It’s been just two and a half weeks since we were in St. John and I MISS IT like crazy. Of course I miss the beaches and the daily roadside smoothies, but more than that I miss the lifestyle. You wake up, you go out and do something active. In the months leading up to […]

What a whirlwind it’s been since I announced our move. I’ve felt like Mrs. Hughes in Downton Abby – making sure this house was in tip-top shape for photos and listing. A friend who also had her house on the market said it best, “It’s hard to live in perfection!” Amen. But I have to […]

I try to get photographed at least once a year to remind myself what it’s like. I find I can better relate to my clients if I, too, have a “What should I wear” crisis, and a, “I’m so nervous!” chat with my husband before the session. For our 5 year anniversary, I wanted this […]

Chad came home one day in October and asked if I wanted to move to Lynchburg Virginia. He’d been approached about a possible job, and I starred wide-eyed back at him and formulated my response. No offense to any Lynchburg locals, but I’m a beach fan. Moving 2 hours further away from the beach seemed […]

The sliding doors at the airport opened and cool air hit my face. As a gentle reminder that, “You’re not on Maui anymore,” I breathed in the smell of crunchy leaves instead of the warm, sweet, floral air. I know it’s not my state and, most likely, I’ll never live there, but my heart aches […]

Having JUST relaunched my website, I’m pretty excited to see that there are a few new faces visiting the blog! And sometimes it’s fun to be able to connect with people on a light and wacky level and introduce myself to people who may not know me. It’s helpful to know that the people we […]

After a whirlwind of a week, I’m back to blogging! I’m currently coming off of a really fun wedding weekend, but before that, I was in Corolla, NC with some amazing people. This crowd means so much to me, and I’m really excited we were all able to spend some time together. Time at the […]

I did it! I did it! I did it! I completed the Whole30! This is my success story. I first heard of the Whole30 from another wedding photographer, Lucy O Photo. I met her when I lived in Charlottesville and followed her journey on instagram. Then I put it out of my mind. Then a good […]

Ever since high school I’ve been a little obsessed with surf culture. I even subscribed to Surfer for a while. Well, the truth is, I don’t actually surf. But I just love the fashion, the music, the vibes… When you hear people talking about it, there is just so much respect and peace in their […]

DAY 15 OF 30. I really didn’t think I’d get to this point. I actually was pretty sure I’d have failed by now. But the last few pages of, “It Starts With Food,” really nailed this into my head: THIS IS NOT HARD. I’ve said, “This is so hard!” a few times these last 15 […]
