Andrew & Kate: Summer Mount St. Francis Maternity Session

The maternity season is so fleeting even though in the moment, especially the last 6ish weeks, it feels like forever. I love getting to help friends remember this brief time when the anticipation of meeting your newest love is high and the discomfort may be even higher, haha. A woman’s body is remarkable and in…

Cameron & Allie: Louisville Christmas Portraits

Since moving to Louisville, I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many new people, especially other creatives! Cameron and Allie are photographers who are also in Louisville for seminary!

Josh & Amanda: Waterfront Park Louisville KY Anniversary

As a married woman, I love meeting and watching other marrieds interact. Josh and Amanda are no exception! Amanda is so fun and goofy (she’d take that as a compliment, I promise 🙂 ) and Josh is more reserved. And together, they have a joyful, laughter-filled relationship that I enjoyed getting a glimpse of. This…

Christy: Mellwood Arts Center Louisville KY Headshots

One of the most fun, but also most difficult parts of moving is making new friends. As a true introvert, making friends is HARD. I do not like putting myself out there and doing the “small talk” thing. But it’s just something that has to happen to meet new people! But then, when you meet…

Grace: Whimsical Boho Chic Bridals

It’s not until I get such sweet, fun-loving, photogenic brides like Grace that I realize just how many pictures I can take of a single person! Haha. Doing bridals for Grace was so much fun! She is so natural in front of the camera. Her model face, smolder, and smile are a photographer’s dream!  We…

Ashley: Colonial Williamsburg Bridal Portraits

It seems as though the cold winter weather has decided to come and stick around here in Virginia for awhile. Though I do enjoy winter, it’s only tolerable if it snows (in my opinion). So if it doesn’t snow, I’ll begin to pine for those warm summer months with its late, light evenings and beautiful…

John & Michele: Phoenix Arizona Desert Anniversary

Last week at this time I was on the red eye coming back from Phoenix with incredibly heavy eyes, but a full heart. John & Michele are two people whom I love so much. Getting to spend their 1 year anniversary with them was such an honor and to capture them in their new home…

Kim: Smith Mountain Lake Bridal Portraits

Back in the spring, I met Kim at her grandmother’s home on Smith Mountain Lake for some bridal portraits. This location held a special place in Kim’s heart because it’s where she spent many summers growing up. She and her mom told stories of jumping off docks and boat rides. It’s even where Kim learned…

It’s no secret over here on my blog that I’m a Christian. Matt and I are heavily involved with our church and attend a young married small group every week. We’ve been blessed with a wonderful community of friends of all ages here in Hampton Roads and we couldn’t be more thankful for each one…
