Hi! I'm Challis Landon,
pronounced like 'Alice' with a Ch), owner of Landon Photo & Design. I'm a DMV Photographer specializing in Family and Elopement photography. My goal is to capture memories and milestones while we have a relaxing adventure. I'm passionate about preserving memories without the stress.  I'm always striving to be one of the DMV's top family photographers, while also maintaining affordable pricing. I believe everyone deserves to have good photos. 

      ABOUT ME

I'm from Idaho, but have lived in Maryland for four years now and I love it! I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, and I love hiking, scuba diving, singing, anything outside, and PHOTOGRAPHY. 

Fun Facts:
-I have 12 houseplants.

-Ice cream is my favorite food.

-I'm a natural redhead and used to hate my hair, but now love it. 
-One of my most embarrassing moments was when I gave a presentation about how music improves academics, but I spelled academic wrong on my poster. Several times.  *facepalm*

-My unique name comes from a small town named Challis in the mountains of Idaho.
Meet the Landon Photo & Design Dream Team! You know me, I’m Challis, AKA mom and photographer. 

My husband, Taylor, is working on a PhD in Economics. He helps me with some of the finance, technology, and marketing sides of the business and is Super Dad when I'm at sessions.

Olivia ("almost 6" years old) says she wants to be a photographer when she grows up and is our resident entertainer. She’s always singing, dancing, or saying “mom, I’m bored, let’s do something fun!”

 Ella (almost 2 yrs old) has the essential role of keeping me on my toes. She wants to do everything big sister is doing and has the most charming mischievous smile. How can you say no to those dimples?

They’re also my main inspiration behind family photography and make my life way more exciting!
