Real > Perfect

I'm going to be honest with you...I have no idea what kind of images we are going to capture during your session. The truth is, every session is unique.

My goal is to capture you and your family where you are right now...because, actually, you are not my primary client: your kids are. 

You'll be passing down prints and photo books from our session to your kids (and their kids) to rummage through, remember, and retell the stories about their growing-up years, about their mom and dad, about their siblings, and about what life was like "back then."

So while we will get a lot of laughter and love, we'll might also get some tears and angry looks. But that's ok....

...because to me, real is always better than perfect!

I live in Vienna, Virginia with my four sons, our Swissy, Aspen, and 15 backyard chickens. I have a degree in economics. I'm a birth doula. I'm working on a nursing degree and I intend to become a midwife. I speak German and I enjoy adventure...backpacking, rock climbing, CrossFit, mud races, triathlons, and playing the guitar around a campfire with my kids. Someday, I'll learn to fly. And when my kids grow up, I'm going to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine.
