About My Work
I have been studying photography since 2006 and launched my photography business in 2008. I absolutely adore photographing newborn babies, children and families and have done quite a bit of freelance photography for Arlington Magazine and Bethesda Magazine.
I was elated to be selected as a finalist in the 17th Annual Reader's Photo Contest by Popular Photography magazine in 2011. In November 2012, Zenfolio selected my website as the site of the week! In February 2013, Photodex asked to feature one of my newborn slideshows on their site and also published a blog post of mine in June 2013, which was reblogged to Skip Cohen's blog in September 2013!
In October 2013, I was thrilled to be twice-awarded the Accolade of Excellence in the WPPI Online Competition. Macaroni Kid Leesburg also published one of my blogs on newborn photography in September 2013 and another post on taking great family photos at the beach in July 2014. I was honored to present online lecture for the Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online Division in April 2014 about the struggles and rewards of running my own photography business. I photographed the families of two talented local photographers in 2014 and four others in 2015. I love being the photographer that other photographers trust!
Zenfolio posted my images as "Zenspiration" to their social media sites in August 2015, September 2015, and December 2015. In November 2015, I was hired to create a portrait gallery of NICU graduates for the new Fairfax INOVA Women and Children's Hospital.
I published an article about my newborn sessions on the Ever Illuminated blog in January 2016, and my newborn photography was featured on BabyCenter in February 2016! In September 2016, I was chosen as NewbornPhotography.com's Spotlight Photographer.
I am a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), National Association of Professional Child Photographers(NAPCP), and NewbornPhotography.com. I am a "favorite" photographer of Red Tricycle DC.
