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!

The KJ Rebrand Recap

  • Behind the Scenes

As some of you may have read, I have never been officially branded by anyone… ever. I started getting into this field through graphic design and so I assumed that I knew enough to do it on my own. It was fine for a while! But eventually I became increasingly more and more annoyed at my inability to design for myself. I wanted it all. I didn’t have the “bigger picture” mentality to see beyond all of my little ideas.
