Steven + Clare | Engaged

  • A Riverside Winter Engagement Session | Richmond Virginia

Steven and Clare traveled all the way from Louisiana for their engagement session this past weekend. The hours they spent on the road to catch a flight and then the hours they spent driving to get to Richmond shows just how much this meant to them. Our relationship with Clare started years ago when she attended my workshop as a new photographer. She was so young but so brave. She was just getting started on her photography journey and it’s amazing to see where she’s taken her business.

Dear James Michael

  • A Letter to Our Baby Boy

Our Sweet James Michael,

Your story started unexpectantly back in October of 2017. Your sister was just 8 months old and getting pregnant with another baby wasn’t on your momma and daddy’s radar. When we were trying to get pregnant with your sister, it took half a year of very calculated dates, cycles, and tons of prayer. We weren’t the people who just got pregnant instantly. So you can imagine how shocked we were when I took a pregnancy test right before leaving for an engagement session and it was positive. We couldn’t believe it. We were shocked but that quickly turned to excitement and thankfulness. 

Tech with Ty | Podcast Interview

  • A Conversation about the Beginning of My Journey

Hey friends! I wanted to blog this, because I feel like if I just share it on Instagram, I will lose the link to this a year from now, and I love it so much that I want it to be in my archives! My good friend Tyler Herrinton has launched something that I think has been stirring in him for a long time. He LOVES talking about Tech and helping others understand the tools of this industry. However, he also loves sharing about business, and so this new project is perfect for him!!! I’m excited, because I was asked to be the VERY first guest on the “Tech with Ty” PODCAST!
