What You Can Expect

  • Our Blogging Plan & Purpose!

So! Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been blogging everyday this week. “Is she back to her old ways” you may ask? Well, yes! …. Kinda… but not really. You see, taking a break from blogging was one of the greatest things I could have done for myself personally and for my business. Sometimes when you’re “in” something too long, you lose track of what it really looks like to other people. I think I had definitely gotten to that place with my blog. Somedays I just blogged to “blog”…. and that’s never what I intended for of our online presence!

Meet Danielle

  • A Country Senior Shoot

There are some people in this world that just always have a smile on their face. Danielle is one of those people! Michael and I first met Danielle when she was still in middle school!! We have lived in Richmond for almost 5 years now and it’s crazy to think that the once “little” kids are now getting into their dream schools and heading to college! Danielle was accepted to UVA recently and that is QUITE an accomplishment!! Our schools around here are incredibly competitive and she made the cut!
