Sweet 15! ~ March 2016 ~ VA
Your 15th birthday is a reason to celebrate and with these two, there was double the reason! Kairi & Kai decided to bring their birthday in with a photo shoot with their friends. It was a good time in the studio with this crew! They had some fun, but they also had a message to send. Check out a few of the images from the session…

Happy 15th birthday, ladies!
Chris + Kim: Married! ~ July 5, 2014 ~ Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Gorgeous location. Beautiful day. Awesome couple. Perfect for a wedding!
It was a privilege to be present as an intimate group of family and friends gathered on a pristine beach in the Dominican Republic to witness the wedding of Chris and Kim. There is great beauty in simplicity and this wedding and day were a shining example of that. Chris and Kim’s love was evident and the joy of those in attendance was heartwarming.

Congratulations Chris and Kim!
Cedric + Eboni: Married! ~ May 24, 2014 ~ Baltimore, MD
Perfect. That’s the word I would use to describe the day and the feeling of Cedric and Eboni’s wedding. Just, perfect. Whether it was the gorgeous day…being perched up high overlooking the Baltimore Harbor…the beautiful simplicity of the ceremony…the genuineness of the vows that were exchanged…the clear love of those that came to witness the union…or perhaps even the comfortable ease of the connection between Cedric and Eboni…whatever it was, we were honored to be there to participate in and capture it. One of the many benefits of being a wedding photographer is being privy to people’s most private moments and in those moments being graced with the occasional unexpected reminder of what true love looks like. And if that wasn’t enough to make a photographer’s heart full…I’ll share with you three more words: bride, groom + carousel. *Swoon*

Congratulations Cedric & Eboni!
Andre + Shelly: Married! ~ May 23, 2014 ~ Lanham, MD
We had a great time capturing the beautiful wedding of Andre and Shelly. They are such a fun loving couple and that was evident by the awesome group of family and friends that gathered to support and celebrate with them. A great time was had by all – take a peek at the slideshow to see for yourself (click on the image below):
Congratulations Andre and Shelly!
The Youngs + 1 ~ January 2014
It was an absolute pleasure photographing the Young family as they prepare to welcome their second little one into the world. Nedvonne, Natasha and little miss Milan spent the afternoon with me in the studio capturing this beautiful time in their lives. I’ve known Natasha for years – sharing both college and sorority ties – and it is a joy to see her and her family happy and growing. So, without further ado, please meet the Youngs…
Congratulations and I can’t wait to meet the newest little addition!
Evan and the Great Museum of Natural History Escapade ~ January 2014 ~ Washington, DC
This has been a COLD winter so far! And so, as much as I adore photographing people outside, the winter challenges me to come up with fun indoor session locations. On this blustery winter Saturday, it was great to head to the National Museum of Natural History to catch up with Raychon and little Evan, with Uncle Kyran in tow. I’ve said it before…it is such a wonderful privilege to see and photograph families over time. And cutie pie Evan seems to be growing so fast! We had a great time making our way through the Museum – and it’s quite possible that the grown-ups among us enjoyed it just as much as the little one! (If you haven’t been to this museum lately, you should definitely check it out again!) Here are a few of my favorites from the day:
We did take a little time to stop and, well, play…lol.
What a fun day! Looking forward to the next museum visit!
Courtney & Ericka: Married! ~ December 31, 2013 ~ Alexandria, VA
I had the great pleasure of bringing in the New Year by capturing the wonderfully beautiful and intimate wedding of Courtney and Ericka. What better way to celebrate the new beginnings of a new year than by witnessing the beginning of a new life for such an awesome couple! Their gorgeous wedding was held just a few blocks from where they had their first date, bringing everything full circle. Every detail of this night and this wedding was magical. Want to see?

Congratulations Courtney & Ericka!
