This Northern Virginia photographer loves to drive and I’m happy to travel to all parts of the Washington DC metro area (and beyond!) but a small travel fee will apply to areas outside of Loudoun County, as calculated from my home in 20175. A 50% retainer and contract are due to book your session with the balance due at or before your session. All prices are subject to 6% Virginia state sales tax as applicable by law.

Giving back

A little bit about how I give back to the community through my photography.

Preemie Prints: My first daughter was born 7 weeks prematurely, and there was not a service at the time that would allow us to have her pictures taken. Because of this, I am a proud affiliate photographer for Preemie Prints. If you or someone you know has a baby in the NICU at INOVA Loudoun, or is a recent NICU Graduate, please contact me for more information on how I can offer you a complimentary in-NICU or NICU grad session.

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep: Offering healing and hope through professional bereavement portraiture.

Animal Rescues: A huge animal lover since birth, and having 2 of our own rescued dogs and a rescued cat, photographing adoptable pets is something I am very passionate about. Always happy to offer my services free of charge for local animal rescues (including those on Long Island, New York, as my schedule allows).
