Let me

first start by explaining that as much as I wish this wasn’t true… I’m still not a portrait photographer. Because of the demands of weddings and engagements, I have stopped shooting portraits… except for my family and close friends.  I wish I could do it ALL but my schedule just won’t let me! (And my husband would actually like to see me every now and then! haha).  I’m still shooting senior portraits for the kids in our youth group because really, they feel like our family. We’ve been in Short Pump well over a year and a 1/2  but I think Michael would agree that it feels like we’ve known these families forever. Kelsey was one of the first high school girls

Growing up

in a small town and then going to a small school made it super easy for Michael and I to make friends.  We’re “People People” if that makes any sense. We’re naturally drawn to people and we enjoy having friendships with A LOT of people… maybe that’s why there were 400+ people at our wedding! AHHH! Crazy. Because we’ve been together so long…we feel like we have been collecting friends from every stage of life.  We have friends from our home church, friends from CNU, friends from our new church and friends from the photography industry. We love these people and we’re so thankful for the impact they have had on our lives.

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

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…

Whenever

anyone moves to a new place and starts a new phase of life, they’re always hoping to find someone who will be really receptive and welcoming.  When Michael and I moved to Short Pump, we were praying for just that. We were ALMOST married, Michael was starting a new job and was VERY new to the whole “full time youth pastor” thing, we just bought our first house, and we were starting over in a new church and a new community for the FIRST time in our lives. Uhhhh, we were a little overwhelmed. One of the greatest blessings of this past year and a half has been the support and friendships that we have gained at our new church.
