My goal list goes a little deeper than the standard “shot list” - it's the heart-melter things, the feelings. If I can capture these things, I know the session is something that will truly serve the family well.Read More
Ahhh summer love. Virginia hills. Dancing the night away. Sweet tea and sparklers.
This wedding was all the rustic vibes you can dream of, but the best part? By far, it was the tangible, emotional love that could be felt by the bride and groom.

Remember this brave couple? We met on a 9 degree day in January for an outdoor maternity session by the lake to celebrate in preparation for their little girl. A few months later, I got to meet their oh so tiny and sweet daughter for the first time as we captured some of the softness in their new life together at home.Read More
You never realize just how much you learned from your mom until you stop and realize she's pretty much the backbone of all your values, quirks, and habits. You also never realize just how little you can do to truly say 'thank you' enough for all the crap you put her through growing up.Read More
