Candid, perfectly-imperfect moments are my favorite.

Are they yours?

Hey there.

My name is Denise and I am a Northern VA-based photographer. If you're looking for a history on how I got a camera in my hands, you won't find it here. What I can tell you is that I use my love for photography itself and my whimsical creativity to tell your story, through colorful imagery that hums with life and shows connections.

If you want to get to know ME, then you're in the right place.

Who am I?

*insert long-winded essay* I am very capable of rambling so I'll spare you the long story. My nouns tell you who I am and my verbs tell you how I live my life.
