Ashbea & Ethan | Lifestyle

These two are familiar faces to the blog. I have had the privilege of photographing Ashbea and Ethan for several years. It’s extra special that I taught Ashbea when she was in high school — fast forward a handful of years — and here we are. These two high school sweethearts are

‘Beauty Revived’ is a national campaign to shed light on beautiful women — teens, young adults, sisters, mothers, grandmothers — all women, and gives the photographer the power to shape and revive the perception of a woman’s self-image. I’m all about that!!! Let’s celebrate beauty in multiple ways,

Goodloe Family

I loved working with this family a few weeks ago! We were fortunate to a sun-filled afternoon for their mini session. This session has been in the works for months, it was gifted to their mother for Christmas. (great idea!!!) I am so glad we could get the entire family home and together for this

Goodloe Family | Sneak Peek

I think we may finally have some warm weather ahead of us in Richmond!! I’m so excited the sun came out for the first family session of the year! Don’t wait to book your Spring portrait or family session. They’re going fast! I met this sweet family at their NEW home for portraits

Beauty Revived | Announcement

I received such exciting news over the weekend, and how appropriate on the heels of International Women’s Day yesterday! ‘Beauty Revived’ is a national campaign to shed light on beautiful women — teens, young adults, sisters, mothers, grandmothers — all women, and

Siblings | Mini

This is a special post for me today. Special on many levels — special because I always love photographing my students. Technically speaking, Hanna was only my student for 6 weeks when I was a long-term sub two years ago, but we have reconnected because her Mom owns the gym that I regularly

Gallagher Family | Mini

I absolutely LOVE when I get to see my clients for a second (or third!!) portrait session! I photographed Corey & Suzie several times last year — for their engagement session and wedding — and a few weeks ago they attended my Fall Mini Session. I cannot tell you how incredibly

Fall Mini Sessions | Sneak Peek

It’s been a couple of years since I ran a Mini Session Special, and although I love to style shoots and be very involved in the planning process with my clients, I tried not to over-plan for these lifestyle session. They were all shot at the same location, but I love the variety each family

Fall Mini Session Special

I had a great response and feedback from our Summer Mini Session Special and what I heard was that many of you want a FALL Mini Session Special. August was hectic, but you know you want to get everyone together for portraits before the year ends! Let’s do it!!! This Fall Mini Session is a

Spring Sessions | 2014

For some of us it’s hard to think about Spring with so much SNOW on the ground!! Or, maybe, you’re like me, and BECAUSE of the snow, you’re already thinking about Spring!! I’m excited for this Spring! It’ll be here soon! Make sure you’ve taken a look at our new

Davis Family | Film

A few words technically about this session… it is my first ALL color film session. I’m not sure why it’s taken me THREE years to shoot an entire session with color film (probably because I just adore black and white so much) but I am so happy to share this all color, film, family

Davis Family | Sneak Peek

Can’t wait to share more from yesterday’s family session at Byrd Park! Look at this blue-eyed munchkin.. on the move!!

The Zapantis Family

It is no doubt that one of the best gifts you could ever gift a Mother would be a portrait session of her family… and that’s exactly what was done this past Christmas for this family. I know you’ve seen Haylie many times on this blog, but this is the first time we’ve seen

Zapantis Family Sneak Peek!! More coming soon!!

Custom Stationary | Behind the Scenes

I began offering a new service to my clients over the past year that included custom designed stationary, announcements, and holiday cards through Minted. (an amazing company!!) I had so many clients inquire about creating custom stationary for them last year, but I didn’t have the time, nor

The Pullin Family

For my family, it is always a special time when we can get the ENTIRE family together. It seems like an impossible task to align everyone’s calendars and get everyone in the same place. However, when we do have the chance and make the effort, it is always a lot of fun and such a memorable
