There are

so many different landscapes in Virginia. We’ve got it ALL. Mountains, rivers, plains, swamps!, oceanfront, cities, valleys, etc.  Every time I’m in the mountains I think “Oh, I”m definitely a mountain kind of girl”. I would take the mountains over the beach any day. However, then I sessions like these that make me re-think my mountain decision. I love the water. There is just something so calm and peaceful about the water and going out on a boat… especially a sailboat! David and Melissa just recently welcomed a HUGE new toy into the family. Their new sailboat is gorgeous and they wanted some new portraits of the

Meet Margeaux

It’s one

thing to shoot a session for a fun, high school senior… and it’s another thing to shoot one with a girl who you ADORE. I love Margeaux. She’s a part of our youth group at Gayton and she has become a huge part of my life this past year. It started with one coffee date… and then that let to another and another.  Over the course of this past year, I’ve really gotten to know Margeaux over multiple slices of Starbucks’ pumpkin bread and Cookout milkshakes! Marge is incredible…. but like most high school girls… and really, most women in general, she doesn’t realize how amazing she is. She has a personality that literally lights up a whole room and when you’re around her….

Richmond Va Maternity Shoot

This just

seems surreal.  Wasn’t it like yesterday when I was sitting in Em’s room, making fun of her for having a zillion baby calendars everywhere? I’m exaggerating, she had like two of them. Em loves babies, motherhood, being pregnant, etc. She loves it all. In college, I was the one who just wanted to be done so that I could really run my business. Em wanted to be done because her dream was to get married and start a family. And that’s exactly what she did. Seth and Emily were married last August and are having a baby in only a matter of WEEKS!! This is CRAZY. We’re trying to squeeze in as many girl nights as possible before this little one arrives and makes

Meet Caitlyn

Well reason

number one why I love this girl is because she’s got a pretty awesome name. Caitlyn is a senior in our youth group at Gayton and whenever Michael and I talk about her… we tend to describe her as “legit”.  Let me explain what I mean by that. Caitlyn is the REAL DEAL.  She’s awesome and honest and she knows who she is.  She’s a hard worker, she’s compassionate and she’s honest. I adore her. We both do. Michael and I really don’t care for this whole “senior” thing too much.  We’re going to miss these kids!! Let’s not talk about that part.  Lets talk about Caitlyn’s session last week.  It poured all afternoon but we decided to take a chance

Meet Shelby

If you’re

a girl…. you’ll understand what I’m about to explain. You know the feeling when you meet a BEAUTIFUL girl and you get a litttttle intimidated because she’s literally drop dead gorgeous.  It happens to all of us…. and it happened to me when I first met Shelby.  However… it was a pleasant surprise to immediately realize that Shelby wasn’t aware of just how beautiful she was.  In fact, she’s probably one of the most down-to-earth girls in our whole youth group…. she just happens to look like a model.  I hope she always stays like that because really, that makes her even more attractive.  Shelbs is an incredible girl.  I’ve loved her since day one and I can’t
