  • Richmond Senior Shoot

I could shoot more of these sessions because they’re just so much fun… but unfortunately, I have to save my few extra evenings for just our friends and family’s shoots! Last Monday, it was Brendan and Rachel’s turn! We’ve known these two for a while and so when they asked about having their senior portraits done, we decided to do them on the same day and them have a double date afterwards!

  • Meet Deborah | Deborah Zoe Photography

so excited about this post!! Why you may ask? Well because it’s a post about one of the sweetest gals in the industry!! I’m serious! I met Debbie a WHILE ago at my FIRST WPPI!

A Life Day

  • No blog post today!! Gasp!

not necessarily “taking the day off”… I’m just trying to get stuff done that normal people get done on a regular basis. You know… laundry, stopping by the bank, taking the car to the shop, vacuuming our nasty carpet, buying a few groceries, attending a cycle class and actually making the bed!! These are all SIMPLE things… but I can’t seem to get them done. So today is a LIFE day. I’m not relaxing and doing nothing… I’m literally just trying to keep up with LIFE. So no blog post, no editing, no massive amount of email responding… just doing LIFE. So have a fabulous Thursday and congrats to Gabrielle Corbin!!
