Snow in Washington DC

I got out to DC just in time for their first winter snow! The area was beautiful and we took advantage of being able to hop on the metro to take some great shots. I met an amazing photographer named Stephen L. Miller and had the opportunity to create some photos inspired by his work. Enjoy!

Family Portraits

I had the priviledge of photographing a family with two beautiful children last weekend. Here are a few of the black and white's that I'm really excited about...

All next week I will be visiting my parents and friends in the Northern VA/Washington DC/Annapolis area....I'm sure I'll have some great travel photos to post when I get back in February.
