One of my favorite projects I get to work on every few months is the lookbooks we put together for Bishop Boutique. Not only do they have the most fun shoes and accessories in all of Old Town, but the fabulous ladies there also pull together fabulous fashion all from local boutiques around Old Town Alexandria!
Don’t all these sparkles and glam make you want to run out get shopping for the holidays? Then plan a trip to Paris? …happy shopping!

Every once in a while I get to photograph someone who inspires me and pushes me out of my comfort zone…Miss C was absolutely that for me. We photographed in her stunning DC condo which was a fun change from my usual shoots in the Old Town studio.
She herself is an artist and poet with a passion for empowering women. Here are a just a few of my favorites from our shoot. (as you read you will see poetry that has been curated by Miss C herself especially for these photographs). Isn’t she amazing?

was just practice
all the bodies you’ve ever undressed
and ploughed in to
were preparing you for me.
i don’t mind tasting them in the
memory of your mouth
they were a long hall way
a door half open
a single suit case still on the conveyor belt
was it a long journey?
did it take you long to find me?
you’re here now,
The ever so lovely Miss C.
(who reminds me a whole lot of a movie star whose initials start are A.H. Can you guess?)
After Miss Ana B did a fabulous Lana Del Ray styled look on her, how could we not have a fantastic shoot?
Miss C is a photographer in Maryland and we shot some of these photographs specifically for her brand-spankin-new website!
Definitely go check her out!
I don’t know about you, but this gorgeous girl sure looks good in front of the camera too! :)
Thank you Miss C for giving me the opportunity to photograph you…it was an honor and you were a joy to work with!
