What’s the best way to surprise your sister for her anniversary? Easy – work with your brother-in-law to schedule portraits for your niece while they’re away. That’s exactly what Sara did as we eagerly prepped for weeks to make sure sweet Helen’s photos were perfect. After her aunt found her a beautiful dress, this happy […]

Helen’s Whimsical Field Portraits| Toms Brook, VA

Friends, I’m in love! Everyone enjoys a good styled shoot. However, this stunning shoot was created by my fellow photographer and good friend Shanna from Shanna Lorraine Photography. It embraced a gorgeous dusty blue hue that was accented by soft peach and subtle pinks. Although already beautiful on paper, this shoot was brought to life […]

Dusty Blue and Peach Styled Shoot | Landfall Lodge, Winchester, VA

Photographing Brittany, Robbie, and baby Maverick was a long-awaited treat! As with any session during Virginia’s harsh winter, we found ourselves rescheduling to accommodate weather and hoping for the best. So you can only imagine our excitement when we arrived to our session on a beautiful (almost spring-like) day! So let’s talk about how adorable […]

Mackness Family Portraits | Manassas National Battlefield Park, Manassas, VA

“I rarely get the opportunity to get dolled up” this sweet mama said to me as she excitedly hopped out of the car – husband and little one in tow. Having two children, a husband, a pup, and a successful business herself, Alecia spends most of her time taking care of her family and staying […]

Alecia – Individual Portraits | Deer Rapids Swinging Bridge, Strasburg, VA

Anxiously checking the weather, Jennifer and I determined we were going to see snow, rain, and/or sleet during her and Andrew’s engagement session on Saturday. While rescheduling is always an option, the two lovebirds were traveling all the way from Pennsylvania for their session. As you can imagine, we were pleasantly surprised to see the […]

Adam & Sarah | Engaged | Blandy Experimental Farm, Boyce, VA

When normal people receive snow, they shovel their driveways and stay inside. They sip on hot cocoa, watch a few movies, and eagerly await spring. When we receive snow, I schedule shoots at the historic Blandy Experimental Farm. In hopes to celebrate the busy winter weather, Charity and I planned a romantic shoot with a […]

Charity | Elegant Snow Session | Blandy Experimental Farm, Boyce, VA

It was an overcast day in the beautiful historic gardens. As the brides in this styled shoot walked down the stone-lined pathways, their dresses gently flowed behind them in the subtle breeze. It was the beautiful set up for a whimsical shoot. Although it would eventually rain, causing us to all flee under stone archways, […]

Whimsical Styled Shoot | Richmond, VA

Winter sessions are often a little difficult due to cold temperatures and the lack of foliage. The skies are often overcast and faces are often flushed from the brisk air.¬†This wasn’t the case with Katie, Christian, and baby Elyse’s recent family session, however. The sun was shining, the sky was a vivid blue, and we […]
