  • Newborn: Baby A, 2 weeks old

    I incorporate a few poses into my newborn sessions, even though I’m not primarily a posed photographer. I bring a few props (baskets, blankets, floor drop), but I love to use what parents have on hand for dressing and swaddling. I feel like this ensures that the poses and the look are natural. Years from…

  • Newborn: Baby M

    I really love last minute bookings, especially when it means being able to spend time with a new baby. Baby M’s red hair and sweet expressions melted me! Big brother J’s liveliness was just the best next to his sleepy new sister and had my face aching from all the smiling. The early days with…

  • What could have been missed.

    I consider myself very observant of small details. Especially when it comes to quiet moments with my family, or quiet moments by myself. Even then, there are details and moments that I’m 100% sure that I miss, that only an outside observer would be able to notice or photograph. These are some favorites from sessions…

  • Engaged: Felicia & Joe

    Felicia is one of my dearest friends, one of the realest and most creative people I know. I am still over the moon happy that she met someone so perfect for her and her family… some of these photos really caught my breath! Congratulations, Felicia and Joe. I can’t wait to photograph the big day.…

  • Newborn: Baby A

    Baby A was fairly sleepy during my visit, waking just a couple of times to protest not being held close enough. What a sweetheart. Sleeping through his big brother’s gymnastics and keyboard-playing, completely oblivious to all the toy cars crashing into each other, and the chatter of his family. Also of note: babies look SO…

  • Newborn: Baby R

    I won’t go deep into my beliefs here; you definitely didn’t sign up for that kind of thing this morning. But, I will say. Some of these photos really tugged at this feeling I’ve had where, I’ve known my children always, and they knew me. I’ll stop there, because it’s an interesting rabbit hole that…

  • Newborn: Baby E

    I write this post in silence. Well, minus the air conditioning’s (loud) whisper, the fridge’s humming, the dog licking her paws, and the house creaking when the wind blows. Finally, a comfortable day in NOVA, when the temperature has not risen to 80, in late September. These photos of Baby E were taken and processed…

  • Our {other} children

    “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” ~Anatole France For many of us, the idea of a home without our “other” children is one that is cold, still, and silent. Here’s to documenting these loves.

  • 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.…
