senior pictures

Such a fresh, all American look!  Kate is a gorgeous, athletic Broad Run high school senior with a bright future ahead of her. We met at one of my favorite places in Lansdowne to take her senior pictures. It looks beautiful any time of year.


Kate loves her little sis, Allie. They get along so well!

TAYLOR Class of 2012 | Goodhart Photography Loudoun County Senior Pictures


This is Taylor, a senior at Dominion High School. She came in for a senior yearbook picture and additional portraits taken both in the studio and on location. I was thrilled she brought in her varsity lacrosse shirt and stick! After a few portraits in the studio, we went on location where she wore a super cute purple blouse that accentuated her eyes. The rest of your pictures will be ready in a week! Enjoy your sneak peek.



Are you class of 2012? If you'd like to have a custom portrait photography session for your senior pictures, call Angela at 703 431- 3508 to see just how affordable senior pictures can be! Visit my website, for more information.

ISO Photography Model | Goodhart Photography, Loudoun County and Northern Virginia High School Senior Pictures


A couple of months ago I went to a fantastic Kirk VoClain training workshop. One of the coolest things he did was underwater shots with a senior in a prom dress and ever since I have been dying to do something similar. Since I don't have a pool in my yard, I purchased a kiddie pool which I think could work. But I need a model to help test it out! Models get 3-5 free pictures for FB and discretely logo'd files for printing.

If you are a high school student and willing to wear a prom dress in a kiddie pool, e-mail me at goodhart photography @ (no spaces) and I'll send you the parental consent form and a few possible dates for the shoot!

VACATION | Goodhart Photography, Loudoun County and Northern Virginia Family Portraits


A few Downeast Maine family vacation pictures! I was so glad to be out of Loudoun County for the record heat wave....






It was wonderful R & R, but now I'm ready to get back to work! Check out my website and consider me for your senior pictures or family portraits!

WHY | Goodhart Photography


Life can be so unfair and full of terrible questions, like why does a mother die when she is in the prime of her life? I don't know the answer, and it is heartbreaking that some kids face that question. And yet, I am awed by the human spirit, and how people can and do go on in spite of such unspeakable loss. Life is wild and unpredictable, and yet it is beautiful and tender -- the curve of a baby's foot, a dew-covered spider's web, a single rosebud, the memory of a mother's embrace. May you find beauty, and comfort in that beauty, wherever life takes you. Peace Be with You.

HAYLEY - CLASS OF 2011 | Goodhart Photography, Northern Virginia and Loudoun County Senior Pictures


Hayley is off to college in a few days, but she stopped by to have a few formal drape portraits taken. She wasn't completely satisfied with the senior pictures that the school photographer took, and it is your senior year, right, so shouldn't you love your pictures??

From now through September 30th, I am offering high school seniors a chance to experience custom photography for themselves! For just $99 plus VA sales tax, you get a senior yearbook session with drape (I have the drape, but sorry guys,you'll have to rent your own tux), 5-10 proofs to choose from, and a high resolution digital file of your favorite image. You can make prints for relatives, use the image for graduation cards, AND submit the image to your yearbook (although keep in mind that some schools, such as Dominion High School, charge students a $50 processing fee if you use an outside photographer).


My goal at Goodhart Photography is to make sure you LOVE your pictures! This is a very special time of life and I think all seniors deserve beautiful portraits, which is why I am offering this special deal through September 2011.

And, for an additional $45 we can go on location and capture your own unique spirit -- a savings of $30 on our regular one hour senior session.


And for my parting shot, one of my favorite images, although it isn't a very traditional drape portrait. For some reason, Hayley reminds me of Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" -- even though Hayley isn't wearing a droopy earring and her lips aren't parted. But she is certainly as beautiful as Vermeer's subject!


So please check out my website and find me on FACEBOOK and then give me a call 703-431 - 3508 to schedule your appointment!
