Andre treated his parents to a family portrait session during their visit to DC. We spent the hour strolling through the Smithsonian Institution’s lush Enid A. Haupt Garden, golden sunset backlighting the deep green plantlife. It was nearly 100° by sunset, but a gentle breeze helped keep us cool and made the evening all the more beautiful.
I can’t remember a more photogenic family…they were all smiles and happiness, and we even got a few giggles out of Raylah! Congratulations Cherry and Roosvelt!
It’s giggle-filled playtime sessions like these that make me even more thankful to be a photographer - and you’ll see, I found my new assistant!
BONUS: we got to see Kai get up close and personal with his sister for the first time - very touching moments indeed.
On a surprisingly quiet, stormy July 4th afternoon in DC, Tyerell surprised his girlfriend Felicia with a beautiful diamond ring in the dreamy Luce Center of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Congratulations you two!
It was a beautiful evening ~ first, I photographed a proposal (#shesaidyes)! Then, I picnicked on the Capitol west terrace with my bff Kristine (whose articles are rocking over at Military Times, yeah!) as we watched the spectacular fireworks display this evening here in Washington, DC.
Happy Fourth of July!

Attempting to get their dog to lay with dignity in Sharon’s lap, we burst
out laughing at him laying like a big baby instead!
~ Precious and sweet like a little flower ~
Everything is more fun with bubbles - not to mention these girls’ stunning gowns! Thank you for a lovely afternoon narrowly dodging a storm and ending up with warm memories.
Shannon & Justin welcomed precious little Naomi in March, and held their portrait session at their beautiful home in Virginia so we could include their dogs in the photos.
Rosa thought she and Jesse were celebrating their 5-year anniversary with a portrait session at the National Arboretum here in DC, but he planned to propose to her during the session - all captured beautifully by my associate Maria.
~ Congratulations Jesse & Rosa! ~
Simon & Deena are the definition of happiness together - full of laughter, life, and not afraid to break out dancing without warning. It was a beautiful afternoon with them downtown!
To keep up with their tradition in LA, we held a mini family portrait session down by the monuments to capture their family vacation here - and Vivian’s two missing front teeth!
As peak bloom comes to a close, petals scatter in the wind and turn the ground pink!
The perfect setting for Kim’s elegant white gown.
I absolutely adored watching these two together as I photographed them around the cherry blossoms - romantic, easy, and happy to let me take their photos well past sunset for some fun nighttime shots.
A warm, colorful sunrise for two happy couples visiting DC during
the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Enjoy!
