Craig + Jessica | Everyday

Charlottesville Photographer

I’ve always

dreamed of living on a hill. Like, a BIG hill….. a hill that is borderline a small mountain! I grew up living in the country and my parent’s house is on a small hill and I loved it! Whenever I travel over Afton Mountain, I just think of how awesome it would be to walk out on my front porch and be able to see for MILES and MILES! Hey, a girl can dream. Last week I shot a quick session for our friend’s Craig and Jessica in Crozet, VA. This little town outside of Charlottesville stole my heart. The rolling hills and old victorian style homes are breathtaking.  As we traveled down the country roads, we found a random

Wedding Wednesday

A Small Christmas Display & Target Clearance


needs a hobby. My hobby used to be photography. In college, my favorite thing to do in my free time was hangout with people, take pictures and then post them to facebook. I literally have hundreds of personal albums on my facebook account! But after Photography became my career….. it started to feel less and less like a hobby. I have to be really careful that I shoot for ME sometimes and not JUST during sessions and weddings. After doing this for three years, I’ve realized that there are other creative outlets in my life that give me a break from photography.  I love to sing Adele and play the piano (by ear, I have no idea how to read music… I wish I did!).

Christmas Cards

And a week of Album Designs

Once Thanksgiving

is over, I feel like it’s a race to Christmas. The shopping has to get done, the decorations have to be hung and the Christmas cards have to be ordered! Has anyone else noticed that it’s DECEMBER 13th?!!! What?! HOW?! How is it already two weeks into December? It blows my mind! I remember being in school and thinking “Christmas break will NEVER get here!”. Now that I’m out of school and working… I feel like Thanksgiving happened last week. The days are flying by and I have work to be done! This week is marathon week for albums. So if you want to know what Katelyn will be doing all week…

Jason + Jackie | Everyday

Virginia Photographer

It was a

really rainy evening the night I drove down to meet Jason and Jackie for the first time. I lugged my sample albums into a little mexican place and we sat and talked and I loved them.  I ended up shooting their wedding, a close friend’s wedding and then Jackie’s brother’s wedding too! I think it’s easy to see that I love this family. There is just something about them. Maybe it’s the country-ness of the Hodges side of the family… or maybe it’s how genuinely sweet Jason and Jackie’s personalities are… I just really love them.  So months and months ago (before I stopped offering portraits), Jackie contacted me and told me they were expecting…

A Sick Day

And Why Airborne isn't as Nasty as it Seems!

Today is

a sick day.  A day when all I really want to do is lay under our down comforter and watch old episodes of Friends. Yesterday I got home in the evening from a shoot and was returning emails while Michael was at a meeting. I was ready to conqueror my inbox and get an album design done but veryyyyy slowly, I started losing motivation.  After about 30 minutes, I realized the house was CHILLY and I went downstairs to turn the heat up but it was at 76! So I thought “Hmmm… that thermometer must be broken because it is COLD in here!!”.
