accotink.…

  • One Whole Year: Little S & Family

    This gorgeous family chose me to take their fall photos last year in Old Town Alexandria. This was one of my favorites from that morning! Then, they were amazing enough to choose me again, to capture baby S’s first birthday photos. It’s such a special thing to be able to photograph babies as they grow.…

  • When she came to this hospital, she was a part of you.

    I try not to share too much of my personal life here; my stories are about you. In honor of mother’s day, though, I’d like to share something. When our children were born, my husband and I were not husband and wife yet. This doesn’t matter, at any time. That’s not what this post is about.…
