Meet Sarah

  • A Spring Time Senior Shoot

Spring is HERE! And so is the pollen! We have a nice layer of “green” on everything around here! Thankfully, we took Sarah’s senior portraits last week before the rush of pollen swept through the area. We took her portraits on the most perfect afternoon in Maymont. We walked around together and just when we thought we were about done, we found the TULIPS! They are gorgeous!! Sarah looked so beautiful and grown up! Seriously, where have the last 4 years gone? We’ve been in Richmond for over 4 and a half years and so that means we met Sarah right as she was finishing up her years in middle school!

April 2014 Workshop | Styled Shoot

  • A Watercolor Inspired Wedding Shoot

It’s true that it takes a small army to produce a great styled shoot. I couldn’t do this on my own. I’ve actually tried in the past and it was extremely stressful!! I’m beyond thankful for Amanda Veronee and her willingness to style and serve!! This shoot is hands down one of my FAVORITE workshop styled shoots to date!!! I mean, you’ll see what I’m talking about as soon as you scroll! Everything was just stunning and bright and fresh and FRUITY! :) It was so much fun to photograph!

Introducing Emily & The Edibles

  • A Home Made for Hosting

Oh man, oh MAN! What a DAY today is!! I can’t tell you how excited I am about this! When I blogged about A Home Made for Hosting several months ago, my heart was to provide inspiration for those who love serving people with their home! So far, we have had such a positive and overwhelming response and we are so thankful!! From the very beginning, the idea of this series wasn’t just something that I wanted to do on my own, I had a secondary vision for it!!
