Hi there! Welcome to the blog, a journal about my couples, my business, and some occasional fun personal things. Stay a while and say hello!

There is nothing like hearing a good love story.  It is truly one of my favorite parts of getting to know other couples – hearing the whole story – from start to finish, of how they met, fell in love, got engaged, and said “I Do”.  I will be the first to admit that I […]

Anybody else agree that this year has been entirely too cold so far?  Yeah, I thought so.  Well, these two braved the cold with me and joined me in Old Town Winchester for a super sweet session!  It was cloudy, cold, and I’m pretty sure a blizzard could have popped up any minute! I met […]

Katie is a fellow photographer in Winchester, Virginia and I was too excited to meet her and her family!  It is so much fun to meet and work with fellow photographers in the area.  Some might think we’re all competitors, but truly we aren’t.  We are all in this together and its so nice to […]

I had the joy of meeting with Sandra and her family for her maternity session at the Third Battle of Winchester Trail.  Little did she know, earlier that day I had received a phone call from her boyfriend to discuss a SURPRISE proposal!!  I was TOO excited for this! This sweet momma was glowing and […]

Snow in November?!  Not something that we see very often around here, but it happened this year and it just so happened to be on Bobbie and Eric’s wedding weekend! These two were married in a beautiful Catholic church surrounded by their closest family and friends.  Even though there was snow on the ground, there […]

From the moment I met Francesca and Marshall at our consultation, I knew their wedding day was going to be one for the books.  They were the absolute sweetest and their love for each other lit up the whole room! This was my first time at Rust Manor House and let’s just say it was […]

I’m not sure what was more beautiful this day – this super sweet, newly engaged couple or the breathtaking scenery at Blue Valley Vineyard and Winery.  I think its safe to say both were equally amazing.  Although, I definitely enjoyed the company of Taylor and Noland and Taylor’s awesome mom who was not only there […]

I first met Morgan and Bryan at their consultation in March.  It seemed like their wedding day was so far away, but it was here before we knew it! Morgan and Bryan were married at a beautiful country club in Gainesville, Virginia.  What seemed like the absolute coldest day in November, turned out to be […]

How sweet is it to gift your wife a photo session for your anniversary even when you really don’t want photos taken yourself?!  That’s exactly what this husband did – maybe with a little bribing from his wife or maybe not 😉 . Regardless, he was a trooper! These two left the kiddos at home […]

This senior session took place at the end of August and this girl was such a natural! We had the best time and shared so many laughs! She brought her mom, sister, and 2 nephews along which made it even more fun! They were there to make her laugh and bring out the best natural […]
