The Soul of Things

I love this work and I love this restaurant, we’ve been working together for years.   I’ve never shared here because I worried the pictures didn’t “fit.”  I’m a people photographer and this isn’t about people.   I think I’ve been wrong about that. Over the weekend I helped my 10 y/o son clean out his clothing…

Bookin’ in Falls Church, VA

OK, lets do this quick! Wanna get together on Saturday, November 2nd at Cherry Hill Park for a 30 minutes session that is your crew 100%?  I’m running a family picture event there and still have availability for late morning and early sessions afternoon.

Growing Up

Meet Tootie and Poppi!!!!  They’re also known as Polly and Bill and I met them on a recent shoot.  There was a lot to celebrate with big zero birthdays in the fam as well as their 65th wedding anniversary. Each time I meet a couple that has made it to a big milestone in their…
