Intro to Photography Workshop Announced! March 16th

Wahoo!  It’s been far too long since my schedule has allowed me to hold a workshop, but low and behold, we have a date!

When : Sunday, March 16th 11am- 3ish

Where: my house in Northeast DC

The what: this is an intro to photography workshop.  you’ll learn the basics of exposure (shutter speed, aperture, ISO) and how each setting affects image quality and creative decision making.  i have written material and discussion and time for practice!  the workshop is limited to FOUR people.

You: beginner!  this is NOT a workshop on wedding photography or a workshop for anyone already employed in the biz.  If you’ve already had classes in the past but need a refresher, we can set something up privately.

What you need: a digital SLR with interchangeable lenses.  A zoom is fine, but you will also need what’s called a “prime” or “fixed focal length” lens.  not sure what that is?  no worries, we’ll talk and i’ll help you pick up the right lens and then during the workshop i’ll help you learn more about all of the funky numbers written on the sides of your equipment.


A little more info is located on my workshop page, but if you have any questions and would like to know if this is for you, please fill out the contact form and we’ll chat.

I look forward to hearing from you!



Erin + Joshua :: A Georgetown Engagement Session

Erin and Joshua can LAUGH!  and laugh and laugh!  I was smiling back at my  computer screen and giggling as I was editing their photos.  I had so much fun with them on this gorgeous day and can’t wait for their wedding!  Enjoy the sneak peek!

Fundraiser for the victims of Hurricane Sandy


We’ve all seen the images.  It’s like something out of a movie, except that it’s not.  It’s going to take resources to get folks out of immediate danger and even more to help them rebuild.  Right now they need money.  Now through November 15th I will donate a portion of ALL PRINT SALES from EVERY SINGLE EVENT I’VE EVER SHOT to the Red Cross.  I’d like to extend this but I will be unavailable for some time mid November and unable to handle editing orders, but let’s see how this plays out.

Get ready for the holidays now and help those in need! 4×6′s and  5×7′s will ship immediately.  Larger sizes will undergo further editing and will take a few extra days.  You can also download images for facebook right away. If you have any questions or would like any custom sizes or canvases, please don’t hesitate to ask!!
