I know we're headed somewhere / I can see how far we've come

I might have only been 5 when New Miserable Experience was released, but that just means I've been able to live my entire life with the Gin Blossoms and their hits in my head ❤️ Last night was perfect - photographing the first 3 songs and then dancing and singing my heart out for the rest of their set until BNL came on stage. I can't say it enough, I freaking LOVE my job, and I don't think there's any other career that could fill my heart and soul the way photographing concerts does.

Fresh headshots for this beautiful dancer!! It was a blast working with Sarah last month to get her ready for auditions. Are you in need of an updated headshot? DM me and let's get you on the schedule!


Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there - the ones with kids, the ones with fur babies, the ones who are expecting a child (or two!), the ones who are waiting and wishing for baby and the ones who might not even know this will be the last Mother's Day that doesn't apply to them ❤️

I am always honored when my friends ask me to photograph milestone moments for them. I know there are many other wonderful photographers in the area - many of whom I respect and am friends with!
So, it really means a lot when friends do choose me as their photographer 😍 I was thrilled when Amy asked me to photograph her maternity session, as I took her maternity photos several years ago when she was pregnant with her first! I am so excited for them to welcome twin little girls later this spring!!

Dear Mr. Think Tank... wheels down. Take a break, old friend ❤️

Last shoot of 2021 is in the books! I'm so grateful to ALL my clients who have made it a point to book a session because us small businesses are still struggling as we look at this pandemic-soon-to-be-endemic world. So thankful that I am still able to pay my bills doing what I love!
A very long overdue shout out to all the gear and companies that makes my life as a professional photographer easier - my suitcase for rolling with me (ba doom cha!), my double holster camera strap, for keeping my paperwork managed, for the beautiful galleries I deliver to my clients and of course for being the camera in my hands since I was 15 ❤️ excited to (hopefully) start 2022 entering the world of mirrorless shooting with the insane camera... Come on Santa baby, hurry up and bring those boxes to .foto as quick as Rudolph can!!!


Not sure what to get someone on your holiday gift list- or just want to lock in 2021 rates before they increase in 2022? Grab a gift card to save for a rainy day! They're the perfect gift and can be applied toward ANY session. Have someone having a baby? Know a small business that could use some fresh branding photos? You need a new headshot? Gift cards apply to all these styles of sessions and more!


I have zero words because this picture has a thousand of them, at least. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Sarah & Tyler - November 11, 2018

It wouldn't be 11/11 if I wasn't reliving this amazing video and crying the entire time. Happy anniversary to our friends Sarah and Tyler!!


I've been honored to have some amazing opportunities to photograph politicians such as President Obama and (then Vice) President Biden - and I send my congratulations to governor-elect who I briefly met at when he attended their 50th anniversary gala! Hope to see you at many more events at the only National Park for the performing arts, Governor Youngkin! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The first show I've shot since the pandemic.

So many emotions... but the simplest way to sum it up was, it felt like coming home.
Let's do it again tonight at the Wolf Trap Ball!

Fall 2021 Mini Sessions

Holy cow guys, I only have ONE slot left for my minis in October! There is a chance I *might* do another day in November if you aren't able to book on this day, but no promises. Thank you so much to all my returning clients for booking these so quickly - I can't wait to catch up with ya'll!

It’s World Photography Day! To celebrate, I would love to see you share your favorite photo I've taken of you below in the comments!! 😍


I think we all feel a new season in the air... while I'm sad to say goodbye to summer days at the pool, I definitely am not mad about some cool, fall vibes coming our way!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With the world (mostly) opening up again, perhaps it's time to update your headshot! Maybe you started a new business during the pandemic - or maybe you switched up your look since you were working from home! If you want a headshot that shows your personality, I'd love to help - indoor, outdoor, on location- I do it all! DM me to set up your session! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Katie + Derek | Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Wedding — Lock & Company

I BLOGGED. Who saw that one coming?!

Katie + Derek | Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Wedding — Lock & Company It’s been months since this wedding but looking through the photos to select which ones to post today brought back every single emotion I felt that day, as JD and I photographed this incredibly special couple and BLAST of a wedding. Derek and Katie (and Derek’s entire family!) are so special to ...


