Each and every family is unique, but something never changes! The drama of course! Each family has drama, and it is simply impossible to get everyone together for a dedicated photography session (or very difficult). So we advise families to take advantage of all the special days, whether this is a new baby, a graduation, an engagement in the family or any other milestone bringing loved ones together. And I promise, we are good secret keepers who have seen it all when it comes to families.
Our passion is to capture and tell your stories, our unique subjects from different cultures, places and peoples, in an artistic manner. Our portraiture offering includes family portraits sessions; reunions and events; maternity sessions; newborn photography; and graduation.
We have completed sessions in almost any nature setting, DC highlight or college campus in the Washington DC Metro Area. Call us and we will share our experience with you. We also offer permitting solutions to our clients for some of our favorite locations, such as the Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Virginia, the Brookside Gardens in Maryland, or the National Arboretum in Washington DC.
For businesses and professionals, we offer professional headshot sessions and we try to make it fun and engaging. We are ferocious planners and we will strive to make your corporate headshot experience as seamless as possible, without interrupting the flow of business. Have a look at our headshots page.
We offer studio sessions for all types of sessions including headshots, and strongly prefer to host the newborn sessions at our studio where we maintain a variety of stage props to make it even more fun. We also welcome parents to bring any props of their choosing to make it even more memorable. Go to our headshots page to watch a short film of an outdoor headshot experience (which will be available again in Spring)!
Shoshana was absolutely a joy to work with. We wanted Christmas Card photos but she captured our family beautifully and we got so much more. I would recommend her to anyone!Jenifer L.
There are few things more important in life than family. Our lives are built from series of moments carrying distinct emotions. These emotions are the real memories that actually fleet over time! As time flies, so do the opportunities to capture such moments, and the last thing you want is to look back and regret not having captured them. I know! There is never enough time to bring everyone together or it’s never perfect! But you have to break the cycle!
The family photos that Shoshana took were everything we had hoped for and far beyond. She did an amazing job finding the perfect locations, lighting and poses. To my surprise, the kids not only cooperated, but they really enjoyed posing thanks to Shoshana keeping them engaged the whole time. The images are now being displayed all over our house and offices. Cannot wait for our next session with her.Verda F.
Below is a wonderful 2-min 4K video of a recent cake smash session! We had to post this video on our website because this was a particularly special session. The dad was so committed to make the best out of this experience that he really went the extra mile to keep his son Ved happy and smiling! Watch until the end to see a 45-second slideshow of the final images from the session. Please remember to toggle your desired resolution (up to 4K) from the gear icon.
My passion is to capture your story, the unique bonds and love between you and your family so that you can enjoy them for years to come.
Shoshana has the talent to authentically portray a professional’s true self. She wanted to learn about me, and the message I wanted to send in my headshot. She came up with the idea to do my professional headshot session in DC during the cherry blossom season and I fell in love with the end product. It was different, artistic and reflected my inner emotional life all at the same time!”Dr. Lori Sen, Dr. of Musical Arts, Singer and Researcher
