Coaching

  • May 2012 | Arli and Annamarie

idea a few months ago.  It consisted of helping photographers, hanging out with awesome people that love doing that I love to do and making new friends.  The idea of a “Coaching” session was born when I realized that I LOVE people and I love photography and this was a way to combine the two! So this past week I was able to host my first coaching session ever! …. and it was awesome!

Mandy's Bridals

  • A Garden Themed Bridal Shoot

it was just last month that we were shooting Jill’s Bridal session at the Farm.  It’s crazy how fast a YEAR can fly by!

Emy is Graduating!

  • Virginia Tech Graduation & New Beginnings

this day all too well.  My house of roommates were all emotional. As we approached graduation, our hugs lasted a few seconds longer,  our time at our house became more precious and our “I love you’s” more frequent. We knew the end was coming. The days of sharing clothes, staying up to 3am and cooking “family” dinners were almost over.  My years living with my best friends at CNU were incredible and I’m SO thankful that when my sister went to Virginia Tech, she had the same experience.  Emy found some amazing girlfriends that  changed her life when she came to VT!
