Washington DC In-Home Family Photographer
Family portrait sessions that kids (and spouses!) love
Outfits? You’ll have access to my online styling service AND style guide. Session prep? I’ve created an entire guide to help get you and your kids ready for photos!
Life is hard, kids are crazy. Let’s embrace it! Your kids might not do exactly what we ask or look directly at the camera. That’s okay!! I’ll provide plenty of direction, fun prompts and silly games to engage your kids and have all of you laughing and playing together.
I want you to walk away from this experience with something you can hold in your hands. Every MCP client will receive a print credit they can use on albums, framed + matted prints or loose prints.

Hey there, I’m Mary Catherine! I’m a family, newborn and maternity photographer with 12+ years of experience based in Washington, DC and Northern Virginia.
If you’re looking for an easy and stress-free family photography experience full of REAL smiles, belly laughs and photos so magical you’ll swear I was a wizard, look no further! I’m your gal :)
I am flexible on timing! I like to come when your home is the brightest. That might be the morning if most of your windows face east or the afternoon if most of your windows face west. I also like to make sure I’m not interrupting routine naps and meal times so we can be sure we have happy kids!
There are SO MANY reasons! First and foremost, you don’t have to get yourselves in the car, pack a bag, or sit in traffic. Second, there is no better way to tell the true story of your family than taking photos at home - where you make the majority of your memories and share the most love + laughs. Plus, we can do soooo many activities: fort-building, pancake-making, book-reading, bed-jumping, kitchen-dancing or anything else you love to do as a family!
100% YES! If you have one window that gets decent light, you can have an in-home session. I will ask you to send me photos ahead of time so we can be sure I’m coming when your home is the brightest!
100% YES! Your house does NOT need to be perfect. I am focusing on YOU as a family, not your decorations or any so-called “mess”. Rest assured, you will LOVE your in-home family photos!
I TOTALLY understand that your kids may have a short attention span. If I were asking them to just look at me and smile for 60 minutes, I would absolutely agree with you. But that’s not how I run my sessions! My sessions are a fun, family-bonding experience: one filled with games and laughter and silliness. Your session time will include snack breaks if necessary AND we’ll tag certain family members in and out – so naturally not everyone will be “on” for the full 60-75 minutes
Yes! In addition to your digital files, you will also receive a print credit that you can put towards a purchase from my print shop, which you will be able to access directly from your gallery. (No downloading from your gallery and then having to upload elsewhere!) You will be able to choose from a range of prints in various sizes, framed images, canvas prints, cards, albums and more!
