About Me

Me - well, I’m the nerd. The big smile. The tomboy. The crier at the kid’s play. The calm in the storm. The rule follower.

I love my job - the photography, the amazing families, the inspiring seniors. I love the technical part that challenges the nerd in me to find new ways to make the photograph I’m envisioning.  I love that light can change the whole feeling of a photo.  I love that a photograph can capture this pure moment of love between a mama and her baby, and I want to give you amazing, quality images that will be gorgeous in print or spread across the web for years to come.  I don’t want to give you the fad of the day or a snapshot labeled as a portrait. I give you the classic portrait with a modern edge.  

I'll be there for you through the whole process of making beautiful portraits.  There to help pick out the perfect outfits.  I’ll be the calm one when you think there is no way we will get a decent picture of your child.  I’ve been there.  (Oh I’ve been there as the mom, but it’s okay.)  I’m a very patient photographer.  I’m building trust with your child and waiting for that moment (brief as it may be) when they give me that genuine look that will bring a smile to your face for decades to come.

 I would love to talk with you about creating beautiful art for your family. I am located in the Bethesda, MD area. You can contact me here to find out more information.
