One of my all time favorite locations for a Williamsburg, Virginia engagement sessions is the Colonial Parkway. As someone who is inspired by the peaceful and chill vibes of being by the water, I drop it as a suggestion any time I can! Luckily, Jenna and Mitch were up for it! We met at dawn […]

I’ve spent most of today pouring over these photos from my last wedding of 2019 as I sit in my cozy Williamsburg home during this COVID-19 crisis. I’ve just placed the order for their album, and I think it’s about time for their blog post, wouldn’t you say?! These two met at the gym. Cody […]

I am the girl who starts the effort of going to the gym on the first of the month. I start a new piece of paper if I mess up on my grocery list. And I need a clean house before I leave for vacation so that when I come home. I LOVE FRESH STARTS […]

What a treat it was to be shooting only 10 minutes from my house! Since moving to Williamsburg, I haven’t really had a change to move my market focus here!

A few weekends ago, I flew to Atlanta for an engagement session! I was there for a total of 24 hours, so it was a whirlwind but it was so worth it! Jennifer and I had been trying to find a good time to schedule this shoot. Patrick is a 4 hour drive away, and […]

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 […]

If you’re reading this and live on the East Coast, you know that this past weekend, we had a weekend of crazy weather. It was a “perfect storm,” as my dad called it. Wind and rains from the southern hurricane, and another storm coming in from the northwest left us with a WASHOUT of a […]
