I'm Tina - a professional newborn and baby photographer in the Washington, D.C. metro area. I am also a mom to two amazing kids, wife to my college sweetheart, a dog mom, a coffee addict, a cold-weather devotee, and a Springsteen superfan.
I am originally from Pennsylvania, but I have lived in the D.C. area -- in D.C. itself, in the Virginia suburbs, and in the Maryland suburbs -- for more than 20 years now! I fell in love with this area when I moved here to attend law school, and I just never left. (I worked as an attorney practicing labor and employment law for more than a decade prior to launching my photography career.)
I have loved photography for as long as I can remember. As my family and friends can attest, I have nearly always had a camera in my hand and have been obsessed with documenting memories. My passion for photography intensified, however, when my children were born. I was so in awe of their chubby little hands and feet, their adorable expressions, and their love for each other; I wanted to document every detail, and every moment -- to freeze the time that seemed to be speeding by in a blur.
Several years - and countless books, classes, workshops, and practice hours -- later, I decided that I wanted to help other parents preserve their memories of their little ones' first weeks/months. I have now photographed hundreds of babies in the last nine years since I opened my studio, and I am so grateful to all of the families who have allowed me to share in their joy-filled milestones!
