the Sisul family | Washington, DC

I spent half the day with Kristina and her beautiful family. We both have three boys and I loved seeing the similarities of our families. But, we were also very different and that's the best part. I've never photographed a family who was exactly the same. I spend a great deal of time and attention to make sure that your individuality is reflected in your session and the final images. Each experience is completely unique which makes the photos so much more special.

This is my first fusion slideshow  and I loved being able to bring their photos to life with some video snippets from our time together. It was a pleasure to capture the essence of this wonderful family. 

I’m tearing up! I’ve now watched this a million times! You captured each one of us perfectly. I can’t thank you enough. These moments are priceless.

dad time | documenting the joy of fatherhood

Photographing my husband with our kids has been my absolute favorite thing in my journey as a photographer. Documenting our lives and their bond has been extremely fulfilling for me. I love watching my husband parent, he can be strong and stern, but also heartfelt and gentle. 

In honor of father's day, I have compiled a few of my own personal  favorite fatherhood images of my husband and boys (and included a few of my clients as well).

I love the laid-back approach that comes with photographing fathers with their children especially during documentary/storytelling sessions. Often, they are so relived that they don't have to smile at the camera for an hour. Dads feel more comfortable in front of the camera when they are doing something( the whole “standing there” that is a bit unnerving and uncomfortable). 

This weekend document, the dads in you life as they are. Think of an activity dad can focus on versus the camera.  It can be something as simple as a conversation or a hug. You will not regret the results.
