DC newborn & family photographer

Have you ever thought that newborn or family photography wasn't for you? I might be your photographer! I'll document your family spending time together at home or anywhere your life is happening.


This is ordinary life but these are not ordinary family photos. These are extraordinary moments lived together.

3 reasons to choose relaxed, candid newborn & family photos

3 reasons to choose relaxed, candid newborn & family photos

1.). No more worrying about outfits, weather or bribes for good behavior (Phew!)

2.) We do things everyone enjoys so no more complaining on picture day (not even from your partner!)

3.) You'll stay in the picture.
Because moms often document their families, we get left out of the story. We can change this together.

it can be different

As the mom of a teen, I know how important early family photos will be.

Living in Northern Virginia, I feel the squeeze of our fast-paced life and know how precious your weekends are - how there is never enough free time together.

Can we multitask? What if you could spend time doing what you love most with your family while I capture those moments?

And what if I helped you get these photos off your phone and on display in a way that empowers you and your kids as they grow?

I've worked with Mel on family photos for several years and have been 110% happy with the results. She has a beautiful way of capturing authentic personalities and relationships. She is so easy to work with and has a great rapport with kids. She is a true talent and year after year, I am blown away by the photos! I highly recommend her.
