"She captured some special photos that my husband and I will cherish forever."

My family of 3 had a really great experience working with Christine for our fall mini session! Her work is beautiful and she captured some special photos of my 3 month old son that my husband and I will cherish forever. Christine was even prepared for littles ones and had a fun lady bug toy to go around her camera lens which I think helped get my son’s attention for some pictures. We would definitely like to work with her again and will be recommending to friends!

"I appreciated her direction and attention to detail."

I worked with Christine for our maternity + Christmas card photos — she’s was fabulous! Super responsive, timely, and worked fast onsite! I appreciated her direction and attention to detail. When she delivered the photos, we were both so excited! They were all so beautifully captured. We would recommend Christine to anyone! Hope to work with her again in the future.

"Her great gift as a photographer is making you feel comfortable in your own skin."

Christine has done some professional photo shoots for me and taken plenty of casual photos as well! Her great gift as a photographer is making you feel comfortable in your own skin. I’m not natural at posing for the camera, but she is so supportive and excited, it’s easy to lighten up and feel confident! Her pictures are amazing and they’re the only ones I use for professional headshots and resumes.

Over 10 years of experience as a Northern Virginia Family Photographer

After moving to Purcellville, Virginia for college in 2012, I knew Northern Virginia was my new home sweet home. Since then, I’ve spent hours upon hours exploring the area, discovering (in my humble opinion) the best photoshoot locations in Loudoun County. Here are just three of my favorite spots: Morven Park, Red Rock Wilderness Overlook Regional Park, and Snickers Gap Christmas Tree Farm.
