I love being outdoors, sitting by fires, entertaining with friends, and going to hear live music with my soulmate, my husband! I enjoy a good glass of wine after a fierce session of kickboxing. My family keeps me busy and I love every minute of them: seven kids, ages 7-18, and one dog. I was born & raised in Montgomery County, and recently moved to Adamstown in the country and are enjoying a slower pace of life. I discovered photography was my passion in 2008, and have been traveling around northern Virginia, DC and Maryland doing photo shoots ever since.
Photography has opened up a whole new perspective for me. I love to capture subjects as they are, and help people notice small beautiful details in the world around us. I use a natural style of photography, preferring to highlight the moments that make the subject special and unique. Fussy or sleepy babies are no problem – these photos are ones that will be cherished the most when the baby is grown. I snap photos of wrinkly foreheads, pouty expressions, and big yawns, instead of waiting for a ‘perfect’ expression. I specialize in newborn, child and family photography, because I am so inspired by the love families have for each other.
