Good Things

  • A Day Off and Cleaning the Closet

in.  I got up at ten and realized my voice was completely gone. I’m guessing that was from the allergies I’ve been fighting all week, shooting a wedding on Saturday and then the combination of yelling over 60 teenagers at youth group last night. Our weekends are long… really long. On Saturday and Sunday when the rest of the world is relaxing and gearing up for a new week…. Michael and I are working. So today, as Michael got ready to head off to the office and I laid in bed, 1/2 dead… he told me to take the day off.  Even though I was only about 15% coherent at that time, I heard what he said and I decided it was a great idea.

Ryan + Kristen | Engaged

  • Virginia Fine Art Museum Engagement Session

forgot about PICASSO! We planned Kristen and Ryan’s engagement session at the Virginia Fine Arts Museum a few days before the Picasso exhibit was leaving. So there were crowds of people from ALL over the east coast running around outside the museum.  What was I thinking?! Well, let me just say, if Kristen and Ryan can have a super successful e-session in crowds of people…I can’t even imagine how awesome their wedding images will be! They seriously acted like pros! I explained the “Model” face once and they just got it! Yesssssss! I love engagement sessions where I leave feeling like I know the couple 10x better than before.
