Hi! I'm Natalie, a personal brand photographer living in Washington DC! Originally from Idaho, I have always loved capturing the beauty and nature of my surroundings, and have a deep love for drawing out someone's unique essence through portrait photography!
We live in a world where authenticity matters more than ever, and being able to show who we really are as an entrepreneur, personality and human being is essential to connecting with others & attracting our tribe!
I am here to help you express yourself as the genuine, beautiful and compelling individual that you are! I want to capture the real you, the person behind the brand, personality and business. To help you tell your story and bring your vision to life! I want to empower you and give you the confidence to go out into the world feeling proud of who you are and what you create!
"Natalie is a warm, joyful soul whose smile will put you at ease from the second you meet. This photographer works with the true “you” behind your seeming character and body, which is evident in the childlike smiles and gleaming eyes of those she works with. Thank you so much Natalie for reminding me of my inner beauty and helping me remember the real, pure me, untainted by the world. Whether you are looking for a professional or more of a personal/creative shoot, you will leave with a lightness in your heart. Connecting with Natalie goes beyond the lens into a space where magic happens. If you are looking for an open, creative, and caring photographer, look no further…"
"During our sessions, Natalie always makes me feel so comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, and she truly listens to what is most important to me. As someone who tends to freeze up a little bit in front of the camera, I am always so thankful that Natalie is also skilled at directing my poses so that the photos look relaxed and natural. When I’ve received my photos back, I’m always left speechless at how stunning each and every picture comes out! Thank you Natalie!"
"How do I explain this other than, the best photoshoot I’ve ever done! I’m in awe of Natalie’s talent & passion for photography. So many great ideas & she created such a fun environment in the process! Looking forward to my next shoot with the one & only Natalie Estess!"
