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 […]

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.┬áIn June of 2014, I left my job as a hair stylist to pursue photography full time. Now this past […]

Good morning, everyone! Senior season is winding down for the class of 2018 this month as we’re seeing many of our girls graduate. I’ve been a little torn with what to post lately because I have a lot of material on the blogging block, but I figured it had been awhile since I had shared […]

A few weeks ago on the blog I shared Courtney and Zack’s first look portrait session, so I’d like to say this is a part two blog post to their love story. If you haven’t seen that particular post, you can see it here (and I do suggest looking at that one first!) Fast forwarding […]
