Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect from a Loudoun Life Photo shoot?

The goal with each Loudoun Life Photo shoot is for it to never feel like a photo shoot at all. You and your kids should be living your normal life- so that means if your family normally lounges around in pajamas while eating pancakes, then that’s what we’re going to do. Everything about your home should be as it normally is. It should feel as normal as possible for your children so that we can focus on capturing those genuine, beautiful interactions.

What activities should we do during the shoot?

Activities that are normal for your family but also interactive. So if you guys play UNO then let’s play UNO!

What am I supposed to do during the shoot?

BE PRESENT! Enjoy your kids and don’t be on your phone :-).


So you’re a stranger and you’re just gonna come hang out and take pictures of me and my family?

You got that right! Remember, I’m a RN by trade and have several years of experience making people feel comfortable in the Emergency Room. Comfort and ease was key for all ages in the ER.

Do you only shoot in Loudoun county?

We serve the Northern Virginia, Washington D.C. and Maryland region. We love Loudoun County and its culture to keeping life revolving around family.

What type of gear do you use?

I use a slew of professional grade lenses and cameras. I typically shoot with two cameras at a time – one with a wide angle lens and one with a zoomed in lens to ensure I always get the right shot.


How will you know how to shoot my family?

I’ve been shooting for a long time and I have a knack for reading people. This along with the fact that I will learn about you and your family before the shoot via phone calls and a questionnaire to learn more about your family. This gives me an idea as to what may make each individual comfortable.

What should I wear?

Whatever you would normally wear if a close friend was coming over. Be comfortable :-).
