Bookin’ in Arlington

I follow #lifestylefamilyphotography just to know what its even about these days.  To me, its going where a family goes and documenting what a family does.  About 35% of the time that’s what I see tagged and its amazing.  The extaordinary ordinary revealed. The other 65% feels…different.  Often I see a momma in a flowing…

Coming Back to RVA

Pets are welcome, props are welcome: you do you, I’ve got…

Boundaries

Arbus is no fan of wash day.   This is a snippet from the weekend, my son at the ready with the hose and spraying his father mostly.  Arbus gave me her brave smile which eventually gave way to the, “help me momma!/clubbed baby seal” face. Its time to admit to some of the lies I’ve…
