Prom 2016: Old Town Alexandria Senior Photographer

One high school student graduating and one getting ready for senior year.  I couldn't be a bigger fan of these two.

We headed to Old Town, Alexandria pre-prom and met at the Carlyle House.  The formal gardens, gazebo and bricks always make me happy - I use them to create some of my favorite images.  When Jess and I first started talking about a prom session, the shot above was the shot I envisioned and I just had to cross my fingers that the balcony at Carlyle House would be open!

After weeks of rain and at times a questionable forecast, the weather was beautiful (if not a little toasty) and I'm so glad I got to capture this fun high school milestone!

My schedule is filling up so call me or


ASAP to get on the 2016 calendar!

Looking Ahead: 2016.

Along with my regular family, child, and senior portrait sessions, here are a few special sessions I'll be offering on a limited basis this spring:

* SNOWY senior portrait sessions - if you are interested, contact me ASAP because this would be based on having some snowy weekends in January or February. (Or March? It could happen.)

* Maternity! I have two early 2016 maternity sessions available for February-April. If you're expecting during that time, give me a call.

* Finally, it's been too long since I've done an adoption homecoming. If you know someone in Northern VA who is bringing home their baby via adoption in early 2016, contact me.

Yesterday, I spent time in Alexandria with a brother and sister who happen to be super good looking and great kids young adults.  Along with senior portraits for big brother, we got some sibling shots and individual photos of younger sister.

Senior sessions for the class of 2016 are booking now, with availability starting the weekend of June 13.  Rates will increase for anything booked after the start of the school year, so take advantage of the great deal now!

Check out the full session, along with the bonus prom session here.  You can show these good looking kids some love on Facebook right here.
