HI, I’M DARCY
Northern va/ washington dc/ arlington/ alexandria/md photographer.
random moment collector.
Mom of three fun kids and two crazy dogs.
Wife to an amazing guy.
Horrible singer (who still knows all the words to way too many pop songs).
I believe real life is pretty amazing in all its imperfection (and definitely worth remembering)!
I love “messy” photos so much that one of the first photos you’ll see of me (on the right) was taken after my husband won Pieface Showdown (hence the whipped cream all over my face).
I’m not a huge fan of pictures where everyone sits “perfectly” still looking straight at the camera. Instead, my photographs are unique and unscripted - dancing, laughing, running, etc.
Candids are my fave!!

I REALLY LIKE:
Road trips, 1980s teen movies, Alice Munro, margaritas (with salt, of course), campgrounds, comfy grey sweatshirts, "Naive Melody" by the Talking Heads, lilacs, dog walks at dusk, the Neapolitan Novels by Elana Ferrante, my grandmother's old photo albums, hot baths, happy hour, wool socks, sleeping in, iced tea with lemonade, silver hoop earrings, boho shirts (if you can’t already tell from the photos), hugs, tabouli, mixtapes, & decadent desserts.
I DON’t enjoy:
Overpriced wine, mean people, long lines, gardening (luckily my husband loves gardening), not laughing, bedtime, & cleaning bathrooms.
