I have known Alison for a long time — I photographed her and her sisters as kids and did Senior photos for her oldest sister Emily a few years back. She has the kind of smile that just completely lights up a room, and you can feel that energy just illuminate from her photos.




Mikaela was a joy to photograph. She was so spunky and full of life — and with awesome taste in books may I add! During the second half of her session, we witnessed hundreds of butterflies at Chatham Manor. We ended with a few “very October appropriate” shots near the old corn stalks.




So here we are, my favorite shoot of the year! This is the fifth year we have done a Halloween shoot, which is insane. It doesn’t feel like five years has gone by since our first one. This year while down in Nola, I felt inspired by the cultural icon that is Marie Laveau. The […]

Halloween 2018



Wow, it’s been a hot second since I’ve blogged. Today I want to share this adorable tiny wedding in Old Town Fredericksburg with Amanda and Ryan. Amanda has modeled for me as a “bride” probably about three times in the past, since I’ve known her since right out of high school. But this time she’s […]

Enjoying this August downtime before Senior season heats up next month. Today I’m sharing Sarah’s session from a few months back. Sarah is also a photographer and will be attending VCU this year to study photography. She’s also the only Senior to date to ever have a rainbow in her photos!




Oh Trinity, probably one of the most rescheduled Senior sessions we’ve had yet! It seemed like every time we planned her session, rain would come and soak everything into a sopping wet mess. After about six (??) reschedules, we finally came into some sunshine. We did end up with some pretty high winds, but it […]




Trying to keep up with all of the amazing Senior shoots we did at the beginning of this Summer. Today, I’m sharing Arizona’s session. This was really fun because I also photographed her sister Riley a few years back as well. We got the epitome of amazing lighting for this session, even though it was […]




August is here! After July dragging by for what felt like forever, August is finally here and I feel like it’s going to fly by. Katie and Zane’s wedding was the final of our early Summer weddings, so I am ready to share this southern plantation, rose gold styled goodness with you all on this […]

I have been so looking forward to sharing this wedding on the blog!! Joey and I are huge history buffs, and Yorktown is one of Virginia’s greatest little gems. We’ve taken many weekend getaway trips to Yorktown and stayed in the Hornsby House — and last year my dream came true when Andrew and Alison […]

  Hi everyone! I feel like it’s been ages since I last blogged and truth is, I’ve been a bit busy in my personal world. With this busyness, I have a bit of explaining to do. In June of 2014, I left my job as a hair stylist to pursue photography full time. Now this past […]
