Meet Sally


I love pictures and I love stories. Before I could walk I gazed endlessly at glossy photos in my mother’s magazines. I created chalk drawings on my walls, on the closet door. I decorated the sidewalks and trees in the front yard with my paint splashes. (Not all the neighbors appreciated my decoration style.) When my family lived in Japan I’d pose my younger sister all over the neighborhood to illustrate life there.

I need to create. I need to tell stories, so it only seemed natural that I’d end up going to art school to study photography. But then I took a job as a graphic designer. It wasn’t quite right; I needed something more … something with a real story, real life.

I returned to my first love–images and stories documenting real life. Families have memories to pass on. Graduates have milestones to mark. Couples have romantic tales to tell. Babies have fleeting moments to cherish.

I love to tell stories. Let me reveal yours through artful images, through the art of your real life.

    megan - Hi Sally

    I was looking into getting photos taken of my 9 month old son (before he starts crawling and get more teeth than just his 2!!!). We live in Logan Circle in DC.

    I was thinking of a autums/pumpkin/leaves type of theme (I know…not very original but I can’t resist 🙂 )

    Please let me know if you have any availability, and what the prices would be.

    Carolina - Hi Sally, I just messaged you on facebook and look forward to hearing from you soon. I am interested in getting a photo session for my son (15 months old) and husband for fall/winter pics. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan, so sadly I will not be a part of the pics, but look forward to seeing the pictures of my two handsome men.
