Maymont Senior Portraits

  • Meet Alia

know those families that are just jam packed with talent? Well, the Prasad family is one of those families. I remember when we first started coming to Gayton (Our church) and I couldn’t believe how much Kristin (Alia’s mom) was in charge of! Kristin is on full time staff at GBC and she keeps that place rolling! Not only was I impressed with Kristin, her children are quite impressive as well. Alia is incredible on the violin!! Despite her busy school schedule and soccer schedule, she makes time to play at church constantly! And not only is she musically talented, she’s brilliant!! Alia has a scholarship to Vanderbilt

My clients, my coaching gals, my mentors in the industry… the list goes on and on…. and I’m grateful. I’m so thankful for these people who believe in not only MY business but who believe in their businesses as well.

There are some locations in Richmond that I would be happy if I never shot there again. As a creative person, I need NEW places to keep things exciting… or so I thought.

Last year, Williamsburg was one of those locations for me that I had shot in numerous times in one season but I wanted to do
