Home is where your story begins. Having spent a majority of my adolesence in a children’s home in Germany, I did not understand the true meaning of what it’s like to have a loving and welcoming home. It all changed when I came to the United States over a decade ago. As an au pair …..
I don’t know about you, but I feel like I hit the jackpot with this adorable family. How picture perfect are the four of them? Four year old, Lilly, very much reminds me of a little girl I cared for when I first came to the U.S. as an au pair ten something years ago. …..
“First off, I love your pictures! I have been following along, as we have been waiting to start our journey into parenthood. I am due 12/8 and I am interested in scheduling maternity and newborn sessions. Please let me know what the next best steps are!” When you get inquiries like that you just know …..
“You’re so tiny.” Those were my exact words when I first saw Kimmie. She might be tiny, but that baby bump of hers did not disappoint. What a stunning mommy to be. Not every expectant woman feels strongly about maternity photography. As a mom and photographer specializing in newborn and family photography, I would like …..
In search for a meaningful birthday gift to his wife, Tiffany, Mark inquired about the maternity session last month.

I believe that capturing these special memories in the comfort …..
I believe that some things in life are meant to be. A few months ago, I advertised for a Mother’s Day Giveaway. While there were many moms nominated to win the complimentary photo session, Owen’s mom, Samantha, ended up being the lucky winner. Hearing her story and meeting her little nugget for his one year …..
Thinking back to the beautiful maternity session with Svenja, I could hardly wait to meet the little princess. She was born just a few days later, two weeks earlier than expected. With the summer being so hot, I met the family of three for an outdoor newborn photography session at Rust Manor in Leesburg. Hot …..
Cake smash photography can be super cute. That’s if your baby is really into it, literally. The truth is, a lot of babies want nothing to do with smashing a cake to celebrate their very first birthday. This may be very disappointing especially to those parents who spent a pretty penny on a custom cake. …..
This is not a sneak peek of a recent newborn or family session that you would expect to see from me. Today, I am actually sharing a wedding with you that I photographed last weekend. So far, I have avoided weddings like the plague. A few weeks ago, my friend asked me to be her …..
