One of my most popular products last year was the barn wood frame!  I just delivered this gorgeous piece this afternoon and it is absolutely beautiful in person.  It is made from reclaimed barn wood and adds so much character to each photograph.  Especially to a home that has rustic decor.  I just love this image with the frame.

If you have some images you need framed (or printed… ahem… looking at you, with all those digitals sitting and wasting away on your hard drive!), I would love to chat and see how we can get some artwork up on your walls!  Just a day in the life making homes feel homey and radiate with love, one printed image at a time ;)

Newsome wedding – Ashland, VA

While I’m catching up on blog posts… Sherri and Dennis’ got married over the summer at the Hanover Country Club in Ashland, VA.  This sweet couple had a special request before the ceremony– they wanted to pray together but not see each other.  We scouted around and found a wall where they could stand so Dennis could not see any part of her dress.  Their first look as she came down the aisle was worth it, as they were both beaming ear to ear.  Here are some highlights from their special day!

I had the honor of photographing a friend and her sweet family as they wanted some photos to make a big announcement!  Emily seriously has the cutest little pout and I had a great time making a fool out of myself just trying to make her laugh  #noshame

Can we just take a moment to talk about how ridiculously good looking and photogenic this little family is?!  Ahh!


This fall has been such a crazy season for me and I am so thankful to all of my clients for keeping me busy!  I’ve loved every second of every session and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all of my … Continue reading

NOW BOOKING Holiday Mini Sessionsholi

I am now booking for my annual holiday mini sessions!  I am so excited to offer these to my clients each year as a quick, fun, and stress-free way to get their holiday cards and some shopping out of the way.  This year, I am having Santa Claus himself come to these sessions to play with each child!  Each session includes a 10 minute personalized play date with Santa, 25 holiday cards, and 3 digital images.  Add-ons are available, as well as gift vouches for Christmas presents!  For those that do not participate in Santa or Christmas, I will also have a separate area set aside for family portraits.  The price for these sessions is $200 and as always, we will have cookies and hot chocolate, as well as some activities for the kids.

These sessions will take place in Doswell, VA and time slots will go fast!  I do not offer mini sessions very often, so make sure you reserve your space before it’s too late!  I can NOT wait to see all the kid’s faces when they get to interact with Santa!!  He will be reading stories, playing trains, Barbies, ball, etc.  This Santa is totally legit, awesome and down for anything!

If you have any questions about the session, please e-mail me!  And for fun, here is a cute image from last year’s session.  No Santa last year, but everyone loved the milk and cookies!


Rain, rain, go away


This rain sure has been putting a damper on my scheduled portrait sessions, but I am excited to see the fall colors sprouting up.  I’ve been itching to get out and shoot, so this “hurricane” is driving me bonkers.  I do … Continue reading

September already??

Summer has certainly flown by this year.  I can’t believe kids are already back in school.  Because of this, my weekend time slots are very limited as I’m gearing up for my busy fall/holiday season.  I just wanted to write a quick note to remind everyone to please sign up for my e-mail list, if you haven’t already done so!  You will not receive any spam or annoying e-mails, just the occasional reminder of a fantastic deal, or first dibs on time slots/dates for any special sessions I am putting on!  If you’d like to be placed on my mailing list, please let me know and send your e-mail address to


With that said, I’ve already begun planning my Christmas sessions for this year.  If you have attended these super fun events in the past two years, this year’s will be a little different and hopefully even more awesome!  I am still working out the specific details, BUT I know that everyone will absolutely love the new format and I hope to see many old and new faces this year!  Again, first dibs on available time slots will be offered to clients on my VIP mailing list first, so if you haven’t sent me that e-mail yet, don’t wait!

I hope everyone has a fabulous rest of the week!  Here are some cuties to get you through the rest of this hump day.  <3
