Last night I met the Thomas family at the Carlyle House in downtown Alexandria for their annual family portraits! You may recognize them from a session I did a few weeks ago, but this time we had a whole hour to dedicate to just their family. I loved getting to see them again! It felt […]

The Thomases | A Downtown Alexandria Family

Families, Portraits

When the whole family gets together, it’s the perfect time for some updated family photos! Especially if you’ve added a new grandbaby to the group this year! Melanie and Tom know that it gets rarer and rarer to have all three of their daughters home together, so they decided to take advantage of this holiday […]

My day started off the Aschenbach family! While I was in the Nashville airport two days ago, Beth from Palm Beach Lately (go check out her cute blog!!) messaged me asking if I could squeeze in a family session for them this week while the whole gang was together! It can be so hard to get […]

Are you guys ready to hear the craziest small world story? I met the Fox family last night and as we were walking to the first location I asked Annemarie and her husband, Mike, how they met. “We met in high school!” “Oh that’s so cute. Did you grow up around here?” “Yes we went […]

The Foxes | An Alexandria Family at Green Spring Gardens

Families, Portraits

It. Has. Been. A. Week. And it’s not over yet! But I know I love my job because the more I work, the more energy I have. Usually during a session I can feel the magic being made and have to resist the urge to speed home to look at the images, but that feeling […]

Sessions with returning clients are some of my absolute favorites because it is like I am just catching up with old friends!! You may recognize the McGlade family from last spring when they got their first family portraits done for mama’s birthday in Old Ellicott City. Well, now they have moved down to Alexandria, their […]

Love is in the air!! On Saturday I got to photograph Kyle surprise his girlfriend as he popped the question. Spoiler alert: she said YES!! I met up with Kyle on Friday for a little planning time where he showed me exactly where he wanted to propose. He had been wanting to ask her to […]

Kyle + Emily | A Baltimore Proposal at Fort McHenry

Engagements, Portraits

I honestly thought with COVID-19 I would not do a single senior or grad session this year, and it broke my heart. My business began in College Park at the University of Maryland taking grad photos for my fellow Terps. Every year, I look forward to these sessions! I was so sad because I genuinely […]

Charlotte Johanna McShane came into the world on March 5th and I got to meet her on her one week old birthday! She is a precious little human and I’m telling you…she is a natural model. This was probably the easiest newborn session I have ever had because she was aware the whole time, but […]
