I’m a lifestyle photographer specializing in film imagery that uniquely evokes the joy and magic of life.
Because you only live this moment once.
WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING FOR AUTHENTIC MOMENTS, THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
The beauty of at-home sessions with AFP is that you’re already in your element. Your favorite moments in your every day take place right here. We start at your house, finding the best spots in your outdoor spaces to capture what makes your family unique. If after a bit we want to go a little further a field, I’m down for going to the park around the corner or riding some bikes on the sidewalk! In the end, my goal is to capture your family in context – because when a place has meaning for you, it tells part of the story in a way that generic parks or other places just can’t.
Over the course of the session, we’ll do everything from crazy games to intimate cuddles, the whole chaotic gang together, smaller groups, and individual portraits. If your family has a special thing you love to do, let’s capture it! But don’t worry about figuring out what to make happen.
I take the time to truly get to know you in order to capture the moments that mean the most to you. Sessions are tender, wild, loving, silly, and above all, authentic.
The StudyPro is an executive function and study skills center. It was created to fill a gap in the world of student learning. Seeing that many students were smart but struggling to manage the “process” of school, they wanted to build a place where students gained mastery of the skills that were expected, but not fully taught in school. While tutoring support was readily available for kids who struggled with “content”, nowhere existed that focused exclusively on building competency in “Executive Function” skills such as time management, planning, and organization.
The StudyPro offers study skills courses, 1:1 coaching, and a “coached” homework center to practice using study skills on “real work”. We know that no single approach is right for every individual, so we start by meeting the student where they are and focus on fostering their strengths, vs. just remediating differences.

Hello DC Area Moms! My name is Claudia Smistek and I am a research assistant at BL2. We are doing a research project on how children learn over time. Here is more information listed below if you are interested:
Are you interested in how children learn? We at the Brain and Language Center for Neuroimaging (BL2) are too! We are part of the National Science Foundation and Gallaudet University’s Science of Learning Center, Visual Language and Visual Learning (VL2). In our BL2 Center, we are conducting a study on how [deaf and hearing children] learn, particularly in the areas of language, reading, and other higher cognitive functions (attention and emotion).
We are recruiting children [that have no hearing loss, use hearing aids, or use cochlear implants]. [Both monolingual (English) or bilingual (English/ASL) who will soon enter the 1st grade are invited to participate]. We will test them before and after their first year of primary schooling. Our studies are designed to be a fun opportunity for both parents and children.
Children will play science games while we measure their brain activity using harmless light (safe with hearing aids and cochlear implants) and their temperature using a thermal camera (touchless). This study has been reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board at Gallaudet University. Participation is entirely voluntary.
We will pay $20 per hour for your participation and travel to/from our BL2 Center. Children will also receive a small toy!
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to call our lab at (202) 618-6808 or email us at [email protected] if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.

Hi! I am Marissa Lifshen Steinberger, a certified leadership coach and facilitator with an advanced degree in counseling and a deep commitment to equity and inclusion. I am also the mom of two young boys navigating the challenges of work/life balance. I founded One Eleven Leadership to meet a need I have seen from 20 years spent in the education and non-profit sectors: talented and passionate individuals at all levels of the organization feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and uncertain often leading to dissatisfaction, low morale, and burnout. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. My hope is that our work together will provide the support you need to move forward with more confidence, clarity, and contentment for yourself, your family, your team, and the communities you serve.
You won’t see any pre-set packages or flashy sales pitches on my website because that’s just not who I am. I would rather have a conversation, understand your unique needs, answer your questions, and make sure we are a good fit, which is why I offer a complimentary 30-minute consultation.
