Northern Virginia Family Photographer

Am I the Northern Virginia Family Photographer for you?


Looking for a family photographer can be so overwhelming! By now you’ve spent some time here in my little corner of the Internet. I am based in Woodbridge, but serve Fairfax, Prince William and Stafford counties.  You have probably looked through my work (if you haven’t already, please do!) and you’re starting to feel like we are a good match for each other. Yay! I am genuinely excited that I may be the perfect photographer for you.

 I know you want amazing photos to capture your family, in this specific moment in time and you are also looking for a fun, stress-free experience.

 STEP ONE: do you like my work?

 I love lifestyle photography, which is a more photo journalistic style, but I also know that everyone wants a good picture or two of everyone looking at the camera and smiling. I will try to make sure your family session has some of both; posed smiles and honest interactions. Joyful spontaneity and guided movements. You will get the shot of everyone looking at the camera and smiling, but it will be the in-between interactions I capture that will be the shots you fall in love with. So, am I your perfect family photographer? Let’s look a little deeper, shall we? Below are a few family sessions that I want to showcase, to help you decide if my style of joyful portraits are for you! If you like what you see, continue on to Step Two. If not, that’s ok too.  I wish you all the best in your search for your perfect photographer.

This session took place at my client’s home and is a great example of how even a dark, gloomy winter day can produce beautiful pictures. Shooting in your home is a way of capturing your family exactly the way it is in this very moment, home and all.  Full post here…

Modeling Portfolio

This client wanted a more urban look to match her daughter’s spunky personality and it sure did work out for us! It was surprisingly chilly but this little one knocked it out of the park and we got her personality to show through, past the chill. Full post here…

Monster Cookies with Mom

Manassas VA Family Photographer

An example of an in-home lifestyle shoot.  There is something so special about being invited into someone’s home to create a visual record of a brief moment in their lives. This particular moment is a baker mama baking cookies with her two little boys.  Melt my heart and cover it in chocolate! Full post here…
