I truly love documenting families in their homes as a family photographer in DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland. I believe it is so important to freeze these fast fleeting moments in time. For us, and for our children. I also believe that children (and husbands!) are most comfortable in their own spaces.
Whose home is?! I’m very lucky in that I’ve got to shoot in some beautiful homes in the DC Metro area over the years, but that’s not all of my clients’ reality. I will work with whatever home you have to create gorgeous memories that will remind you of this time, regardless of whether your house is ‘magazine worthy’ or not.
All I need is a good window or two and I’ll give you memories that you didn’t even know you needed. Let’s create stunning, stylish, joy-filled images of your family in your own special place.
I would love to connect with you to create beautiful portraits in the comfort of your home that capture your family’s story for a lifetime.
“Our favorite part of working with Tonya is her experience, creativity and relaxed spirit. As all of us parents know, it’s really difficult for toddlers to sit still and pose, yet Tonya has the gift to click at just the right time to produce some facial expressions we didn’t even notice on Emily before. She just makes it happen, we can’t even explain it, Tonya is the kid-whisperer!” – Peggy R.
“There are no words to describe Tonya. From the moment she walked in our door, we felt like we’d known her for years. She put us at ease with her professionalism and warm personality. As a mom herself, she knew exactly what to do with our newborn —- soothing, maneuvering, etc. Tonya, got right to work. Looking for the best lighting and getting to know our little girl. She came with all the swaddles and bows and props. She spent almost 2 hours with us capturing our little girl by herself, with mom and with dad. The time with her flew by! When the pictures came in, I couldn’t help but cry. She captured our little ones personality and cuteness perfectly. The lighting, warmth, quality, variety of pics, and overall outcome was far more than we expected. Can’t wait to use Tonya for our littles girls 1st birthday!” – Lindsay C.
