I only lived in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia for one year, but during that year, I was beyond overjoyed to move my studio from NYC and continue my work as a family photographer in Alexandria, Virginia to so many families and their children during that time.

While I no longer live in Old Town and now serve families in Fairfield County Connecticut and the surrounding New York area, I still travel in the Fall to Old Town Alexandria to photograph my past clients as well new families and newborns.

Fall Family Photos in Old Town Alexandria and D.C.

This year, I am making my annual Fall trip back to Old Town Alexandria and Washington D.C to document the new memories of my clients (as their families have grown over the last year!) and will be returning to the historic cobblestoned streets of Wales Alley and Prince Street, along with the gorgeous memorial sites in D.C.
