Reston photographer Jennifer Heffner is taking advantage of Lake Anne Plaza’s loft-like spaces with natural light.
She recently opened a third-floor studio space at 1612 Washington Plaza North, above the Lake Anne Coffee House, which is undergoing renovation.
Heffner, a former White House photographer and photo editor, has been operating a studio, Vita Images, out of her Reston home the last several years. When a space became available at Lake Anne, she said it was a great chance to get her business into community space.
“I have always loved Lake Anne,” said Heffner. “I had been looking for studio space for a few years. This one was love at first site. There is beautiful natural light, which is perfect for portraiture.”
Heffner snaps business headshots and other studio photos in the new space, but also specializes in shooting subjects out in the natural Reston environment, as well as corporate, editorial and travel photography.
“Lake Anne is a great backdrop,” she said, pointing out many family and engagement photos she has taken around Reston.
Heffner said she plans a grand opening celebration next month. Meanwhile, she is available by appointment at [email protected] or 202-630-8238.
