Creating the Glow

  • Ask Anything

I’m always blown away to hear from blog readers across the pond! That’s just so cool!! I received an email from Peter, a reader from England, and he was asking about lighting. So instead of typing all of this out in a long email, I thought it would be nice to just do a blog post!

A Historic Tredegar Museum Engagement Shoot

  • Chris + Carly | Engaged

Couples that email me about a winter engagement shoot without hesitation always impress me! They aren’t worried one bit about the cold or lack of color… they just want to get their portraits done and they trust me! …. And that means a lot! Chris and Carley we in town for Thanksgiving and we just happened to be in the same city at the same time!

Jazz Nativity | This Weekend!

  • Jazziest Time of the Year!

Today started early for me. It’s a Jazzy time of the year for us!! Our church puts on an incredible Jazz concert around Christmas time each year called Jazz Nativity. Last year we missed it because of a destination wedding and I hated not being a part of it! It’s such an awesome way to begin the Christmas season!! I’m singing this year and I’m always a little nervous. What makes me even MORE nervous is the fact that it’s almost SOLD OUT! All FIVE shows! What?! Wednesday morning (today!) at 7am we’ll be performing on the radio live on 100.9!
