Thank you for visiting my website!  

I am a lifestyle and family photographer in the Northern Virginia area who specializes in portraiture with a focus on eyes and natural smiles. I am a mother of two awesome redheads who frequently find themselves the subjects of my images. In addition to photography, I am a former college professor, and the current owner and creator of "Acting Out with Professor Toby", where I teach children from preschool through 6th grade techniques for acting, theatre and movement. Photography and teaching go hand and hand for me...I know how to put children, teenagers and parents at ease during a photoshoot, using good old fashion humor and a relaxed yet professional attitude. I believe in letting kids be themselves during a shoot, and allowing the parents to enjoy themselves stress-free, without worrying about every shot or pose. 

Come with smiles and I'll take care of the rest!