Throw back Thursday to this amazing portrait session and those blossoms and love and friends and of course, Taylor Swift


I just bought tickets for my first event since the pandemic (seeing at the brand spanking new in case you want to join), and it has me ALL kinds of excited for live shows!! So naturally, I had to dig into the archives and share a photo of a pre-pandemic performance. This shot of performing at was electric - breaking bow strings and slaying some seriously sweet songs... I am so ready for performances and festivals this summer and fall!


I am so proud to have teamed up with the Loudoun County Sheriff's office to help them capture new images of their deputies for their website redesign. It was a great experience to meet and talk to the officers who work in my community, and put my skills to use for this campaign to recruit talented candidates of all ethnicities and backgrounds to apply to the force!

Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman and the agency’s Employment Section announced today the launch of a new recruiting and hiring website designed to continue bringing the best talent to the LCSO.

The new website, JoinLCSO.com, gives visitors a unique view of the various career opportunities available at the largest, full-service Sheriff’s Office in Virginia. In his message to applicants, Sheriff Chapman said, “we are looking for people who can think critically, innovatively solve problems, communicate, and serve as leaders in the community.”

JoinLCSO.com also highlights the excellent starting salary, benefits, training, and numerous incentives our employees receive. The recruiting website will play an important role in ensuring the agency continues to attract and hire the best applicants to serve Loudoun County and our citizens.

While law enforcement agencies across the nation struggle to recruit applicants, the LCSO continues to receive great interest from individuals wishing to join our team. In the past two years the LCSO has hired 62 pre-certified law enforcement officers from local police departments in Virginia, and an additional 18 sworn officers from out of state. The new hires have filled positions in patrol, courts, and corrections.

The agency’s professional reputation in the law enforcement community and its creative recruiting initiatives have helped the LCSO reach its lowest vacancy rate in decades last December.

This was the last live performance I photographed before the pandemic shut down the arts community. It's been over a year, but performances are finally starting to return, and I cannot WAIT to return to my ladders in the dark during dress rehearsal or crouching in the pit for the first three songs of a set - no matter the performer or venue, I AM READY FOR YOU!

Photos from Lock & Company's post 05/24/2021

To love and kiss to sweetly hold / For the dancing and the dreaming / Through all life's sorrows / And delights /
I'll swim and sail on savage seas / With never a fear of drowning / And gladly ride the waves of life / If you will marry me


Our Cinco de Mayo was pretty chill, but that just means I'm up ready to hustle hard today!! Contracts to send, sessions to edit - the world is feeling a bit more like 2019, and I'll raise a glass to that!


Weddings looked pretty different in 2020, and even now in 2021, things are still a bit of a wild ride! While I have loved getting to do these intimate ceremonies and portrait sessions, I am crossing all my fingers and toes for my 2020 and 2021 couples that restrictions are further lifted so they can have the day they dreamed of!


Spring is a time for new beginnings, and I am so happy for all the families I know that are expecting! I am quite thrilled to NOT be a mom right now 😂 but that doesn't mean I don't love celebrating and playing with others' little guys and gals! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have a group of clients that I call my "legacy" couples (people whose engagement, wedding and maternity/newborn I've photographed) - and Kirsten and Andrew are my latest couple to join the gang as they welcome a baby boy to their family


We are HUGE cooks, and I absolutely loved getting to work with to show their spices in action! The Butcher's Salt gave our roasted veggies a truly delicious kick! Check them out for the cook in your life!


This is my faaaaavorite time of year because I get the most beautiful cards!! Ok, ok, I know I'm biased ;) but I truly do love receiving them and hang them year-round in my office!
Did I take your photos and you have a spare card to send? I would LOVE it if you dropped one in the mail to me, it would make my day!! ❤️

Three cheers- Kara and Clay are MARRIED and that's a wrap for weddings! And what a wedding to end on... their beautiful celebration at Sylvanside Farm was the perfect blend of elegant and and rustic. I cannot wait to share more of their day, but this sneak peek will have to do for now!
