I’m dedicated to listening, to making a difference, and to reminding people that their story matters.
Whether it's a family portrait session, newborn session or maternity session, perfection is not needed.
Special moments and stories are in the imperfect moments!
I’m a Northern Virginia family photographer and filmmaker for remarkable families, just like you. I create candid family photos, capturing the joy in each moment.
Your family photo session will be fun and relaxed, with lots of laughter along the way. As a parent, I understand what it’s like to have kids, and to have a busy life.
Jenny you captured our family and our girls so perfectly. The light! The colors! The flowers! Our sweet girls! Thanks to you we will always have these memories. I just can’t. I have no more words. — Kelly S.
“I. am. speechless. And crying all over again."
"She arrived on time and was very kind and patient throughout the entire session. I have three very active boys and she worked very well with them, capturing great shots while allowing my boys to be themselves. If you are looking for a professional photographer, look no more. She is the one!" — Karla S.
"I LOVE that the moments she captures on camera are a natural representation of the personalities of her clients. Not one photo looks forced. She was so kind, professional, and communicative throughout the entire process... After the session ended, I heard my husband say: That was actually a lot of fun! This is a sentence I never thought I'd hear after a family photo session! ..." — Mindy P.

three: the fun
My sessions are relaxed and fun. For sessions with kids, relax, I've seen it all. They don't have to be perfect. I focus on keeping you moving, connected, and capturing the best of where you are. I will guide you and provide prompts that will be fun and natural. Lots of snuggles, eskimo kisses, whispering secrets, telling jokes, and exploring. You'll be surprised at the special moments I'm able to capture.
I share with you my favorite locations and we select what's perfect for you. If we are doing an in-home session, I give you the details on how to prepare. I share with you my client prep guide that is filled with all of the tips and tricks I have learned over the years to help you look and feel your best at your session. I’ve pulled together all the info that you need at your fingertips - from what to wear to managing your kiddos energy. Every family will have access to my prep guide upon booking.
