Hi, I’m Joy Rahat, an expert published photographer for headshot and portrait photography. I love working with people from all walks of life and helping them create stunning images that showcase their unique stories. Whether you need a headshot for your business, personal branding, social media, dating profile, or a portrait for your family, your high school senior teens , or yourself, I can help you to achieve your goals.

We Work in the DMV Region

I’m based in Virginia but serve clients throughout the DMV region, including Washington, DC, and Maryland. I have a studio in Ashburn, VA, where I can create beautiful indoor photos with different backgrounds and lighting options. I also love to shoot outdoors, using natural light and scenic locations to enhance my photos. I can travel to your preferred location, whether it’s your home, office, park, or anywhere else that suits your needs.

I’m familiar with the best spots for photography in the DMV area, and I can recommend some places that match your vision and style. Some of my favorite locations include:

  • The National Mall in Washington, DC, where you can pose with iconic monuments and buildings as your backdrop.
  • The Great Falls Park in Virginia and Maryland is where you can enjoy stunning views of the Potomac River and its rapids.
  • The Old Town Alexandria in Virginia is where you can explore the historic streets and buildings with a charming atmosphere.
  • The Brookside Gardens in Maryland is where you can immerse yourself in nature and flowers.
  • The Georgetown Waterfront Park in Washington, DC, is where you can relax by the Potomac River and enjoy the urban vibe

Additionally, if you want to know more about the DMV’s iconic landmarks, check out this blog post.

Of course, these are just some examples of the many extraordinary locations the DMV region offers. I’m always open to new ideas and suggestions from my clients, so feel free to share your thoughts with me.
