At the end of February, I had the joy of meeting with Jennifer and Chad for their super windy, but oh so fun and beautiful maternity session!  We met at Blandy Experimental Farm – the State Arboretum of Virginia. Just a little side note, if you don’t know where to go for your session, go […]

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 […]

This sweet momma was glowing and […]

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!

At the beginning of the summer I had the opportunity to capture this sweet little guy’s 1st birthday photos!  They grow up so fast!  I had first taken his photos back in the fall when he was 7 months old.  It’s amazing how much he has changed since then!  He has turned into quite the […]

Happy Monday! I hope y’all are gearing up for an amazing week.  I know Monday’s can be tough, but look on the bright side.  The sun is actually supposed to shine today!!  Yes, it really does still exist!  I don’t know about you, but I could definitely use some sunshine and a lot of it. […]

Talk about slacking.  It has almost been a month since my last blog post.  It has been quite a crazy month!  I’m certainly not complaining though.  Between getting my photography business up and running full time and chasing around our precious little 10 month old (soon to be 11 month old…cue the tears, both happy […]

The evening was absolutely perfect.  After a week of not so nice weather, this evening was much needed.  The light was perfect and the weather ahmazinggg! These two showed up and […]
