It’s SO special for me to be sharing these engagements with you!! Janette is so special to me, she is the woman (along with her son Covey) who watched Maverick and Pierson since P was 6 weeks old. I remember meeting her and just feeling so at ease (which means a lot of if you’ve […]

I have been SO looking forward to this wedding date since JANUARY of last year!!! After getting to know Tyler and already knowing Carley I was certain of one thing: this wedding would be the PARTY to be at and it would have STYLE!!! I was not disappointed. They completely transformed the Woman’s Club of Portsmouth […]

ANYTIME I get to be at my favorite venue in Hampton Roads, the Hermitage Museum & Gardens is a win for me!! I love the gardens and the view, how well manicured it is and how many portrait spots are on the property!!! BUT add in that I get to reconnect with clients from a […]

My spring wedding season kicked off last Friday with Kara and KC’s PERFECT day over at the Historic Post office and it did not disappoint!! With Kara having some experience in wedding planning, as well as a perfect blank slate venue her day was straight out of a Pinterest board! I showed up to the […]

It has been a long time coming for me to get to Belle Isle in Richmond! I have always wanted to shoot there on the rocks in the river and these two were so gracious to shoot there!! Alex and Billy live nearby and visit often with their pup Cooper, so it was more exciting […]

Well my first time to the University of Virginia in gorgeous Charlottesville did NOT disappoint!!! HOLY COW this campus is amazing and I could shoot there every session without getting bored! Add in that I got to spend nearly TWO hours with these two and it was the perfect Friday the 13! When I talked […]

Oh April, spring showers and crazy temperatures but you also bring in PORTRAIT SEASON!!! Can I get an amen?! Typically when mid November rolls around, I am so looking forward to my downtime but by mid March I am itching to shoot and the weather rarely cooperates here in Norfolk, VA! Kelli & Mike are […]

I am a firm believer, and have told so many of my brides, investing in a quality vendor team will ensure your day runs smoothly and you can actually enjoy your wedding day! That was definitely the case for Melissa and Clyde!! The day started with Melissa getting ready at a nearby hotel so her […]

I love doing styled shoots with my friend Misty of Misty Saves the Day! I’m a huge advocate of doing them for yourself, for good reason and with good heart so when I come to her with an idea she knows I mean business!! Styled shoots are quite the time (and financial!!) investment, so if […]

Well this wedding was a JOLLEY good time…see what I did there? 😉 (Psst Andrew’s last name is Jolley) When I first chatted with Meg I fell in love with her!! Seriously she is so funny, sarcastic, LOVES to read and is a princess….like really is one for her job!! After we gushed over our […]

Ah my LAST engagement session of the season!!! What an incredible year it’s been between weddings and 2018 engagements, maternity sessions and the countless other portrait sessions I don’t share here on the blog because I would be a good 5 months behind on blogging! I met Carter when she was in town briefly to […]

With the colder weather approaching, that means engagement and portrait sessions have slowed down so has the blog!! BUT I have two more sessions to share before we close out the year, and this is one of them!! It has been a whirlwind of a year for me and this little photography business. 2018 is […]

Today’s engagement session featuring real life heroes, but duh I am biased. Cayla and Ben are getting married next October at the Historic Post Office but really wanted fall engagements!! They showed up dress to the nines AND gave me the sweetest gift. (Words of affirmation and then gifts are my love language so it […]

I have just been SO blessed with the most incredible couples for 2018 and I am loving all these fall engagement sessions with them!!! You know I am definitely a summer and beach girl but I can’t deny there is something so pretty about that fall glow and the soft muted colors fall brings!! Especially […]

You know the best part about engagement sessions is always finally getting to meet my bride and groom in person (usually!!) but the worst part? It could be another 8-12 months before we see each other again!!! After rescheduling because of a stupid Hurricane wind effect spin off who knows kind of weather, these two […]

When Andrew and Meg started planning their engagement session, she just wanted it to feel like FALL. We originally were hoping for a pumpkin patch but on a Sunday in October all the ones around are either closed or JAM PACKED so we scratched that idea and turned to the newly renovated New Earth Farm. […]

  The forecast had 0% chance of rain and when I pulled up my Dark Sky app while I was standing AT the Founders Inn and still 0% and I was outside in a light mist. I walked into the calmest getting ready room, where Kristen and her girls were relaxing waiting for me! Bopping […]

Guys, I am LOVING that my blog has been taken over by maternity sessions! Since that door is closed for me it’s always a treat to chat with soon to be mommas (for the first, second or more time!) about it all! I think it is INCREDIBLE to see what God can and let’s be […]

Have you ever thought what is a guests first inclination of what your day would be like? The thing that sets the tone for it? It is hands down your wedding invitation!! It lets guests have a sneak into your “theme” or “colors” and how formal or relaxed it will be! I love to see […]

  I’ve always been very vocal about being a mom was the one thing I wanted to be when I grew up. I didn’t really care much about anything else except wanting kids. Coming from a large family (I’m the oldest of 6 in case you’re new around here!!) having my own family unit at […]
