My Newest Resource for Photographers

  • The KJ Education Site!

Well, this is embarrassing. If you’re a loyal blog reader, you’re going to immediately know why I’m embarrassed! A few weeks ago I shared my new KJ EDUCATION site. But can I just be honest???? It wasn’t good. Sure, it was pretty… and it was semi-functional… but it wasn’t good. It wasn’t what I wanted or what I envisioned. I don’t know what I was thinking!!

The Breaking Point in Posing

  • Ask Anything

We all experience it at some point. Awkward moments during a shoot are normal. I actually tell my couples during their engagement session that if they DON’T feel awkward during the first 20 minutes, I will be shocked! :) It allows them to feel a little uncertain while also knowing that they aren’t weird! However, this “awkward-ness” should end QUICKLY!

Well where do I start with this one?! This shoot is so special to me. When my sister Emily was in college, I made SEVERAL trips to visit her. She’s a Hokie and so it was quite a commitment to travel to Tech from my college in the Newport News area. (For those that have NO idea about Virginia’s layout, this is about a 5 hour drive!!). So why did I love going to visit so much? Because I love my sister and I LOVE her friends.
