behind the lens - meet natasha

Let's rewind to 2013, when my hobby was becoming very expensive and my friends were asking me on a regular basis to capture photos of their family. Not to mention, my three boys were also in school full-time. So, what’s a gal to do? Take a leap of faith and open a photography business once and for all, obviously.

Today, as a lifestyle photographer in the D.C. area and Pinehurst, North Carolina, I’m grateful for my clients who allow me to fulfill my passion for making time stand still behind the lens. That way, you can hold every favorite, beautifully chaotic detail close to your heart for years and years to come.

Fun facts...

  1. I’m a fifth generation Washingtonian. I grew up in the city, so it feels good to get back to my roots!
  2. As a fellow mom and former teacher, I consider myself a pro with any age to perfectly capture your family.
  3. I’m a total dreamer and I love all the self-help books I can get my hands on.
  4. Green thumb? YES! Well, my newly developed green thumb came out of 2020 quarantine!
  5. One way I love to relax? With a good Netflix binge.

The NPS Photography Difference

Real Life Over Picture-Perfect


Think your house is too dark or isn’t styled like something out of a magazine? Or you won’t get the perfect picture if everyone isn’t looking directly at the camera?


Well, I’m all about snapping those real life, unscripted, full-of-personality moments in the place you call home over trying to get the perfectly-posed and prop-filled photographs.

Tailored, Relationship-Based Approach


Every family has unique quirks and favorite details to be remembered on camera forever. For that reason, you won’t get a one-size-fits-all session experience with me.


Instead, you’ll quickly realize I’m passionate about building a relationship with you, my friends, to truly provide you with a customized approach that will have you feeling relaxed and ready to book your family’s next milestone moments in front of the camera.

Working Hard for Those Natural Smiles


A camera can inevitably throw off the little ones in your family—no matter if they’re generally shy or the life of the party. But you don’t have to worry one bit about that! I’ll work hard to warm them up to being photographed so I can get those genuine smiles and giggles. They'll forget the camera is even there!
