This is me: Blaire Elizabeth.

I’m a mom, wife, friend, and photographer in Northern VA.


I was born and raised on Long Island, NY. "2nd Ave" is the street where my grandfather lived. He was a photographer and had a dark-room in his basement which is where I first remember falling in love with all things photography. That is where the name Second Ave Photography comes from.


I accept only a limited number of bookings each month so you will have my full attention. Working with young children has always been one of my favorite things in life and I think they can tell.


My promise to you is simple: No forced smiles, no gritted teeth, and a unique gallery you will love looking back on.


Custom photography is a personal investment. If you're looking for someone with tons of experience working with kids, attention to detail, hand-editing the "old fashioned" way, a curated collection of premier products to display your photos as well as digital options (because after all, it is 2022), then we may be a great fit!
