Molly entered my life as a photographer...invited into the most intimate and sacred of spaces - the labor and birth of our baby girl - longed and hoped and prayed for, for twelve heartbreaking years. That night, she captured moments in time that the soul only glimpses in the blink of an eye...but she got them, somehow magically and miraculously...as if it was her heart taking the photos instead of her hands on the camera. She is a gift to her clients in every sense of the word and her superior talent as a photographer is only the beginning of what she brings to her work. The photos and compiled photo CD with music she created from our daughter's birth is truly one of my most prized possessions. Molly doesn't just capture the moment in a photo, she feels the moment with you and then creates an image that your heart will never forget. - A.B., Virginia

Molly is the best! I cannot believe how beautifully she captured so many moments of my wedding - she was in so many places at once! She's also that unique combination of incredibly professional (still don't know how we got so many group shots - it was like herding cats) and just really lovely to be around. I love all the pictures of my wedding, from the traditional family portraits (that somehow still manage to look un-staged) to the beautifully candid shots of everyone I love. Call Molly - you won't be disappointed. - B.H., Brooklyn, NY

Molly’s photos appear to hang in time — they are a unique moment of connection, of recognition, between photographer and subject. It is as if they are sharing a secret with each other… and consequently, with the viewer. Molly Peterson’s sensitive camera finds the unique beauty and personality of her subjects, be they human or animal. She captures her subjects both as they are and as they would wish to be seen, in the same photo......Her eye, her skill, her taste, her patience to wait for the right moment, and to connect.... - Pamela Hess, Executive Director, Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture


Molly has an amazing gift – she captures expressions and moments that perfectly sum up certain periods in our lives. We love her work so much, she photographs our kids every month and our whole family looks forward to her photos. Everyone has photos of their kids and animals, but for us, Molly’s are special. Our friends agree and constantly ask us to send the latest Molly photos. We can’t possibly recommend her enough! - T.S/Washington, D.C.


My dogs are exceptionally difficult to photograph, very frightened by the eye of the camera. Molly’s infinite patience led to the finest portraits of greyhounds I have ever seen, despite years of being in this breed. – B.K./Castleton, VA


As we started our family photo shoot, we knew having 3 kids under 6 and 3 dogs was going to be a challenge, but we had full confidence in Molly’s ability to capture our best that day. We are so happy with the results and could not have asked for anything more. The pictures Molly took will be ones we treasure forever. – L.C./Flint Hill, VA


She captured our twins perfectly, not only showing their beauty but each individual personality, wow! -C.J. / Woodville,Virginia


Molly is not just a great photographer – she’s a consummate artist. We’ve used her services for multiple occasions – both for personal and professional photographs – and she always surprises and delights with the perfect combination of professionalism coupled with a discerning, uniquely artistic eye. Thanks to her, we have beautiful and lasting memories of many of our beloved animals and events in our lives. And if you’re not comfortable being photographed, Molly will put you at ease and change that forever! -Carole King, Pawgevity Founder, Marshall, Virginia


Molly photographed the birth of our fourth child. She captured the most difficult and the most joyful moments of that day and I am forever grateful. What a gift she has to capture the moment as it happens. Thank you Molly! – E.H./Culpeper, Virginia


My session with Molly is one of the best gifts I’ve ever given myself.  Each one of my horses (and dog) warmed up to her immediately and they seemed to tell her how they would like to be photographed. What I have as a result is a treasure of photographs through which each horse and dog’s personality comes out, as if they are speaking from the page.  I can’t wait for her to come back.  We all love Molly! – M.R./Bethesda, MD
