Exciting News for the James Family!!

  • What a Weekend!

Have you ever anticipated something but had no idea when it was happening?! I experienced this on Saturday. I knew that Saturday was going to be a HUGE day for our family… more specifically, my baby sister. Emily’s boyfriend, Joe had shared that Saturday was the big day…. he was PROPOSING!

A Fall, Maymont Park Engagement

  • Jason + Mary | Engaged

hard to believe that Michael and I moved to Richmond over three years ago! I remember growing up and hearing about Maymont, Belle Isle and Carytown but never visiting RVA at all! I mean, we went to the museums and IMAX theater as kids, but I didn’t REALLY see all that Richmond had to offer until the last three years. It’s such a beautiful city and the longer we’re here, the more I love it! The heart of Richmond is home for Jason and Mary! They live really close to Maymont Park and so it made perfect sense for us to shoot there! It was SO beautiful so that park was packed! It looked like fall but felt like mid September!

  • Coaching

hard to believe that over 50 photographers have had coaching sessions with us in the last year and a half! It’s really quite humbling actually. I love teaching… from the bottom of my heart, I just love it! It’s such a blessing in my life and I feel like I’m right where I need to be when I’m helping other photographers grow and take steps forward. A photographer once asked “Isn’t spending 9:30am to 6:00pm helping people DRAINING?!!”. Well, I’m tired afterwards but it’s not draining… I actually get energy FROM people and so I love coaching days!
