I love using my skills as a professional photographer to create sumptuous personal art portraits and home decor. With my beginnings in the field of art and design, my strength lies in the way I see. Other people don’t see what I see. It allows me to take my clients through a process of exploration of what’s important to them and turn that into unique photographic art. This creative approach allows you to be part of the process of creating your for your business photography needs or for home decor.
My dedication to my craft is unparalleled. Over the years I have gained valuable experience as a photographer and artist. I’ve developed a unique style all my own that is showcased in my work. I have mastered the art of portraiture. My calm and collected rapport puts everyone at ease and takes the stress of a session out of the process. My love of working with all kinds of people has taken my photography to another level, and that dedication and attention is showcased time and again.
Finding an exceptional photographer that caters to your sensibilities is not an easy task. Finding one that is an artist at heart is next to impossible. With me you get both.
As a professional portrait photographer, I’ll work closely with you to make sure your portrait reflects who you are. We’ll discuss your brand or style and what message you want to present. I’ll help with the clothing, background and posing. I start the photography session by letting you know what I’m doing. Then, I help you with what you are doing in front of the camera. I’ll use lighting to maximize your best features and minimize the ones we don’t want people to notice. After we are done in the session I will use my skills to enhance and refine your image to make sure you look your best.
I guarantee that my clients will be thrilled with their images–whether they are wall portraits, form a beautiful book, grace the cover of a book or they are used on your web site.
I truly want to create the finest portraiture for you. I ofer a 100% you will be “thrilled” guarantee. All of my clients are very happy, but if for some reason we need to redo something, I will make it right.
I’m also one of the few certified professional photographers in the Maryland and Washington DC metro area. I have been a Certified Professional Photographer for twenty years. Please click the link to find out more about Why hire a CPP.

“My many loves include family, beautiful design, cooking, reading, organic living and art, but most of all I love seeing the look on our client’s faces when they receive stunning images of the people they love.”
Carl has a background in corporate management and computers, Carl joined the studio about 10 years ago as the photography world really started going digital. He loves to delve into the computer side of the business, and all that boring, but oh so necessary production and accounting stuff.
“Since joining the studio I have learned a great deal about the art of photography. I have come to respect the technical skill, mastery of light and creative vision of Barbara and her ability to capture the essence of her subject. It is a privilege for me to support our goal of providing intimate personal art for our clients.”
