Thank you for your interest in my photography.  

I'm based in Arlington, Virginia and specialize in natural light portrait photography in the Northern Virginia/Maryland/Washington DC metro area.  

 Natural light portrait photography is all about the people and the light! I've always been a fan of unconventional portraits and how photographs can tell a story by preserving a fraction of a second in time.  

It's such an honor for me to be entrusted with capturing those small authentic moments, the details you always want to remember, the unique expressions, the dynamics of your relationships, and the personalities of each of my clients.  

I'd love to collaborate to see how I can use my passion for photography to tell your story.

Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.

More about me....

After graduating from William & Mary in 1990, I began my career as a Certified Public Accountant working for Arthur Andersen & Company and then as a finance manager for Accenture Consulting.  When our first child was born twenty-three years ago, my mother gave me an all-manual camera (a Pentax K1000 for any photog enthusiast out there!).  Once I loaded my first roll of black and white film, I was hooked. Now, as a wife and mother to three young adults, each year brings me more clarity: be present, reflective of the past, and optimistic for the future. I feel so lucky to be able to use my photography skills to help others document a special time or just an everyday moment from their lives.
