The Snapshot

  • October 2012

sad when something happens and part of a coaching session gets rescheduled. However, I realize yesterday that it actually worked out quite well that Brittany was sick and had to reschedule because instead of taking pictures of her coaching partner… she had to take pictures of me! You should feel sorry for her because my model face doesn’t come as easily as it should! haha So a big thanks for Brittany Claud for this pic for September! And ps. can we just talk about how awesome the natural light is in a parking garage?!! Really, who knew?! I shoot in that parking space so much I think they should make it permanently mine!

Beau + Jourdan | Engaged

  • A Downtown Fredericksburg Engagement

a little under the weather the past 4 or 5 days but I’ve been trying to hide it pretty well. There’s nothing that can ruin the mood of a wedding or an engagement shoot than a sniffling photographer! So I’ve been downing some Airborne, sleeping in an extra 30 minutes or so and I’ve almost finished off a whole bottle of Simply Orange Mango! (That stuff is good!).  Gratefully, I’m starting to feel better! Beau and Jordan had to listen to me clear my throat and sound like a man during their engagement session but they were kind enough to say “Oh, you don’t sound bad!”… But I did.  They are just as sweet

Meet Hannah

  • Main Street Portraits | Richmond VA

Michael and I met the youth at our church for the first time, it was a little overwhelming. SO many teenagers and so many names to remember.  I tend to be pretty bad with names but I will remember RANDOM things about everyone that I meet. When it came to Hannah, I remembered her hair.  We had a conversation the first time we met about how she straightened her hair and that just stuck with me for some reason! The second time I saw her… I immediately thought “Oh, she’s the one that straightened her hair” and I immediately remembered our whole conversation. So Hannah started out as the “girl with straight hair”
