Our family


Hey you,

I'm so glad you're here. My name is Kelly and I have a passion for capturing everyday moments that are, in their own right, unique and special. My partner in crime is my gorgeous husband Jeff. He is extremely gifted in the technicalities of photography and  he has a fabulous eye. We live on the northern tip of beautiful Southern Maryland, in Brandywine, and serve the Washington DC Metro area to include Northern Virginia, Upper Marlboro, Waldorf, Charles, Calvert and St. Mary's Counties.

We have two amazing sons and two troublesome but lovable dogs - all who are weary of being the targets of our cameras - if you look closely in some of the portrait pages you can see them slightly rolling their eyes.

We specialize in capturing sweet, fun, real family moments.  We especially love capturing all the little behind the scene details and 'off camera' interactions. We try to give our clients an experience that brings them closer together as a family. 

We have a charming, rustic, 5 acre outdoor studio that we call Pappy Jack's Giardino (PJG). The name is a combination of my Italian heritage, my parents, and my adopted Godfather. The giardino has areas of light and airy grass lands, golden meadows, grape vines, a small orchard, wooded areas, and many other fun little nooks. We can shoot at our giardino in Brandywine, MD or any location of your choice.  

Jeff is a veteran of the United States Navy. He served for 9 years (NINE!). When he decided to try something different, he just couldn't walk away from service, so he continues to work with the Navy as a civil servant on the Patuxent River Naval Base in Southern Maryland. 

I also work for the federal government in the heart of our nations capital and I am fortunate to have a day job that I love just as much as photography. My work evolves around assisting communities recover from disasters. You can learn more about my work on my  Linkedin Page

If you are interested in having a fun adventure and capturing those sweet, special, magical,  everyday moments, we would love to hear from you.
