National Arboretum Family Photos | The “K” Family

The colors of fall are incredible, which is one reason why I love this season of family photo sessions. I recently met up with a lovely family at the National Arboretum in DC for pictures, and the light and leaves were just perfect.

I so enjoyed capturing the affection between these adorable sisters and their parents. Here are just a few favorites from this session.


DC Birth Photography | A Home Birth

Being present at and documenting a birth is probably one of the most awe-inspiring things I get to do with my camera. Each story is unique, powerful, and beautiful. I consider it a great privilege to witness such an incredible event.

I recently got to photograph this amazing birth…and the strength of the mom and dad. Shared with permission, here a few photos of this birth story.  A big congratulations to this family!

Capitol Hill Family Photos | Ben’s Family

Here’s a confession: sometimes when I edit sessions my mouth begins to hurt because I’m smiling so much.  It’s true…I can’t help but smile back at the laughing, joyful faces on my computer screen.  This was one of those sessions.

Ben is a completely adorable little guy.  I met up with his family at Garfield Park on Capitol Hill in DC last week, and I so enjoyed spending time with them taking fall photos.

Here are a few of my favorites from this family session.  See if you can’t help but smile when you see them, too!

Nancy - I tried to pick a favorite, but I couldn’t. All capture the joy this family has in being together. And yes, I am smiling!😊

Apple Picking Family Photos | Priscilla, Josiah, and Family

Having a fall birthday, I think I’ve always been a bit partial to this season of the year.  And living in the DC area means I actually get to experience fall in all its golden colors and fun activities. One of those experiences I didn’t have as a child growing up in Texas is apple picking.

I didn’t know what I was missing!  And what a picturesque setting for family photos. I recently photographed this dear family (whom I’m sure you’ve seen on the blog before) at the lovely Stribling Orchard in Markham, VA. While there are certainly closer orchards to DC, this part of Virginia is incredibly beautiful with the rolling hills and trees.  It was definitely worth the drive.

Priscilla is so darling…and grown-up! She adores her baby brother, Josiah.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from this family session.
