Cherry Blossoms


For me personally, returning year after year to the beautiful spots under the blossoms is a familiar ritual. Washington DC’s iconic cherry blossoms are a perennial favorite for family portraits. Whether you’re new in the DC area, a lifelong resident, or a visitor for the season, bringing your family to the fairy-tale setting for a portrait is a wonderful way to commemorate your family’s unique DC story. 

My bliss is photographing children + families together. While constantly working to improve my craft (the technical side of things) I also constantly listen to my own inner voice, the art side of my work, which is where I learn to see heartfelt emotion and expressions of connection between family members, where I learn to see personality in a such a way that it can be reflected back through the photograph I am creating. I believe every family has a story and every image I create should be a true picture of your story. Some parts of our stories are universal – mothering, fathering, the delight of a happy child, the connection in a touch or a gaze. And some parts of our stories are uniquely our own. The artist in me is happiest when I’ve found both the universal and the unique, and deliver images that light you up inside.
