Adventure sessions have become a fast favorite for me! I am always down to go adventuring and exploring for sessions. Not only because I love finding new places to shoot, but because it’s something new and fun for your family to experience together! I get to capture genuine moments and a family memory that will last forever, which is so important to me. When Nancy and Mike said they were down to explore, I was super excited and sending over all kinds of cool locations I’ve wanted to check out. We hiked to this beautiful waterfall for their couple’s session recently and the images did not disappoint! Here are some of the highlights!

I recently had the honor of photographing the lovely Lara Shannon, of And breathe-intuitive massage and bodywork for a super fun branding session! I sent her my styling and clothing guide for inspiration and she completely KNOCKED. IT. OUT. OF. THE. PARK! I may or may not have audibly shrieked…. okay, so maybe I did… when I saw her outfits on the hanger, but it was totally justified. I mean, take a look at some of the images from her gallery!
Branding sessions are meant to represent you, your inner spirit, and help share your message with the world. We wanted the images to feel lighthearted, carefree, and peaceful, and there was no more perfect place than this gorgeous field at sunset to photograph this beautiful lady! Make sure you check out her place in Ashland, VA!

I have worked with this super sweet family for a few sessions now, and I was so happy that they booked another family session over the fall! I always enjoy reconnecting with past clients and seeing how much their kids have grown. It was such a beautiful day in the city and that red dress was the absolute PERFECT choice to contrast against all the greenery around. It gave the perfect little pop of color for this set. Their canvas grouping turned out absolutely beautiful and is such a fun added piece for the kids’ playroom! Here is a quick peek from their family session in Richmond!
Yesssss, I am aware that it’s only September, BUT you know what that means! It’s time to start planning my annual holiday mini sessions! And this year, SANTA IS COMING BACK to see all of my sweet littlest clients again! We’ve been working with Santa every year for the past 4 years, and he is absolutely incredible with the children. Each session is a 20 minute personal interaction with Santa Claus and includes TWO amazing sets (see my images from the sets below, minus Santa). I have designed my holiday collections to each include all of your favorites! You can skip the lines with grumpy kids, get your holiday cards custom designed and printed, gifts for family members, AND snag heirloom pieces to pass down to your children with a STELLAR discount. I ONLY do discounted products once a year for these holiday themed sessions, so don’t miss your chance. Studio sessions without Santa are available as well. E-mail me today for more information or to reserve your spot! email@example.com

I met this little girl last year when she came to my annual Christmas + Santa sessions. It’s always so much fun to see how much my little clients have grown each time I see them. I just love so much being able to document these fun memories over the years for families. All of the small details are just as important to capture as their larger than life smiles, from their pouty lips down to their chubby little fingers and toes. These are the moments you will want to remember, and make up such a big part of the memories that make life so sweet. When her mama came into the studio to see all of her images, we laughed at her daughter’s many, MANY expressions, and I am so excited to begin designing her wall space with these fun photographs of her adorable little girl over the years!
I can’t believe I have lived in Virginia my entire life and have never been to Yorktown before (that I can remember, any way)! I had the best time exploring the area with Ariana and Chase. They were up for anything, so we chased the light and ended up getting some really beautiful photographs for them. I already can’t wait to go back and shoot! Here is a little peek at their couple’s session.

Katie wanted to surprise her husband with some portraits of herself and their girls with my unicorn on our little farm. We had the best time dancing in the fields and enjoying the warm sunshine. The girls did amazing and their session resulted in some absolutely stunning images that they selected on metal prints for their walls (metal wall art for the grandparents too!). I’m so excited to finally share a few images from this fun afternoon!

It’s no secret that the weather in Virginia lately has been a bit of a wet blanket lately (haha… see what I did there?), especially for photographers trying to get in all of their spring and early summer sessions! We lucked out with some dry weather and a happy toddler to create some sweet memories of this adorable family. I had such a fun time with them and their beautiful little girl! We got some of the cutest little expressions from her. Here is a little peek at their super cute family and unicorn session!
PS– this dress is now available for use in my client closet! Isn’t it gorgeous??

This family session was so amazingly fun! We shot at on my farm in Doswell and had the best time soaking up the golden sun on one of the last remaining warm days of the year. I love the fun, candid photographs that we get from family sessions. Genuine smiles, the little details and mannerisms… those are what stick out to me as a family photographer, and those are the things I want to remember as a mother myself. These crazy kids had me cracking up behind the camera too. Here is a little glimpse into their session.

Sierra’s golden hour senior session was nothing short of magical. The spot we decided to shoot is one of my favorites because of the way the light filters through the trees and lights up the frame with yummy, warm sunshine-y goodness! Check out this little preview of her portrait session!
