Over the past few months, I’ve had a few days where I’d be home by myself for a few days. One of those days, I decided to stay up late executing a brilliant idea – a DIY backdrop. Three days and two trips to Lowes later, I had what I set out to make. Just a […]

I knew I loved Shannon the day I met her. We connected quickly because we’re both “only children” and both went to JMU! Having been in our community group at church for a couple of years now, I’ve been able to gain her as a friend. Her bubbly personality and her laughter draw you in. She’s […]

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 […]

Although this was my first time doing mini sessions, it most definitely won’t be my last. In fact, I might just plan for two dates next year. It’s just enough time to get a perfect amount of photos without loosing the attention of everyone involved! I had 5 sessions this year with a variety of […]

I just think these two are the sweetest. Ali said over and over again how she was nervous – I hear that and get excited [sorry, Ali!] because that means my clients will trust me to do my job! But honestly, it also means that their session will be amazing. Ali and Mike were so […]

Over the past year, I’ve been able to spend many hours with Janie Medley of Janie Medley Flora Design and The Bride’s Cafe helping with some of her smaller projects. For her 56th birthday, Janie asked if I could take a few portraits for her… just for fun! What a great way to celebrate, I thought! […]

Emily got married this past Saturday at a friend’s estate. Although I wasn’t there to capture her wedding, I did get to photograph her bridal portraits earlier this month! These are some of my favorite photos to take. The confidence and excitement from brides when they get into their wedding dress for the first time […]

It was all girls in the studio this month. I help a few studio sessions and had some amazing women join me! We started each of their sessions with make-up from Emily Hudspeth, and she made the girls look beautiful before they jumped on set. Thanks to these women who spent a few hours with […]

When I started to pursue photography, I wanted to be a studio photographer. I loved the perfection in lighting you could achieve, and I even like spending time in photoshop to really polish off the images. But wedding photography was a challenge and most photographers shot in all natural light, so I dove head first […]
