Meet sweet Silas

Even though I have three of my own, I always forget how sweet it feels to hold a newborn and how tiny they are.

Enjoy!

I just discovered a new review

It is always such a delightful surprise to get a review when not expected.
Thank you Natalie, for your kind words.
DAP 5558 2 I just discovered a new review

“This review won’t be very different from the other reviews already posted, because Dominique is an absolutely fantastic photographer, no question about it.

I found her through my venue’s preferred vendor list, and I do not at all regret our decision to hire her! From the beginning, she was so professional and responsive, which wasn’t exactly easy since during most of my wedding planning, I lived in France and she was in Charlottesville. We still were able to keep in touch by email and phone calls, and we even got to spend time with her face-to-face during a summer trip she took to Lyon, France (where we were living at the time). As the date came closer, she was in touch to talk about group photos and all the other little details. She was so genuinely interested in and excited for our wedding, I could just tell in her voice. She has such a great eye for detail and knows where she needs to be to get the best shots. And the funny thing was that during the ceremony and reception, I didn’t even see her! She is just really great at blending in and getting those candid moments caught on camera when you don’t even know she’s there.

Something else about Dominique’s services that really added value for us was that she is bilingual French/English and was able to communicate with my French in-laws about where she wanted them to be for photos in French so they could understand. This was so helpful because I didn’t have to worry about interpreting for them at all.

And of course…the photos. I can’t say enough about them. People were moved to tears by looking at them, I’m serious. She let me know the preview photos were up on her blog a week after the wedding and I can’t wait to get the rest!

I recommend her wholeheartedly!
Natalie”

A lovely Winter wedding at the Clifton Inn

The Clifton Inn is such a romantic venue for a wedding. It is rare when I photograph weddings in the winter, but what a treat it was. Natalie and Lionel used to live in my home town of Lyon, France and I had the pleasure to meet them for a drink last summer during my visit.

It was so fun to start the year working with Amy from Blue Ridge floral, dj tobler

More family portraits with a dog

I love coming up to Northern Virginia to photograph this family. It has been four years and it is so wonderful to see a little baby becoming a little girl with lots of personality! This year, it has been so much fun to have the furry friends included in so many of the family portraits.
