I am a Virginia native (the northern part) who has lived half of her life in California (the southern part). I have an MFA in Photography from Cal Arts in Los Angeles (one of the top 10 art schools in the country) , a BA in Art from UC Santa Barbara and I have been studying art and photography seriously from the age of 14. 

My photography style has been described as dreamy. gorgeous. emotive. whimsical.  My personal artwork has always focused on every day life with roots in my own narrative. My story.

I am based in Oakton, Virginia and I serve the Washington, DC area. I also travel often to Ventura, California and the beaches of Delaware, as my loved ones long to be near the sea...

When working with clients, I shoot a mixture of more formal portraits and lifestyle images, beautifully tailoring each session to your family or teen/senior. All photo sessions include up to two hours of shooting time, all of the high resolution digital negatives (at least 75), and an elegant online gallery from which to order albums/prints/frames and to share with friends. Session prices begin at $650 (please contact me for more info). A small sampling of my family/senior sessions can be seen through my portoflio on this site, and the "client" link at left.

I would love to show you your story!
