Welcome! I am Molly, a natural-light photographer based in Northern Virginia. My passion for photographing people really took off when I got my first DSLR camera in 2007. My daughter was about six months old, and the truth of the cliché "it goes by so fast" was setting in. I knew that I had to capture her story - not just the big occasions - but the little, every day moments that would make up our life together. This led me away from more formal, posed pictures and more toward photographing with the eye of a storyteller.
With the arrival of my son and another daughter, my style of photography evolved along with their different personalities and ever-changing relationships. My philosophy is that a great portrait does not illustrate perfection; it reveals a glimpse into the human spirit, telling a story we can connect with in a single moment.
I love giving families beautiful, lasting images to display, hold on to, and pass down to the next generation. Quality portraits are an investment for now and the future, and I would be honored to capture your story.
