A few weeks ago I was able to meet Shayla and her mom at the beautiful State Arboretum of Virginia.  This is one of those locations that you simply can’t go wrong with.  Everywhere you turn there are beautiful trees, flowers, rolling hills, fields, and more! Shayla is a 2019 senior and so ready to […]

I just can’t get enough of this gorgeous, spring inspired styled shoot at Walker’s Overlook!  With a surprise snowfall the night before, it quickly turned into a “Dreaming of Spring” shoot, but it was still perfection. Every aspect of the shoot was thoughtfully put into place by the lovely Mimi Perez of A Bride’s BFF.  […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I was too excited when Ashley contacted me about scheduling her and Dennis’ engagement session.  I was especially excited when she told me the location they wanted to go to!  It was a place I had never been before, and I am always up for checking out new places. It was the perfect little spot […]
