Three years ago, Jaime asked me to capture their firstborn in her first month. They’ve just had a little boy, and so I had the privilege of seeing their daughter, three years later, and their baby boy, who looks just like his older sister.

Since it’s my last year in DC for the cherry blossoms, I’ve managed to visit them four days in a row. This weekend, my friend (and fellow photographer) Bethany and her husband John spent the early morning hours with Jason and me so we could swap photos. I love Bethany and John together … they’re […]

Being the wife of a surgery resident certainly has its ups and downs, but one of the best parts is that my husband has several conferences throughout the year, and if I’m lucky enough to get permission to telework, I can tag along. This past summer, Jason attended the Telluride Experience with the Academy for […]

Hi friends! I’ve been doing this professional photography thing for the last 8 or so years, and I used to blog, but as I progressed in my career as a federal consultant, I let blogging, social media, and such fall to the wayside. I’m using this fall to get back in the game and will […]
